We are upgrading from Nextbox 2.0 to 3.0 in a few days.
Sales guy told me that I would be able to transfer all our saved programs from old box to new box, but that he wouldn't be able to tell me how as its not an official Rogers process that they stand behind. He said Google it and I'll be able to figure it out.
So far its not looking like its going to be possible. Everything I'm finding implies that with some hassles I can extract stuff to the computer by outputing and re-recording it on the computer, but I don't see any way to get stuff onto the new box, which is the only point.
Pretty much, you can not transfer between the two boxes.. bar MAYBE if you moved the hard drive from one to the other? even that i dont think would work properly.
In most cases.. what i have recomeneded to people.. is to have a small carry over period. Have BOTH boxes. Start all new recordings on the new one, while watching off the old one till all watched. (though this doesnt help if there is stuff wanted to keep more LONG term)
better question is why can't files be transferred. At the end of the day they are just files on a hard dive I have a next box 2.0 that I need to reboot daily to watch stuff on, and having to run 2 boxes just to catch on shows is very obtuse. I don't get why even if it has to be done in store they can't just connect the 2 and download.
