Two Tivos networked is the way to go...

Last week I took advantage of the $100 discount on TiVo ’s and bought a second 80hr box. Now I have two 80hr boxes, one in the living room, one in the master bedroom and have both networked via a wired connection. Although it took from Friday to Sunday evening for the multi room viewing to get enabled, it is well worth it.

I was somewhat surprised that it didn’t stream the video between the two boxes though… it appears to actually copy the file. However it looks like you can watch the show while it’s still copying. Doesn’t seem to slow either TiVo down while copying either which is very cool.
