Moving hard drive to new Simple.TV DVR

  • Simple.TV Dual Tuner (Second Generation)
  • Simple.TV Single Tuner (First Generation)

Question:
When upgrading to a Simple.TV Dual Tuner (second generation) model, can I use the same hard drive and keep my recordings?

Answer: 
Yes. When setting up your new Simple.TV Dual Tuner (second generation) you may choose to use the same hard drive you used with a single tuner (first generation) DVR model.  

As part of the setup process, you will be message that the hard drive connected already has recordings and can select to erase the drive or keep your existing recordings.  Once the setup has been complete, any shows you had recorded on the connected hard drive will be available to you.

Note: Once a hard drive has been prepared for use with a Simple.TV Dual Tuner model, you may not be able to move that hard drive back to a single tuner model and keep your recordings.
