New box to old box

Message 4 of 4

Just received my new TT Box. The package says it’s compatible with my old box. How? I need access to the recordings on the old box, whilst being able to enjoy the new one. I want to avoid having to switch cables, plug in antennas to watch certain programmes, and finding that both boxes have recorded the same programme! (these are all things a previous ‘solution’ suggested would happen)

Thanks

The new boxes usually don't record (DN360T) , they are purely view what's live and the on demand content.

 

TT have not supplied recording boxes since the beginning of the year. Please advise the model that you have received.

 

As @ferguson said, to purely watch your recordings from the old box you only need a spare HDMI input on your TV. I have bought an HDMI splitter and an aerial splitter for mine so that I can also record the FREEVIEW channels to the old box.

If this has helped and solved your problem, please mark it as "Accepted Solution" from the 3 dot dropdown menu in the bottom right of this post so that staff or others do not spend time looking for alternatives. If you like the answer please feel free to click the "Like Button"

@havanacafe Do you have a spare HDMI socket on your TV? That's all you need to watch recordings on the old box, you don't need it connected to an aerial for that purpose.

HI

 

recordings cannot be transferred between boxex and you will have to watch the recordings on the old box.

 

Thanks  

 

Karl.
