-- Want to downgrade software version without losing recordings!!! (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=182319)

My supposition is that the Sony originally came with 2.0 or greater (if the 40Gig drive was Sony stock, that would be a sure sign there), and the upgraded software knows how to check if the unit is one of the types that allows manual recording or not, in which case, by rights, you are not entitled to recording without subscription, and further discussion would be essentially theft of service.

PS: What is the manuf date on the Tivo, and what software is on the 40 Gig drive, and can it manually record without subscription.

Tivo is Sony SVR2000, 80 GB HDD.
Why do you keep rewinding that? Because with TiVo, I can.
