image question

I recently purchased my 2nd Stand Alone TiVo. I had upgraded my first one and while doing that I made a backup of the image. Sometime in the future I will probably upgrade the 2nd unit. Should I keep a backup of that image also? If that unit ever dies, could I just use the image from the 1st unit? They are both S2 units, both starting with 240. and if I do use the image from the 1st unit, will the service number then be identical to the 1st unit? or does the hardware change the service number?

Yes, those units are equivalent.

However, if you use the backup on the other TiVo, that TiVo will have to do a 'clear and delete everything' reset before it will work properly. This is a rather time consuming process, so if you have its A drive in the PC anyway, you might want to make a compressed backup from that unit too.

The only thing is I do not have a FAT partion. So I would have to put the image on the new drive (first formate the new drive) and then put it on the computers drive. If the other image will work, then I will just skip this step.
