Is there a way to copy shows from one dtivo to another? Any way from within the tivo software? Or would this have to be a command issued from a PC? Any software I can install to do what home media option does?

Sorry, very noob questions. But I've been reading for days and I just need a pointer to where to search.

"Is there a way to copy shows from one dtivo to another?"
yes, mfs_ftp will do that

"Any way from within the tivo software?"
nope. hmo does that sort of thing, but its limited, and only works on sa s2 units which have had the upgrade.

"Or would this have to be a command issued from a PC?"
yup, pretty much

"Any software I can install to do what home media option does?"
there is some stuff in beta (searching for hmo on here doesnt turn up too many results, so the few are fairly pertinent)

"But I've been reading for days and I just need a pointer to where to search."
the extraction area has all the info related to pulling shows into and out of tivos
