    I just picked up a second Sony SAT-T60 DirecTV/Tivo unit. Will I have to pay for another Tivo "lifetime subscription" fee to use it?

    Just curious if anyone else has done this.

    AFAIK, one lifetime subscription gets mirrored for all DirecTiVo units. I think it's different for the standalone units, where you'd have to purchase additional subscriptions. The only requirement is that they are connected to the same phone line and are on the same DirecTV account. Your best bet is to check out TiVo Community Forum -- the guys there know for sure as they have multiple units and multiple configurations.

    Well, I wish that were the case. I found this on the Tivo website:

    Camp, if both your receivers are SAT-T60, then you can have just one subscription. Take a closer look at TiVo FAQ paragraph that talks about the combo units.
