Thread: Hack for External or Larger HDD ?

  1. #21
    I thought someone clever might have imaged the external that you could load onto any other external drive (unless its hardware locked).
    Just got my HD today, so time to set everything up tonight.
    Any other tips I should do?

    The specific external drive used is hardware locked if you wanted to use the onscreen interface. This can be bypassed once the PROM has been replaced.

    The only advice I would give is that if you can live with a single 1-1.2Gb drive (~200 hours HD/400 Hours SD) then don't use an external drive at all. If either drive fails you are in trouble and by having 2 drives, you double the chance of one of the drives failing.

    Please search this forum and our Website for your TiVo questions before starting a new thread. Thanks!
