    HD failure

    Hi all, I had a the power turned off at my house and the hard drive on the TIVO packed up. Is there any South Island enthusiasts who can fix it? Im in Timaru South Canterbury.

    Alternatively can I get another TIVO and replace the faulty Hand Drive from it?
    Thanks for your help
    Ian

    The only thing to bear in mind is if you wanted to simply swap hard drives the donor TiVo needs to also be modded otherwise the hard drive won’t have the software patches to make it get guide data. So you’re back to square one needing someone to help you with some computer skills.

    If anyone can help Ian he just needs someone to load up a hard drive with the TiVo software. I’ve supplied him with the pre patched image and winmfs.

    Hi, I am in Christchurch and have a few spare TiVos, all modded and running. Planning a trip south soon, could drop off a runner?
