    That's precisely what I'm going to do. I've imaged a 40GB drive for the 240, but it's little good it'll do without the power supply. So, likely the old 240 will go into the closet or landfill once I make the switch.

    I got the new to me S2DT last week before heading out on vacation. It had a dent in the front housing that the ebay listing had cropped out. The housing in general looked a little beat up as well. Bad on them for that, but it's functioning for now. Not bad for 12 bucks and I have the old 80GB drive as a backup.

    I popped in a 120GB drive preloaded with Instant Cake and after a C&D and a few forced connections I was good to go. It's been a while since I did a C&D and the TiVo seemed to be a little sluggish afterwards. After a few days to let all the indexing happen it still seems to be slightly slow compared to our other S2DT. I'm going to give it a couple of weeks before looking into alternatives, or see if anyone complains.

    This one is also co-located to my router and being able to plug directly in with cat5 is nice compared to the 240 I had before. Transfers from the pyTiVo server are fast and slick over ethernet. :up: I now have an extra TiVo wireless adapter to use as a backup. Maybe I'll sell it or something, I don't know. It did come in handy last week when I took a tivo on the road.
