    I signed up for the beta testing back when the TivoHD was introduced. Even back then, there was wording in the docs that said you could be ineligible for participation if your hard drive was upgraded.
    On top of that, if the beta software happened to brick your Tivo, you were SOL on getting support to fix it.

    You took a big risk.

    In the original beta testing TiVo even asked if you had upgraded the drive and how big a drive you were using, then for some reason TiVo made anybody ineligible for beta if your drive was upgraded (DIY).

    Huh? So far, I've read nothing that would violate TiVo's NDA agreement. :confused:

    If I understand correctly, it's not against the NDA to admit to being in the beta program.
    You just can't talk about the subject of the beta test you are/were participating in.

    For tivo even admitting you are part of the beta, have ever been part of a beta, or that one you know exists, can break the NDA. I have heard they take any violation serious.

    The wording about being ineligible if you've upgraded is in the invitation email, so we could have read that without ever accepting the NDA.

    Man, that's what I get for glossing over these things. Oh well.
