All good info...thanks very much!
And for the record, he can install it, get the hardware error, and do the CADE on that end.
Are you a mac guy? got any friends with a newer pc?
Can you return the MYDVR and get a 1TD HD & enclosure?
If so and you've got a friend with a pc (with a eSATA port) then you can take the upgraded 750HD & the new 1TB over to their computer & do the upgrade.
Another option is jut replace the 750G with a larger drive. Not as big an upgrade. Per this faq, you can go to 1.26T, so 66% bigger than what you have.
Still poses the problem of needing a PC with SATA. (See my next post, in case you're in my area.)
You can "Broflovski".
This mean anything to anyone? Sure, the South Park character. But otherwise, a complete non sequitur, no?
It's a reference to this post by a TCF member going by that name...
You'd still require a PC to upgrade, but it's possible to use the hack to get the full space out of a 1.5TB or 2TB hard drive.
I was thinking it'd be quicker at the friends house, to marry the two HD's than transferring all his shows to a new internal. Of course if there's beer & sports involved then time isn't so much the issue.
Depends on the friend's hardware. My Pentium II took 20 hours to do a backup|restore (recently upgraded to a Pentium III....I know, I'm a cheapskate).
That is odd. In the past, I have been able to use NewEgg codes for the maximum allowed (although I have gotten "already used" errors if I subsequently try to use it again.) I just got several Samsung 2TB drives last week from them using one code ($120 each!). I hope you can get that resolved.
There's some interesting budget builds at tom's hardware;
Warning tho, building new rigs is as addictive as upgrading tivos.
...but costs way more...as in an overclocked E8400/P5Q Pro for my wife!
I was trying to obtain the Mr. Broflovski's image for drives greater than 1G. I am supposed to PM him, but can not as I have not posted 5x yet.( but here is 2 I guess )
Yes, that's one of the rules to thwart spammers...used to be 10 IIRC. Anyway, find a couple of more things to discuss and you should be good to go.
Did you buy the drive preloaded w/ software then??
Any 2 GB drive suggestions from anyone?
They don't make them that small anymore.
The reviews of it on Newegg.com aren't that encouraging:
Also, as I see above, I have to boot the drive off of a bootable CD to deal with the idle issue.
Since it looks like my DVR Expander seems to have killed off my internal drive in one of the Tivo HDs I have and now I'm stuck with looking for a plan B solution. I'm trying to find drive options that would work as a 1TB replacement for the internal drive.
Any reason why I should pick the GP-AV right here:
Over this drive here:
The WD10EVCS is showing as discontinued, so I'm assuming the EVDS replaced it and the FAQ hasn't been updated yet.
Any ideas if anyone is working on a 648250 image that can expand to a >1tb drive?
