    -looks over at his Antec Nine Hundred- :)

    He commented on 230mm fans and implied multiples of the 200-230mm sizes. The Antec case only has one 200mm.

    Maybe we start an Antec Nine Hundred thread because I LOVE mine. :) It does need a new X6 Phenom in there however... ;)

    Hey All - my Premiere is on the way and should be here on Monday. I'm looking for advice as to whether I wait a little while before upgrading the hard drive, or if I just do it right away?
    Obviously downside to upgrading straight away will be the loss of the warranty.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think that if you replaced it right away, and later put the original back in it and sent it back, wouldn't they notice that it hasn't received any updates?

    Tivo knows that you put a new disk to begin with :) It's connected to the net. So point is moot when you do it the second time. But point is also that Tivo has not prosecuted anybody for just replacing the disk, yet. Call it "gray area". ;)

    My Tivo Premiere is coming today, but I was going to go hold off on the 2TB upgrade until after I am sure that the family is happy with it. I have Comcast coming out on Monday for the Cablecard install. Is it better to do the drive upgrade AFTER the cable card install or before?

    Toms River,...
    Why not just crack open the dvr expander, and pop in a larger TB AV hard drive?
