    I've just found another branded adaptor that seems to work in allowing SATA discs to be connected to a Tivo's IDE cable.

    It is branded Lycom and is model ST-106-2. It looks exactly like the Startech one however my eyesight wasn't good enough to read if it used the same Marvell chipset - the writing was about a tenth of a millimetre high.

    Has been chugging away in my Dev Tivo now for 2 days attached to a 500GB 2.5" Samsung HM500JI. Also used it to build the image on a PC.

    I found a page on google which says it uses the Marvell 88SA8052 chipset, so nice one :up: Less than £11 from Scan computers.

    Good find :) and a little bit cheaper than the StarTech ones I think.
