why? so you could record 1 or 2 shows?
Im pretty positive a 3TB will work fine however I don't have one to try out. 4TB I would only be worried due to weakness reporting a 'bug'. 300 HD hours is plenty for my 2 roamio's each though
Just curious but why did you buy two? Gonna set one to cable and one to OTA? Or do you have some other scenario in mind?
I wanted to have one in my bedroom and one in my brother's bedroom. We both record allot so each having 4 tuners and 2 TB of space will meet both our needs.
In case there aren't any data points for the Plus model yet -
I purchased a Plus earlier this evening, removed the 1 TB drive and replaced it with a spare 2 TB EZRX WD Green I had. The drive had an NTFS partition with no data on it beforehand. It took about 4 minutes to go from first boot to the beginning of Guided Setup. I've gone through a series of downloads, updates, and reboots since then. The info screen on my Roamio Plus shows roughly the same recording capacity as a Premiere with a 2 TB drive. I did not boot the stock drive before attempting the build from blank replacement.
So they deleted the temperature sensor from the Basic? I wonder if the Plus/Pro has one.
What the heck do you think DVRBars runs on, a toaster?
I for one would love for him to boot up some flavor of a linux utility disk and get a partition map if there is one. If there isn't one, it isn't likely that there is any point to running DVRBars.
With a reported capacity of 316 hours, it seems at least that they have finally reduced the amount of space allocated for TiVos use to a reasonable amount, thus making "supersize" unnecessary.
I can boot with partition magic and check out the stock hard drive. Give me a few minute to drag the PC up here and set it up. I will take a photo to show whatever is there (if anything).
Thats really strange. I cant remember if they all had it, but the most recent ones I remember. Wonder why they took it off?
Temp is listed in System Information as MBT: 45
MBT (Mother Board Temp) is listed right above Remote Address:
With the stock drive hooked up and booting off the live partition magic disc this is the result...
Not bad at all!! Thanks!!
As far as whats on the drive, I think Tivo is just throwing blank drives in the boxes, I could be wrong.
Thanks. So a totally blank disk. I assume this is the one you never set up.
Any chance you do the same for the stock disk you did set up? Of course , it would also be nice to see one of the 2TB's and DVRBars of both of them but I don't really want to ask that of you. You've done an awful lot already.
Since the second 1TB drive was run through setup, could always plug that in and see if it is still marked as unallocated.
Sure thing guys, I'll hook up the 500GB drive that DID go through the setup. I don't want to take out the 2TB drives because of laziness for lack of a better excuse lol I'm super hyped they are both upgraded and ready when ever Charter decides to come over
Photo to follow shortly of stock drive that was setup.
Certainly appears that way, at least with the Basic.
ok guys (and girls) after doing the same with with stock drive that did go through setup it read exactly the same. unallocated with the same space as well. I didn't take a photo because it's identical to the previous photo. What that means? I have no clue lol
