    Mileage will always vary. If you rarely interact with your TiVo and have a HUGE NPL (lots of short recordings, for instance), then the first time you try to display the NPL in awhile will take a lot longer than if you did it 30 minutes ago. Same thing goes for sorting season passes and dealing with other large lists with inter-dependencies.

    We've been doing 750GB and 1TB drives in Series2 units for quite some time now and haven't heard any complaints, so chances are you'll be happier with the capacity increases than with any performance issues that might arise...

    Using the PATA-SATA adapter will not affect performance at all.

    I cant find a place to get this...can anyone help me?

    NEVER MIND...i just bought the instant cake version..

    one more update....it wasnt the hdd...I caked it and it still wouldnt boot.

    Fortunately I had a spare S2 with similar internals and switched the power supply and it fired. Too bad I didnt try this before wiping the hdd....

    Still, you first suspected a HDD failure??
    What symptoms later turned out to be the power supply?

    Others could benefit from your experience . . .
    couldn't hurt to replace the fan, also.

    Yes, I first suspected hdd failure...It seems to be the most common isssue with Tivos and is generally an easy fix. And i corroborated my symptoms (stuck on power up screen) with some other users who said a hdd replacement solved their woes.

    Anyhow, so after replacing the hdd with freshly 'instantcaked' one, I still could not get boot. It SOUNDED like the drives were spinning, but i noticed that the light on the front wasnt going on...except intermittently when unplugging the box...something was strange with the plug, or the psu...i couldnt find a spare plug, but i had a spare old S2 tivo with similar almost identical looking psu. I gave it a try and it booted and the lights came on and everything was good. I didnt have a spare fan (the one from the old tivo was noisy)

    The only other thing that happened was a error code 51 which I googled to discover that I needed to clear and delete everything because of the freshened hdd. That solved the error code...

    Thanks. Mine self-reboots, but can't get beyond the (green) GSOD.
    Seems to be a different problem, most likely the HDD.

    Well little did I know that DirecTV would be the ones to put a stop to my Tivo DVR dreams...

    Three different CSR's, a supervisor, and two card CSR's and they would NOT re-marry my card to the new Tivo. They would ONLY send me a new card for the low low price of $20. I know they can re-marry the cards, I've done it at least twice before and I told them as much, but they would not budge.

    As an alternative the card CSR offered me a leased unit, with no contract, and no additional fee. Free shipping and handling as well... (apparently the contracts ended 2 weeks ago, according to this CSR, they don't do that anymore).

    How does this make financial sense for DTV? Re-marry the card for nearly 0 cost... OR send me a whole new unit for 0 cost to me? Well... whatever. Their loss I guess.

    Also, the card CSR told me that in Feb. they would start offering the actual Tivo units again. I'm sure that's here somewhere, but thought I would mention it.

    This sounds *very* suspicious to me; you may want to double-check that with another CSR...

    I just got the new unit today along with the new access card. I haven't opened the boxes yet or opened the mailer with the access card in it, I wanted to call and confirm first.

    I just spoke with a CSR who confirmed that I'm still under no contract with DTV at this point.

    You'll have a new contract once you open the box and activate the card. It does not matter what they tell you... you will get one.

    .....

    can i use the same iso on two different tivo hd units?

    e.g.

    i pulled the original hdd from my registered and working tivo hd. i used that drive to upgrade to a 1tb hdd so it has the same info as my original

    can i now clone a 2d hdd for another tivo hd? or does the hdd contain unique info?

    You can use the same image, just realize that after running setup on the unit you will have to "Clear and Erase Everything" from the Tivo settings.

    My S2 drive died this weekend. Not looking to invest much money in it, just live out my 12 mos without buying another machine.

    Anyone have access to a backup image of a TCD240?
    PM me if possible.
    Thanks!
