    Did you know there was a Tivo app for that? I certainly didn't.

    I'd heard people talking about it last year. But I also figured it was cheaper just to use TiVo Desktop on a PC or on a WHS.

    ...and it's probably broken by the cookie bug.

    Of course, you could fix that by installing pyTivo on it. :)

    That would not be expected since those titles are not allowed to be transferred from the box they were recorded on.

    For those that have are familiar with the netgear - kmttg also offers archiving based on selecting KUID. Do you know if this works basically the same as the netgear, or are there differences?

    BTW, the nas in the link above does not include 2 3TB drives.

    They sell 2TB TiVos now... Probably better to upgrade when the 6-tuner comes out in the fall to a 2 or 3TB TiVo than set up this contraption...

    That's a *lot* of money! Also, don't they do something weird like "mirror" your Tivo contents? So IIRC, it wasn't as much for having additional offline storage like I'd want (I'd *also* want to back up my current recordings if they were transferrable).

    One of the 4 bay SATA boxes like http://www.amazon.com/Mediasonic-HF2-SU2S2-ProBox-Enclosure-Drives/dp/B002UUPWP6 look intriguing.. yes I realize they DON'T copy off of a Tivo themselves.

    I've been using seven of those with my WHS for over two years(one with eSATA, six with USB). They have worked great for storage. With those plus the four drives in my WHS I have 56TB of storage for my WHS to use.

    HOLY ****. Someone needs a delete key! I got the XL4 because I may end up with roommates at some point, but I'd be unlikely to hit 250GB. 56TB is just insane! I do find it funny we're going back and forth on AVS and TCF.

    I'm not using them with my TiVos. I store copies of my BDs on there. But my WHS is only around half my network storage. I have a TiVo Desktop machine with around 5TB for use with my TiVos. But for other network storage I have a 32TB unRAID, an 11TB unRAID, and several other NAS devices adding around seven more Terabytes.

    Dang.. I wish some of these NAS devices would get 'cheap'. Instead, I'm looking at one of the $99-ish computer-connected devices (I'd basically call it a "multi-drive external case", though you can use computer-controlled RAID I guess) to use the cheap drives in.

    Storage is as cheap as ever. The only thing that's not getting way cheaper way faster is bandwidth, and even that is making progress by increasing speed significantly with minimal cost increases.

    Well it's not as cheap as ever. The last time I purchased a dozen or so hard drives, I paid around $65 for each 2TB drive. They aren't back to prices that low yet. What are they at now? around $100 for a 2TB drive? That's still around 50% higher than when they were at the lowest prices.
