    Now that I have a Roamio basic in service, my excitement has increased. I really like the facelift on the interface. Granted, part of my joy is the improved picture from HDMI from previous component cables. It didn't expect the quality to be so noticeably improved. I like that the basic is small since it will need to share space in the cabinet with a 2-3 TB drive eventually.

    Why would you not just upgrade the internal HDD to 2TB since it appears to be an easy upgrade?

    The 3 year warranty -- wouldn't an upgrade void that?

    A 1 TB WD external drive is working well on my Premiere. I might just move it to the Roamio since after 1 year I'm using less than 30%.

    Yes, an upgrade could void your 3yr warranty, several posters here have claimed to not have any issues though. But if you kept the original HDD and reinstalled it prior to contacting TiVo for an RMA, you should be fine IMO.

    I also would never use an external HDD that was over 3 yrs old and running 24/7, not a good idea.

    My lifetimed HD. I used to transfer to my laptop using Tivo Desktop, but honestly haven't bothered in ages. Most of my favorite shows are on USA Network,,so I just buy the season and watch wherever. The shows being recorded on my Tivo wait until I'm home. Then again, since weekly travel limits your free time, I most likely watch a lot less tv than most people...
