So my series 3 kept on rebooting. Tivo customer support recommended I do the hard drive test and sure enough the Primary disk failed with the extended test with the code of "Fail 7". Tivo said I need a new tivo. I just ordered the premiere. I still want to keep this tivo and put it in my bedroom so I can stream programs from my living room. So here is my issue. I want to do this for the least amount of money. I'm very tech savvy. I know I need to get a drive and load the image but I've read that i will not be able to use my extended Western Digital Drive if I do this. I don't mind the size of my primary hard drive cause I have the extender. So how should I go about this. I need to know which drive I should buy and if I can get the image off my existing HD rather than paying for the cake solution. Thank you guys in advance.
