    If you're using a non-AV drive (like most of us) AND the drive supports AAM, you can crank it down from "more performance" to "quieter" and the Tivo will never know the difference.

    I recently did an upgrade using an image from drives that were last in the machine in August 2013.

    It took at least four forced connections and most of a day before everything was in sync and indexed.

    Before it was all finally working, there were all sorts of weird things going on - I had guide data, but the box complained I did not, it couldn't find shows I could see were in the guide, season passes claimed no upcoming shows to record although I could see them in the guide, etc.

    They key was, on the System Info screen near the bottom, the 'indexed to' date had to match the current connect date, then everything was happy.
