greg_burns, that is way too cool. I was starting to get a bit tired of looking at my bedroom s3 with the covery half way open. Now I know what to do. Thanks for the great pic of the scissor as well so I know what to grab at my local Home Depot. c3, I really don't have much time to watch tv. Most of the time it just stays on in the background. Almost all of my S3 RAID build and testing was done in the middle of the night. You'd be surprised at how much energy can be derived from a pot of coffee, some red bull and mountain dew at 3 a.m. on a work day. Yeah I get a little obsessive. I mainly did this to contribute to this forum. I had one of these RAID boxes laying around the office so I decided to give it a try. Also just a note I upgraded my Living room S3 to 750GB and noticed that my eSata RAID bedroom S3 is much faster when connecting to tivo and loading the data. I did a side by side comparison after a clean delete and repeat guided setup. I did this 3 times just to verify. However, I do not notice any slowness or diferences when recording and watching shows.
