    Hi! Just joined, never posted before. I've been using Tivo since 2001. I currently have a TivoHD as my main machine. I had a Tivo Expander for a few months, but I guess it died as I could no longer boot up my Tivo. So I disconnected it (Lost all my new shows, boo) and now since I'm having reboot issues, I'm thinking it's the hard drive, and thinking of getting a new one, with higher capacity. So before I do that, I want to transfer my saved shows onto the computer. It took 1 and 1/2 hours to transfer 1 hour of an HD show. Is this normal? Is it faster using a Premiere? That would be my other option, to just get a Premiere rather than a new hard drive on the TivoHD. I also have a Humax DVD Tivo and use the Multi Room Viewing, would I no longer be able to do that if I got the Premiere? Thanks for any help!

    Yes, the Premiere transfers much faster than realtime. Depending on your network it can take only 10 minutes or so for a one hour HD show.
