Ordered a WD AV-GP WD30EURX 3TB from Newegg, should be here in a couple of days. As I understand it, the upgrade should be pretty straightforward.
I have a backup of all season passes using kmttg. I'm also copying off any recordings that I'll want to have available after the upgrade, that's going through kmttg also, I can run them through tivodecode and send it back to the Roamio later with pytivo.
Open up the Roamio, swap out the drive, run it through guided setup again and it should be ready to go.
Am I missing any necessary steps? There's a couple things I'm unsure of at this point.
- The cable card, will I have to pair it again? CableOne was pretty good about that the last time at least.
- Software level: what version will be put on the new drive after the swap? Will I be at the current or have to update again?
