Anyone have use for original TCD652160 hard drive?

Not sure if it's worth selling? Anyone on the board have use for it? (Beyond wiping it and using it as regular HD)

Nope. It's easy to get a truncated image for that model.

That hard should have more value to you.
I assume you upgraded your Tivo using a larger size hard drive and now you have a 'spare'.
What you should do is put that original hard drive on the shelf. Why? One day that upgraded hard drive will fail. When it does, you'll be glad you saved the original, either for copying to a new hard drive or installing back into the Tivo for emergency recording.

I have one that I keep in case I need to replace the drive in my one remaining S2 box. As was pointed out, re-imaging boxes up through S3HD is an easy process. If you have an S3HD, then it might be worth keeping just in case your current drive goes out when there's another drive shortage.

When I answered, I was unaware you were selling the unit from which the drive came.

You should include it as part of that package so that the buyer has it to fall back on if the upgrade drive you installed gives trouble.
