A TiVo is actually a special purpose computer. How many computers do you know of that have internal fuses? Besides, I think someone would have discovered that fact long before now.

There is a risk involved with replacing the Base Roamio's wall-wart. It enables the TiVo to draw more power than that for which it is (possibly) designed, increasing the risk of having warranty coverage denied.

Make sure it is a genuine LiteOn.
Hmmm...I think I might already have a couple of these. I need to check to make sure.

With my original Roamio Basic I specifically got the 1TB Red drive because it draws less power than the 500GB drive that came with it. But if I put the 3TB drive from my Roamio Pro in my refurbished Roamio then I want to make sure I have no power issues.

The TiVos that have internal power supplies have a fuse on the power supply board in the incoming 120V AC line, but no fuse on the motherboards as far as I know.

TiVos with outboard supplies probably won't have a fuse on the incoming +12V DC line, although there might be "something fusible"* inside the outboard power supply, in which case if it blows you replace it by getting a new outboard power supply.

*Kind of like a "fusible link" in car wiring.
