TiVo HD & HDXL replacement hard drives

Allright here we go.. I don't want to sound ghetto with this thread but I have a few drives i've been using for diagnostics and all are ready to go. Since they are already pre-formatted for various TiVo's I figured I'd put them up here in case someone that doesnt want to mess around with internal drives. If im breaking forum rules please LMK.

S3 TiVo HD:
sold2 x Stock 160gb drive (20 hours HD) $45 shipped
soldWD Blue Caviar 640gb (90 hours HD) $80 shipped
soldWD Black Caviar 750gb (105 hours HD) $80 shipped

S3 TiVo HD XL:
soldStock 1tb drive (150 hours HD) $90 shipped

These are ready to go, just take out your dead drive and swap and run guided setup. Have ebay credentials and can go through there if preferred.

You would need to run Clear & Delete Everything, before you run Guided Setup, since they are from Tivos with different Service numbers.

I'll make sure to tell buyers

The TiVo will detect a change in cable cards and will ask to do guided setup anyways

2 drives gone original post updated

I believe that it detects a change in crypto chip and then needs a C&DE.

What are the voltage/current numbers listed on the label of the 750GB Caviar Black?

The 160GB drives can be reimaged and used in older boxes like the S2's. Can't see you getting $45/each for them, though.

That's an idea. I was using the other drives to test though and don't have an s2'to test the imaged drives with.

As long as you can verify that the drives are good, there won't be any issue with someone using them in an S2 box. Any time I get a new drive or pull one out of a Tivo I run the WD long drive test on it before it goes into another Tivo or on the shelf as a spare. The 160GB drives from the S3HD and the 320GB drives from the Premiere are nice upgrades for an S2 box with the right IDE to SATA adapter. I speak from experience.
