Also it appears to have an issue when you disable the head park feature (not mine specifically - this model drive in general).
Does anyone know about this?
They work fine, in both respects, as well as working very well.
Only issue is that you can not adjust the drive acoustic management setting.
They can be rather noisy when they are hard at work, from my experience.
Some say they are quiet. I'm never close enough to care, when watching TV. I actually turn AAM off, on drives that allow adjustment, because it provides a small amount of added seeking performance (even according to the drive's full specification documentation). But, I doubt it matters in a TiVo. I like to be able to put my ear up close to my TiVos and hear just how busy the drives are.
If anybody has found a way to adjust the acoustics, or has found an EZRX with firmware that allows it, now would be a good time to speak up.
I have a suspicion the chip that would normally exist for AAM, is not present on these drives.
