Nope... not at all. I haven't had a bit of trouble with it until the other day. It seems to be ok right now... but I have had to reboot once since then and always unplug my network cable before letting it reboot.
My father in law just emailed me about his sick tivo. He just ordered new drives for his... he has the same unit as mine... and he asks....
I have this little quick drive thing that I can pop an internal hard drive into and it plugs into my usb port.
Can I copy the entire disk onto my machine hard drive, load a blank 160 into the quick drive and write it all back so the second will be a fully functioning clone of the first?
Whatcha think? It there are complications to that allow me to propose one further option:
I get a second quick drive thing and load the blank 160 into that and just do a straight click and drag from the tivo drive to the blank. Any ideas if that would work? Anything I might look for like hidden files or something like that?
He is trying to learn how to copy... so I am going to steer him this way.
Thanks for all your help guys.... we're reading and learning as we go.
