Just a quick note for anyone considering changing the hd himself (or herself
). Following the detailed instructions in the sticky at the top of this forum (http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=370784
), the process could not be more straightforward. I "upgraded" to a 500Gb drive from the original 250Gb one and if I had it to do over again I'd do one thing differently. I followed the instructions to preserve settings and recordings. What I did NOT think to do was first "permanently" delete all items in the "recently deleted" folder. Accordingly, it took 6 hours to copy everything over. Absent that, it couldn't have gone more smoothly.
Thanks to bkdtv for creating that post - it's absolutely great.
