I have a Tivo Series 2 40GB unit that I have been trying to upgrade to a 320gb drive. I have been using the Hinsdale instructions and testing on every step. The unit worked fine at every test until I tried to expand the unit to use the full drive.
The tools said that the process went through fine and I had something like 326 extra minutes of recording time vs the original. I installed the hard drive back into the Tivo and now I get the first start up screen and it then it turns grey.
I assume either I ^%$#$# something up converting the drive or the power supply quit and won’t start up the hard drive. Maybe the flux capacitor died…I don’t know.
I tried the Tivo drive and the backup hard drive I have and the same problem. Is it dead or am I missing something?
