Been a *long* time since I visited, good to see the community is still chugging along. I've had a stock TCD652160 that has been faithfully in service for my kids for years. I recently upgraded to a Roamio Pro for myself, and I'm replacing my kids' TiVo HD with a TiVo Mini.
I'm going to eBay the original TCD652160. I had a spare Toshiba 2TB drive sitting around, so I figured I'd see if I could maximize my profit and upgrade the TiVo HD using that drive. To my surprise, it worked flawlessly.
The last thing I want to do is to sell an upgraded TiVo on eBay that will have problems down the road. I let it run for awhile after the upgrade, and everything seemed okay, but I have to admit I haven't done a full burn-in.
Googling for the answer returns too much noise about the old Toshiba branded TiVo's, so I figured I'd ask the experts. Is using a Toshiba drive a generally accepted okay thing to do?
