I want to backup my TiVo boxes, and have a couple questions:
1 - To do this I think I need to remove the drive and hook it up to the computer and make an image, is that correct?
2 - I know upgrading to a bigger drive in your TiVo voids the warranty. From what I'm reading, when you install a new drive, it sends TiVo a message. What if I pull the drive out, make a backup, then put the same drive back in the machine? Does that void the warranty as well?
I know I can buy a CD with the image, the reason I'm doing this is so that if one of the drives goes out I don't have to pay Time Warner to come back out and spend 30 seconds to install the cable card again.
That is the whole reason I'd be doing this, to avoid the extra expense in the event that it crashed. Can someone validate my thinking, or does the hard drive have nothing to do with the cable card?
