I have a tivo series 4 premiere that I got in the fall of 2011. Have a lifetime sub on it, only do it for OTA
I believe it can record 47 hours HD, so that's what a 250 gb or 320 gb hard drive? Anyways, I'm not a computer genius, but I'm not terrible at computers either. Do I need linux to swap drives out? Or can I have windows 8 like I do now? I saw linux mentioned so I got worried. I know how to run a boot cd, or how to make a flash drive bootable.
Also, is it that much harder to put a 3 or 4 tb hard drive into a tivo series 4 premiere? I have a spare 2 tb handy, which is probably more than I'd ever need in the first place, but if it's not much more difficult to put in a 3 or 4 tb, I might just do that.
I don't care about keeping my programs either that's already on the hard drive, or the season pass settings, all I care about is getting the MAX amount of space on the tivo. thanks a million!
Also, do I need to know the EXACT model number of my tivo for anything in the process? Thank you!
