If I upgrade the hard drive, will the Lifetime Service remain?

I have a fantasy that I could upgrade my way way old-school 80GB TiVo to a 160GB using MFStools or wahtever that stuff is.

But then I am afraid that the "Lifetime Service" status will disappear.

What should I do?

=== === ===

Does anyone want to buy an 80GB analog TiVo with Lifetime service?

Lifetime is tied to the Tivo Service Number or TSN that's on the motherboard, it's not affected by changes in the hard drive.

I have a fantasy also. But it has nothing to do with Tivo.

Actually you could upgrade to one or two 1TB hard drives.

What is the model number of that lifetimed unit?

(should start with TCD)
