    I have 3 direcTivo's, a SD-40 and HDVR2 and a HR-250.

    I have zippered the SD-40 and HDVR2 and they work beautifully. I have a couple questions before I attack the HR-250.

    I used Instantcake / Zipper on the other DTivos.

    I plan to do the same with the HR-250. In reading the forums I see information that confuses me. When the HR-250 is hacked as above, does it open up the same hacks as the other machines? Will HMO and MRV work? I am most interested in MRV, If so though, what happens when a show that was recorded in HD try to play on the other machines?

    Another issue is whether to use my original HD (instead of purchasing a new one). Not the $$, but losing my recordings and settings. Is there a way to avoid this?

    Thanks for the fast reply as I want to do this today or tomorrow if possible.

    There won't be HMO/MRV on a zippered HDTivo. The code is only part of 6.2.
    You can purchase a new drive and use mfstools to backup and restore the old one.
