    The hard drive is only component likely to fail within five years. Most TiVos should last 10+ years if you replace the drive every three years (on average).

    You might see what TiVo shows during CES in 3-4 weeks before deciding whether to add lifetime to your current unit.

    Are you using Dolby Digital out? There's another thread on here where lots of people are having issues with audio drops when outputting DD.

    Here is what is happening to me:

    Audio is fine from TivoHD to HDTV over HDMI.
    Audio cuts on live and recorded tv when going through a receiver using the digital connection. I also have the tivo hooked via analog and can switch the receiver over - On analog everything is fine. Issues occur when switching to the digital connection. Have not tried the techniques described in this thread. Guess I will need to now.
    Have had the tivo for about 2 years and this just started 1 month ago... Today (christmas of all days) it has gotten worse. At least I can watch through my tv speakers but it just aint the same. Someone please tell me there is a way to fix this!!!

    OK. I have been following CES coverage, and I have not heard anything regarding a new TiVo. The only thing that I have read about was the TiVo Premier, which doesn't seem to be a viable alternative to the TiVo HD anyway. What drive should I be looking at now? I am looking for a 1TB. My two options now seem to be the


    WD AV drive:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136141&cm_re=AV_WD-_-22-136-141-_-Product

    74.99 at NewEgg plus shipping


    WD Caviar Green:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Western...rive/8492026.p?id=1186003685416&skuId=8492026

    99.99 at my local Best Buy, this means no shipping, and no worrying about Newegg shipping a bare drive


    WD Caviar Black:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Western...tops/8909595.p?id=1213047091732&skuId=8909595

    Also 99.99 at Bestbuy Same pros as WD Green


    What is everyone's opinion? Right now I am leaning towards the AV drive. Can anyone vouch for NewEggs shipping of bare drives? Is there anywhere locally I may be able to get one?
