I currently have a Preimere Elite, that when I first got it I upgraded to a full 2TB drive. I decided to take advantage of the Thanksgiving special and grab a TiVo Romio Plus for $99. Although obviously it has a smaller Hard drive, and can only record about 150hrs of HD programing. Before... I just copied the old drive to the new drive and expanded it! Of course this worked. I can't remember what software I used to copy and expand. but I have it around somewhere... So my question are these... 1. Can I use that same software to copy the new drive in the romio to a larger hard drive? And what is the largest drive I can put in the Romio without extra "work". Is it a 3TB or a 4TB? 2. Can I just put the priemere drive into the Romio? 3. Can I copy the Premere drive to a newer drive and enlarge it, then put it in the Romio? 4. Is there a way to backup and save and move the content from one drive to another drive outside the TiVo? The problem I have is that I want to give away my Priemere Elite unit to a family member. But I have 180hrs of Copy protected shows on the Premere drive that I can't move to my computer, NAS or other TiVo's. (Ugg this is why I hate copy protection, I have the right to keep it them, I should have the right to protect them again'st loss. This is why I support bootlegging. Thanks TGC I did think about Weaknees.com jsut getting one of their drives. My gripe with them is their drives are always so overpriced! a 2TB drive for the Romio is $199! Geez... I have access to wholesale prices... sometimes even below. As I can get the exact same drive they sell, for $89! I understand that they put the TiVo OS on it. Fine... But that shouldn't be $110 more! More than the cost of the drive itself! Geez! Why is weaknees.com the only place that knows how to take a bare drive 2,3,4, or 6tb and put the TiVo OS on it to make it work? If they can do it, surely we can do it too!!! Anyone figure out their process????
