    Hi,
    Friend of mine tried to upgrade a HD from 40G to whatever on a Hughes DVR40
    actually locked the drive then dunno what he did but the Tivo won't boot.

    I am wondering if there is anything I can do with it?
    Load a new os on another HD and use it as a photo display or whatever, ...

    Any ideas ?

    I'll take it!

    I bought a RCA DVR40 at a garage sale with a dead hard drive. Took all of two hours to get it up and recording shows. Do some reading on this site and you'll find out how easy it can be.

    You could get the Instant Cake image for the DVR40 and install it on a new drive.
