Does opening my Tivo void the warranty of the whole unit, or just the hard drive?

    Hi,

    I have a series 2 dual tuner that I just bought (I also have an upgraded older Series 2 single tuner that was upgraded last year). I can see that 80 hours isnt enough.

    If I open the Tivo case, does that void the warranty completely? I am guessing the Tivo has a 1 year warranty on the unit.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    If there is a seal you have to break then it will void the warranty for the whole unit. At least that's the way it is for my series 1 TiVos.

    If it's opened, it's voided. But, if there's no warranty seal, then who's to say what's voided and what's not ;)

    Yes, opening the TiVo can void the warranty.

    Opening the TiVo itself technically voids the warranty, but they can't tell that way, at least without deep forensics.
