    What are the recommended drives to upgrade a Premiere nowadays? Just wondering cause i finally decided i want to go to 2 TB.

    I really do not want to have to screw with the drive much before using it other then transferring the software with conors tools

    I bought two of the 2TB drives from these guys. Excellent vendor. Reliable!! Drives come completely pre-formated. Could not be easier to install. Plug-and-Play. Truely. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-TiVo-Premiere-2TB-Hard-Drive-Upgrade-Kit-/320627171474?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4aa6de6092

    If you want to copy a smaller drive to a new larger one .. I've done this in the past and it works just fine. http://www.rosswalker.co.uk/tivo_upgrade/

    If you want to keep your existing shows then you can do the upgrade yourself. See this thread for details.

    You may want to re-post your question there since that's where the upgrade experts hang out. :)

    If you don't care about the existing contents then Xberk's eBay link looks like a good option. Note the auction claims that drive is only for a Premiere, so if you have a Premiere XL you'd probably need different software.
