    Hi All,

    Have finally got round to taking steps to upgrade my Tivo.

    I actually have two tivos, my lifetime sub machine that I bought new and an unsubbed box I bought off eBay so that I can practice on.

    I have a 250Gb drive to upgrade with, am not woried about saving recordings or season passes but do have a couple of questions.

    1. Can someone recommend the best guide on doing your own upgrade and where do I get an image of the Tivo software to put on the drive.

    2. If I do the upgrade on my unsubbed Tivo, can I run the guided setup without a valid subscription and then once I have that Tivo working, just remove the drive and put it in my "best" Tivo thereby giving me zero downtime.

    Thanks in advance

    Keith
