    Since my DirectTV Tivo is reloading by itself, should i get back to 40 Mb Drive with software 6.3? If this is possible, can this be done by making a copy from my 120 Mb (hacked disk) to a new 40 Mb? It looks like so easy to me that i don't think is the right solution.

    Please, guide me to achieve this, all i want is to watch tv, and record a few hours.

    Unless the available tools have changed recently
    you cannot go from a larger drive to a smaller drive.

    If by "reload" you mean reboot and your current
    software version is 6.3e you might be able to
    get your unit working again by setting up a
    drive with software version 6.2 or older.

    If you have your original drive and it does
    not cause your system to reboot you can
    use MFS Live tools to create a new larger
    drive based on your original drive. Be sure
    to unplug the phone line to prevent the
    software from upgrading.

    If you don't have your original drive or it
    also causes the reboot problem you will need
    to get Instantcake to create a new drive or
    purchase a pre-loaded drive from WeaKnees
    that has the 6.2 or older software.

    And of course your problem could be something
    else entirely.
