    It says Ultra16 on the box and DiamondMax / Buffer Size: 16 mb on the side sticker. What does the 10 denote?

    It hasn't froze since I've reset the cable box so I still have a feeling (rather hope) it could be the digital cable.

    How exciting - I hope your wife is doing well, I always wanted twins until a friend had them and I found out that it really was double the work and then some.

    dang, i'd buy another 250 gig drive, but i would have to have someone else buy it for me and ship it somewhere else, because i just bought that 250 gig seagate and i can only do one rebate.

    300 gig seagate drive on outpost $80 AR
    http://shop2.outpost.com/product/4280824

    i love seagates and thats the only hard drive i will use from now on!
    this kinda sucks because i ordered the 250 gig seagate drive from outpost.com for $70 AR (still have to send the rebate in.)
    i love outpost.com i can order with ground shipping and i get it next day if i order before 4pm the previous day...because the nearest outpost place is about 2 hours from me.

    FREE GROUND SHIPPING TOO!
    (when you get past the credit card page and get to the review page, make sure you select ground shipping there, it defaults to select second day...i guess thats how they make a little money off of people not paying attention!)

    That 300GB Seagate is $70AR at Fry's. Both that one and the 250GB one are too noisy for my TiVos. Hope they will clear out the 7200.8 drives and get the supposedly much quieter 7200.9 drives in retail channels.

    If that's the 300GB Seagate with the 5 year warranty, its great for video server purposes.

    Put those babies into USB enclosures and hang 'em off your TiVoServer PC.

    Then see if you ever care if TiVo offers an FSI. :D :D

    Outpost and Fry's often have different prices. I bought both 250GB and 300GB drives and tested them in my TiVo. 250GB is going back, and 300GB will be used in PC. 7200.8 Seagate is noisier than Maxtor/WD/Hitachi/Samsung.
