    Is there a hard drive upgrade FAQ for the Tivo HD Series 3? I'm looking for info like HD speed like 5400, 7200, 10k? Interface type like PATA, SATA? Thanks. :)

    Those are some pretty basic questions. Check out the "Underground" forum on this site.

    To answer some easy ones for you:
    1) S3 only uses SATA
    2) The speed is irrelevent for the S3, so the slower the better (since slower = cooler). However most drives are 7200 now. The WD 1TB "green" drive is great. Definitely don't get a 10K drive - way too expensive, and way too hot.
