    Guess I'll keep my $80 WD20EURX WD AV-GP in hopes of it being a better drive.

    For those who haven't used jet.com yet they have the price of a WD30EURX currently at $88.15. You can use promo code Android15 to take $15 off bringing it to $$69.86!

    Jet.com also has WD20EURX AV-GP for $83. Wonder how much more it's worth to pay for AV-GP?

    I think You meant to say wd30ezrx is $88.14. I don't see WD30EURX at jet.com. thanks for the heads up though i was able to pick up WD20EURX WD AV-GP at jet for $65. I didn't really need the extra third terabyte of storage.

    My dilemma is how to move the WD20EURX from my Premiere to my new Roamio without losing the recordings...

    Maybe backup the essentials to PC first, then push them back after it reformats in the Roamio...

    Thanks for the Jet.com info. I just ordered a WD30EZRX for around $73 after the discount. But this isn't for my TiVo. It will go in one of my unRAID setups to get rid of another old, hot, WD20EADS drive.

    Yeah I actually went with the 2TB Drive myself but for anyone who needs that extra 1TB 7 bucks it cheap.

    That's the only way. You couldn't even put the drive in another Premiere and keep the recordings.

    Hi new member here, nooneuknow has stated that the hdd in tivo is always on spinning correct?? My hdd in my ota rom in standby mode is off after a few seconds and only spins up when I wake by pressing remote keys.

    If there are no recordings or transfers going on then the hard drive is spun down. At least this is how my three Roamios behave in standby. I use the two hour standby setting.

    I wish that TiVo releases the Bolt series real soon. I am itching to get two 3TB EURX HDDs for my two Roamio Basic boxes, but I am waiting to decide whether to keep them, or upgrade to the Bolt series boxes.
