I was reading an article on these forums where a person had hard drive problems with their TiVo Premiere. They saved quite a bit of money on replacing the hard drive by buying a TiVo Premiere at Amazon for roughly $75 and using it for spare parts. I looked and apparently that deal is still good at Amazon as of today. The thread I am referring to is entitled "Tell me about Kickstart 57" and was posted by Aero 1 on November 21st, 2011. I don't have enough posts to give the url. According to the TiVo website, the hard drive on a standard TiVo premiere is 320 gigabytes. So, my question is this: Is it possible for me to purchase this TiVo Premiere from Amazon, remove the hard drive from it, and install said 320 gigabyte hard drive in my series 2 dual tuner TiVo? Is the hardware compatible? If it is possible, would it be "plug and play" or would I have to configure the premiere hard drive just like I would have to do if I bought a blank hard drive? Obviously what I hope to hear is that I can do this instead of paying Weaknees $179 for a hard drive of similar size already configured for my TiVo. Although I possess a small degree of technical skill with computers, it is not enough for me to feel confident in going 100% the do-it-yourself route. I am afraid that if I try, I may mess things up or find out that I would have to substantially alter the hardware/software on my PC in order to be able to configure the hard drive.
