Advertisements Sometimes the squeaky complainer does get satisfaction. So TokeoShoe has the freedom to keep the heat (questions) on Tivo. Unless there is a good physical handicap that truly prevents other drives from working why "discriminate" and allow some to hook up and other to a forced propriety and size-limited solution? As an example, Creative sold devices with the ability to record FM radio. Suddenly, in a firmware "update" they removed that feature, complaining riaa had mandated it. Lots of hue and cry over removing a feature. Creative would not budge. More hue and cry and they finally added it back. Not quite the same but with enough folks questioning the logic, it moved them to "reason." What is the logic. S3 users can call for support and REP says what drive? Oh, not supported. Still getting those calls. All tivo is doing is limiting choices and making some folks angry. As indicated just above, what will tivo do when a supported drive fails - still a separate warratny issue anyway. Nothing else.
