    Yes, it does. I bought it back in 2008 and am the only owner of it. I'd say I got my money's worth! It's been very good to me during that entire time and why I haven't upgraded to a newer Tivo until recently.

    Does anyone know the maximum hard drive size that can used in a Series 3 Tivo using the WinMFS tool?

    2TB. Recommended is WD20EFRX, or 1TB, WD10EFRX.

    Just out of curiosity, what are the other tools available, if any, to do put in a larger drive than 2TB, OR is it a Tivo board limitation?

    I found this post and it seems that it saying using any version of Windows 7 or greater for hard drives "greater" than 3TB. Or, does that mean up to 3TB? o_O Capture.JPG

    When I wrote that, it was for any large drive 3TB and larger. Although the older models only can support up to 2TB or less.

    8TB, last I checked. Some dudes took a Roamio beyond that, but I think that's only Roamio/newer.
