    I see several vendors are selling upgrades, and I would like to upgrade my new tcd652160 (Tivo HD) myself (to save $135 or so - i.e. a raw Seagate DB35 750gb is about $265 at several internet stores or I could go to a Tivo upgrade vendor and get one with the image installed for $399).

    I have searched this forum for "tcd652160" and get zero hits. Is there any way to get an image for the tcd652160?

    I am kind of a novice to this forum, so sorry if I missed it and thanks in advance for any possible help.

    Yes, you can upgrade it yourself.

    Assuming your TiVoHD is working, you can take an image from that drive, or do a drive to drive copy, storing the original drive.

    So just to be clear, I can image the stock drive, which I think is 250GB, and just put that image onto a 750GB drive? Its that easy? Is there some sort of general guide ont he Internet or here on this forum walking through the steps? Thanks.

    You'll need WinMFS for use with a TivoHD. You'll probably have to register there and request a beta copy.
