    I went the same route. Ordered from Amazon and shipped by Buy.com. Plugged it in and was up and running in no time. I'm also amazed at how quiet the the external drive is.

    Yeah, it is very quiet. So quiet that I didn't even notice that the first restart didn't "marry" the external with the TiVo. Unplugging and replugging everything did the trick the second time around. It's so much quieter than the old DirecTV TiVo's (especially our non-HD one).

    As of at least 9am EST this morning, the drive is discounted to $135 at both Amazon (proper) and Newegg. I'll probably buy from Amazon as the 1m SIIG cable is a few dollars cheaper there than Newegg.

    Finally. Hopefully it passes the WAF once it actually gets to the house. I'll just need to make sure our SPM is not filled with just shows like Terminator and Lost. We'll have to have Grey's Anatomy and Lipstick Jungle in there too.

    Why (possibly) waste money on the SIIG cable? First try it with the included cable. Mine has worked fine with the included cable for many months.

    This thread has a number of references to Buy.com. I would strongly suggest checking a site called resellerratings.com prior to ordering from any internet site. Using a data base of users comments, they rate internet sales sites. It has been my experience that their ratings have substance and credibility so I strongly suggest using them to check out internet sales sites prior to placing an order.

    So did mine until it stopped working. Ordered the SIIG cable and problem solved. For the extra 5 bucks (or whatever it was) just install it ahead of time and fuggedaboudit.

    I ended up replacing my DVR-Expanders (and SIIG cables) with upgraded internal drives to avoid the issues 9.4 has with the external units. One unit sold and the other is still available..hopefully the sales will somewhat offset the cost to upgrade my THD.

    Mine's for sale. Just bought for $151.54 at Best Buy 5 weeks ago, and used it for two weeks. Then I unmarried it and got a 1TB Weaknees upgrade, so now I don't need it anymore. I forgot to return it within the 30 days, so someone make me an offer payable via PayPal. Original box, accessories, manual, and receipt included. You can checkout my eBay feedback under the same user name, and you can email me at dcpmark at gmail dot com.

    You can also get at Costco online for $139.99 with free shipping. That's worth the extra few bucks to me b/c of Costco's return policy. I've seen it come and go on their web-site, though, due to availability. Ordered mine a few days ago and it still hasn't shipped.

    ...and mine hasn't shipped b/c it's back ordered. That explains why you couldn't find it.

    It is back again today. It keeps coming and going. Beware, though: I ordered mine 3 weeks ago and I still don't have it!! It was backordered for weeks, then I finally got the shipping notice on Saturday AM. Still hasn't arrived, though...
