Advertisements I am considering ordering the Tivo HD external storage with backup from Weaknees. I need the storage space and I want to make sure that I don't lose everything if something goes wrong. Almost all my programs coming in on my cable have recently become copy protected, so I cannot move them to my pc or other tivos. Will I be able to store them on the external hard drive? And, if the HD Tivo does tear up and needs to be replaced, will that external hard drive be able to transfer the shows to the new tivo?
