    Do they have a lifetime or current Tivo service subscription? Did they connect to Tivo service within the last few months?

    Otherwise, its a waste of both of our times if the subscription lapsed or discontinued.

    I have lifetime on both. They both worked a year or so ago but won't boot up, tried to kickstart, I was going to put new drives in again. I had bought minis to hook to the Roamio and sidelined these but now I'm realizing I could use with the IR since I'm watching more oddball OTA stuff etc. Thanks!

    They sent.

    Recommend the WD Red WD10EFRX as the max.

    I need the exact same thing! Any chance either of you could pass it along?

    Thanks!

    I dusted off an old Samsung 250GB 7200RPM drive (hopefully the 7200 RPM won't be much of an issue in a TiVo) and got it loaded up. Because it was a SATA drive, I had to use an IDE to SATA adapter (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JVUXMRI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) which thankfully presented no issues. In fact I loaded up the image by connecting the drive via SATA to my computer, and then put the adapter on and placed it in the TiVo.

    One thing that had me stumped for some time was that no guide data existed for any Zip code I used. I had to pull the plug and reboot the TiVo several times until it finally went to an update download. Probably something to do with the Rovi guide data change I am assuming.

    Anyway, thanks for all the help!

    You would have issues soon and 7200 RPM drives are not recommended. Consumes more power and gives more heat and wear and tear.

    The mA ratings for both 5VDC and 12VDC on the 7200RPM drive were much less than the original 80GB 5400RPM drive. I'll take a gamble and see how long I can get this thing to last. The drive is an old drive I had sitting around, so I'm not out anything if it ultimately fails.
