    I took a working hard drive from the XL and put it into a Roamio Plus. Now I would like to put it back into the XL but it won't boot up. Lights on front just flash. I guess my question is how do I make this drive work with the XL again? Thanks

    You'll need to reimage it with a Premiere XL image. Check out the Upgrade Center forum for assistance (and an image).

    It seems to me that with this method you need 2 drives. The original and a larger one. I just have the original that needs a fresh start again. Is this possible? Let me just say that I'm new here and new to Tivo, so please bare with me. Thanks

    Just recieved the image and was going to give this a go today. I was wondering do I need to format the hard drive first or is this a waisted step?
