    I just put in a 1TB uprade in my year old Tivo HD model. the software on the drive i purchased is 11.0b.. but should be 11.0d. i can't go to video on demand... i've gotten error code 51. says it's a hardware problem.. tried clearing and deleting everything, but after it's rebooted, it still shows the 11.0b. i guess not everything gets deleted. have tried forcing updates 4 or 5 times and no luck. Any ideas?

    Contact the vendor you bought the drive from.

    I'll give you one idea. Go back and check your network settings.

    Patience. It may take a day or two to get updated with the current software version.

    This quote is from the TivoHD Overview sticky thread, which is well worth reading.

    TiVo's usually ship from the factory with older software versions, so the fact your new drive has an older version is no big deal.
