    My Roamio OTA dropped its HDMI output. Its mounted in a cabinet and apparently overheated. If i let it cool seems to run ok
    Is it possible to get another OTA and just move the HD. Or should I just jump to an edge or maybe a bolt

    If you move the hard drive from one Tivo to another (even the same model), it will not work properly. The shows already on it will not play (encoded to the original Tivo that recorded it), will not record anything. The fix would be to run Clear & Delete Everything, which will delete everything from shows to passes.

    This happens alot. The fix to keep your tivo shows is either transfer them off, or to buy a composite adapter for your tivo and use that as the output until you can get your shows transferred (or permanently). I have one roamio that has been on composite since 2018.
