    Hello.

    Is there a special software that you are suppose to use to condition the hard drive for a TIVO if its larger than like 3TB?

    If so, can anyone let me know the name of the software or know if its Windows based software or if it required linux ?

    Thanks.

    There are 148 pages of post there. Which one talk about a 14TB hard drive besides the one I just made?

    I did a google search on how to upgrade TIVO BOLT to 14TB and the results that come up are my own post on here asking about how to do it.

    I did a search on this forum and all the post about 14TB hard drive show up as post that I created except one guy said that the BOLT has 14TB lockout or something like that.

    Does anyone know is the 14TB drives are blocked from working on the TIVO software?

    Thanks.

    10TB is the largest I've read about on this forum. DIY 10TB Roamio

    The idea was that the upgrade forum was the most appropriate place to post your question.

    OK.... Just wondering... why would anyone want to save about 1300 hours of video on a 14TB drive?

    Because they CAN!

    My wife would like to binge watch all "Big Bang Theory", "Criminal Minds" and "Law & Order SVU"
    episodes, but the real killer is all of the "Dr. Phil" and "Oprah" episodes.

    Personally, I don't understand why people keep shows "forever" but many do. We watch and delete

    Sounds more like "BINGE SAVING." Not a lot of watching TV going on if you need 1300 hours of DVR space. Or having a large hard drive is due to other short comings... ;) Sorry... couldn't help myself....

    Sorry for the "Dr. Phil" and "Oprah" episodes..... What! No Jerry Springer?

    No Jerry Springer, just an occasional Maury Povich. "You *are* the father..." Her favorite is when multiple men are tested and none of them are the father.
