    I'm upgrading an old 802.11b USB wireless adapter to the TiVo-branded 802.11g adapter. I looked at the minimal instructions and it doesn't mention this - do I need to swap it out with the power off or can I just do it while the TiVo is running? Will it just figure everything out or will I need to reboot?

    Thanks

    Since it's USB, you can just swap it out with it still on...

    If you run into problems, which is rare, you can always power-cycle it then...

    I use the TiVo Wireless-G Adapter on two of my TiVo's and they have been very reliable for me.
