And I believe you are recommending running MFSR.
Does anyone know what drive Weaknees is using when he upgrades the Bolt to 2TB?

Broke 2 clips and one screw hole. Doesn't make any difference in usability or appearance.
I broke a clip trying to get the cover on once. But never when taking it off.
I'm sorry if this question has been answered already but I'm having trouble. I bought the seagate 3tb drive bc my TiVo kept rebooting and I couldn't do anything. Literally rapid fire. Once I physically install the new drive, is there any software loading or something I also have to do or so I just connect the wires and turn the power on?
Assuming you have a Bolt, for hard drives 3TB and smaller there is nothing to do but plug the new drive in and boot up your Bolt. If your Bolt keeps rebooting likely there is something wrong with the drive, especially if your Bolt works correctly when you re-install the original drive.
I replaced my hd because my TiVo kept rebooting itself. I mean non-stop back to back. I put in a new hard drive and I'm having a similar issue. The problem is TiVo won't replace it because I opened it now. Anyone else have similar issue who may have advice? Could the cable wire, Ethernet wire or hdmi cause an issue?
Unlikely but you can check this by just unpluging everything and firing the unit up.
Does it keep rebooting?
If so, its the unit.
I purposely broke one of the clips on the top small cover. Actually, I just clipped it down a bit when I put in the 3TB drive. that clip seemed to be right ontop of the SATA cable and put pressure on it - making it very hard to close the small top cover. I figured the constant pressure on the SATA cable probably wasn't in the best interest of the running of the drive.
So i took your advice and began unplugging everything one by one. I also remembered the cable card screen kept popping up so i took cable card out. Once i took card out, all was well. I could watch netflix and everything with no problem. I run to comcast and swap card and once it is paired, i mean literally a second after the cable signal came in, it kept resetting. once i take cable card out, it works fine but no tv. It is odd i had the card in and unpaired with no problem. once it is paired is when the problem begins. any thoughts? I am getting desperate at this point...
Saw an old thread about th power supply causing a reboot cycle with exact same issues i ws having on tivo 3's. Swapped power chord and I am having no problems!
So what is the current 2TB recommended drive for a Bolt? Thanks.
I just installed a ST2000LM007. No issues so far
Amazon says the ST2000LM015 is the replacement for that drive. Anyone know the difference(s) between the drives?
From what I understand that drives uses a newer technology that has not been tested yet for DVR usage. Someone was going to test one but never heard back
What would be some symptoms of the Tivo not liking the drive i put in? I am not sure if it was because of remote issues.. But I am getting random blue spinning circles and a lag on button presses
Well the circle hasn't returned Recording good so far
So I am not sure if this drive is an issue still.... It records fine.. no issues there fast forwards fine.. I did some transfers between the Bolts last night and they topped out at 160mbps.. Which seemed low.. I just tried to do some transfers between each bolt and my desktop and the stock bolt was running around 250mbps and this bolt around 160... so i am not sure if it is the drive or what Nothing was recording on either drive at the moment
That is slow. Transferring between two BOlts, with no tuners buffering and no recordings taking place, will reach 500Mb/s average transfer rates. Even with four recordings taking place it should easily be over half that speed. If not around 350Mb/s.
would probably help if i wasn't a moron.. So the Moca transfer speed was 170 with both boxes buffering tuners.. switched the other to ethernet and it jumped to 375 buffering as well
