    Hello,

    I am thinking of buying a Tivo Bolt Vox. I want to install a 3.5 inch hard drive instead of laptop because the laptop drives i am reading bad reviews.

    I heard some people have hacked their way to using a 3.5 by cutting the housing and using a external hard drive.


    Could someone point me to instructions of EXACTLY what needs to be done so i can make my decision.



    Thanks

    Bolt Hard Drive Upgrade Choice

    Starts at the bottom of page 8. Very good instructions and links to everything needed. Its a very simple process. I did it and its worked great - I have a 6TB in my external case. Make sure you leave the cable card cover off and get yourself a good fan to keep your temp down. . . I use AC Infinity S7
