My TiVo HD is ailing. After a series of 'momentaries' over the weekend, we had a two minute power drop and then a 7 hour power drop. Since then, my TiVo HD has been periodically freezing and rebooting (and eventually locking during the load screen). I've had it since 2007 and use it in the bedroom (the newer Premiere, that replaced the other TiVo HD last year lives in the living room). I should point out that there's nothing on the failing TiVo that I worry about losing. The way I see it, I can do one of the following: 1) Repair and replace the hard drive 2) Get a weakknees repair kit 3) Upgrade to a new unit Option 1 is something I did long ago for my series 2, to upgrade it's capacity. I remember it being a hell of a lot of work involving building a linux boot, hooking and unhooking hard drives and other stuff. It took a long time and was pretty frustrating, as I recall, though it did work eventually. Option 2 is still some work, but not as much. Option 3 is currently my favorite. I can upgrade to a TiVo premiere for $99 and get retain my multi-unit discount. No work at all and better features and sounds about the same or less cost than Option 2. Anything I've failed to consider? Has Option 1 become much easier?
