    Does anyone know where I can locate a Tivo HD dissassembly guide.

    I need to figured out how to take out the harddrive.

    It is pretty much the same as the older Tivo units.

    Remove the screws on the back and lift off the cover. 4 screws will let you remove the tray that holds the drive itself and then 4 more hold the drive to that tray.. Only difference is a SATA cable instead of an IDE cable.

    Reverse to reassemble.

    Yeah, it is really simple...all you need is a torq screw driver (#10, I believe). I never read how to do it before I started and I doubt it took more than 5 minutes.
