I have a TivoHD with an Pipeline HD ST31000322CS 1TB drive that I installed in January 2010. It is now making a clicking noise. (It doesn't seem to be affecting the performance, however.) So, I'm guessing the drive is about to fail. Which leads me to the need to decide if I should buy a replacement drive (again) for $74 (from Amazon) or buy a new Premiere for $83 (from Amazon). 3 Cons for buying the Premiere: 1) Less storage space 2) Lose my current settings and recordings 3) Will cost me $5 more per month (or have to buy the $399 lifetime sub) Other than having the latest and greatest Tivo, I'm not sure why switching to the Premiere would be beneficial to me. I'm leaning toward buying a new 1TB drive for my TivoHD. I'd love to know others thoughts on this. Thanks!
