    I have a HDVR2 that I have upgraded previously with a second 80GB hard drive. I have acquired a 250GB drive to replace that one. I am running software release 6.2 on the TiVo. Will the large drive work? Will it require any software changes?

    just make sure you are using a boot CD with LBA48 support and you will be fine. 6.2 has large drive support built in.

    Thanks. Do I need the boot CD if I am installing the new drive internal in the HDVR2 box.
