I just ordered a rb 500gb vox I want to upgrade the hard drive. Is the WD red still the one to buy?
You do realize that the Bolt VOX uses 2.5" hard drives, I hope. There are several folks who have connected 3.5" drives via external encloses or by modifying the case of the bolt. Might want to do some more homework before you buy something.
Will it work like my Romeo where I just drop in a new hard drive?
Also. Which Hf do u recommend for the bolt. 3tb
All of the WD Reds are 3.5". An often recommended 3TB 2.5" is the Toshiba, Toshiba MQ03ABB300 3.0TB 2.5-inch 15.0mm SATA... at MacSales.com
However, Tivo recently stopped working with some Bolt hard drive upgrades....I believe it was for folks running hydra, but you will have to do some homework before proceeding.
It was on boxes using Hydra (TE4), and anecdotal evidence suggests a connection to the latest Hydra update 2 weeks ago. No one has posted there an issue with a hard drive upgrade using the Toshiba drive. But note, again, that everything on this issue is anecdotal at this point.
ok i got my bolt 500gb and replaced the hd with a wd 2 tb .Tivo won't complete setup.I put the 500gb back in and it completes the setup. How do I get my wd 2tb to work? Tivo came with 500gb wd drive and hydra
With the 500gb hdd, revert the the UI to TE3. Then put the 2tb in and start it up.
How go I revert TiVo bolt to TE3 UI ?
How to Rollback Hydra from Roamio and Mini's v1
i have a bolt. is this the same process?
I've read here, yes.
I find it amazing that the creator of that thread has not been back since the day he/she started it.
I guess he/she reverted back to IE3 and has been happy ever since!
Which WD 2TB? I believe that the SMR one, which is less desirable and not recommended is the one that Mira won’t work with.
I have a WD 2tb HDD rhat I wanr ro install in my bolt. When I installed it, I couldn't get past the set up screen. Tonight I will put the 500gb HDD back in and downgrade the UI to te3 . Then I will try the WD 2rb HDD. I will post my progress tomorrow.thanks for all your help.
I followed instructions to go from hydra to te3 but nothing happens..any ideas?
Grasping, but how about wiping the 2tb hdd. Write zeros to it.
Which WD 2TB as Anotherpyr asked above?
Took a couple of tries to get my Bolt Vox to revert to TE3. The button presses have to be in relative quick succession. Not super fast but without pauses between presses.
