    They sell lots of things that are not listed. Email them and ask.

    edit:
    Oh yeah: if they can't help you, I can probably dig up a set of screws for you. Send me a message.

    I had to use Tork 10 and 15 when I added the hard drive. 10 for the cover and 15 to remove the drive mounting bracket.

    The type of driver used does not help him replace the screws...

    However, regular drive screws used to hold a drive in a PC will work to hold a drive in the TiVo.

    go to a hardware store and buy an assorted set of sheet metal screws. You'll find some that work.
