Advertisements I'm tech -Savvy enough also. Had a hacked Dtivo for about 2 years and just recently switched to SA tivo's and would rather have a plug and play experience for a while. I am just am also basically lazy and don't want extra hoops to jump thru. The support end is real simple to handle also. Big letters in the manual if you don't use a supported drive you it may cause instabilities and no tech support provided. Same when you connect a non supported drive. If you don't have the supported drive you are on your own for the support. If they can tell if you don't have a supported drive to even use it now then they can tell if you have a supported drive for support calls. just give people the option without having to jump thru hoops.
