    Does anyone know what the maximum hard drive size the HR10-250 will support?
    I have seen where members have used 1TB. Will the HR10 support 1.5TB?
    Thanks

    It might be able to use 1.2TB of that 1.5

    Some TiVos, I've read elsewhere on this and another site, can go a little higher than 1.0, but not higher enough to use all of a 1.5

    Perhaps yours will.

    Search the site for "1.5TB" and you might stumble across wherever it was that I saw it being discussed.

    I don't believe the HR10-250 can support a 1.5TB drive. In fact, I believe the only Tivos that can support 1.5TB or greater are the HD XL and corresponding later models. You can, however, install a bracket in the HR10-250 and install two drives for a total capacity greater than 1.5TB (i.e., dual 1TB drives). 9th Tee sells the brackets for about $15.

    Hi unitron & mr.unnatural
    Thank You for responding.
    Some time ago, I saw a post talking about using a 1.5TB drive, but was unable to find it.
    I don't want to add a second drive, so I guess I will just stay with the 1TB.
