  1. TiVo Premiere DVRs
    Hello, working on resetting a TIVO premiere. Existing hard drive is dead. Also, I'm not anywhere near a computer engineer so please treat me like I'm 70. I know how to do a bit more than basics like disconnecting the HDD, connecting, etc but right now I need a step by step guide for installing...
  2. TiVo Help Center
    I had a Bolt with an upgrade 2TB hard drive on it that just died. I don't believe it's a problem with the hard drive because I put the original hard drive in the Bolt and had the same problem with it getting stuck at the Starting Up screen. I am thinking of ordering a new Edge for Antenna but...
  3. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    So all bolt lights are flashing and I'm assuming the hard drive died. It's a 2017 bolt+. The suggested hard drive MQ03ABB200 is not available in the US and it'll take till late November to get it. Does anyone has an Amazon HD that would work just by replacing the hard drive? I've seen some...

  5. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    There is an input on the back of my Bolt for a hard rive, but on the tivo site they don't sell one. Is it possible to connect an external drive to increase my recording capacity? I used too have one on my last Tivo. Thanks!
  6. TiVo Series3 HDTV DVRs
    My series 3 seemed to be in the continual reboot mode. Finding that the most common problem was the hard drive, I replaced the hard drive (didn't format - maybe the issue), and that didn't seem to fix the problem although not all lights are flashing on the front now. I then changed the power...
  7. TiVo Edge
    I want to buy my third Tivo, the Tivo Edge Cable 2 TB but before using, want to install a bigger hard drive. I watched the Weaknees upgrade video. Which brand is best and what size? Are there any available hard drives that are 6 TB or bigger that can fit in the same Tivo hard drive tray...
  8. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Howdy folks. Just realized we've had our Roamio OTA for five years now! I recall way back in the day, a failed hard drive would brick the first get TiVos. Is this the case for the Roamio as well? If so, I want to get it cloned asap. At least for the moment, recordings are not that much of a...
  9. TiVo Upgrade Center
    I have a bolt with a 3TB drive that died. I also have a Edge 2TB drive I took out and replaced with a large drive. I'm wondering what will happen if I drop the factory 2TB old Edge drive into the Bolt in place of the dead 3TB drive. Will the bolt just format it up and run normally or will it...
  10. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I've noticed that everything my 18 mo old Tivo 3TB Bolt has recorded the last 2 days has constant pixelation & audio dropouts about every 2 seconds. Programs are unwatchable. But it doesn't do it on live TV. In fact, I went to a program in progress and watched it for a few minutes with no blips...
  11. TiVo Help Center
    Hi, My Tivo Bolt+ doesn't work and I get the Four flashing lights error, which I thought meant the drive was dead, but when I attach the drive to a Windows system, it is at least recognized by MFSR. Is there any possibility that the drive can be repaired/recovered, or does this still mean that...
  12. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I know that there is a thread titled "Bolt Hard Drive Upgrade" . Call this "The Sequel". I don't have the time to search through the 158 posts to find if there is information about how to save/backup recorded shows before upgrading. OK. I'm retired. I have time. In the interest of honesty...
  13. TiVo Premiere DVRs
    I am comfortable with the physical replacement of the drive, but I am Mac only. I don't have access to a PC to image-burn and format the drive. Weaknees is really pricey for the drives. Is there an alternative or someone on the forums who might do the formatting and prep? Thanks
  14. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    The hard drive in my Roamio is about 6 years old. Over the past months I have started to get some strange behavior from my Tivo such as lockups, reboots, etc. Can anyone tell me if a failing hard drive can lead to these types of problems? I thought that the hard drive only stored recorded...
  15. TiVo Coffee House - TiVo Discussion
    I believe that Tivo customer service is dead. I apologize for this rant but wanted to share my frustration and recent interaction with the company. By way of background, my claim still shows "in-progress" although it will be three weeks tomorrow. (btw I have two active premiers with all-in, a...
  16. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Hello, we had to replace our Roamio hard drive as the old one was dying. We went with the bigger hard drive. Prior to doing this we did download a whole bunch of stuff using KMTTG. I also have PyTiVo set up for downloads but I can't figure out how to put the shows back. Do either of these...
  17. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    I have two Roamios. Each upgraded to 8TB. Earlier this year, Tivo released a software upgrade which rendered both unusable. (Infinite reboots.) On one of them I erased the drive and it works fine. On the other I removed the drive in the hope of somehow later salvaging the recorded programs on...
  18. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    Hi, I'm having a Tivo Bolt issue after trying to use an external drive and I'm hoping someone can guide me. Here's what's going on... I repurposed a USB/eSata Thermaltake enclosure and put in a WD Purple 2TB drive WD20PURZ into it. I bought a SATA extension cable and it's plugged directly...
  19. TiVo Premiere DVRs
    Hello! I recently got a used Tivo Premiere 4 Series (TCD746320) with lifetime service for $25 that I bought to use for OTA. I haven't even really been able to use it yet. I just finished getting it set up and having the lifetime membership transferred and was trying to find a decent antenna to...
  20. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I just got this error message on my TiVo Bolt. "There is a serious problem with the information on the TiVo box's hard drive, and it can't be fixed. The hard drive must be reformatted. All recordings and most settings will be cleared." I'm hoping this isn't real so haven't begun the...
