  1. TiVo Upgrade Center
    Well, I'm stumped. I upgraded my Series 2 TiVo Toshiba RS-TX20 to a 1 TB drive and the only way I get it to boot up is by disconnecting the power from the DVD ROM drive. Upgraded drive: Western Digital Purple 1TB WD10PURZ. IDE to SATA card: HDE 2 Pack IDE/EIDE/PATA Computer to SATA Hard Drive...
  2. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I am going to upgrade from my TiVo Series 4 to a TiVo Bolt Vox (the Edge doesn't seem worth the price). I would like to install a bigger hard drive. All the tutorials I've seen say that there is a 3TB limit on new hard drives, but these are all 2-3 years old. Is there still a 3 TB limit on...
  3. TiVo Upgrade Center
    So nothing has been recording after the upgrade with OnePass. I checked History and found that the recordings are being deleted automatically because it says "space needed." I have nothing on the drive, it's new! Check the system info and says Free Disk Space is 474 HD or 3275 SD hours. So...
  4. TiVo Upgrade Center
    I have a few questions about my TiVo Series 2. I used MFS tools a few years ago to replace my 80GB OEM drive that came with the TiVo with a nice 160GB drive I pulled out of an old PC. It ran for 5 years and I was quite happy with it till it died recently. I do have a spare 250GB IDE drive but I...

I did it with my MacBook Pro, using USB 3.0 to SATA adapters. Everything seemed to go fine. I put the...
  6. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    Just got my Bolt 500GB. I'm going to upgrade it right away, but I wondered if anyone has suggestions for how to test to make sure it works properly before I void the warranty and upgrade it? Thanks in advance!
  7. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Hi All, Tivo diagnosed my 2 month old roamio refurb as being stuck in a startup loop. The good news is that they will replace it for free. Woot! Now for the questions . . . 1) The support rep said that the startup loop is alway caused by a bad HDD. Is this true? I ask because I upgraded my...
  8. TiVo Upgrade Center
    Hello, I have a Roamio OTA that currently has many records I do not want to lose. I also do not own a Windows machine, only OS X and Linux. Is there a recommended method to migrate my existing image or recordings before upgrading the hard drive? I know there are drive backup instructions for...
