What's the deal with the software on the drive? On Bolt, with a compatible blank drive, once you boot with it, the software is (AFAIK) downloaded and installed onto the drive. I've done this w/the replacement 2.5" spinning drives I bought, partly to test them out and one I'm using.

Thanks! I wasn't clear it came from flash memory on the Bolt itself or if fetched it over the wire/wireless from TiVo's servers.

But, most definitely on Bolts, a blank drive is fine. I think I went thru trying out 4 drives: the 3 replacements that I bought and a 100 to 160 gig laptop drive I had lying around to troubleshoot when the stock 3 TB drive died.
