Ok... i think i broke it.
Having read all about increasing hard drive space, cachecards, etc on this forum,i thought it cant be that difficult..... So bought a preconfigured 160gb hard drive off ebay,installed it and a cachecard,and now i have a green screen of death.SO... if anybody is local to warrington cheshire and can sort out my pile of self inflicted poo,I would be most grateful.
Cheers :rolleyes:

No the drive came without the cachecard driver,no other changes were made to the hard drive.Good news though,the chap i bought the HD off has offered to exchange it.Very kind.
Meanwhile,i put my old drive back in and that works fine.

Master jumper on the HD? I believe the TiVo needs to be told. It could even have been left on CS (Cable Select) which it won't like.

GSOD is due to drive corruption. Did the guy test this drive before sending it to you?

That's why some upgrade prices are higher....;)

I agree with Blindlemon. I've done some pretty dumb things to my Tivo drive and wasn't able cause a GSOD (while trying to get more swap). Even when my A drive was failing and the drive froze when writing the database I could reboot it and it would continue working. The only time I was able to get a GSOD was when I manually initiated it with mfsassert -please.

Perhaps you should ask for the money back, by a regular blank drive and an instantcake cd and still have money left over?

InstantCake doesn't work for UK machines.

There is a UK alternative, but forum rules prevent me from mentioning it! ;)

Sorry. I always forget I'm in the UK forum. Its the only place I can spend time with other S1 owners as everyone in the US has forgotten about them
