I have 2 Tivo series two boxes and I want to add more space for recording. How do I do that and where can I purchase extra memory?

See the "upgrade forum" here.

And google "hinsdale HOWTO". It used to be a stick near the top of that forum, but he's not an advertiser here so it was yanked.

I never liked them, prices anyway. But upgrade stuff is easy for me, it isn't for everyone.
They are a bit expensive for a preformatted HD, but their interactive instructions for formatting a HD yourself are pretty easy, IMO.

Yeah, probably they're good. But I had it down pat via Hinsdale's HOWTO before they even had the web thingy.

I got a bracket and fan combo from them. A bit pricey, but it was rock solid, and a piece of cake to install.

That was a niche product that it was nice someone provided. I wouldn't even call the brackets pricey--certainly cheaper than I could have milled one out myself.

But long ago (even when drives were small enough to perhaps warrant it), I decided to stick to one drive per TiVo. Since we have standalones and watch a lot of TV, we needed to resolve conflicts with multiple subscribed TiVos, so one drive per has always been plenty.
