I have a series 2 dual tuner tivo (model #tcd649080) with a western digital 80 gig hard drive. I was adding a maxtor 300 gig drive with a weaknees install kit. but when I start the tivo it gets stuck at the powering up screen. any Ideas?
Both DVRupgrade and Weaknees have devices available that will delay the spinup of the second drive until after the primary drive is up to speed. This puts a smaller load on the power supply and should allow both drives to get up to speed. After the power up cycle the load is a lot less to keep them running. Good luck

Please check all your flat cables including from the power supply to the motherboard and from the motherboard to the Front panel. make sure all are firmly in ( this was covered in a prior weaknees post)
