Not sure if this would be more suited for the Tivo forums, but I will try it hear. Can you buy a new hard drive for this unit without haveing to go through Weeknees or PTupgrade? Unit just took a dump, I get power up and then DirectTV logo comes up and it stays on there and does not go away. Hard drive sounds like it could be fried, not sure and I am replacing the on board battery that is in the unit. Just wondering if anyone has tried to pull out one of the hardrives and try to do a repair on it. Thanks for any help or direction..
mjones73: Thanks for the info, well I got the drive working that is, not in the Tivo unit itself, I can now access it and read and right to in, but now I get gray screen saying "powering up" thats it... I need to get the software installed on it otherwise it is PTV for a new upgrade hard drive, which is no biggie, at least I got this one to work with my computers now as a external drive.
