Replacing the HD in a Tivo box

Is it possible to upgrade the HD in a 1TB Tivo (or replace with another 1TB)and can I upgrade it myself without getting an engineer out... Smiley Wink

Just curious to be honest The disc in there at the moment is making a clicking noise every now and then but EVERYTHING IS WORKING FINE SO NO NEED OF A REPLACEMENT AT THE MOMENT

Probably nothing I can do to be honest but no harm in asking...

Neither you or the Virgin Media engineer can replace or upgrade the hard disk in the TiVo.

Should your TiVo fail in the future, it will be replaced free of charge by Virgin Media.

Thought that might be the case... Thanks anyway - Only problem with that is being able to backup your wishlists and series links and stuff like that....

Re: Replacing the HD in a Tivo box

No problem, but if your box is making strange noises, best to watch anything you really want to see now (or laboriously back the programmes up to dvd in real time!!) before it dies, as programmes can't be recovered once the drive dies. Copying the series links etc. across works reasonably well, although the odd one seems to fail for no apparent reason, but it's better than nothing!
