Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
I finally got around to upgrading my TiVo tonight. My 80 hour TiVo is now a 150ish hour TiVo. Dragging a PC over to the apartment with a monitor was more trouble that the actual upgrade.
I used the Automated TiVo Upgrade Instructions site to get the info and picked up the drive at CompUSA for $60 after rebates (not a recommended Maxtor Quickview drive but it was quite a bit cheaper than one of those from Weaknees or another retailer) . I also picked up a $10 Torx set at Radio Shack so I could get the TiVo open. I think it took around 3 hours to copy and prepare the new drive. The TiVo booted up just fine with the new drive and much, much quieter (although now I can hear the fan in the back of it).

I still need to either figure out why my wireless bridge keeps disconnecting or replace it with something that actually works.

Work was okay today. I didn't make it out quite fast enough and was given a high priority task that needed to be done as soon as possible so I ended up sticking around about two hours longer than I'd planned. Kind of messed up any plans to get moving stuff done in addition to the TiVo tonight.

I sent Rex a link to your LJ, as you two seem to have similar interests. Like making sweet love to your TiVos when your girlfriends aren't around.

Hell, it doesn't matter if I'm there or not.

I share the love with you!

There's seven hours of CSI love on the DVDTiVo! Plus many hours of Lost lovin' on the Series 1 TiVo at my old apartment.
