View Full Version : UTV Hard Drive Upgrade

02-11-2003, 11:47 AM
I have been scouring the net for weeks now, trying to find the answer to this question:

Is there ANY way to upgrade the default 40GB UTV hard drive to a larger one (WD 120GB, eg.) WITHOUT having the unit dial via the phone modem? I fear the answer may be "no", but I'm hoping that perhaps there is, either through a manual install of the software, or via the sat.

Nope... sorry.

There seems to be minimal validation when downloading over the phone line. The card does not have to be in, and I do not think the unit needs to be activated.

is there a way to update the hard drive via computer. my modem is dead... the unit is a doorstop .. it work perfectly just can't update or get the required software...

what if you recorded the download on the phone line then hooked up the uvt to a telephone line simulator, after the utv dials out, hook it to the download recording,then when 3.7 hits just reset and download the old update again?
