    OK, I'm willing to try anything, so I thought I'd first try moving the drives over. If I do this and the drives AREN'T encrypted will they "come up" OK? If I do have the encryption on (yuck!) will...

    Yes, it is a Series 2 direct TV TiVo

    Both the "donor" and the "recipient" are of the same model (Phillips). As I remember when I made up the drives, and got the TiVoweb plus working, I turned off the encryption on the drives (a patch...

    Moving disk to another unit.

    Recently I had a main board go dead on my TiVo. I confirmed that it wasn't the power supply or the drives by powering them independently (when I plugged in the main board, the power supply shit...

    I was trying to do what I considered a "simple" (oh, can I be so foolish) upgrade. I have a nice working 120 GB (100 hour) TiVo in the form of a Phillips DSR7000. It was working perflecly before I...
