There's a lot of redundancy in Hinsdale's How-To so just pick out the option that fits your situation and skip over the rest. Patience is a virtue when performing a Tivo upgrade so get yourself some. Impatience will only result in frustration so take your time and read, read, read!
Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!
