    HDVR2 is second generation DTivo. 25Xtreme is for series 1 DTivo only.

    Doh!! I didn't see the part about your DTivo being a series 2 unit. Sorry 'bout that. No wonder it doesn't boot. I hope you made a backup image of the HDVR2 original drive (or at least have the original drive to reinstall). You should be able to copy the drive to the new larger drive and install it in the new DTivo. You're pretty much limited to what you can hack on a series 2 DTivo, however. Get yourself a copy of MFS Tools 2.0 and Hinsdale's latest How To for info on backing up your drive and installing larger drives. It should still apply to series 2 DTivos for drive upgrades. You can find the info at the 9th Tee website or look for the links in the How Tos Only thread in the DTivo Hacking Forum.

    Thanks for the quick reply I did not alter the 40gig that came with the unit. I purchased a seperate hd to play with for hacking

    Series II hacking Thread

    Have a look at this thread in Series 2 hacking on this forum.
    Also, check MrBlack51's reference to a thread at AVS.

    http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/sh...threadid=21103

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...threadid=90268

    As was already stated, the options around Series 2 are limited. In particular, there is no way currently available to use an HU card with the Series 2 unit. The boot299.btl hack doesn't work.

    There are some interesting hardware hacks coming for HDVR2 using prom switches. Check the AVS community threads on series 2.

    Good luck,
    Nitrous
