    HDVR2 hard drive upgrade question


    I've done a bunch of upgrades for friends but every time I've done an upgrade so far, I had them come over to my place with their tivo units in hand and new hard drive.

    I have one friend with a HDVR2 but he is out of state. So I would like to get an image of a HDVR2 and put it onto a hard drive an send it to him for him to replace on his own (similar to what you get from weaknees as an upgrade kit).

    Is this possible? Or do I need to have him send me his hard drive first so that I can grab the image off of it and the write his image onto the larger drive? What does weaknees do to set up their hard drives?

    I have no interest in competing with weaknees...just interested in how they do it.

    You don't need his original image. You can use any valid image on the drive. Once he puts it in his machine, he will get a "Serious hardware error #51" Let him do a "Clear and Delete Everything" and it will fix the error and he will be good to go.
