My advice would be to start reading and continue reading until you feel comfortable enough to start hacking your Tivo. There are lots of links to newbie guides and such in the newbies thread (check out all of the stickys for a starter) that should help get you on the right track. Hinsdale's How To and MFS Tools 2.0 will provide you with all of the tools and info you need to upgrade, replace, and add a new hard drive to any Tivo. Do a search for Hinsdale's and you'll find the links you need. Do not even think about hacking your Tivo without making and testing a valid backup image. Get another drive at least as big as the original and restore the Tivo image to it and then apply your hacks to the backup drive. You won't hurt the Tivo if you screw up the software as long as you have a backup to fall back on. If you mess something up you can simply restore the image to the drive and start over.

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!
