However, a drive which has been used in both a TiVo and a Windows machine may have both the Apple Partition Map and a DOS/IBM-style partition table, which means that both fdisk and pdisk on the MFS Live cd will return a result, although that doesn't mean the partitions themselves still exist.
Did you bother to see if the TiVo would boot up?
Check to see if you got lucky and got one with Product Lifetime Service?
Too busy TiVo wrangling to watch television anymore.
