According to the label, my DirecTiVo was manufactured in November, 2002. It was installed in August, 2003. Two months later, the drive was expanded to 160 GB, but because of a BIOS limitation, it was really 128GB. Three months later, it was expanded with another 160 GB hard drive. It started giving me tuner trouble two years ago, and I shut off one of the tuners. Last January, it was swapped out with DirecTV's DVR, which I believe has reduced functionality. I kept the DirecTiVo while I cleared out the movies. Today, I took the screwdriver, pulled the two hard drives, and sent it to a friend for electronics recycling on Saturday. Unfortunate, The Cranes Are Flying and Fires on the Plain remained unwatched. That leaves how many members with a semi-working DVR?
