Extra HD in my old Tivo Hr10
Posted 06 December 2007 - 08:18 AM
I am a noobie but I am pretty good in following instructions if they broken down in simple steps. I put the extra HD on my old Tivo w/ a buddy.
what the best way to go about doing this?

You can add an eSata drive, but it takes the place of the internal drive and must be larger than 300GB (that's the size of the internal drive).
That old DirecTIVO drive is pretty much useless.

Can I replace the HR20 HD with this other HD that is bigger?

The hard drives in your Tivo won't work in the Directv HD DVR because the new DVR uses SATA drives and the TIvo uses PATA drives.
Not to mention it's 50GB's smaller, even if you could.
