I would like to replace the internal drive on my THR22 with a larger one, while keeping the data. Back in the day this was possible with the HR10-250 and the SD Tivos; has anyone figured out what is necessary to do this with the THR22? Honestly, I don't care about the shows; what I care about is that my Tivo has garnered enough info about what I watch/record to make decent suggestions. I don't want to have to start this all over. I tried searching the forums, but didn't really find anything useful. Anyone have any info?

 

Thanx.

My question wasn't worded clearly enough, and I've editied to fix this.

 

What I want to do is replace the internal drive with a larger drive, while retaining the data from the original drive. Doing a sector-by-sector copy will result in a duplicate of the original; what I want to do is expand the partitions to use up the remaining space of the new drive.

I searched before I posted and couldn't find anything. All I found was someone pointing a THR22 user to the HR2x drive upgrade instructions, which of course don't work, and Steve saying he tried incomplete instructions he got from dealdatabase.com. Of course it was almost 7am and I hadn't slept yet. Or maybe my search-fu is simply too weak.   ;-)

And keep in mind, if it's leased, upgrading the internal drive is not allowed per the lease agreement.

Thanks for the warning. I'm pretty good at removing and replacing tamper evident stickers.   :evilgrin:
