Expanded TiVo HD drives starting to ship

Following up my post from the other day, expanded storage for the TiVo HD is becoming available. WeaKnees.com is now shipping drive kits and expects to begin shipping pre-expanded units soon. It isn’t clear if they’re using Spike2k5′s WinMFS tools, or if they’ve updated MFSTools themselves (or had someone do it for them), or something else entirely.

I checked with DVRupgrade.com and they say they plan to ship upgraded units soon, with their expansion kits to follow later. So they’re doing it the other way around. They are planning to use Spike2K5′s WinMFS tool for their expansion.

I’ve sent a query to Spike2k5 to see if he can shed some light on what tool WeaKnees is using. I’ll update this post if and when I hear back. Spike says WeaKnees is definitely not using his tool, so it looks like they’ve done their own development.
