CNET’s Brian Cooley just posted an Insider Secrets video all about upgrading your TiVo with a larger hard drive, using the Instant Cake CD from DVRupgrade. I’ve often recommended Instant Cake myself, and I’ve used it in the past for imaging hard drives for a TiVo. It really is a nice all-in-one solution for TiVo disc imaging and well worth the $20.
If you’re not up for doing it yourself, you can spend a bit more and buy a ready-to-run drive that you can just drop in. And if you’re using a TiVo Series3 or TiVo HD you can use an external eSATA drive, like the My DVR Expander, of course. Or you can always buy a pre-upgraded unit to start with.
Unfortunately CNET doesn’t let you embed the Insider Secrets videos, but fortunately TiVo Blog spotted the same video re-posted to YouTube.
