Replaced failed 500GB MyDVR with this drive

WB, Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: After removing the failed 500GB drive in the WD MyDVR case, I installed this 1TB drive and reassembled the case. Then, following the instructions for the MyDVR, I connected it to my TiVo HD DVR, powered up the TiVo, and the TiVo recognized it and added the extra storage. It now works just fine.

Great for TiVo upgrade/expansion

bargain shopper, Amazon
25 May 2012
  • Summary: TiVo is out of stock on their 1TB AV expanders. After pressing TiVo support for supported models, I got the whole list - this drive was on it. I got a Rosewill external enclosure with a fan (and a fan on/off switch) from NewEgg for it. Assembly was quick and easy and TiVo hookup was a snap. The drive was automatically recognized and added to the system. My TiVo now has 2TB total space. Price wise it was a lot cheaper to go the DIY route.

Plug and play goodness for my surveillance system's DVR

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 November 2011
  • Summary: This SATA drive was plug and play for my surveillance system's DVR unit, which previously had a 500gb Seagate that crapped out earlier this year. So far so good, especially due to the fact that I doubled the memory capacity!

Works Perfectly in TiVo HD Series 3 (with easy firmware patch)

S. Kane, Amazon
18 April 2010
  • Summary: There seems to be lots of confusion concerning what does and does not work as a TiVo replacement drive. I've confirmed that this drive (WD10EVVS) works perfectly in a TiVo HD Series 3. The only catch is you must change a single setting on the drives firmware -- essentially, the auto sleep function of the drive needs to be turned off. This is easily done by downloading a small free bootable CD which contains wdidle3.exe (a Western Digital tool to alter the settings).

Tivo HD upgrades no longer work for most of the new drives

Brennok "brennok", Amazon
14 October 2009
  • Summary: In the past this was the recommended upgrade drive for users with a Series 3 Tivo including the Tivo HD. This is the same drive used in the current Tivo HD XL. The majority of drives with a manufacturing date of September 2009 are no longer working when put in a Tivo. I bought two drives in August that worked fine but the third one I bought in September will not work.
