Great TiVo Extender

Summary: We have had this drive for about 1 month and it has worked flawlessly. It was easy to set up (the Tivo did have to reboot 2 times to finally see it). I bought this so we would have room for all the programs we watch in HD. We now have much more HD TiVo recorded than we actually watch. I would recommend it to anyone who likes HD and has a TiVo.
Summary: The TiVo had a couple of issues connecting to this initially, but since then it's worked without a hitch. It provides SIGNIFICANTLY more storage and as a result, I haven't missed any of my favorite shows for quite a while.
Summary: Bought this to go with my HD TiVo. Followed the directions and it was really simple to set up (there is one trick, I think you have to power off the TiVo and boot the drive first, then boot the TiVo). I have not thought about it at all since then, but we have over 100 suggestions now and never have to worry about having a recording deleted accidentally. This really made the HD TiVo more useable; without it the HD programming filled the drive in about 10 days.
