Wow now that was a huge surprise and a biiig relief! I got my new hard drive today. I was afraid that I couldn't get it to work (Tivo works with Linux so you can mess it up easily!) but it was no problem at all with WinMFS (9.3 Beta) and my external USB box! My PC doesn't have an IDE slot but my old USB box does so I tried it and it worked like a charm! All I needed was a Torx (Tork) 10 and 15 screwdriver and in about 10 minutes it was all done!
