    Killer deals for those with TiVo.

    Sale Page

    Example: Upgrade kit - 400gig HD with 350-500hrs record time (depending on model) just $179! Save $60.

    The upgrade kits are simple to install.

    Sale ends July 13th.

    The upgrade kits are nice in a way, but grossly expensive. $179 for a 400GB HDD and an image burned on it. But if you have no/limited computer skills it's a good deal.

    But you can hop over to Newegg and pick up a 400GB HDD for about $90 and spend an hour and get the same thing, or for $200 you can pick up a 750GB HDD and have the ability to record enough TV to turn your brain into mush ;)

    If you add a second HD, do you have to burn any image on it, or does it act like a slave drive in a computer?

    I don't recall, I never did it. I don't think you can just plop it into the machine and go, you need to do something to the 2nd drive (likely setup the partitions).

    Thanks, I'll pop over to AVS sometime and see if it's been talked about over there.
