ReplayTV Replacement Drive

by on Apr.02, 2009, under Uncategorized

The replacement drive I found on ebay for my ReplayTV arrived.  Its a 400GB Seagate 7200.8 which theoretically should work.  I copied an image of the 500MB system partition to it from a backup, and … IT BOOTS!

Its hooked up now getting a 250GB infusion of recorded shows from my earlier drive that started occasionally having clicking fits.  These are PATA IDE drives and rather than mucking around in a case to hook them up, I just use a IDE to USB adapter.  Transfers aren’t as fast as they could be, but it’ll do.  About 6 hours from now I ought to know if everything transferred OK and can quit watching TV on the networks’ schedules.

Update:  6 hours later and the new drive is installed and working fine, giving me nearly 150 hours of high quality mode capacity.
