There are currently two methods being used to upgrade/replace TiVo Bolt HDDs. One is replacing the internal 2.5" drive, the other is using a 3.5" drive by drilling a hole in the casing and using a sata extension cable and providing an external power source as well as a separate housing. TiVos are particular about what type of HDD is used. The parts section included the most popular choices for internal HDD replacement options. This Guide will cover replacing the internal 2.5" HDD with another 2.5" HDD. You can use a drive greater than 3tb however the TiVo box will not auto format it. This Guide will not cover how to format a HDD for use in a TiVo if it is over 3tb.
