One word of warning! Watch out for the edge of the front bezel where the cover slides into the front, right in front of the hard drive. It us very sharp!! I attempted to remove the power connector from the hard drive without removing the drive from the case first, well my hand slipped and oooouuuuccchh!!!!! I sliced my thumb to the bone right through the vein. It took 3 stitches to close! So much for saving money on an upgrade!

Good news though when I looked at the Tivo unit the next week it had dried blood all over the MB! I took some alcohol and cleaned it all off. I thought the it was toast for sure. I hooked it back up , with the original drive, and everything worked! I then proceeded to complete the upgrade and everything went fine. The box works perfectly. I guess my blood must be non conductive!

Anyway the moral is don't worry too much about static discharge. Just use common sense and you should be fine.
