-- Phillips DSR704 Question (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=182591)

I just upgraded my DSR704 with a 120GB hard drive yesterday. I used the weaknees.com method. Use the link below to follow the step by step instructions. It is by far the easiest way i have found. I took about 1 hour to restore the the image to the hard drive, about a total time of about 1 hr 45mins for everything.

This method automatically expands the hard drive capacity for you. The software will give a number of hours expanded to after its done but your TiVo unit will give you another number. I found that the TiVo recognized hour capacity is equal to the size of your hard drive times 0.875. This number is for DirecTiVo's only. So in your case your hours should be 137Gb*0.875=~120 hours.

Gomer Pyle is right from what I've read. 160GB hard drives are seen as 137GB.

Good Luck
