Removing TiVo’s Hard Drive or Drives

To access the internals of your TiVo, you’re going to have to pull out its hard drive.

After opening your TiVo [Hack #20], you should clearly see your TiVo’s one or two hard drives (depending on your model of TiVo). The challenge now is to know how to pull them out. Each one of the TiVo architectures (see Section 2.3.1 at the beginning of this chapter) is subtly different, so just to be sure you’re armed with enough information; we’ll carefully go through how to operate on each.

Warning

TiVo’s hard drives are usually pretty close to the power supply. As you attempt to remove the drives, be sure to avoid touching the possibly charged power supply.
