New Disk Drive

I was watching some TV last night while Tia rested and it was stuttering and skipping a bit. At first I thought that it was a bad recording, maybe wind on the satellite dish, but then Tia woke up and told me that it had been happening all week.

So I headed to I bought some stuff from them years ago, and they seemed to be a great third party TiVo source. Their troubleshooter said the most likely cause was a failing hard drive. I agreed and thought about ordering one. They have a whole series of DirecTV HD replacement drive packages, so I skipped through them and decided on a 750GB drive for $200. It will double our capacity for recording, which is good, since I'm regularly clearing off stuff during football season.

So it should be here Tue or Wed, and hopefully our device will last until then.
