TiVo Upgrade Kits at WeaKnees.com

My Sony-brand TiVo hard drive died this week. On Monday I ordered a replacement drive from WeaKnees. It arrived on Friday. Their Self-Install upgrade kit included a new hard drive, the appropriate torx screwdrivers, and complete, detailed upgrade installation instructions. In fact, they warned me in advance that I might get an error on startup-- which I did--and described exactly what to do. I was up and running in just a few minutes. Overnight, TiVo updated the software and the programming guide. Now I just have to set up my Season Passes of all my favorites shows. If you have a TiVo (and you should), check out WeaKnees.com.

PS. As much as I love Sony's designs, their hardware quality has much room for improvement. A dead hard drive in TiVo, a bad battery in my VAIO, a failed DVD player, all within a year of purchase.
