More of the largest TiVos ever . . .

500 GB drive supplies are getting a bit more plentiful, so we’ve added some other configurations. Now, you can get the highest-capacity TiVo ever – 1300 hours in a Series 2 standalone unit. This is the first unit to solidly break the 1000 hour barrier – but don’t forget, that’s at the lowest quality recording level. At ‘Best’ you get about 360 hours.


We also have the R10 with 900 hours and the Humax DVD combo TiVo with 600 hours. And a few weeks ago we debuted the first ever terabyte TiVo as the HR10-250 HD TiVo with 130 HD Hours.

So we have three different terabyte models now, plus the DVD unit with 500 GB. All are running quite well (cool and quiet) with these new Seagate 500 GB drives. We’re starting to add kits to the site where appropriate – but if you don’t see what you want, as always, email us.

500 GB TiVo Upgrade Kits for HD TiVos are Shipping

We don’t exactly have a huge amount of stock of 500 GB drives, but we have enough that we’re able to ship orders for the 130 hour HR10-250s and a few kits. Each day we get another shipment of the 500s and we’re keeping up with demand. So we’ve added kits based on these for the HD TiVo. On our site, you can now order for the HD TiVo:

-add 500 GB kit

-dual 500 GB kit

They’re all on the HD TiVo Upgrade Kit page.

The Terabyte TiVo Has Arrived

Beginning today, WeaKnees is shipping the Terabyte TiVo – a TiVo DVR with dual 500 GB hard drives for a total of one terabyte of capacity. This unit can record 130 hours of HD content, 870 hours of SD content, or some of each. The units are here. For now, due to the number of drives we have, we only have these drives pre-built in the DirecTV HR10-250 TiVos, but we’ll have them in standalones, DVD burners, and R10s soon enough.

These units are in very short supply due to the scarcity of the 500 GB drives. We have a bunch that we’ll have in customers’ hands before Christmas. We’re not yet sure when the next batch will be in.

If you’re looking for a kit comprised of one or two 500 GB drives, email us with the specifics of what you want, and we can get you the price and expected availability.

A Night without TiVo

Weakneesers took a break from the holiday shopping season for some action at Furaibo. How could we miss MustSeeTV Thursday? Happily, our DVRs were chugging away at home recording The Cosby Show and Cheers.

We left the digitalia at the office except for the requisite dig cams, and Mel toted her iTunes phone, so there was some MP3-age (AAC-age?) to be had. The orts were tasty as demonstrated here by Max “Skewer” Power,
and throughout the evening by an underground Hanpen eating contest between Eric and Jason (ah, but which?). What’s Hanpen? It’s a little to early in the morning to describe this fried wonder, but just remember the rule: one is great, two are good, three are deadly.

WeaKnees mascot Doem Lyte was in attendance, taking a break from his hectic social schedule.

You couldn’t slip an oyster past these guys.

And what was he drinking?

No Karaoke to follow.
