Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 2.09.14 PM

They’re out, and we’ve tested them! 8 TB drives are now in use at WeaKnees in a variety of DVRs and kits.

We have 8 TB Roamio Pros that can record up to 1280 hours of HD, all in one unit with no external drive. See those here:

We’ve expanded our top-end TiVo BOLT from a total of 8 TB to a new total of 10 TB! See our BOLT page for that.

We have new DIRECTV Genie Servers – the latest and greatest HR54 – with 8 TB of space, to record up to 1600 hours of DIRECTV HD hours.

And we have internal and external kits for Genies, and internal kits for Roamios.

Those TiVo BOLTs and DIRECTV HR54 Genies can both record in 4K, so you might end up needing all of this space sooner than you think!

New TiVo Feature: Bulk Transfer Recordings To your New TiVo!

We received word from TiVo that they have launched a new featured aimed at customer who are upgrading their TiVo. If you have a Series3, Series4 (Premiere), Series5 (Roamio) or Series6 (Bolt), you can now bulk transfer recordings from the old TiVo to the new. No more one-by-one transfers!

The transfer process is done online, so both boxes have to be on your TiVo account and be networked. To access the feature, log in here:
If your old TiVo is a Series3, you can only transfer TO a Series4, Series5 or Series6. Series4, Series5 and Series6 units can bulk transfer back and forth.
Kudos to TiVo for giving the people what they want!
