I am surprised that it has continued for so long. When one of the two 
300GB hard drives in our Philips HDR112 Series 1 TiVo crashed and lost 
over a years worth or recording, I was compelled by my wife to switch to 
MythTV so that I could RAID the recording drives.

I liked the simple UI and hackability of the TiVo. I added a TiVoNET 
card, a second drive, larger drives, and an updated kernel to support 
greater than 137GB drives. However, my family and I have grown to love 
the flexibility of MythTV.

We are packing to move at the moment and I found the original drive from 
the Philips HDR112. I guess I forgot to give it to the person to whom I 
gave the TiVo.
