any reason you can't use a 7200rpm drive? from what I have gathered a 7200rpm drive should work.

If you have an HD-capable tv I'd strongly recommend putting that money toward a TivoHD instead - it's a considerably more capable device.

Newegg carries 2 samsung drives at 5400rpm. You can see those here.

Should note, there is a post on TiVo Community about the 1TB Samgsung Eco drive not being a good match with Series3 boxes, but I'm not sure whether of not that applies to Series2 as well.

p.s. You would also need to get an SATA to IDE adapter

i have a lifetime subscription with my series 2

i was thinking of just buying one of the drives right off of that weakness site ... but they are making a very pretty penny off of em. i think (i cant hit it here from work) it was like 110 bucks for an 80 gig and 130 for a 160.
