    Default Esata expansion

    I have a WD Esata 320GB external drive. Will this integrate with a Tivo HD unit?

    It can be added, but not automatically. You can send the TiVo and the drive to us and we can marry the two together, but only the TiVo-authorized drive will marry to the TiVoHD's factory hard drive automatically.

    Default CHarter & Series 3 Cable cards

    Tivo 3 series 750GB. Charter provider. Have cable tuner installed. Charter took the 2 S cable cards out and replaced them with one M cable card, no 2nd card. N o I can only record what I am watching. TIVO says I need 2 cable cards, either 2 S or 2 M"s. Cable provider say's I only the M Cable card. Indicates I will need 2 cable tuners which will not work with my TIVO. I work fine with 2 S cable card will it work with 2 M cable cards?

    Yes - it'll work with 2 M cards. TiVo is right.

    The original Series3 supports M cards, but only at one stream each.

    The techs at Charter are thinking of newer boxes, which can get two streams from one M card.

    Will all S3 HD Tivos work with a single M cable card, or only newer units? Is there a way to tell before trying?
