my tivo went kaboom so i lost several of my recorded shows i hadn't seen yet. :cuss:


btw - don't use 2 hard drives in your tivo ... all it does is double your chance of complete failure. The drives are married(think raid) if 1 goes they both are worthless.


but anyway ... so i was downloading an old show


355 meg file was downloaded is 7 minutes :eek:


600+ kps


i don't think i've ever downloaded a file that big so quickly before

different kinds of Raid +1 is needed for the automatic backup/safety feature.

the other raid(s) are for improved performance
