Does anyone know if there are any applications out there for blessing a tivo drive for OSX?

Can it be done using Virtual PC?

You see my dilema...I want to add another drive to my tivo but I dont own a PC. There must be a way to do it on a Mac.......anyone?

I think there are mac programs. but that is not what I am going to suggest.

is an excellent tidbits article about upgrading the tivo while owning a mac.

I like the companies that will send you everything you need to upgrade a tivo, including a preblessed Harddrive, mounting brackets and tools for a reasonable price.
This is from www.weaknees.com/tb/

Check out the article above, though. It really has everything you want to know in it.

Thanks. That is exactly what I was looking for. One of the links took me to someones idisk where it looks like there is an osx vertion of bless tivo.

I will check it out when I get home.

If that doesn't work out I will look into an upgrade kit but I can't see paying $250.00 for a 120gb hard drive when I can buy one for $130.00.

Thanks Again.
