    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.

    http://homepage.mac.com/WebObjects/...=FileSharing.html&aff=consumer&cty=US&lang=en

    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.
