I recently had to replace the hard drive in my TiVo Bolt which turned out to be an easy process but I initially chose the wrong drive. Here’s the right set of options for replacing the hard drive in a TiVo Bolt DVR.
With Chromecast installed on Android and the latest TiVo 20.3.8 update a new option comes up when choosing which device to screen cast to, TiVo. Taking this option for a spin gives mixed results.
Both of my TiVo Premiere units updated to the latest fall update but the one connected via WiFi was having network problems.
It would pass network diagnostics and would connect to the TiVo servers but would not get account information from TiVo or go beyond that point. A reboot of the TiVo, the wireless N adapter and router did nothing to fix it. There were a number of error codes that the TiVo generated but they all seemed dubious. The bar at the top of the TiVo Central menu that normally shows ads and other thing they think you might like was blank or said that TiVo services were unavailable at this time.
The answer was to reset the wireless adapter and reconnect it to the WiFi network. Here is how to do that.
The default fan that comes in the TiVo DVR is either noisy from the start or gradually gets louder over time. In an entertainment center in the living room you might not even notice this, but if you have it in a bedroom it becomes very noticeable.
I’ve gone through several different fans over the years and have settled on the Fractal Design Silent Series 50mm fan.
