Cache really has nothing to do with the picture quality of tivo as well as drive spin speed. 5200 are better for tivo's

If you are saying 5200's are better because of heat I think you'll find that most 7200 drives these days are on par with the 5200's of yesterday.

I didn't know you could ever get 5200's..

There are 5 drive speeds that I'm aware of.. Not all are applicable to IDE drives..

4200, 5400, 7200, 10000, and 15000..

I'm sure 5400 is what you meant.
