TCD24004A Upgrade Question

Hey guys... I have a TCD24004A with the latest os, I believe 7.2. I already upgraded this bad boy once with 2 120gb drives and now I wanted to upgrade again. What is the largest size drives that the tivo will make full use of now?

Also, how do I go about upgrading again, since I already did it once? In addition, is there a way to do this WITHOUT losing all my programing? I would rather not have to copy all the shows over to another drive and then back again if I didn't have to.

The sky is theoretically the limit.
You are limited to 120GB for your A drive, as your partition table is full. To make full yse if a drive larger than 120GB, you need to lose the added partition and therefore all of your recordings.

Hrm.... so could I just upgrade the second drive without losing the info or do I have to wipe that one as well?

If I did copy all the programs over could I then install 2 300gb drives and then copy the programs back?

You can upgrade the second drive. You can MRV/T2G transfer your programs elsewhere and back to new larger drives.
