Choose your TiVo model to purchase a TiVo Upgrade Kit

*Special Note for TiVo® DVR Upgraders: Hinsdale TiVo® Upgrade Kits are the preferred choice of thousands of TiVo upgraders because we offer high-performance pre-configured TiVo® Upgrade hard drives (better drives provide better TiVo® Upgrades) and our TiVo® Upgrade Kits are designed for the easiest installation possible (just drop into your TiVo® DVR - No PC required). You can order a do-it-yourself TiVo® Upgrade Kit for simple drop-in install (most common choice - see kits below) or you can ship your TiVo® DVR unit for complete upgrade, installation, and testing as part of the Full Upgrade services offerred. Select your desired upgrade option below and then purchase using Visa, American Express, MasterCard, Discover, PayPal, credit card, check or money order. Feel free to email (sales@newreleasesvideo.com) with specific questions or requests.

*Stock notes : All drives are in-stock for immediate shipment and are high-performance Maxtor DiamondMax, Western Digital AV, or Seagate DB35/Pipeline drives with acoustic management enabled quiet - run cool, very quiet (have fluid dynamic bearings), and offer performance benefits attributable to drives that are made for DVRs. All Upgrade Kits are currently processing and shipping Same Day (for orders placed before 3:30PM PST weekdays) as receipt of payment via confirmed UPS ~1-5Day. Full Upgrade and recovery services are shipping Next or Second business day following receipt of TiVo® DVR unit via insured UPS Ground (~1-5Day) or UPS Overnight (available in checkout). *Drive prices fluctuate so prices are subject to change - make sure to submit payment to lock in the price listed.

*Fan Replacement: All TiVo units contain fans. Reduced fan performance causes heat build up, which decreases the lifespan of any hard drive. Now available are TiVo replacement fans for most TiVo models. See our TiVo fan page for more information and ordering details. Order in the same shipment as your hard drive for significantly reduced shipping costs.
*TiVo Remote Controls: We now also offer replacement, original TiVo Remote Controls.
*Complete TiVo units upgraded: If you'd like to bypass the installation of a larger drive and get your TiVo from one source, see our Upgraded TiVo page.

Your Drive: Full Upgrade

 

 

 

You send us your drive and your TiVo DVR. We prepare the drive and install it in the TiVo and ship back. If there is an existing drive in your TiVo, you tell us whether to add this new drive, or replace the current drive (for units that can accomodate two drives - all others will get the default replacement). If you choose the "replacement" option, we attempt a data copy.

Simply process the order using this button, or send your unit along with a check or money order to the address below.

Your Drive: Full Upgrade at the Hinsdale Facility

 

 

 

TiVo Subscriptions are stored on the motherboard – not the hard drives – and are not affected by any TiVo Upgrade Kit or Full Upgrade. All upgrades and Upgrade Kits use new Maxtor, WD, or Seagate 7200RPM fully warranted drives (1 year manufacturer warranty), with acoustic management enabled quiet (these drives run cool and quiet and offer performance benefits due to higher spindle speed), and will be re-upgraded at no cost (you cover shipping) during the 1 year warranty period if you ever develop a problem with the new drive(s) - you will need to run diagnostics and get the free replacement drive from Maxtor, Western Digital, or Seagate before sending for re-upgrade.   Those sending their units or drives for Full Upgrade service can simply include payment check along with their shipped unit (checks are not held for clearance - completed units ship out immediately) or credit card payment can be submitted using above links. Any original drives not being used in new configuration are returned to customer with completed unit only upon request.

 

(Cords, cables, access cards, and remote are not required - TiVo® DVR unit only)
