TiVo external SATA bypass

TiVo left the external SATA port on the series three disabled. [Lightrunner] bypassed this silly restriction by adding a sata to esata cable (AFAIK the only difference is the shape of the connector and shielding on the cable.) and a nice big SATA RAID array. Silly TiVo, massive recording storage is for everyone.

    That’s awesome.

    I wish someone could find a way to enable the SATA on the Comcast DVR boxes now.
