    I'm thinking of upgrading my tivo hd from the 1tb hardrive (self upgraded) I have in it now to a 2tb hd sense the prices have dropped and for the second time I'll bake the 2tb with instant cake . So is the free download tivo backup program two way or one way only thanks for any constructive replys.

    I've never played around with TiVO drives, but can't you clone the old drive, bit for bit, to the new, and simply drop it in, programming and all?

    Regards,

    When I used Instant Cake on my TiVo years ago, there was an option to copy the programming from the old drive to the new drive. I'm assuming they kept that feature. The TiVo Community site is the best place to get this question answered.
