I like the sound of that! My UK TiVo hard drives are failing and I have an
airnet (Wi-Fi) card in the TiVo so something like slimserver would give me the
incentive to put in larger discs than normal.


Unfortunately for the UK, TiVo pulled out the UK market but there are still
loads out there running 2.5.5 software.
