I want to add a bigger hard drive for my Tivo unit... Anyone know of decent deals? Everything I've seen deal-wise involves 7200rpm drives and I need the cooler/quieter 5400rpm drives..

Hey, FYI: I have dual WD 120 gig 7200 rpm drives in my Sony Series 1 TIVO and it's not too hot, or too loud. My unit is in our bedroom too, so I can assure you, the TIVOs are very well insulated, I only hear the drives if it's late at night nothing on and I reboot the tivo. Under normal playback, and recording, it's quiet.

i have a 120 meg 7200 in my directtivo 2 and its not any louder or hotter than the original,...of course the orignal was loud enough

Wouldn't it make sense that at the very least, they'd be cooler than the 7200rpm drives?
