WeaKnees has cracked the TiVo Premiere code, and is now shipping upgraded units with larger drives. Whereas the base Premiere integrates a 320GB drive, WeaKnees offers DVRs with up to 2 terabytes of internal storage which should net you nearly 320 hours of HD recording capacity. But wait, there’s more. If you don’t mind an external drive (I do), WeaKnees can provide an additional 2TB of storage.
When the WeaKnees crew emailed the good news earlier this week, I asked for photos of their work space and some sort of discount we could provide to our readers. They delivered — the pics speak for themselves and code ZNF saves you 5% on any Premiere (upgraded or stock) through the end of the month.
Folks don’t generally purchase drives from WeaKnees or DVRUpgrade to save money, they do it for convenience. But the Premiere upgrade technique is currently exclusive to WeaKnees. Meanwhile, as the hacker community continues to dissect the new TiVo, Omikron has made an entertaining discovery:
For some reason the “Killer Joke” from Month Python is buried deep within the TiVo Premiere’s PROM code. It brought a smile to my face when I found it. Premiere may not do everything, but I don’t know of any other DVR out there can kills Nazis.
