I have a Series 2 TIVO and the old drive seemed to die (unit is about 4 years old). So I got a new WD 160 GB and used Instant Cake on it. During that process I had the drive as a master on the secondary IDE channel in my PC. Cake process went fine. But since the old drive jumper was set on cable select that is how I set it when I put it back in my TIVO.
Now, a few seconds after powering up the TIVO it sounds like the drive depowers and then powers right back up. Everything seems to work fine after that. I am wondering, do you think I should put the drive jumper back as a master (jumper off the drive in this case)? The quick repower seems odd to me.
