    I've got a DirecTV TiVo (couple of years old) that I don't use anymore after switching over to cable. It wasn't leased, so I don't have to return it, but I hate for it to go completely to waste.

    Can I pull out the hard drive and use it in a PC or game system like the XBox 1 or PS2? If so, would I just hook it up like a normal hard drive, format it, and go from there?

    I was thinking this would make a good media drive for pictures, music, videos, etc.

    Thanks for any help!

    To be honest mate, isit just a regular pc harddrive thats in the box? . Ive not had one of these boxes but if its just a normal hard drive then i presume it would be ok to use it as a pc hard drive. Give it a bash?
