1) Pull the plug on your TiVo and wait 5 minutes or so for it to discharge.
Remove the four or five screws on the back of your TiVo, which hold the lid
in place. Remove the one screw that holds the power supply (located immediately above where the power cord attaches to the TiVo), using a T8 screwdriver. Slide the lid back and up/off the TiVo.
2) Remove the cable that connects the power supply to the motherboard.
This clips on, so push the clip and then pull straight out from the motherboard. Then remove the cable from the
hard drive in your TiVo and also from the motherboard.
3 ) Using a T10 screwdriver, remove the screws that are holding the power supply
to the case. There should be between 4-8 screws, depending on your power supply.
4 ) Simply push the power supply back a bit and then pull it out of the TiVo.
5) Reverse these steps to install the new power supply.
