BTW, I set up 2 of my in-laws' external HDD on their Tivos using a regular SATA cable. The difference vs the eSATA cable is mostly shielding and a more rugged connector. If it's not moving much, you might get by on a MUCH cheaper, standard SATA cable that you can get from any computer h/w store or electronics store, like Fry's.

Thanks. The RS didn't have anything. Looks like I have to order one. The shipping will cost more than the cable. One of the joys of living in Alaska.
