Have searched for this but nothing found.  I wish to turn the TiVo on its edge. I imagine the disk drive would be the only thing affected.  Does anyone have definite yes/no?

It'll be fine. Hard drives are mounted vertically in computers all the time, it's not a problem. Go for gold.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Thanks for that, I had thought the same but as HDD is 24/7 thought may cause extra bearing wear.  I'll give it a go.

My only suggestion would be stand it so the cooling fan end is at the top given heat rises and can be vented out more efficiently.

Then you can't use the remote.

Fan at the top as in still facing backwards and front still facing front otherwise you're quite right the remote won't work and would be pretty ugly to look at.
