[added comment] This does not sem to be covered in the FAQ, which is why I ask it here and why I expect that the answer will be, "Yes, it really is that easy." [end comment] I'm torturing myself by reading about all the wonderful things I'm going to do with my Series2 SA once I get one (soon, REALLY soon), and after deciding exactly what hard drive I'm going to add and which ethernet solution I'm going to use, I read about using a USB-ethernet adapter plugged into the USB port. I'm asking myself, is it really that easy or am I missing something? From what I understand, all I'll have to do is buy a $5 dongle, plug it in to the Tivo and my router, and change the dialing prefix?!?!?! Is that it? -Pete P.S. Also, does anyone have firm information on which series2 models have a bracket already in place for a second drive and which don't? I'm looking at the 60-hr Tivo, the 80-hr Sony and the 40-hr Tivo machines. I'd like to go with the cheapest (40-hr from tivo.com only, for $199) and upgrade it, but I'm not crazy about the aftermarket HD bracket kits. How does one tell?
