    Simple answer: No.

    Complected answer: It will not be plug and play but given that Weakness has found away to provide dual 2TB drives (one internal & one external), there must be a hack to do it we just don't have it.

    Yeah... on my end, the TivoHD (now with a 2TB internal drive) sees the 318 Hours of HD... when I plug in the 500GB Expander it shows it as being plugged in, however it doesn't show the additional time (still 318 Hours) and it keeps coming up with the message that an external drive has been found...

    Seeing how I had 160MB and a 500GB expander and now I have a 2TB internal, the 500GB is probably overkill, but I'd like it to work "just because"...

    If anyone has any input, It would be much appreciated. :)

    Thanks,
    Pete

    John's...
    Even at weaKnees, that is not an option on a TiVo HD, only on a Premiere.

    I'm guessing I'll eBay the expander...
