I've just been reading through this and was having a great laugh. I can't wait until the warranty runs out on my tivo so I can start working with it. But, by that time someone will have already figured out how to make Tivo recognize external HD's on the USB. Then I can stick my terrabyte station on it! LOL. Seriously though if I can get this PC to Tivo xfer rate issue licked I will have TONS of space. I have 2 terrabyte NAT servers and one I wanted to fill with all our old VHS movies and DVD's so we can simply pcik from a menu. If I can't get that working I will look into the sling system or some such.
