No harm in speculation as long you don't go out and purchase the over 2.2Tb drive now for TiVo use, I am also sure if/when TiVo comes out with a 6 tuner whole home solution TiVo will break the 2.2Tb barrier and also have programs grouped first by a family name then by program so little Johnny will have his kids programs under his name and mom under her name etc. TiVo could also come out with a two cable card TiVo that would have 12 tuners. Speculation is fun!

The "BIOS" (or whatever it is) needs to be replaced with UEFI, or something like it.

APM must be replaced as well, probably with GUID. This will break every single tool ever written for Tivo. All the tools would have to be modified to support the new partition system. So you couldn't take advantage of the large hard drive, anyway. Not for a while at least.
