But I expect the new hardware platform support larger than 2TB drives.
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.
