Largest Hard Drive for a Premiere?

I have received my Tivo Premiere Elite. (The 4 Tuner, 2TB hard drive)

I haven't had a chance to unbox it and install the unit. Sadly, as I haven't really been home to do so.

Currently I have 3 TiVo's that are operational.

1. An original S3, with hard drive upgraded to a 1TB unit.

2. A TiVo HD unit with internal drive upgraded to a Western Digital Raptor 10k rpm, 300gb hard drive.

3. a Tivo Premier unit (Basic one for $99), that I upgraded the hard drive internally to a 1tb unit.

So my question is... What is the largest single hard drive that the Tivo Premiere Elites will support? Has anyone tried them with a 2.5TB or 3TB drive yet?

Has anyone plugged in an external eSATA 2tb, 2.5tb, or 3TB drive yet and got it to work?

- Internal drive can be copied to a 2TB target drive. The Comer tool reports an expansion failure when trying to expand on a 3TB target drive.
