Possible to install a Dual Tuner?

Hi, I'm thinking about purchasing a TiVo TCD540040 and was wondering if there's any way to install a dual tuner in it?

Absolutely not. You'd have to completely modify the mainboard and software to support two tuners. It's not like installing another tuner in a PC. If you want a dual tuner Tivo you'll have to buy a Tivo that comes with two tuners.

Go buy a dual tuner to begin with. Not that you'd get much use out of it, if your provider is one with limited to no analog.
