Adding internal drive to Tivo with external dvr extender

So I was lazy and bought the WD external drive extender a few months ago. Now I'm wondering if you can upgrade the internal drive to add even more space?

You cannot upgrade the internal without removing the external first, and it would also result in losing your recordings. You could transfer them to computer or another Tivo before removing.

To remove external, you must shut off Tivo and External, unplug the cable to external, plug back in Tivo and follow on-screen to confirm divorcing drive.
