Unplug the TiVo. Then connect the eSata HDD to TiVo. Power up the external drive, then power up TiVo.
If TiVo "likes" the drive, it will identify an external drive is attached.
As I recall TiVo does the rest.
Know this: if the external drive is ever divorced from TiVo; all recordings are lost.
I do not know if a usb/eSata adapter will work.
Since you have these extra storage devices and you are starting from scratch, so to speak. Now would be the time to connect them up and see if they work.
