Just FYI, i bought a plus and had a 3tb drive laying around. This drive was being used on a windows box so it was formatted NTFS but had a ton of files already on it.
I just opened the plus box, unwrapped it, unscrewed the box itself and swapped the 3tb drive in and 1tb drive out. After plugging everything back in I plugged in the power cord and started guided setup.
That is it, nothing else needed to happen, took no effort at all and my "plus" is now a "pro"

I was actually able to use a 10/15 torx bit to get the box open. It wasn't a perfect fit but it worked.

I would strongly advise against SSD usage on a tivo. Essentially the way the tivo fills and writes data could be a massive issue if there isn't TRIM support for SSDs on the operating system level.
I would guess that since Tivo has no SSD support that TRIM support isn't coded and so you will very quickly fill your hard drive and notice terrible degraded performance fairly quickly.
Also, with the current performance of your standard 3TB drives working great what benefit would a SSD have on a Tivo? Starting a video a fraction of a second faster? Seems there is more of a cost and technology burden then a possible improvement.
