According to the Google machine, that 500AVVS is a "green" drive (therefore the RPM may not be a fixed rate but it's going to be closer to 5400 than 7200 most of the time, which inside a TiVo is a good thing because that's plenty fast and means it's cooler and quieter), and it has Intellipark, so you'd need to disable that.
If we're starting with the original 160GB drive the procedure is the same for the 500, the 1TB, or a 2TB.
Use WinMFS to do mfscopy from the 160 to the target.
When it finishes and says you have extra space, do you want to expand, you tell it no.
Then you select the new drive (previously the 160 will have been the "selected" drive), click on mfsinfo to make sure everything looks okay.
The partition map will show a big Apple Free partition at the end of the drive.
You should probably put it in the TiVo and test it at that point before hooking it back up to expand (as far as I know you cannot hotswap, and must shut down the PC before removing the drive, then if it works the TiVo okay hook it back to the PC, boot Windows, start WinMFS again, and select the drive again)
Anyway, at some point after checking the new drive with mfsinfo, whether you test it in the TiVo first or roll the dice, make sure it's the drive selected and click on mfsadd.
If it's a big enough drive it'll say something about limiting a partition to 1TB in size.
Tell it no, do not limit the size.
As long as that 652 (or any Series 3 platform TiVo) is running version 11.0k of the TiVo software (or the recently released 11.0m), it can handle a 2TB drive and a partition over 1TB.
That WD1002FBYS is going to run kinda toasty, and it would make a good drive in a PC running TiVo Desktop.
