    From a new Tivo user: Sorry if this is simpleminded, but I thought at some point there was to be an option to add on/plug in an external drive to the Tivo S3HD to augment the drive that is already there. Is this coming? Thanks.

    The very first sticky is about adding an eSata drive for S3's: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=350510

    If you have the newer HD TiVo with the cableCards in the front of the unit, it appears to be a little harder, but the directions for doing this are in the thread.

    This functionality is not supported by TiVo, but is enabled. bktv has done a terrific job of keeping this current. spike2k5 is the guy who is providing the "know how".

    The TiVo Community Forum is your source of how to's - many of which are back door techniques/tricks such as how to enable the 30 second commercial skip.
