Can a Premiere XL have one internal 2TB and one external 1TB?

    I currently have a Series 3 HD with 2 TB. One is internal and the other is an eSATA external via the WD MyTivo Expander.


    I originally used MFSlive to "marry" the two 1 TB drives and have never had any issues with my Series 3.

    I am now going to purchase a Tivo Premiere XL. I plan to replace the one internal 1 TB drive with a DVR Dude 2 TB internal drive. Once this is done, can I still add the eSATA external 1 TB MyTivo DVR expander that I used on the Series 3? This is supposed to be a "plug-in-play" add-on drive and it'd be cool if I could have a total of 3 TB (2TB internal,1TB external) with my new Premiere XL. Let me know if this can be done, or if you have any recommendations.

    Thanks everyone.

    Why would you pay extra for the XL model, only to remove the hard drive, which is the only thing you are really paying more for? Why not buy a standard unit and upgrade that?

    $200 is a lot extra for a glow remote and the letters "XL" painted on the front.

    As for adding the expander, why not ask DVR Dude if it will work?

    XL is THX-certified (Whatever that means).
