    I still have my original Series 3 TCD648250B. It has a 500gb drive in it currently and records 74 hours of HD programming.
    I want to increase the capacity and be able to use a 2TB drive in this machine. Anybody ever able to take a source disk and clone it to a 2 TB drive and still have the machine work?

    Depending if it still has a Tivo service subscription, especially lifetime. Otherwise, you cannot activate it anymore. It then needs to be updated to the latest software for that model BEFORE you do Guided Setup (unless it cannot be avoided, get locked because there would be no providers.)

    I've been using a 2TB in my series 3 for a couple years without issue.
