    I'm replacing the internal hard drive on my new TivoHD with a 1TB Western Digital "Green Drive" WD10EACS

    What swap size would you recommend?

    128MB should work fine

    Rule of thumb for swap files is 1MB for every 2GB of storage. In your case, I'd create a 500MB swap file. 128MB is way too small for a drive that size. If you get stuck in a GSOD you'll never recover if the swap file is too small.
