    I would like to thank everyone for their very helpful input. :)
    Speaking of usb, I do have a usb to ide adapter lying around.
    Would that work? My unit will only hold one hard drive inside.

    I don't think the USB-IDE will work, the PC does most of the heavy lifting. TiVo running Linux treats two drives as a single large one. If you don't replace the DVD drive, you'd have physical space for a second drive. I don't know if anyone tried that. You could search the TivO with DVD forum to check.

    A 250GB drive can be found for about $50 for OEM drives. I'd try the 80 first to make sure the TiVo works to minimize the total investment. If it does, then you could always expand/replace later.
