The weaknees upgrade instructions work great:

In a 2 drive system if either drive goes you loose everything. I would buy a bigger drive and stay with a one drive system keeping the old 40 gig for a backup but that is just my preference.

Good Luck!

Series 2 only has one port.
If you mean USB port, you are mistaken, it has two.

If you mean a place to connect a hard drive, it only has one PATA/IDE header, but two drives can be connected via ribbon cable to that header, one Master and one Slave.

It wasn't until the Series 3 TiVos came along that they switched over to SATA ports.

And every TiVo since has had an internal SATA port and an eSATA external port.
