Reading the TiVo upgrade how-to page, it says you need to modify the first drive to tell the TiVo it has a second HD. Yet TiVo upgrade sites sell ready made HD's that they say are ready to go and you simply install them without ever modifying the first drive. So do I have to modify the first drive or not? This is an HDVR2 DirecTivo and a HD-250-DVR TiVo.

Upgrade kits are meant to replace the drive in the unit not be added to the existing drive. The two drives need to be connected up to your computer and appropriate software run to "marry" the two drives. Once married, if either fails TiVo will not work until fixed.
