Correct. It's a 24 month deal with a 24 month warrantee.

I saw one thread where someone added an eSATA port above the existing eSATA port. My enclosure came with an eSATA port that is intended to be mounted in place of one of the card slots on the back of a PC. I took it off of the metal bracket and checked to see if it will fit in that spot in the Tivo, and it does fit perfectly. So, after my 24 month warrantee is up, I'll probably do that.
Is 4TB the largest drive you can use for this method?

Got it. So my gameplan would be to unhook the internal 500GB Tivo drive and go with external 3.5" drive, extension eSATA cable and just leave the case off the unit since it is in my closet so aesthetics are meaningless. I'm going pure function over form. I have the Bolt VOX 500GB and that thing is filling up insanely fast.
eSATA is not advised. You should just use a long SATA cable from the Bolt plugged directly into the external hard drive but still use the power from the external enclosure.
