One thing nobody has mentioned yet - the reason several replys are recommending expanding the hard drive is that there is no way to do what you originaly asked "...use the computer HD like it was inside the Tivo box." Tivo does not recognize or use external network storage.

The other options using the software people have mentioned involve moving individual programs to the PC (which must be initiated at the PC end, either manually or, after some setup, automatically). They are not in any way transparent and will require your dad to at least learn to use the Tivo Desktop software.
