    I have a Philips DirecTV/Tivo that I just got back in early Sept. It holds like 30 hours of viewing, and that's just not enough if we go on vacation or something. How would I go about upgrading the machine? Obviously I can't just open the box and drop in a bigger hard drive. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Indeed, you can pretty much open the box and drop in a new hard drive. I'd recommend a pre-blessed drive from a place like Weaknees. I got my second drive there and the instructions made things ridiculously easy. I think they have drives ranging from 60-120 hours with the 120 hour drive selling for about $200.

    I did the drop-in from weakknees.com, it was easy to do and works great!
