    This product is still very very new (barely shipping yet) but is #1 on my list right now. I'm just wondering if the hard drive in this unit (40GB) will be upgradable, similar to the way the tivo units can be upgraded for larger capacity. I'd love to stick a 120GB in this to triple the capacity. The 40GB drive supports about 52 hours of recording in EP (low quality) mode. I'd love to get this same amount of time (or more) in SP mode.

    As this unit matures and if anyone knows any info about this please post here!

    For kicks, I changed the hard drive out with a 20gb drive. It immediately formatted it and it did recognize the size and gave me half the time (makes sense). I then put a 80gb drive and it too was formatted immediately. It looks like it will only recognize or allows the 40gb capacity. To my dismay, when I put the original 40gb back in, it formatted it too. Any suggestion?
