Rik,

You can now upgrade the recording capacity on ALL DirecTivo units (both one and two drive units).

Limitations:

Single Drive DirecTivo: Can be upgraded to Two 100 GB Drives (Total: 200 GB = 178 Hours).

Two Drive DirecTivo: The First Original Drive stays (30 GB); the second drive can be replaced with a 100 GB drive (Total: 130 GB = 116 Hours).

And, Yes, the Tivo info screen shows the total new recording time.

For detailed upgrade instructions and upgrade programs (inluding a bootable CD) see: http://www.newreleasesvideo.com/hinsdale-how-to/

I've tested these instructions with a 2 drive unit and had no problems. The process took three hours. Read the instructions at least twice before beginning. Please Note: These upgrades require moderately advanced computer hardware experience. If you prefer, there is a company available that will upgrade your DirecTivo here: http://www.ptvupgrade.com/
