How to really really expand Series3 TiVo storage

eSATA driveLast month some fine folks at the TiVo Community Forum figured out how to enable that little eSATA port on the Series3 TiVo to let you plug in an external hard drive and expand your storage. Just one problem, it wouldn't work with modified boxes. So if you'd already upgraded the internal hard drive, no external happiness for you.

The latest version of MFSLive lets you have your cake and eat it too. In other words, the LiveCD of TiVo hacking tools will let you upgrade your internal hard drive and add an eSATA hard drive, meaning you could theoretically create a TiVo with 2TB of storage. That's somewhere around enough storage for nearly 300 hours of HDTV recordings or a mind-boggling 2500 hours of standard definition TV.

Someone remind me to stop typing stories up when I'm tired. I'll fix that too, thanks.

Am I reading that wrong? Shouldn't it say "it wouldn't work with modified boxes"?
