Maximum drive capacity under TiVo 7.2.x software

Just thought I'd ask. My TiVo (Series2, 80 hour, seems to be USB 1.1 ports) unit is currently on the 7.2.x software (probably getting the Yahoo/Fandango HME updates tomorrow), and I thought I'd ask what the current limit on hard drive addressing capacity is for TiVos these days. 600 GB? 1 Terabyte?

And has anyone had any success in using something like Norton Ghost to transfer a drive image from the smaller stock hard drive to the large capacity replacement?

Thanks...

I'm not sure, but with the proper block and swap sizes, rather large, at least 500 GB.

Thanks for the info there!

Now, if anyone has ever tried using Norton Ghost to replicate their standard TiVo hard drive info to copy over to a larger capacity drive...
