advice needed on adding new hard drive

hi guys, im new here, and im looking to add a new hard drive to my current series 2 HUMAX box (beginning 590-) and figured id come here for a few pointers:
  • the hard drive i am looking to add is a 200GB drive. will tivo recognize the full 200 automatically or will it only recognize the 137?
  • where should i purchase the mounting bracket? and do i need any "extras" (or "deluxe") packages? what should i expect to spend on this?
  • how long does the entire process take, from the time the box is opened until the new HD is operational? i would assume the majority of the time will be spent backing up the current factory HD

any other feedback/advice is more than welcome! thanks!
