i would imagine thAT it would be very difficult to upgrade this machine, it will prob have a custom mobo in it, to fit its small size, and it prob won't take a bigger cpu, even if it could you might have a heat problem.

putting in a new harddrive should be less painful, you could prob chuck an 80gig in there no prob, but first make sure you have all the software you require to make it back to its original software state.

you may be able to bung some more memory in it as well, but not sure it would be worth it.

you might be better just building yourself a new pc and continuing to use the one you have as a tivo, perhaps with a bigger h/d

I think you would be better off putting any money into a new system you built for yourself.

Trying to do these sort of systems up is really an exercise in futility and wasting money.
