wacky Apple TV question

by punterjoe / October 17, 2007 11:39 PM PDT

Maybe the AV forum is a better place to ask, but since this is where I think most of the under-the-hood folks hang, I'll pose it here.
Is the drive on Apple TV SATA or PATA? How hard is it to swap the drive & how large a drive can it take? As 2.5" drive density increases, can the Apple TV be upgraded by a disk swap?
I'm less interested in other AppleTV hacks - although I have fantasized about installing bootcamp or grub & throwing MCE or MythTV on a partition, pluging in a USB-ATSC tuner & making the box moonlight as a PVR. For now, that's merely a dream - that reality could morph into a nightmare.
For now, I'd just like to know if a humble AppleTV can be pumped up to a capacious video vault.
