From the TiVo site Premiere FAQ:
"You can connect an external hard drive via eSATA. The 1 terabyte My Book AV DVR Expander from Western Digital can be purchased on tivo.com for $199.99."
Or for less elsewhere. Just be aware that unless you've made mods and patches to your internal drive (inadvisable), it supports just two brand name external drives - the one mentioned above, and the 500GB version of the one mentioned above. No other external hard drives will be recognized.
Keep in mind that once you install an external drive, your point of failure for spinning objects just doubled. If you disconnect the external drive, or it fails, the internal drive will only have the recordings that were made befor you installed the external drive.
