Last time I checked on this you could not. What I think I remember is that you can use a larger drive but then what you had on the internal drive would be unusable. I have not looked into this in a while so I would keep googleing it, I will look back into this again. If I find anything out I will let you know because our internal hardrive is often full and degrades performance of the box.

DirecTV's website tells you how you can increase your dvr storage right on their page. You must have an ESATA hard drive. Just plug it in to the USB port on the back of your DVR. Then cycle power and when it reboots it will now be using the new hard drive you added. Its that simple. BUT YOU WILL NOT BE USING YOU BUILT IN HARD DRIVE, SO YOU WONT HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR PRERECORDED SHOWS.
GOOD LUCK
