Anyone tried putting an SSD in their TiVO?

Seeing as my TiVO's (both of them) are starting to get shockingly slow, I would imagine this is not only because the software is demanding more of the CPU and Memory, but also the spinning disk in there is getting older and less efficient.

As SSD's are getting much cheaper now (with a decent size), I was wondering if anyone had put one in their TiVO and how they got on? For example, you can get a 480GB SSD for around £100 now - http://www.ebuyer.com/736385-sandisk-480gb-plus-sata-iii-2-5-inch-7mm-ssd-sdssda-480g-g25

The Tivos belong to Virgin, you are not allowed to do that, also SSDs are not suitable for PVRs mainly due to the fact it writes constantly to the same part of the drive for the buffer
