Tivo Upgrade/Hacker Recommendation Needed

I have an original Phillips HDR112 Tivo that I'd like to have the following done to:

  • Add a second hard disk: 120GB or so
  • Double the RAM
  • Add a network (Ethernet or WiFi) card
  • Install hacks so I can telnet/ssh in, use a web interface, etc

And I don't want to do to it myself. Actually, that's not true. I'd love to do it, but I don't have the time. Can anyone recommend a place I can ship it to get all this stuff done, or someone in The Bay Area who does this sorta stuff as a side gig?

I'd obviously prefer someone local and will even buy all the parts in advance for that person if I'm told what I need to buy.

I've found a few places on-line that do some of this, but so far none do it all. And I'd rather not spend forever looking either.

Leads, anyone?
