    I recently decided to upgrade the hard drive in my aging Toshiba SD-H400. I've imaged a new drive using Instant Cake for my device. No issues there.

    Previously when using the TiVo I used my TiVo Plus trial and was able to switch the Now Playing list into a folder view that put each show in a separate folder. When I returned to TiVo Basic mode the folders remained. Now that I have reimaged a new drive I've lost the folders. Is there any way to change the Now Playing List view without signing up for TiVo Plus for a month?

    Another option I'd considered is cloning my original TiVo drive with a tool like Clonezilla then extending the partition out to fill the new bigger drive. Having not carefully examined the drive with a partition tool I don't even know what kind of partitions TiVo's use, are they standard FAT32 or ext3. Are their any other strange things I should look out for. Ie: bootloader, or MRB settings. Has anyone cloned an existing drive, would it work?

    Tivo basic service is basically the guide data and nothing else. Tivo service for most other Tivo includes everything including streaming and transfers of recordings.

    Tivo uses something like APM (apple partition mapping) and not anything like what's on a Windows or MAC drive. Using those tools from a windows or MAC system will not work.

    I was able to clone my original TiVo drive using MFSLive and it gave me back the settings I wanted.
