    What is the going recommendation for upgrading and supersizing the internal drive?

    I'm seeing winmfs, MFS linux boot disc and jmfs. I've done the linux procedure on older TIVOs but the winmfs is appealing so that i can have a backup for the future. Any opinions? Do they all still work on the new 4 tuner box?

    thanks,
    Josh

    winmfs does not work with a Premiere.

    Use jmfs and refer to the Upgrade forum.

    You can use DvrBARS (aslo found in the upgrade forum) to back it up before and/or after using jmfs to expand it.

    That's what I did and it worked great! Remember to expand and then supersize.

    There is a thread in the upgrade forum. I just did this. Took a brand new P4 and upgraded it to 319 hrs with a 2tb drive. The original drive is stored as a backup.
