Thanks albrandwood - will try getting that image backed up safely.
Thank you puffdaddy - You sound really experienced. Unfortunately I am not so gifted
and hope you don't mind a few more questions..
Where would I find a pre-built S1 Kernel that is lbs48 aware?
What would I do with it if I found it?
I haven't a clue about compiling my own one.
How do I find out what version is the stock kernel on my unit?
Would it be advisable/allowed to post a request for these on the UK TiVo forum? I don't want to double post and piss off the mods.
I've read the 14 page thread you mentioned several times and have even more questions -
It has various links one of which is..
... but its way over my head
- should I give up now?
I found this - poss kernel ..
.. if it even is the right one what would I do with it?
And then it says ...
"Note that you cannot use the TiVo bootable ISO images or boot floppies that many people like to use since those do not support IDE disks larger than 128GiB. If you don't have a Linux or BSD machine handy, you should be able to use the Knoppix "live CD". "
....Do I really have to run http://www.knoppix.org/
on my PC before I can do this? As it says ??
There must be an easy-ish way to do this
I can't be the only one too dumb can I?
There are people selling 300GB hard drives ready to drop into my UK spec machine on eBay at over inflated prices. I've just saved up and bought a bare 250gb drive and can't afford to buy 'another'. How are these guys knocking them out so easily?
One last question - When I was looking for guides on how to do the initial HD upgrade there were references to Hinsdales and Weaknees guides... Any link to weekness seemed broken or dead? Am I missing something?
Sorry to be so lame and noobish - I've been trying to look for the answers to the above again and my head is buzzing with overload 'again'
Thanks a million for your help so far
