Ya, I asked that ambiguously.

SATA works consistently.
New USB-to-SATA adapters are suppose to work, but is not 100%.
Old USB-to-SATA adapters are unlikely to work.

PS. The rest is Ok, you can delete it if you want some privacy.
I didn't notice your line of code above - per your suggested wiki reading I downloaded UBCD v531 - ran HDAT2 - removed HPA - set to full capacity and from that point everything ran great - within 45 mins I had 637 HD hours of recording available and was recording my first movie. P.S. didn't have to fuss with the cablecard settigs.

Thanks telemark for all that you contribute to the fourm.

On my Mac with a SATA to USB adapter, I can run jmfs (MfsLs and MfsLayout), and it recognizes the whole thing. I even tweaked MfsLs.java a bit to make it list files of arbitrary depth instead of the default depth of 1. With fuse-ext2 installed, I can also mount partition 4, 7, 9 and 14, see the kernel, logs and SQLite databases.

However, I have not done any cloning and expansion yet. I am planning to do a 320GB to 500GB clone, followed by expansion with jmfs. I know it's not appropriate for this thread, because these are two Premieres, not Roamio.

In any case, I think Mac should work fine.

The only difference I've noticed on Mac is one of the block devices ( /dev/rdisk, /dev/disk ) would only support the device's native block size, which is different than Linux which would emulate multiple sizes.

Is it just me or is the link no longer valid?

It's not just you. The two links appear not functional at this time.

It's down.

tiny.cc is down... It's not allowing new entries and others links appear non-operational as well.
It's consistent with their internal database being offline.

It's easiest to wait it out, and if they don't bring it back by tomorrow, I can migrate to another service.

I can / have added an alternate link for the basic installer which bypasses tiny.cc, for those who can't wait, but it's only usable for those who can use tar/gzip on their own.

It's Up

Checking this morning and they're magically back now.
I haven't changed anything so it was an outage.

Sorry, my mistake. Firewall issue on my end.

Thanks!

I haven't made any changes since Dropbox forced HTTPS, on 7/27/2014.

That forces a 301, 302, before a 200, but it works in the end so I wanted to minimize changes until I could do a rewrite and comprehensive testing.

I just did a run through and didn't see anything off. I'm not sure what you're experiencing from your description. Maybe post the last few message lines and what OS you're running and I can tell what actually is broken.

Confirm MfsAdd (expand 320GB backup on a 500GB drive) does not work on Mac:

****
expanding '/dev/disk4'
****
Before --------------------

Size of zones:
Used: 588038008 (280.40G)
Free: 28408280 (13.55G)
Total: 616446288 (293.94G)

Recordable space reported by Tivo: 616457216 (293.95G), approximately 45 HD hours

Expand did not finish successfully. Would you like to retry?

[Y]-Yes, [N]-No, [X]-Exit, [s]-Shutdown and <Enter>:

Another success story.

After the .cc outage and issue with my own firewall was resolved, I ran the upgrade against a WD 4TB Red and it ran and completed flawlessly. 15 minutes later, I was booting up to a Guided Menu Screen.

FIOS pairing for premium channels was lost but was fixed with a quick support chat.

After one day, everything looks good.

Just wanted to note that I never even opened my PC case. I used a USB -> SATA adapter on Knoppix 7.4 Live with no problems.

THANKS telemark (and other contributors) for all of your hard work on this!

That's not a very descriptive error message. If you want to try something else, run it against /dev/rdiskX instead of /dev/diskX ... Otherwise, gonna need to find the more verbose messages if available.

Cool. Could you add what adapter that is?
