I recently upgraded my Phillips Series 1 to a 160 GB Seagate disk. Things were working fine and I decided to add a second 160 GB disk of the same make and model. I ran the mfsadd command given by Hinsdale:
mfsadd -r 4 -x /dev/hdd /dev/hdb
Now the unit will not get beyond the initial firmware screen. If I disconnect the second drive, the unit goes into a boot cycle, restarting after the grey "wait a few minutes" screen. All mfs procedures indicated I should be seeing a nice fat 320 hour TiVo, but I seem to be stuck on the second hard drive problem. Any advice would be appreciated.
BTW, this unit did have two drives previously, 13 GB and 80 GB. Then the 80 died and it was working on 13 GB for a while, at which point I decided to go to 2x160 GB. This initially did not work, so I backed off to 1 160 GB, opting to do an mfsadd later, which brings me to this day. And yes, my jumpers are in place with the A drive being master and the B drive being slave.
