    my SVR-2000 with a 160GB HDD finally crapped out and i'm trying to setup a new 400GB single A drive. I'm pretty sure this can be done. Can anyone point me in the right direction for this upgrade. I tried the Hinsdale guide along with MFS 2.0 and everything looked great. It said I now have 432 hours of recording time so I popped it in my tivo and got the dreaded "severe error" screen. I know I'm not doing something right so any help appreciated. TIA :)

    Sounds like you forgot the -r 4 switch right before the -xzpi part. Also be sure to run the following commands after the restore:

    mountcd
    copykern

    Thanks for the reply. Fun, you are correct I didn't use the -r 4 but in the hinsdale guide it says that step can be switched with this "mfsrestore -s 127 -xzpi /mnt/dos/tivo.bak /dev/hdc" command letting me restore and expand all at once. Also where do I step by step intructions?

    Yes, as the latter commands fix the kernel on the TiVo drive to recognize LBA48, which MFStools does not do.

    Here's my step by step incase anyone needs a guide. Also I'm at work so I haven't tested and if anyone sees anything wrong please correct me:

    1. downloaded the "ptvlba48-4.04" file and burned the as .iso disc
    2. hooked up drive for backup
    3. mount /dev/hdW1 /mnt
    4. mfsbackup -f 9999 -1so /mnt/backup.bak /dev/hdX
    5. rebooted and switched drives
    6. mount /dev/hdW1 /mnt
    7. mfsrestore -s 127 -r 4 -zxpi /mnt/backup.bak /dev/hdZ
    8. new drive now showing 4XX hours
    9. mountcd
    10. copykern and followed steps for stand alone 3.0
