    I have the "Hacking the TIVO" book which I bought a couple of years ago,
    and am using the BlessTIVO no the boot CD that came with the book to
    format a 300GB drive to add to my existing 160GB drive in my HDVR2

    BlessTIVO worked fine, however, it says my drive capacity is 127GB.

    I am a newbie at this stuff, however, from what I understand it may be a linux kernel issue??

    Can someone please give me a DETAILED description on how to fix my problem.

    Use an LBA48 boot disc, and mfsadd. BlessTiVo doesn't work when the A drive is expanded.
