    Yes, the 137GB limit was history for SA Series2 TiVos several years ago. Use the new MFSLive boot CD it has fixed several bugs that are in the other MFSTools v2 boot CD's.

    Yes, the 137GB limit was history for SA Series1 and SA Series2 TiVos several years ago.

    The barrier was broken at about the same time the OP joined TCF.

    That being said, many S2 and all S1 prom boot code is still NOT lba48-aware, so your boot partition needs to be kept under the 137GB mark

    True, but 99.9 of the time, all the relevant boot and system partitions fall below the 137GB limit anyhow.
