I am getting a 160 gig maxtor today and i would like to swap the 250 gig seagate in my directtivo s2 with the maxtor. the 250 i will put inside a usb external enclosure for my computer. i dont have a whole bunch of recordings on there. so maybe it will all fit on a image on a 80 gig drive ? though i imagine its very time consuming. perhaps i should try my dad's shareazza for a 6.1 image and expand on the 160 ? btw we sent out rebate well before christmas and we have yet to get a check. before they could find us in their database now they can't. ugh. thats our money. oh also i dont remember the url for telling you the linux commands after you fill in the circles for your unit. also need a source for the best lba48 linux disc. preferably with fast hard drive access.. i'm on a dual core 64 bit machine amd64 machine. thanks dudester.
