    I need to clone a Roamio drive. Frequent pixelation, so I think it might be going bad. Going to put in a 2T one instead of the original 1T. I've done plenty of cloning before with other Tivos, but oddly this time, when I boot the JMFS CD, it does not detect the Roamio drive as a Tivo drive. Any idea why this is happening?

    Most likely, its not detecting the OS on the drive and it really isn't there.
    Try MFSTools 3.2.

    I've tried MFSTools 3.2 but have no idea what command to issue to copy sda to sdb. Have read most of the MFSTools thread (not all 30 pages) and looked at some "summary" pages, but to no avail. I've used various tools before to upgrade my Tivos for about 10 years, but am finding myself stumped with MFSTools 3.2.
