    YIPPEE!!!

    I have upgraded my S3 with TWO of those $279.99 Best Buy Hitachi 1TB hard drives. One as the new internal hard drive and the other as the eSATA external hard drive.

    My System Information Screen shows that I now have up to 265 HD hours or 2,512 SD hours available.. Way cool... Just in time for the new TV season. Before the upgrade it said up to 32 HD hours and 303 SD hours available

    I ended up having to use the tried and true mfslive.org mfslive 1.2 boot cd and the interactive command generator to perform the upgrade. It took about 5 minutes.

    I want to personnally thank SPIKE of MFSLIVE.ORG for all his help. He learned some things that I hope will make his new WINMFS even better.

    Yeah, I'll have to "settle" for a 1.75TB S3. I only bought two of the BB drives and put one in a THD box.
