1. Did you use copykern to replace the stock kernel with LBA48 aware kernel?
Series 1 can only use 137GB w/ the stock kernel.

2. What is the model of your two identical hard drives?
Series 1 has problem using two identical older model Seagate drives.

I did not know the kernel could be replaced, I should look into that. Hinsdale does not mention this, but does say that only 137 GB of any disk will be seen. Does the Series 1 kernel see only 137 GB of any combination of disks? If so, that is likely my problem.

I got two Seagate ST3160023A-RK disks. I had found on a forum that someone was using this model successfully. Interestingly, these are detected by my PC BIOS as ST3160815A, which I had considered as well.
If you used Hinsdale guide, I think the boot cd they want you to use is not LBA48 aware so you don't have to use copykern to replace the kernel.

137GB limit is per drive.

ST3160023A-RK is from the externl packaging right. Actual model number should be on the white label on the drive. I had trouble using dual 7200.9 on Series 1.

If your bios says ST3160815A, that looks like is 7200.10 drive. Maybe that problem is still not fixed on the Seagate firmware. Or maybe it's Tivo's firmware problem.
