Wouldn't the www.mfslive.org CD work better for this kind of thing?

Spike says that in his new v 1.3 he has fixed the -r2 bug so it will now work over 274Gb and he seems to imply this might give more efficient disk use than the larger blocks involved with -r4. He says-r4 is now only needed for HD Tivos.

Found the reason...

It's because you already filled up the partition table when you expanded to the 250. You can not expand again to the 400.

Just have to find a way round it to save the recordings.
The www.mfslive.org CD Beta version overcomes this problem by letting you expand the partition size.

Tried that but it doesn't support the -f option (or maybe I didn't get the beta version?). Now trying WinMFS (beta)!! Wish me luck.
I hope that WinMFS Beta support S1 Tivos.

You could always PM Spike the site and forum owner to make sure.

Well all the blurb said WinMFS supports S1 UK tivo and it did copy across a large chunk of stuff but when put back into tivo, it got past the cachcard load and the almost there then hung - no tivo startup movie :( :(

However, tivoweb is up and tivo is recording but there is nothing on the TV screen (SCART output).

The original Tivo HDD still works though :) :)
May be try messaging Spike on the forum at mfslive or start a thread there about using WinMFS to upgrade UK Tivos. He is usually very speedy and helpful in responding.

You could always message Spike asking for a link to the last version of the MFSLive CD Beta as that definitely seemed to work expanding partitions on our UK S1 Tivos.

Edit: While typing this post, the GSOD fixed itself and Tivo seems to be working and it has found the extra disk space :) :) 135 hours at best (459 basic).
Did you use copykern at the end of the process Spike gave you to change to the kernel that will support more than 137Gb? Also what size swap file did you use.

I'm not an expert on Tivo hard drive upgrading like blindlemon is but only basing my comments on what I have read here previously and having done my own one upgrade keeping recordings from 30Gb + 15Gb to 250Gb + 250Gb.

I'm just concerned you might get problems later when your recordings start to exceed 137Gb, even though things may look ok for the time being.
