16 hours sounds like a long time to me...

My dd from the original TiVo drive to a 120Gb took 6 hours 20 minutes.

I'm told that it can be quicker than this if you set up the system to use DMA. I haven't tried this however, as I only needed to backup my disk once and have no need to try this technique again.

Has anyone tried this/know if it makes a difference?
