Basically and TiVo with a service number beginning with 5 or higher has "hardware" LBA48 (at the prom level), and any software versions 5 or higher have LBA48 "software" at the kernel level.

Any drive with a nominal capacity above 274GB + original capacity requires larger allocation blocks, which you invoke with the -r4 option when you expand.

You also need a larger swap.
My TiVo service number is 240-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx and my software version is 7.2.1
I currently have two 120gb drives in, but want to swap for two 300gb+ drives.
Since my service number starts with a 2, not a 5, will it work?

So since I've already upgraded my tivo with two 120s, and I have a 240-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx, and want to put in two 400gb drives, how do I go about that? The procedures that I found assume that you start with the virgin tivo drive that it came with
