Never messed with DirecTV tivo's but assume you may have to use the copykern command after the mfsrestore is done like on all standalone series ones. What size swap file did you install?

Not updating the kernel will start showing its ugly face as soon as your drive gets about half full with all sorts of problems - bad recordings or no recordings or ?. This is not an option. I learned the hard way after upgrading and reselling four series ones without using copykern. They all ended up coming back, some after quite a while.

No argument or real disagreement, I just always use the PTV LBA48 software and have never messed with WeaKnees because of their 137GB limit. I continue learn more Tivo related info every day, so this was helpful to me also.
