    Re: 160 GB updates

    No problem. This pretty much confirms what mrblack and I posted above.

    I drop-kicked a new 160GB drive in my HDVR2 on friday. The MFSTools2 boot CD I used saw the drive as 137GB so I figure I'm...

    Does your Tivo boot up fully?

    What happens when you hit enter? Do you get a bash prompt? If you do, check your directories from there for those "missing" files.

    no update for HDVR2?

    What did you use to expand to your new drives? A boot CD, or MFSTools 2 disc with an operating system that supports lba48?
