    100hrs off of twin 80GB HD's?

    Hi all,

    Did I do something wrong?

    The tivo master/orig was hdb & the 2nd 80GB was named hdc during the 25xtreme set up. I followed the prompts to bless the second drive.
    It reported recording time as up to 100hours variable?

    thanks in advance

    You did not tivomad the A drive before you blessed the B drive.
    You will have to start over.

    Make sure you answer yes to "do you want to tivomad " or somrthing like that when it asks.

    Also answer yes to "is your target Tivo >140 gigs"

    Hiya T_RJ
    Thanks for the response. I'm pretty sure I did all that you suggessted. However, I'm more that willing to start over again.

    I just took the 80 GB Western Digitial HD out of the box & wired according to 25xtremes instruction.s

    I was wondering if I should have formatted the drive first.
    I'm going to be placing an order for the TurrboNet for tivo this weekend & want to start getting my ducks in all in a row.

    I truly to read alot but it does get confusing at times.
    Thanks for the response
