To the TivoMad question....Yes apparently it was done wrong. Actually, extreme was applied wrong, if it was extremed. What you have is a 40 gig drive with a 30 gig unexpanded image on it. I would suggest using the 40 gig along with the new 120 gig drive. There is no longer a need to keep a whole hard drive as a backup. We can now make backups as small as 130 meg on a CD rom. People only keep hard drives as backups when we couldn't compress the image on a single CD. You can look into Tivomad to see if you can expand the drive & add the 120 gig at the same time(I'm not 100% sure if this can be done?), or you can just download extreme, and do a fresh install of extreme and set it up for both drives. Try exploring the Tivo mad thing first. If you have to do extreme, you may want to follow it up with Kraven's update. If you don't, you will need to at least do a fix to clear the logs.Can I assume that the TivoMad was not done properly to this Quantum 40GB drive when it was written? "Is there any way of correcting this time problem?"
Like I mentioned - I will almost certainly add a completely new drive to this unit - thinking of a 120GB Maxtor. "Should I just keep the Quantum as a backup since it DOES work and build the new drive up as a single drive replacement?"
I can't give you details as to how to confirm if it was extremed. It sounds like it was just because the unexpanded 30 gig extreme image on a 40 gig drive is a somewhat of a common problem with extreme. Otherwise, you just need to explore the file structure, and see if it matche extreme's. You would need to do a little reasearch to know what to look for. Don't know why it matters. It sound's like the unit is hacked the way you want it. If I was you, I would confirm the log hack, however. All your hacks could dissapear one day if you don't. The only log fix I can think of right now is "Clearlogs", but there is a more popular one that is slipping my mind. Try the Sticky's at the top of the directTV tivo forum.
