    Question HR20 vs HR21-100 HD upgrade while maintainging recordings

    Is the partition layout the same for the HR21-100 as the howto's description of the HR20? Meaning are there three partitions, with the third being the recorded show storage? I want to upgrade my HR21-100's drive to a 1TB while maintaining my settings and recorded shows.

    Yes, you can use the same process for copying everything to a larger drive. DBStalk has complete details. Start with this thread. Don't use the procedure that calls for copying the drive using Ghost and manually expanding the partition.

    29 Thank you!

    Being the Master Procrastinator that I am, I am only now getting around to upgrading my HR21-100. While searching around to reacquaint myself with the procedure I came across this thread. It appears I forgot to thank you for your answer and pointer to DBStalk.

    So, thank you!

    just watch out which version of GParted Live you use. I donwloaded the lone that was around 0.5 and it did not work, going back to 0.4.6-1 did the trick

    there is another thread on dbstalk that deatails which versions work and which are giving people headaches - - search through this:
    Two DSR7000s both at 6.4a/101 from slices; both originally sleepered version 3, then 4.01b, 6.2, 6.2a.
    TWP 2.1, Superpatched, 300GB Seagate in one, 750GB in the other, USB 2 w/ Jamie's backport drivers
    One HR10-250 at 6.4a, networked, Superpatched, stock 250GB drive
    One HR23
    Patiently waiting for a new DirecTV/Tivo
    One AM21 hooked to the HR23
