-- need HDVR2 upgrade help (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=112531)
problem solved - beware
The drive acts just like it did during the TEST run! I was thinking about that along with the fact that I have a 45 GIG drive in my PC. CRAP!!!! I wrote the copy/expand to my PC drive! Sure enough, I tried booting the PC and got a boot error. Put the PC drive in the Tivo and there it was. Reported 39 hour record time (extra 5 gig space) and played all old programs.
Now I can't take the ENTIRE blame (sure some of it was my fault for not checking each step). But at the beginning of the hinsdale how-to document, they define the default IDE connections
hda - pc FAT32 C: drive
hdb - primary slave - new bigger single drive
hdc - secondary master - old tivo drive
hdd - secondary slave - cd cd-rw drive
those settings worked fine for the backup and test steps. But when you perform the copy/expand command for a single to single drive (slow option):
mfsbackup -Tao - /dev/hdc | mfsrestore -s 127 -xzpi - /dev/hda
YOU END UP WRITING TO THE FAT32 PC DRIVE!!!!
Well I should have looked at the boot script to varify the drive settings.
Luckily I didn't use my new XP computer, but was using the old Windows-ME computer. I don't think I lost anything important.
Thanks for the help!
