-- Upgrade did not expand capacity (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=181700)

I'm getting a similar error - have I ran into the same problem?

UK Thomson single drive TiVo (Quantum 40GB)
Added a 15GB 'B' drive a while back.
(Moved from 39hrs to 53hrs capacity)

I've just used 'dd' to copy the 15GB 'B' drive onto a new 40GB quantum (identical to my 'A' drive). Pulled the drives, and tested the new pair - everything works fine, but only 53 hr capacity reported (as expected). Put the drives back into the PC, and did (with 'A' drive as primary master and 'B' drive as primary slave)

'mfsadd -x /dev/hda /dev/hdb'

It just complains:

Current estimated standalone size is 53 hrs
Nothing to add!

If I have hit the same problem, what are my options? (I've only done one upgrade before, so can't see how I could have ran out of partitions......)

[Thomson Scenium 6020 80GB (Airnet - TiVoWeb - EndPad) / Pioneer DBR-T210 (ex-ITV Digital) DTT]
