I have a Seagate 80 gig drive in my tivo (DHR212). I bought a tivo off ebay (PVT300) with a life time subscription. I want to move all the data (including my recordings) from my old tivo to the new tivo. I have another 80 gig Seagate drive that I want to put in my new unit. So here is the problem I am having, When I use MFStools to do the copy, it comes back saying that the target drive is too small (both are 80 gig drives). The command I am using is:
Mfsbackup – Tao -/dev/hdc | mfsrestore –s 127 –xzpi - /dev/had. In the how too there is a line about if you are restoring to the same drive remove the –s 127. I tried that and got the same error.
