Question I "zipped" my HDVR2 but how do I expand to the full 160GB capacity?

*** Sorry, I posted this in wrong section ***

I asked this question a couple times but I haven't received a good reply with instructions on how and what to do. I also did a lot of surfing and I haven't found the straight answer so this might be a good place to capture the very latest instructions.

I recently used the Zipper to hack my HDVR2 which was a factory system except I had replaced the HD w/160GB HD using WeaKnees instructions. I didn't bother at the time to make the HDVR2 recognize the full 160GB.

Now I would like the HDVR2 to see the full 160GB as it reports only 120 hours of recording time. What do I do next? Are there options for me that will allow me to expand the size of the drive w/o losing my existing programming?

I belive I tried the expand command after booting from the zipper's tools CD and the command reported that the drive was expanded but the HDVR2 still shows 120 hours of recording time.

right
you cannot expand that drive again unless you start with a new software image and lose all your shows.

simply run the zipper with the instantcake image already linked in the directions.
And you won't gain much maybe 10 hrs.
