sky plus HD hdd upgrade details
docs , help , pdf and the tool required to do the job contained in the zip file
definitely works as I did my own 890 box from 500gig to 2TB and its working ok and all recordings were preserved too

ExPVR V3.5.4497 Beta 24/04/2012
There was a bug in V3.5.4496 which caused ExPVR to fail after loading a disk or image (unless you happened to have SQLite installed). This is fixed in V3.5.4497.
New in version 3.5:
Support for copying from pre-darwin (Sky+ and Thompson Sky+ HD) to darwin devices (all other HD boxes).
Improved support for pre-darwin devices
Ability to automatically add the full date of when the recording was created to the beginning of the synopsis (the Sky planner only displays the day)
Support for merging recordings from two or more disks or Sky+ HD boxes onto one
Better support for recovering recordings from corrupted disks
Display of Genre and Sub-Genre information for planner items
Improved diagnostics tool
Bug which caused a blue screen to appear before certain pre-darwin recordings (including recordings made on Darwin systems before they where updated)
A problem causing the buttons on the registration dialog to be pushed off the end when windows was set to High DPI
Bug causing errors if only a small amount of video data was copied to an image (the image was not being made large enough to fit the databases)
Do you have any problems with using your 2TB. I sometimes get PART REC shown in the planner, but the whole program has been recorded. I have noticed also that the picture breaks up for a split second on some recordings this is not down to the signal level as that is at 95% it only happened when the drive was changed.
thank u men good job
Did mine ages ago and works fine with no problems.
