3. The TiVo Shell > 29. Mounting and Working with TiVo’s Drive Partitions

Mounting and Working with TiVo’s Drive Partitions

Before you can edit any of TiVo’s configuration files, turn on the Bash shell, copy across files, and so forth, you need to understand a little about TiVo’s drive partitions.

If you’ve performed a hard drive upgrade or simply read through Chapter 2, you probably noticed that we kept to the task at hand and never really devoted any time to what was actually on TiVo’s disks. You had your hands full—literally—already, now didn’t you?

In order to perform any of the feats in this chapter, you’ll need at least a lay of the land when it comes to your TiVo’s drives. If you’re used to Unix, this will probably seem rather familiar to you; nevertheless, a quick refresher never did anyone any harm.
