Mythtv upgrade, step 1: add the new TB disk to my β€œother” PC

This one was pretty easy. Opened the case, installed the SATA disk, plugged in the cables to the connectors et voila, done.

mythtv upgrade

juni 4, 2008

So I’m going to upgrade my mythtv setup. This will be a threefold upgrade:

  1. From Fedora Core 4 to Fedora 9
  2. From MythTV 0.20.1 to 0.22
  3. From a 500GB capacity to a 1250GB storage capacity. Actually slightly less since there needs to be a bit of space left for the OS etc.

In the process I will probably meet a few challenges πŸ˜‰ .

Since the current 500G is devided over a LVM on two SATA disks and my motherboard has no additional SATA port I’m going to do the following:

  1. add the new TB disk to my “other” PC
  2. Make that “other” PC dual boot
  3. prepare the new hard disk (i.e. basic partitioning etc)
  4. copy the relevant data (recordings and database) to the new disk
  5. swap the hard disk
  6. do a clean Fedora install
  7. install MythtTV
  8. sit back and relax πŸ˜‰
