Auto-install on 120 GB HD and worked flawlessly out of box. This setup is almost silent with only the on-board northbridge fan making noticeable noise. Did the following outside the scope of a standard auto-install:

1. I used gparted (apt-get install gparted) to format the second 1 TB hard drive to XFS. (sdb1)
2. Edited the fstab to make the second hard drive /myth and the original /myth2.
3. Rebooted machine (You can skip rebooting running mount -a)
4. Copied the standard files / directories from /myth2 to /myth directory. (cp -pr /myth2/* /myth).
5. Used gparted again for format /myth2 as XFS (This was /sda3 on my system)
6. Created a simple tv directory on /myth2 and set the permissions of the tv directory as 775 and changed owner to mythtv:mythtv (cmod 775 tv / chown mythtv:mythtv tv).
7. Went into the mythtv-setup (Alt-2 / Alt-S) and set up the directory for /myth2/tv in the storage groups.
8. Started up the backend / frontend(Alt-3 / Alt-M) and everything works!

The final step I did was migrate my recordings / recording database to the new R5.5 machine. The steps I used can be viewed here: ... 522#113522
