Pvs -v
  /dev/sdb1  iSCSI_dvr  lvm2 a-   744.99G 744.99G 745.00G yQyVCe-tiS4-Ma1E-hilJ-niuG-KXL9-jkKVIk
  /dev/sdc1  iSCSI_dvr  lvm2 a-     1.36T   1.36T   1.36T PURHhY-Lo1T-5bif-HjGP-dP3o-NVTs-71ZKUm

Still baffling me is that fdisk -l shows:
Disk /dev/sdc: 1499.9 GB, 1499998453760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 182364 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdc1               1      182364  1464838798+  8e  Linux LVM

And 1499.9 GB = ~1.46 terabytes

Post the output of:
  pvs -v
