Angry Add Disk to LVM Help!!

I recently tried to add a disk to an XFS LVM, I think it is added, but I can not see the size increase when I initiate a df command. here is some of the output.. It shows both disks both 100 gig, but only one is being used. I tried xfs_growfs /video but it does not change anything. Do I have to mount /dev/hda5 seperately???? Help!!

yes. I did not extend it to the end of the free PE. Now it works.
