    The iOS TiVo app issue I mentioned immediately above was likely some kind of a bug. It is now displaying the correct percentage of space left after I updated to the latest version of TiVo app.

    Sorry for bumping a pretty old thread, but this is the closest thread I could find to what I want to do.

    I have a friend of mine who bought into Tivo based on my recommendation. He picked up a couple of Premiers. One of the hard drives just failed this week. I want to get it back up and running for him with a larger drive.

    The model number of the dead Premier is TCD746320. I have a 3TB WD30EZRX drive here right now. It's running through its extended test, and I'll be modifying the WDIDLE tomorrow morning.

    My question is: Is there a 746xxx image someone can supply me such that I can use JMFS and DVRBars to get him the full 3TB of space on his TCD 746320 Premiere? I'm hoping to bring the HD to his house with the ready to rock image already in place on the HD. Is that a feasible goal? And any pointers to making it happen would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance. PM Inbox cleared!

    Look at the 4TB DIY thread. The new procedure is pretty much the same just with a 3TB drive. Go to the DvrBARS thread and pitch for an image there. The image you get will need to be updated to at least version 20.3.8 for the TiVo to recognize a 3TB drive or larger.
