    My guess is yes, you can do that. I've never used an 810H though.

    I have images for both Pioneer TiVos, created with WinMFS from mfslive.org. But I'm not at my home computer right now, which has those images. I can send you a link when I get home later tonight.

    Send me a PM to remind me to send you the images. I'll need your email address so I can send you a link.

    Not sure what you mean by cloning. Do you want an exact bit for bit copy? or do you want to copy the TiVo software to a new drive and expand it to use the entire hard drive (HDD)?

    If you want to do a bit for bit copy, then you need to use dd_rescue. This utility should be on an current mfs boot CD. Check out the MFSLive boot cd for the latest mfs tools.

    If you want to do a TiVo software copy and expand, then you need either a mfs boot CD or WinMFS. Again, check out mfslive.org for the latest tools and tricks to update your TiVo, and to bring it back to life from a HDD failure.

    Good luck,

    Well, after being away, I found my TX-20 seems to have tried to reboot itself unsuccessfully, and now it's stuck with the "Welcome" message on the display, and with the drive making a repetitive clicking sound. I guess the average life of the OE drives is about four years.

    I must have angered the CE gods, because my TV just croaked as well. Ugh.

    If any kind soul out there can supply an image, it would be most appreciated. I already have some spare IDE drives and don't want to sink a lot of $ into an obsolete, albeit still useful box.

    TIA.

    I have the same problem, my TX20's hard drive started acting up so I shut it down and bought a new hard drive. Even though the old hard drive imaged over alright, the new drive won't boot either, so I think the old drive just created a bad image.

    If anyone has this image and would be willing to share, I would be deeply greatfull. I know I can get Instantcake, but with that $20 and the hard drive, I am almost up to a new Tivo in cost.

    Hi,
    I cross posted this with "dont' PM me", but as this is a hardware specific forum I though this would be appropriate.
    I need a Tivo image Toshiba RS TX60. I read they are the same as the TX20s. I have seen FTP sites with many models, but not this. My current drive stutters, but is recognized by tivo. When I plug it into my sole IDE channel, it shows as a 163Gig drive, but according to winmfs, "not a tivo drive", so it can't be imaged. I tried master, slave and many jump pin settings. No go.It also won't mount in MFSLive or MFStools. Weird huh? Then when I put it back in the tivo, it works! I am waiting for a IDE/USB docking station to arrive, but my expectations are low.
    Please help we find an image. I know i can pay $20, but maybe someone can help me.
    Thanks Kindly
    -RaffiTaffy

    My first image was corrupt, but I recently was able to make a successful image after using dd_rescue. ( see details at http://mfslive.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1299&p=6030#p6220 ) For those looking for an image, I don't have any way to host it online so it can be downloaded. Can any of you host it or do any of you know of any free services that let you send a file that is close to 300 MB? Whale mail and you send it now require a pay account for files greater than 100 MB.

    Megaupload has a 500MB upload limit, but limits free users to 250MB per download, so the file would have to be split.

    I've never used these, but they have upload limits in the GB range.

    File Savr

    File Drop

    Thanks for sticking this out. This section is dead; I think everyone has moved on to HD and left these units behind.

    I've had a heck of a time getting this to tirhoads. None of the free services worked and I've wasted a lot of time. I finally uploaded it to his home server. I'm willing to do that for you or to a server you give me access to, but I'm done with the free services. Otherwise, now that tirhoads has it, see if he can find a way to get it to you.

    I was going to verify tonight that the image from tahoejoe came through OK (thank you so much:up::up::up:) so that you don't waste your time. If it is good, I can PM you with my FTP server to download it.

    Thank you both for your efforts.

    I have a 250MB limit on my personal FTP space, otherwise I wouldn't have suggested the host services at all.

    I don't want anything, but reading through this thread I DO want to say thank you to WR for supplying disc images to so many people.

    Folks like WR make the Tivo what it is, pure and simple.

    Best,

    Thanks for the kind words. :eek: There are a lot of other people who hang out in here too, though (you know who you are!).

    I loved my TX20 while I had it, and it's still going strong working for my parents. I should have kept that image. Hopefully someone still has it and can pay-it-forward. :cool:

    Windracer,

    I'm in a similar situation --- TX20 is starting to get "squirrely", and I'd love to burn a fresh image if I could get the file. I'd appreciate any help.....

    Thanks!

    If anyone still wants an image, I have one, but I probably need someone to host it. I've been told that the free server system I uploaded it to is not the most reliable. If someone wants to give that server a try, PM me.

    Do you still have an image you could upload to my server?

    Also do you have a link on instructions on how to put an image on the Tivo? I've seen instructions on how to put the backup on, but if I download your image how do I restore that on my Tivo?

    I can't PM you since I dont have 5 posts.

    Maybe you can email me at jzanitro @ yahoo dot com
