    Need a image myself.
    Does anyone have one hosted? Trying to breath some life into this oversized paperweight that has been stacking up dust for over a year.

    I tried emailing you a few days ago, but I received a failure at your yahoo address posted above. If you are still checking this board, please provide a working address.

    It would be nice if the people I've uploaded images for would "pay it forward" and start doing it for others.

    The file, rstx160.tbk is on my site, It's 289,977 KB and is a WinMFS image of a 160 GB hard drive for the Toshiba RS-TX20.

    http://secret.kasmiur.net/rstx160.tbk

    if anyone needs one to get their unit back up.

    Do you mean the TX60? Because the TX20 has a 120gb drive (and a different TSN) so if that is a TX60 image it won't work on a TX20. If it actually is a TX20 image, just on a 160gb drive, then folks will need at least a 160gb drive to use it.

    Just wanted to point that out ...

    It is the image of a TX20 on a 160 GB hard drive so anyone who uses it will need at least a 160 GB hard drive. I originally made an image of the OEM 120 GB hard drive and then restored and expanded it to a new 160 GB hard drive. I then cleaned up the 160 GB hard drive by deleting all the non-existent program items from the "Now Playing" menu. This is the backup of that 160 GB drive.

    I have a Toshiba RS-TX20 with a original Maxtor Drive that is giving me the green screen of death. Got a new WD 500GB Green AV drive (Bare Sata with "approved adaptor") and am trying to load it with a 565.TBK file one of our fellow members hooked me up with. WinMFS finds my drive but When I try to restore it tells me the file is not valid backup file. Tried to backup my damaged original and get "not a tivo drive" Played with Winlive some as well with no luck but not sure if the drive needs to be formated etc. Anybody have a virgin image? Recomendations? Am I doing something wrong?
    So annoyed!

    WOW,
    Found a image thanks to a fellow member, put the image on a new 500Gig WD green av sata drive with IDE adapter ( aparently approved for tivo - supposed to be good ).
    Drive will not start tivo. In frustration burned new image over old original and damaged HD which until now looped through green screen of Death, and now it will boot. Although it leads me to a TIVO screen which tells me there is a "Hardware problem" and I cannot record TV or watch recorded tv! ( SO THE FILE HAS TO BE GOOD RIGHT)

    SO anybody have any ideas why I can't get the new drive to run?

    So the unit boots and you can navigate the TiVo menus? Normally after restoring drive using an image from another box, you need to run a Clear & Delete Everything to get it working properly.

    Thanks will give it a try. Old drive clicks like a SOB so it is surely temperary. Any ideas why the new drive won't work? Loaded it with same file. Used the sata IDE adapter that aparently is good with TIVO (except about two or three specific units) and a usb to IDE adaptor. Didn't wan't to open my box. SATA has no Master or slave but the adaptor adds it. (Master)
    Any thoughs why i am struggling? Do you think that loading through the adapters could be an issue?

    My TX20 HD just died, and I am wondering if you still have the Boot image ?

    I would gladly pay for burning a DVD and postage.

    Thanks !
