    Hi windracer,

    Was wondering if you can pm me the Toshiba RS-TX20 image, if you still have it. If so, thanks in advance.

    The same version of WinMFS you have should run fine on Windows 7.

    My sis gave me an RS-TX20 with a bad hd image. It literally took years but I found an image (somewhere) & revived it. Then I got brave & upgraded the drive (just larger, no sata). That 2nd time around, I could swear that I had some kind of software (maybe command line?) that would allow me to change options. Or maybe it was a page with extra small downloads for extra features (example: An option to either display each episode separately OR put all "Seinfeld"s into a folder. example2: Option to make programs transferable from tivo to tivo)

    Now, 2/3 years later, I just went through all old hard drives and can't find a thing about tivo or rs-tx20/rs-tx60.

    Can somebody please refresh me on what I need? I have one working rs-tx20. It's the one I got when my 1st one's drive died. I could clone it. BUT It always ran slower and I always felt that it must have an older image, or less updates/features. One reason is that it displays each episode rather than folders like my old one. And it just thinks way too long!

    Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading! :D

    What version of the TiVo software is on your TX20? It m ust be pretty old if it's missing features like folders in the Now Playing List or HMO/TiVoToGo.

    My TX20 image is version 9.3.1 from 2008 and is for the stock 120gb drive. If you want me to send you a link to it, let me know.

    If you still have one of these older units around and it's still functioning (and have the technical know-how), I suggest plugging the hard drive into a PC and use WinMFS to make a backup of the software on the drive BEFORE the hard drive fails. It will make fixing the unit much easier with your own backup (using someone else's backup will make you Factory reset the entire unit). These units are now 12 years old and the hard drives in these don't last too long due to constant spinning and use!
    I got a 1TB Sata drive in mine now using an IDE to Sata converter I got off eBay for like $3 since the old one failed.
