    It's my understanding several people on here posess a copy of the 2TB "Broflovski" / Hybrid TiVo HD Image. I am asking for you to share it with me. Pretty Please?

    I have spent months trying to get a hold of anything that would let me use the full capacity of the 2TB drives I bought for my TiVo HD (TCD652160) units. I consider this a last-resort.

    I already spent my money on WD20EADS drives, which are already in-use and working perfectly (except that I'm only able to use half of the capacity). There's no point in telling me about dvr_dude on eBay, or pointing me to any of the web shops selling pre-imaged drives, as I already have the drives I bought, which were purchased BEFORE any of these options were available (I was OK with 1/2 capacity at the time, given the price I got on the drives). I already tried the efnet/ftp route, but that did not provide anything that addresses the >1TB issue.

    I promise to abide by the author's wishes that the image not be made publicly accessable (keeping it off all the public file-sharing sites that I have been searching for it on, etc.)

    Any responses, whether yay or nay, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Fios DVR capacity finally got the best of me and I picked up a TiVo HD. It's been quite a while since I have been on here and I am reading through threads getting myself back up to date (I am so happy to be back using a TiVo again).

    Since I am waiting for the cable card of course I thought I should be gathering information on upgrading the unit to a larger drive. I have a 2TB drive that would be perfect but then I found out about the inability to address all of the space on it. I then read about 2TB Broflovski TiVo HD Image which I see solved the problem but it seems this image is not easy to find. If anyone would be kind enough to PM me with a copy of the image I would greatly appreciate it.

    If you do get you hands on it, please consider passing it along. So, I can stop begging for it.

    I'm still patiently waiting, myself. I think that's part of the deal. I made the mistake of "thread-crapping", (asking for it in threads not devoted specifically to requesting images). Which pissed off some people around here, so please be careful to NOT repeat my mistake.

    Any ideas, if I get it offered-up to me, how to transfer the file? It will be too large to email. It can't be linked to in a public forum, or via file-sharing network/site, or via a public FTP server. I wish to respect the wishes of the author and keep it out of the public domain, and only available to those who request it, only as long as they agree to the same terms. The author wants it to be shared, but doesn't want it winding up where just anybody can get it. The author, himself, doesn't have the time to devote to distributing it. But, has asked that those who do have it SHARE IT, as long as those who get it agree to the aformentioned terms.

    I also would rather have the above mentioned image, i Agree to the above terms.

    One 2TB drive is less likely to fail than 2 drives adding up to 1.25 on my original series 3 HDs

    This is only my 2nd post!

    Does the above mentioned image work with the first Series 3s? the good ones with the OLED display, THX and 250 gig drive.

    I have a premiere XL with a WD MY DVR expander, two original series 3 with hitachi ESATA 1TB drives and apricorn cases. a series 2 with lifetime and an 80 gig drive. that needs expanding for sure.

    the series 1 philips and series two toshiba are out of service because they are obsolete...or are they?

    To the best of my knowledge, it doesn't work with the Original "Series 3" TiVos. The Broflovski / Hybrid image, to the best of my knowlege, uses some parts of the HD XL (which supports 2TB drives) image to allow the TiVo HD to use the full capacity.

    The image only works (that i know of) with the TiVo-HD, if you get a TiVo-HDXL you can use a full 2Tb drive in that unit using the normal tools.

    My very first TiVo (TiVo HD) is stuck in a reboot loop after a power surge. It looks to just be the hard drive, so I'd like to request a clean up-to-date image if possible. Thanks!

    Well I need a TCD1400060 Image to do a repair.

    New plan, well I will repair but this will go to my Aunt which lived with me, has been in a Old folks home (start of Alzheimer)for around 2 years now. She will be getting a new TV too.

    She has done good by her nephews which she took out of foster care.

    I will most likely get instant cake so I can fix any issues later.

    The hard drive in one of my TiVo Series 2 Dual Turner just died. I had a second one, but while attempting to copy the working drive, it died on me too. I am now in need of a image for these TiVos. Thanks in advance.
