    Ugh, my wife and I gave her mother my old 40hr but it recently keeled over and I cannot find my small back up :(

    I have a spare 160Gig drive I was going to put in the dead 24004A unit.

    I do have an identical 24004A with a massive 500g drive, but I don't know if I can use it as a backup to restore to the 160g drive. Obviously, I just need the OS.

    But, if anyone has a lean TCD24004A image they can share, I'd think really nice thoughts about them :)

    Yes, you can use the working 500GB drive to make an image for a smaller drive. Just include the "s" option in the backup part of the operation. I have done it myself before, to an original capacity drive even.

    OK, what am I doing wrong.

    I dropped by #tivo on EFnet and the topic is:
    Welcome to the EFnet Tivo chat channel

    what is the code for requesting an image there?

    I am seeking an HDVR2 6.2a (not 6.2)

    Had I of known that getting a replacement image would be so hard for a linux device, I would have made my own backup image before buying a tivo to repair a customer's computer (customer's computer had a nearly dead drive)

    I can confirm, both FTPs and IRC are not apparently viable..

    I tried FTP first.. bad account on the first server and no response from the second...

    Next came IRC... real client and web based, both... no !image trigger... I guess there's no DCC transfers there lately?

    Having satisfied the requirements I tried the additional email address and still have no response... I am still in the IRC channels as I type this... dead....

    I'll post back if there are any changes...

    Good luck to everyone else looking for an image... I will next ask some of my geekier friends to make images of their own series 2 units to send...

    Still hopeful,
    BDP

    I've been unable to connect ot the ftp site. Is it possible the address is old, and the bot not updated yet?

    THanks,

    If someone could please PM me the FTP info or any location with a Toshiba TX-20 backup image I'd owe them a burger. Super size, even.

    My drive died this weekend and I need to replace it, but I have no backup. Thanks!

    A little birdie told me that the FTP site is out of commission and the only way to get an image now is to buy it from PTVUpgrade as part of the "Instantcake" package or a ready made upgrade drive.

    Ahhh, but you guys do have an image. What if I gave you the login to *my* FTP site and you could up it for me there? I could put some cake there for you in return! :)

    If that's possible and you have the image, please PM me and I'll give you somewhere to stick it. Errr...you know what I mean.

    dude, the instantcake images are the product of one of the sponsors of this board. it isn't cool to be trading his images.

    Oh, wait a second - were you interpreting my 'I'll put cake up there for you' joke to mean that I'd put the Instantcake stuff up to trade? Hahahaha...bad use of words, I meant it as a joke referencing Portal. I didn't mean I'd put up a pirated copy of his Instantcake software, I would never do that!

    I'll rephrase that - I meant I'll put ice cream up there for ya if you can send me a TX-20 image. ;)
