    My Tivo HD TCD652160 died after a power black out. It just keep rebooting itself. I took the hard drive out, I can't even read the hard drive on a pc. I need a TCD652160 image to swap hard drive. Can anyone point me to a free image download site? Thanks in advance.

    When you say you can't read it on a pc, do you mean that the drive doesn't even show up in the BIOS/CMOS screen before any operating system is loaded, or that you can't see any of the contents trying to look at it in Windows?

    I also need the image for my Tivo TCD649080. The hard disk failed and is clicking, so I'm unable to use other recovery options. Thanks!

    The hard drive in my series 3 has a lot of problems and I have tried to recover it using a number of methods, to no avail. I could really use an image for my TiVo TCD648250B. Thanks!

    I found an image by searching for a torrent. It is a backup of a virgin TCD648250B.

    John's...
    Question,

    Can a WinMFS truncated backup of a configured(CC pairing, SPs, etc) TiVo be used to create a new drive that can be installed in a different, same model TiVo? I mean, will it come up at least far enough so that a C&DE can be performed?

    It should boot and throw you an error 51, which means it expects to be in that model TiVo, but one with a different TiVo Service Number, or maybe it's the other way around, the motherboard expects a hard drive that's set up to work with its TSN.

    Either way, it'll give you the error message and tell you it needs to spend some time fixing it.

    After it does that I'm pretty sure it'll dump you at the start of Guided Setup.

    All of your presets, like Season Passes, Thumbs, Cable Card pairings, etc., will likely be gone, just as if you had done a clear and delete everything.


    Since you're working from a truncated backup, you don't have any recorded shows to save, but just for completeness, if one swaps hard drives from one TiVo to another of the same model, one will get the error 51, and at the end of the process the recordings, which were tied to the TSN of the unit from which the drive was removed, will not be availible to watch on the unit into which the drive was placed.

    Yes. You will get error 51 until you C&DE.
