    EDIT:

    Got enough free Dropbox space to put the 540 files there.

    So go here:

    It'll take forever and you have to sit through advertising, but it isn't costing either of us anything other than that.

    Don't delay, they're due to be deleted due to lack of activity, so download the one you need and then download the other one to keep it pinned in place.

    Does anyone know if the Tivo brand S2 images are compatable (will the image for a 540040 work on a 540080)?

    The image for a 540080 won't go on a 540040's original 40GB hard drive because it expects to go onto an 80GB or larger drive, but since the 540040's image expects to go onto a 40GB or larger drive, it'll go onto a 540080's original 80GB drive, and then you can run mfsadd to add another set of MFS partitions.

    However, since you can get 1TB drives for $50 (plus the price of a SATA/IDE adapter with a JMicron or Marvell chipset--go read the adapter thread

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=416883

    ), you might as well go for the extra space.


    You can't use a 240xxx image in a 540, or a 540 image in a 649, but if the first three numbers after the TCD are the same, you're probably good to go if the target drive is big enough.

    I was kind of curious about this myself. I have a TCD240 that appears to have the same software version as my TCD649. You are saying that I can't use the 40GB TCD240 image to make a drive for my 80GB TCD649 unit (not that I need or want to). I can only assume that the difference is in how the partitions are set up and not in the actual operating system. Inquiring minds want to know. As a side note, did you ever get DD-WRT firmware running in your old WRT54G router?

    If you go into system information on each TiVo, provided it's connected to the mothership recently enough to have what I suspect is the final version of the S2 software installed, you'll see that the left hand numbers are the same, but the final 3 are model specific (although apparently the TCD240xxx uses the same version as the TCD140xxx).

    I suspect the different versions of the various releases of S2 software are mostly identical except for what has to be tailored for the different motherboards. For example, a TCD540040 and a TCD540080 use exactly the same motherboard, the only difference being the hard drive size when it leaves the factory, but it's a motherboard different from the 140/240 models and both of those are different from the 649s.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "...the difference is in how the partitions are set up ..."

    As far as I know all of the Series 2s use the same partition layout where one of the MFS media partitions is physically right after the Apple Partition Map (which is partition 1) even though it retains the Series 1 numbering convention, where partitions 2, 3, and 4 are one root, boot, kernel set, and 5, 6, and 7 are the alternate set, 8 is swap and 9 is var, and 10-11 are the first MFS pair. It's just that on an S1, partition 2 physically comes right after partition 1 at the front of the drive and on an S2 or newer it's physically farther in with an MFS partition bwtween it and partition 1. That change is why you run "restore" with the -p option on S2 and newer models and do not use that option with a Series 1 drive.

    As for the router question, what little I have in the way of an organized schedule got rearranged for me by Irene (no real damage, just lots of aggravation), so I haven't gotten to it yet.

    Need an image? DVRUPGRADE has them. Used to be $20 but now they practically have a monopoly, they increased the price by 100%. And they are trying to solidify that monopoly by whatever means available. Eliminate the competition and then charge whatever you can. Images should be free from Tivo or DTV. Where are they going to be used except on their equipment that are otherwise useless when you lose a hard drive?

    Sort of. I downloaded them, put them on my HP Media smart server, got home the next day and the server had died. Luckily I think I still have them on my laptop.

    If you downloaded them you may have extended their lifespan on the SendSpace server, so perhaps you can try those links again if necessary.
