    I am attempting to upgrade my Phillips PTV-300.. I installed two new Seagate 120Gig IDE Drives, and it starts fine, but then just "hangs-up/Locks-up". The video freezes and the Remote Control fails to do anything. This unit originally had a 60Gig upgrade from TiVo, but I just can't seem to get it to transfer correctly to the two new HD's. I used WinMFS and the older MFS version 3?.

    Does anyone have an idea? I have an old InstantCake {2002} for my Sony SVR-2000 - will that work. Do I need/can some one send me an image just for the PTV-300? Or is shelling out another $40 for another InstantCake my only option?

    Thanks for any assistance anyone can provide

    Give up and use those two drives in a computer instead.

    Series 1s are picky about which drives they'll work with.

    Apparently they don't like Western Digital Caviar Blues, even SATA ones with the Marvell chipset SATA/IDE adapters that are otherwise the only ones that work in a Series 1.

    And apparently they don't like matched pairs of Seagates, either.

    I tried the same thing with 2 of the same model 160GB Seagate drives (IDE/PATA). And yes, I ran copykern so that I could use drives larger than 137GB.

    Wouldn't work.

    I could use either one of the Seagates by itself, it worked fine.

    I could use either one of the Seagates as either the master or slave and a different brand drive as the other drive and it worked fine.

    Together, there was something about them together that the ultra-picky Series 1s just don't like.


    You can get a 1TB drive for $50 now, and the necessary SATA/IDE adapter for under $30, maybe well under if you look hard enough.

    Go read the adapter thread

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


    Go here

    http://www.dvrupgrade.com/dvr/stores/1/downloads/BOOTCD/ptvlba48-4.04.iso.zip


    to get the image for a cd you can burn and use to run copykern.

    If that link doesn't work anymore, go here


    http://www.dvrupgrade.com/dvr/stores/1/lba48_4.04_license.cfm


    Don't use it for backing up and restoring images, just for copykern.

    First you restore the image to the new drive with some other software, then you boot with that cd, then you mount that cd


    mount -t iso9660 /dev/"whatever hdx or sdx you booted the PTV cd in" /cdrom


    (I guess that's so the OS that loaded off of the cd can find something on the cd, like maybe copykern itself, or some part of it.)


    Then you type copykern and follow the instructions.

    Then you boot with the MFS Live v1.4 cd and run mfsadd to use the full drive.



    For backing up and restoring, go to mfslive.org and download the image for the MFS Live v1.4 cd, and use it instead of any older MFS handling software.

    WinMFS only works with backup images made with WinMFS, and nothing else works with those images, but MFS Live will work with backup images made by earlier versions and by MFS Tools.

    When you use the

    restore

    command on the MFS Live cd, just use the -s option to set the swap partition size, and instead of

    -xzpi

    just use -i

    Do not use -p on a Series 1. It puts a Series 2 and later partition layout on the hard drive that confuses an S1.

    -x will be handled later by mfsadd



    If I recall correctly from experiments I tried a while back, using the Sony image in the Philips (or maybe it was the other way around) would work to begin with, but it only responded to the remote it expected, so either I had to use the Sony remote with the Philips TiVo or the Philips remote with the Sony TiVo.

    Others here and elsewhere have said that using the "other" brand's S1 image will eventually cause it to bork itself when it gets info or updates from the mothership and becomes hopelessly confused and schizo.

    Whether it's Aussie or not shouldn't make a difference.

    Just to be clear, I'm looking for an image I can restore using WinMFS. Other people have managed to get hold of this image on this board in the last few weeks, so it's out there somewhere...

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you physically unable to run MFS Live? Like as in don't have a PC and have to run WinMFS under some sort of emulation on a Mac?

    'Cause if you can get an image which was made with MFS Live, you can use MFS Live to restore that image to the new drive you're going to be using, then use WinMFS to make a WinMFS compatible backup from that drive and then use WinMFS to write that image to the new drive.

    its TCD663160 and no one has the image, even to buy...

    although when i just restarted it then it came up with a green screen and said that my dvr has serious issues and it is going to atempt to fix and should take around 3 hours, i won't hold my breath. A image would be better then i can just transfer to a new drive.. presto.

    So is it green screening on the original drive, or are you trying an image for the US version of the HD?

    If the latter, and it doesn't heal itself, maybe kickstart 56

    http://www.weaknees.com/tivo-kickstart-codes.php

    will get what you need written to the drive.

    Or maybe kickstart 0 or 1

    I get confused enough going trans-Atlantic and talking about UK S1s, trans-Pacific really leaves me in reduced to guessing territory.

    Edit: BTW, you're welcome for the link.

    Since someone was kind enough to let me send them a Dropbox invite which they used to open a free account, we both got extra free space, so I'm now offering these images where they won't age off.

    If you don't have a Dropbox account already, I could use more free space, hint, hint.

    You don't need an account to download from mine, however.

    I think the more they're downloaded, the longer they get left on the server.

    No doubt it'll take forever and you'll have to watch some ads, but it's free, so...
