Yes, DVRUpgrade.com has InstantCake images for both of those TiVo's. If all you want to do is get them up and running (possibly with larger drives) then that is what you need.
Sorry, my mistake... I'm not a gamer and didn't get the reference. I don't have a TX-20 image.
I was hoping someone out of the kindness of their heart would provide me with a stock v1.3 image for my Sony SVR-2000. My Tivo has been sitting in a closet collecting dust for almost a year now. I had originally bought it as an open item from Circuit City. I had gradeur intentions of hacking and converting it into a glorified VCR. Need I say more. My futile attempts failed and a gave up for some time.
Now I understand DVRUpgrades.com provides Tivo images but unfortunately I do not believe they'll provide me with a Series 1 version otherthan 3.0. I had read that a Series 1 would allow me to use the tivo as a basic recording device which is what I hoping to use it for. Thank you in advance.
You don't need 1.3. 3.0 will work fine. You may need to get TiVo to set the "can record" flag though, if your unit is one of the older ones eligible for that state. You can send a PM to tivojerry, with the TSN of the unit, explaining what you want.
Since TivoJerry is out on vacation until 9/9 and is consequently not accepting PMs, I gave Tivo Support a call. Regrettably the Tivo support representative I spoke with said I was not eligible and stated that I would need to subscribe to get the recording functionality I was looking for. Interestingly enough he did not even want to look up my TSN to validate eligibility.
On a related note he did read from one of their internal incident codes (14-29-02) which clearly stated that only Tivo Series 1 devices manufactured on or before October 2001 are eligible for the "can record" flag. Since my Tivo was built in December 2001, I cannot leverage the option you provided.
With that being said I am hoping someone could review my orginal request and help me locate a stock v1.3 image for an SVR-2000. Thank you again for your assistance!
1.3 software will not help you. It will not make your TiVo record without sub, nor make TiVo think it is supposed to be.
Unfortunately, you have one of the units that is not eligible to record without sub, and we don't talk of getting around subscribing, for units such as yours that need it to work.
looking for an image for a hr10-250, hard drive is dead.Thanks in advance
does anyone still have an image for toshiba rs-tx20? thanks!
I'm looking for an image for a DRT800. I bought it cheap on ebay because it needs a hard drive.
I am considering InstantCake. I don't have any problem spending $20, but I'm not sure what I'm getting for it. I don't need an auto-installer. What I would like is a raw untampered with image. Has the InstantCake image been modified or is it a stock virgin image?
thanks for any help.

thanks a lot. Dan
Patience is a virtue...
My series 3 recently started doing the evil loop of death. I was hoping to find a stock image to place onto a blank hard drive to get it working again. Is the efnet portal still working or will I need to buy instantcake (I'd gladly pay $10 to get the image, but $20 seems a little steep when I do not even need the installer, I can do it myself with the free tools available to the community)
You should consider removing the drive and running diagnostics on it. That will ensure you identify the problem before spending any money (either on InstantCake or a new drive) unnecessarily.
I don't think Lou is charging extra for the installer. I suspect $20 is the minimum price that Lou feels is enough to cover credit card (paypal) charges, marketing expenses (board sponsorship), server costs while leaving a few dollars of profit. I don't know if he pays tivo a licensing fee per download.
Spend a few dollars to get immediate access to a clean image or take the time to find an image on the web.
