    I have now restored the drive once more and disabled intellipark (it's a green drive). It now cycles constantly between Powering Up and Almost There.

    I would appreciate any advice.

    Thanks,
    Kev

    See if you can get it to do kickstart 58 (which will put you back into the 3 hour green screen, but maybe it'll work this time).

    Or you could try using WinMFS to run mfsinfo on it, and if it's set to boot from 2,3,4, run fix bootpage option 2, and if it's set to boot from 5,6,7, run fix bootpage option 1.

    I can't seem to get into Kickstart. The LED never changes. Now after restoring the drive again and the fixing the boot option 1, I get a grey screen after the powering up screen.

    Do you have any other spare hard drives lying around at least as big as the original TiVo drive?

    Carefully examine the motherboard to see if you might have bumped something loose without realizing it.

    Examine the power supply carefully for "capacitor disease".

    Also, when I connect the drive back to the computer and try to run Mfsinfo, it tells me it's not a TiVo drive even though I just restored and image to it.

    I looked at the power supply and connections and everything appears to be okay.

    I went ahead and fixed bootpage option 2 since Mfsinfo indicated the partition 3 was active. It now gets to the next startup screen, but now it goes back to cycling through the 2 screens. I have tried to hold pause down for kickstart, but nothing happens.

    I now got the GSOD, so I guess I should wait it out now.

    Probably so. It might work, but only if not interrupted.

    In the meantime, are you using a WinMFS image or an MFS Live image?

    If you don't already have an MFS Live v1.4 bootable cd made, go to mfslive.org and download the zip of the iso and burn yourself a copy.

    Do you know anything about using dd or dd_rescue?

    Are the terms /dev/null and /dev/zero completely foreign to you?

    The image I got was for WinMFS. I do not know anything about dd_rescue, but can do whatever it takes if I had instructions.

    The MFS Live cd boots to a Linux command line.

    What I have in mind is erasing the drive by writing zeros to it and starting over.

    That's a last resort, though, especially if you aren't familiar with that environment.

    Let's hope kickstart fixes things.

    One last comment. It keeps cycling through the 2 screens. Is this normal after the GSOD? I'm going to let it run over the next day since I won't watch it anyway.

    Are these TiVo 652160 boxes this hard? It seems a lot more difficult than it should be.

    No, they aren't that hard, but then I've never had to deal with the IntelliPark issue. The person who pointed you to an image originally got it from me so I'm wondering if you got it from my "Dropbox" link. If so, that is a WINMFS image of a virgin 160 GB drive that several other folks have used successfully. If not, I can PM you with the link to my image.

    Hi! I was searching for an image for the tivo hd and came across this thread. Can someone PM me where I can find the TCD652160 image?

    Either format for mfslive or winmfs are fine.

    Thank you so much! This will be so much better than trying to defeat bad sectors.

    I have tried and tried to get my imaged (from aymanme) to work. I let it run for 2 days and when I came back, the green light on the front panel was blinking. I booted it again and get the same cycling.

    I think it might be god if I got a different image. I'd like to get this thing running again.

    Thanks.
