    Thank you, lillevig. It's great to see that tivocommunity continues to be so strong. I haven't stopped by here in about four years since i've been stuck with the directv DVR, but I'm still holding out hope that one day the new directv tivo will be available.

    Hello all,

    I cannot successfully backup either of my TCD240080 units. :-( Does anyone have an image I could restore from? Thanks in advance!

    Go back a page or 2 and find my link to a 24008A image.

    It'll probably work.

    And if you download it, it'll increase the time it stays on the server and the chances it'll still be there the next time someone needs it.

    If you have a replacement drive with an LBA number of at least 160086528 or higher (which will be some but not all 80GB drives), the 24008A image I posted a couple of pages back might work.

    It came off of a stock TiVo Maxtor 80GB drive which is a slightly larger 80GB than the 80GB Western Digital drives they used in later TiVos.

    I have two tivo Hd's one has a bad drive and I need an image, can I pull it from the other working tivo via WinMFS as a back up or is there a better way? If a fresh image from this forum is the best way then I'd like to request a link for the 652160 image TIA!!

    You can copy the image from the working TivoHD hard drive.
    When you install the new hard drive in the non-working Tivo, you will have to perform a Clear & Delete to marry the drive to the motherboard.

    Thanks! to confirm i would copy the image using WINMFS as a back up and then apply that back up to the new drive or is there a better way? I'm using a laptop with a usb to sata adapter so i can only hook up one drive at a time (unless i get another adapter possibly??)

    I will PM you with links to virgin images for both WINMFS and MFSTools. I use a USB to SATA adapter when I image my Tivo drives.

    Yep, if you can only hook up one hard drive at a time, that is the way you have to do it. First backup, then restore.

    If you can add another adapter, you should be able to do a direct copy.

    But, this is all moot if you get a virgin image from lillevig.
    With that, all you will have to do is hook up the new hard drive and do a restore.

    I've got so many adapters that I'm thinking I might not even need a hard drive anymore. If I can just them untangled.... :D

    My re image worked like a charm (thanks again Fellas)....Any use for the Old 160gb drive. WINMFS tells me it's not a TIVO drive. Can i assume it just trashed and discard it or is there anything I can do to evaluate it further. The WD diagnostics said it had bad sectors so I'm assuming it;s junk but wanted to run it by the community first.

    Since I bought a refurbed premier when this unit went down, now i have a fixed HD unit....guess I'll have to reactivate it and put it in the basement....Looks like TIVo will be getting another $10 out of me per month....

    Since you just added a Premiere to your account, you might be able to threaten to discontinue the HD and get them to offer you lifetime on it for $99.

    There's another thread or 2 around here about that.

    Did the WD software offer to fix those sectors?

    (which really means mark them as "don't use" and bring in some of the spares)

    I'll ask about the $99 Lifetime I'd jump on that in a heartbeat! I don't recall seeing the option to fix, i believe it came back as an error during one of the scans from memory it was the second one after a failed SMART scan.

    I Like lillevig's idea....Bulls-eye:D
