    No matter whether you need an MFS Live restorable image or a WinMFS restorable image, you have to show your gratitude by downloading both to help extend their keep alive date.

    My Series 2, Pioneer DVR-810H-S hard drive died. No backup :(

    I'm not sure InstantCake will work with my old pc.

    (apologies if I missed the thread that covers this)

    Can anyone point me to what my options are to get a backup image? Would appreciate any info on how to get an image ??

    If you already have InstantCake with the appropriate image, you can follow the directions in this link to copy the image to a flashdrive, boot MFSTools, and burn the image to a drive connected via a USB to IDE/SATA cable. I've done it using a laptop when IC could not recognize my DVD drive.

    Nice, I'll give that a try.

    Btw, DvrUpgrade support said it couldn't be done:

    Somewhere between page 20 and this page I've got links for a 24008A image that'll work.

    Please download both versions to extend their time on the server.

    Instant Cake will probably work better with your old PC than on a new one.

    But you can probably find another on of that same model TiVo on Craigslist for the same price as they're asking for IC now.

    MFSLive Tools + IC image worked as expected. Is there any warehousing on the Forums in case anyone else needs it?

    Even if you could store that image on this site, it (Instant Cake) is a licensed commercial product (from a TCF sponsor, no less), so it would be improper and probably copyright infringement for you to make a copy of the Instant Cake cd .iso available.

    Open an account at dropbox, and if you happen to have a working TiVo in the house, pull the drive, use the MFS Live cd v1.4 from mfslive.org (not the IC cd) to make a truncated image, give the file a .bak extension.

    Use WinMFS, also from mfslive.org, to make a truncated image, but this one gets a .tbk extension--WinMFS does that by default.

    Then upload both to your dropbox account.

    If anyone comes along looking for an image for that particular model, send them the dropbox links.

    Backing up with both programs doubles the chances of having the right version on hand no matter which program the "beg-ee" wishes to use to do the restoration.

    My long-time friend, a TCD230040 with a lifetime sub, came down with the GSOD. Could anyone out there help me with an image file?

    If you have a drive with an LBA number of at least 160086528 (that's the size of the 80GB Maxtor that's a little bigger than an 80GB WD ), you might be able to use this one

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=8707432#post8707432

    from a TCD24008A.

    Download both versions to keep them on the server longer.

    It's not impossible that the power supply has developed capacitor problems.

    Go read the wikipedia page on capacitor plague to learn how to visually spot the problem.

    Take the drive out of that TiVo, hook it to a computer, and run the drive manufacturer's diagnostics on it. If it's a Maxtor drive, use the Seagate diagnostic software.

    Scroll back, page 25, #739. I just checked links, appear to still be valid. I have used the Supafly image myself. Just remember you will have to Clear and Delete after initial setup.
