    My system now comes on and I can get through the TIVO screens.

    Each reset the Tivo says there is an issue and that I need to reset the DMR, each time I do that it cycles around to the same thing.

    Going to try and reset and clear settings and see if it will contact tivo and maybe that will help.

    unless someone has other ideas :)

    If it'll let you get far enough into the menus to do a clear and delete everything, do so.

    Started that process this morning before leaving home. Will see how it did when I get home. I guess I better find that darn phone outlet in the meantime :)

    thanks for all your help by the way.

    Orthanos, sorry i have not been able to add comments but unitron has been giving you the exact answer I would. I the image I provided for the toshiba drive everytime I used it always did the gsod then you had to do the clear and delete. If you made it that far you should be all set.

    No worries and nothing to apologize for. He certainly pointed me in the right direction and now that guided setup is done I am happy to say that my Tivo has downloaded the new channels, and recognizes my lifetime service.

    You two have been very helpful and I so appreciate it.

    Thank you both for all your help!

    But without your image my advice would only have been of theoretical interest.

    I tried theoretically recording TV shows, and backing them up to computer never seemed to work. :)

    So I have read that the image file for the (TCD748000) Premiere XL 2TB drive does not exist online at this time. Is it true that this image can't be acquired over the web at this time? My original drive was taken out and sold, so it is impossible for me to get the image from the original drive.

    Please let me know if I am (or am not) correct. Any additional info or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    John's...
    The reason no image file has been uploaded is that there is no way to create a backup for a Premiere except by copying the entire disk.

    So close,...
    I was thinking about copying mine then compressing it on the super, super compressions setting just to see how small it would be. I have two things stopping me, I don't have 2tb of space to work with and 2. my premier is filled with shows and I don't want to delete everything just to reduce the image size after compression.

    I bought my premier already upgraded so I don't have the smaller stock drive to play with.

    That's an interesting thought. I believe cloning utilities like Acronis can create a workable copy of a TiVo drive, and presumably their backup function might work to backup and restore an entire TiVo drive, with compression. But I doubt that deleting everything would reduce the size of the backup, since old video data would still be strewn throughout the drive. What would be interesting is to make a compressed backup of a virgin drive, which we hope would be largely filled with zeros, to see if that could be compressed to not much larger than a truncated backup. Not everybody has Acronis, but I believe the free TodoBackup from Easeus can do something similar.

    Philips DSR6000 3.5d image anyone? Trying to do a dd_rescue on my existing disk. :(



    [edit] Was able to get my second DSR6000 manually upgraded to 3.5d, so all set. :D

    Took me all of 20 seconds to do, myself... :), found and used it to restore a TiVo HD earlier today. Thanks for having posted those!

    Unitron or anybody that has used this image from post 851, do you know if this image for the 658 HD XL is version 11.0K? My HD XL won't update to 11.0K, so I thought I'd attempt to do it manually with this image. Not worth the risk of me messing something up if it's an older version. Thanks!

    Not sure what version that one is. The regular S3HD version posted in this thread is 9.x because it is a factory fresh copy. What version is your box now and what have you tried to get it to update? How long have you been waiting for it to update? Usually takes a few calls to Tivo to get the update (you can force these) and then you can check the System Info to see if the status is "Pending a restart". If so, you can force the restart. I just upgraded the drive in an S3HD and that is what I had to do.

    My HD XL (658) won't upgrade to 11.0k. It's stuck on 11.0j. It's been stuck on 11.0j for several months I guess. I bought this Tivo on eBay about 18 months ago. When I go into Settings and manually Connect to Tivo, it connects, downloads, and on the last step, Loading info, it says (Pending restart). I've tried manual connects and restarting dozens of times.

    Everything is working fine right now except that Video on Demand locks up pretty frequently with a grey screen, requiring a reboot. Also, a few months ago, it stopped getting guide data. I called Tivo and they wanted $200 to fix it. They also mentioned that there was a small percentage of HD XL's out there that were not updating to this 11.0K for some reason! So instead, I did a Clear and Delete Everything and it started getting guide data again, but the Video on Demand problem remained. I've got Product Lifetime on this, so I'd like to keep it working and get Video on Demand working right. I tried Kickstart codes 51,52, and 56 with no luck (I never saw the screen that is supposed to say "Installing a Service Update"). Also 54 Smart test and it passed.

    I thought I'd try my hand at WinMFS and put the image on manually.
