    Heh, gotta have 10 posts to PM or Email apparently! So it'll have to be a public thanks, but well appreciated!

    The SendSpace errors looked a mite nastier than lack of use, so I'm thinking the other fallouts on shared hosting spaces may've been the cause.

    I could send ya the old post #'s but there's TONS just in this thread, having your reply here should make it as easy as it was for me to Search. Can't do that, you shouldn't have a PC much less a TiVo! LOL

    And... I'm askin! You can hit me, so fire an invite over and I'm glad to help.:up:

    Doesn't DVR upgrade or one of those other sites sell an image? Someone sells the images under Instant Cake. They always worked well in the past.

    I also need the image for my Tivo TCD649080. The hard disk failed and is clicking, so I'm unable to use other recovery options. Thanks!

    I have a Tivo XL TCD658000 -- Stuck at the Welcome! Power up / Almost There Loop.

    I just found your site and am going to try and locate the tools to image a new drive and get this thing running again.

    First thing, open up the TiVo and check the capacitors on the power supply board and plug the hard drive model number into the WD web site (I'm assuming it's a WD drive), and on the left hand side of the search results page, click the download link and then download the .iso image for the bootable cd with the WD diagnostic software (dateguard or data lifeguard or some such name) and burn it to a cd-r as an image, and then use that to boot a PC with the TiVo drive attached and run the long test.

    And go to mfslive.org and get the WinMFS program and the MFS Live cd v1.4 .iso

    Hi

    I'm looking for an image for my tivo series 2 TCD540040. I'm planning to use it with a camera, so I can record my training and make playback of some moments during the training. The problem is I got a tivo series 2 but the hard drive seems to be death. I'm stuck on the welcome screen. But I heard I have to get a special version of the image, because I won't be using the tivo with the service. Since the latest version ask for a communication every 30 days to let me use it, I'm screwed because it won't be plugged to anyway on a phone line et internet line. I just want to use it as a recorder for my trainning.

    If anybody could help me with the image or has a better idea on how i can do playback video cheap, It will be greatly appreciated.

    Thx,

    Gab

    A TCD540040 image can be found here, although a series 2 won't allow you to record without a valid sub to the TiVo service. An unsubbed Series 1 (Philips HDRxxx or Sony SVR2000) that originally shipped with software version 1.x will record without service though.

    Sorry for this other question: Do a philips hdr212 would record from a camera without having the tivo service?

    Thx!

    Yes, as long as it shipped with software version 1.x.

    Hi there everyone! Does anyone happen to have a download link to a winmfs image for a Tivo HD model# 652160?

    My Tivo HD died the other day (green screen of death) and doesn't want to come back to life. So, I am using it as an opportunity to upgrade to a larger internal drive, hopefully using WinMFS.

    However, although WinMFS lets me select the drive and shows it as a series 2/3 format, it does not let me back it up a .tbk file, complaining "not a tivo drive, backup failed".

    I was hoping that if I could get my hands on an existing .tbk image, I can work around this problem and get my Tivo up and running before the Fall season starts.

    Backup plan is to just buy a pre-formatted drive from the forum sponsor, but if I can save $150-200 by rolling my own, it would be preferred.

    Thanks!

    Thanks SBourgeo! I was actually able to find the link after some more careful searching, and also Unitron responded very quickly to a PM I sent as well. I feel a bit foolish for not finding it earlier before I posted.

    The image is downloaded and, using WinMFS, is working great on a "placeholder" 1TB drive I had lying around, which I used to make sure I could pull all this off.

    However, I wanted to use this drive failure as an opportunity to go ahead and get up to 2 gigs so I can really not have to think about storage space as the new fall season approaches. I ordered the Western Digital WD20EURS, which I saw recommended on another forum thread, and got good reviews on Amazon for working well as a DVR expander drive.

    One thing I am very unclear on, can I get this drive going with the same steps as I used in WinMFS, for my 1TB placeholder drive, or does its 2TB size mean I have to take some other additional steps for the Tivo to see all of its storage capability?

    Thanks!
