Have you tried divorcing your slave drive from the master with WinMFS (link)?
I have some good ol' Samsung SIR-S4080R DirecTivo systems. I had two drives in one that I wound up doing a Clear and Delete Everything on the original OEM 80gb drive.
Now the second drive will not boot and allow me to watch live tv as it fails to acquire info from the satellite.
However, the OEM cleared and deleted drive will boot and allow me to watch live tv. Unfortunately, the second drive has lots of recorded shows that I am trying top get access to again.
Can I use the working image off of the OEM drive to get the second drive working again for live tv and still have the stored programming?
Sounds like they are now divorced and I'd them to be remarried/paired with OEM being the master and the second one being the slave and still have all the current recorded programming on the slave...
What are the chances that one of those images would work with a Sony SVR-3000 to get it going again?
Short answer no, you must start over with a good drive, and don't use two drives anymore as drive space is so cheap now.
One of the S2 images would probably boot at least, but your Sony remote wouldn't work with the SVR-3k anymore.
Thanks Les. I sure appreciate your timely response.
can you look for the image in the info on the hard drive when using mfslive?
HR10 -250 image seems to be a thing of the past
Can you run WinMFS instead for that purpose?
Just select the drive, click on mfsinfo, and somewhere in there it should list the software version, and the last 3 or so digits should be the first few digits of the model number.
For instance, the Series 2 Dual Tuner (non-satellite version) is either the TCD649080 or the TCD649180, depending on original hard drive size, and the software version ends with 649.
MFS Live does have an
command, but I don't think it reveals quite as much information as the WinMFS version.
Could anyone take pity on a TiVo community old-timer who is in need of an image for his TCD648250? Started getting an S03 error on update, so as a last resort I tried a Kickstart 57 and now she's stuck in a Guided Setup loop. I already have a DropBox account so I can be of no help referral-wise but if someone could provide a link to the WinMFS image or tell me where to look I'd sure be grateful!!! All links I have found via search are dead and there are no Seeders for the Supafly option.
I can hook you up eventually.
Right now it seems that too many people were banging on my DropBox public folder, so my account is temporarily suspended.
If there's some way I could upload to your DropBox account, email me at myusernamehereonTCF at coastalnet dot com
(My PM box here at TCF is getting kind of crowded)
My Tivo Series 2 40GB HDD crashed. The model number is: TCD24004A I have the same 40G drive (almost identical as the original) that I want to use. Does anyone have an image for this? Thanks in advance!
If you can be patient and wait until access to my DropBox account is restored, I've got a 140 image that should work--the 140 and 240 basically use the same version of the software. I've also got a 24008A if you want to go to a bigger drive (it'll have to be at least slightly larger than the average 80GB drive because back then TiVo was using Maxtor drives which had a slightly higher LBA number than their Seagate and WD counterparts)
Thank you so much! You are awesome and responsive! :up:
It's all due to my boyish charm.
Did I mention how my participation here is making me wealthy beyond all my dreams?
Sent you an email regarding upload to DropBox is apparently limited to 75MB. I appreciate any assistance on my issue as soon as your account is back in service.
Let me check my "archives" I think I might have a Series 2 image that could help out that other user.
You might be able to get accounts from other file share sites.
I sent you a link via PM.
