    I'm sorry about that, but you didn't respond to the private message that I sent yesterday (in which I asked when it would be available). Had I known that its release was imminent, I'd have waited.

    That is because I was working on it... but that's OK, you shouldn't be sorry. The guy who sold you the image should be, though...

    Thx. I made some minor changes to the scripts and have not done any release notes for it yet but it is on the site.

    1) swap space is 128MB (can't fit anything bigger on a 1TB drive) - no real benefit for a larger swap anyway

    2) tested with a 1.5TB seagate barracuda

    3) dual drive option removed (not sure why i did that - might have to change it back - i'm just not a big fan of dual-drive configurations, i guess) -- just put it back...

    I encountered this issue when testing the backup image with a 1TB drive (before removing my WD20EVDS from its antistatic bag); when I attempted to set the swap file to sizes exceeding 128MB, WinMFS reported an insufficient number of sectors.

    My understanding was that the optimal swap file size was ½ megabye per gigabyte of drive capacity (e.g. 256MB for a 500GB drive, 512MB for a 1TB drive, et cetera). So I allotted 1024MB (1GB) for my 2TB drive.

    Is this no longer significant?

    Not sure where that data comes from but it has always been my position that it does not matter. In traditional computing environments, swap space is a function of system memory, not hard drive space. Over the years, some have argued that increasing swap space gives the TiVo OS more headroom to work within when completing functions like 'mfsassert' (ie when recovering from a green screen), but since situations like that are symptomatic of other problems (ie defective drives), there has never been value in increasing swap file size given the underlying problem.

    Hi,
    I need a Tivo image Toshiba RS TX60. I believe they are the same as the TX20s. I have seen FTP sites with many models, but not this. My current drive stutters, but is recognized by tivo. When I plug it into my sole IDE channel, it shows as a 163Gig drive, but according to winmfs, "not a tivo drive", so it can't be imaged. I tried master, slave and many jump pin settings. No Go.It also won't mount in MFSLive or MFStools. Weird huh? Then when I put it back in the tivo, it works! I am waiting for a IDE/USB docking station to arrive, but my expectations are low.
    Please help we find an image. I know i can pay $20, but maybe someone can help me.
    Thanks Kindly

    My first Tivo now fails to load up. It is stuck on the Wait a moment screen. I hear the hard drive spin up, click, spin up, click, ... spin down, wait, spin up, click. and then silence. I'm assuming the hard drive crashed. I haven't removed the hard drive yet or put it in a PC. I would like to just replace the hard drive as it is obviously very old. It sounds like the biggest I can get is an EIDE 160 gb. But, how can I use some of the tools to get the new hard drive booted up. I need absolutely no data off the existing drive, just need to get the new hard drive to load. I will try to use the tools to get my existing disc image off, but I am guessing a clean image might be needed if the hard drive won't load up. Any advice on where to find an image and what tools to use? I was going to go off this guide hxxp://tivo.upgrade-instructions.com/step1.php

    If you receive no replies to your requests, you can always get Instantcake for your machine from www.DVRupgrade.com. The software is cheap,works great, and can handle up to 750 Gb IDE drives (single or dual). I have used it for over seven years with no problems. For only $20.00 its a great buy! :)

    I have only used IDE drives and have no knowledge of SATA or ESATA drives. I only comment on what I have tried. :)

    Yeah, from my recent reading over at Upgrade it seems you CAN use the terrabyte SATA drives in the Series 2 D-TiVos (mine is DSR7000, 6.2 release) with an IDE-to-SATA adapter card costing only $8.

    My concern though . . . just how slow are these older machines at reading a long file list on these giant drives?

    My DSR7000 reads my 750GB PATA file list just fine. No noticeable delay when going to the NPL.
