    Big time.

    Both the Series 2s and the 3 different model Series 3s suffer from "capacitor plague".

    Funny thing is, the last of the S2s, the first dual tuner model, seems far less affected than the models before and after.

    Can anyone help me out? My TCD746320 just bit the dust after a power outage and I'm looking for an image. Thanks in advance!

    If you had a UPS on the Tivo(s), then you would not have any problems.

    You would need to use DVRBars for Premieres (for backup and restore), and you can use WinMFS or MFSTools to expand and supersize.

    Today, I had a 40 min. outage and my 2 Tivos, a S3 and S2, were still running.

    Yeah, hindsight... unfortunately the drive is unreadable when connected to a USB/SATA bridge and what I've seen from fsck is telling me it's not going to be recoverable. Sorry if it's uncouth but I've seen a few posted here on prior pages so I thought I would ask.

    Under Windows Disk Manager, it would not be able to see the drive contents either. Do not use any disk manager either from windows or apple to either try to read or format the Tivo drive.

    Tivo uses a type of Apple partitions. There are no visible files to copy. WinMFS will be able to read and tell you the disk info with partitions, there are about 15 or 16.

    He needs to use JMFS to expand and supersize, not WinMFS or MFSLive.

    Thanks for the info, but the drive itself is unreadable and isn't mounting (mac os x, xterm, mount). I am familiar with the hard drive recovery process and like I said, it's not looking good. I think the controller might have died - I have a replacement drive already I just need to load it up with the "right stuff".

    From the DvrBARS post you linked:

    There is a DvrBARS created image available for your model TiVo. You need to acquire a new drive and the image. Hopefully ggiesake will inform you how to acquire it. You can then use DvrBARS to restore the image to a new drive and JMFS to expand and supersize.

    threedeet,

    I sent you a PM with the image. Use DvrBARS to restore it to the new drive, then use jmfs to expand it.

    Once the drive is back in your TiVo you will also have to run C&DE to "marry" it to your motherboard. Good luck.

    There are no images available for Premieres using WinMFS, MFSLive or JMFS. JMFS is a drive to drive copy utility.

    There is now another utility that would do backup and restore but not drive to drive copy, called DVRBars.

    An AV drive is recommended because of all the read/write activity, I would say Tivo gets more activity than a PC. You would also need one rated for 24/7/365 usage.

    The only thing you can use to restore it to a new drive is DvrBARS.

    Can someone help me help my father out with an image for his old HDR112 ?

    He has a Tivo HD which he uses and also an older HDR112 Lifetime for the time they need 3 channels to record at once, and his old hard drive died...

    Can someone help make our fathers day even more special with the HDR112 image ??

    Thanks in advance!

    Didn't see that you had gotten any response. I have sent you a PM with a link to an image.
