    Hi unitron, in your experience is it normal for shows to show an exclamation mark on a freshly upgraded 2TB drive with no shows? Have my season passes setup to keep until needed and then changed to keep until I delete.

    I assume you're talking about taking a TiVo with a new 2TB drive and no shows on it and then recording some shows and immediately getting an exclamation point in the yellow circle?

    Is this before or after setting up any season passes?

    I've never really been able to discern any rhyme or reason to the TiVo "what to keep how long" decisions.

    I've seen shows permanently deleted the next day and stuff in the Recently Deleted folder left untouched despite being months old.

    My main gripe with TiVo is not being able to set KUID as the default whenever you hit record the way you can set a default recording quality.

    Suggest you make all SPs KUID, and when setting up one-shot recordings in advance take the annoying extra steps to set Options to KUID, and when you find something you want and hit record right then before the 30 minute cache times out, go back and set it to KUID asap as well.

    You can do that while it's recording.

    there apparently are no images for the HR10-250 floating around.

    i rescued a unit from the "recycle" pile at the town dump.

    it stalls on the Powering Up screen--it doesn't appear to reboot every minute or so as i have read that other "dead" units do.

    i attached the HD to my PC and booted into Win7, but bios doesn't recognize the drive, so WINMfs (nor a low-level formatting tool, either) doesn't see the drive. the drive does spin up.

    before i spring for InstantCake, is there anything i can do to check for additional possible causes of failure? all the capacitors look OK. having said that, since the HD is profoundly dead, i think the odds of a new drive and InstantCake working are pretty good. too bad there's no "try before you buy" but there is obviously no way of policing that.

    if i do get it running, will it work with a SWM-3 dish, or do i need to resurrect my old oval 3-lnb dish?

    thanks

    Did you run WinMFS as an administrator.
    Also see if DvrBARS can back it up.

    John's...
    If the h/w doesn't see the drive, neither one of those options will help.

    Yes, that's what I was trying to say in my post.

    What I'm trying to learn from those of you with lots of experience is if there are other common failure causes for an HR10 other than bad drive and bad caps.

    If there are not other common failure reasons then I will be more tempted to spring for instantcake.

    Am i right that:

    The hr10 won't work with a SWM dish

    And

    There is no programming left on sat 110 and 119, and that the programming on 101 is SD?

    Thanks

    The HR10 will not work with a SWM dish. As far as I know, all the programming the HR10 can receive is on the 101 satellite.

    i might be wrong, but i think all the SD "cable" channels and many SD locals are on sat 101.

    lyngsat.com/packages/directvusa101.html

    other SD locals and spanish-language SD's appear to be on 119.

    lyngsat.com/packages/directvusa119.html

    current as of 7/24/13, according to the note at the bottom of the listings

    Have an old, original Premiere (TiVo Premiere HD DVR Model TCD746320) that just bit the bullet after 3 years. Out of warranty, and I've heard the fan going as well for the last few months, so that could be one more culprit to the HD finally giving a green screen of death and clicking.

    So I'm looking for an image for the TiVo Premiere HD DVR Model TCD746320. I figure I'll make a drive down to Fry's and pick up a HD. Seems like a somewhat straight forward process from DvrBARS thread... atleast I'm hoping it is.

    This is for use with the MFS Live cd v1.4


    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/49887720/648250b.bak



    and this is for use with WinMFS


    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/49887720/648250b.tbk


    but I don't remember for certain if I'd gotten it online and updated to 11.0k before making those or not, so if you're going to a drive bigger than the original, suggest you restore, do not expand, setup and test in TiVo and let it call the mothership for the latest updates (maybe you're on the list for 11.0m), and get settled down, then do your own backup with your settings, and then take it out of the TiVo back to the PC and expand.
