I don't remember what size drive this came off of
but you can try it.
If LBA48 is a problem with early S2s, the way it was for S1s, maybe you could restore, do not expand, install and let update, and then expand.
You have time between now and the weekend to run the manufacturer's diagnostic software long test before putting that drive into service.
I have finally got the dreaded S03 error on my TCD658000 after I changed my zip to my new location. I copyed to HD to a new HD and still get the S03 error while trying to load the data for the new zip. I reimaged another HD with the 658000.tbk provided with winmfs, but when it finally reboots back up in the info my Tivo service number is all 0's? and in now playing it says there is a fatal hardware error on the HD and to reboot? is there something im missing that is isn't pulling my tsn? it connects to TiVo, and pulls all the other service info and still says lifetime subscription.
Having an interesting issue with my TCD5400-40
Few weeks ago it went to the welcome screen and constant recycle. I figured it was the hard drive so I pulled the drive, loaded a new drive with the 540 image and it came up fine. Walked through the setup process, all was good.
A few days later, welcome screen again and constant rebooting. Pulled the new drive, tested fine. Put the 540 image back on the drive and booted fine. This time I didn't do the auto expand, walked through the setup and everything was fine.
Again, within 48-72 hours, it is going to the welcome screen again and rebooting. Wondering if it is getting some sort of update from the mothership that is breaking things? How do I prevent it from continuing to break?
Just dropped the 540 image on the same drive again and it is back up but i fear within the next few days the same thing will happen..
nm... 4 hrs and a clear and delete solved it.... must have missed that somewhere.
Power supply? As it warms up after you turn it off to replace the drive perhaps some component is failing and it is not providing stable power.
Update: I RMA'd 2 1TB drives to WD, 1 was the 2 month old drive that was in the TCD540 and the other was a failed 1TB from the TCD652 S3 HD which lasted 2 years. Both was still under warranty with the latter expiring in a few weeks.
I just looked in the WD RMA History and they are going to send me a WD20EZRX and a WD1001FALS as replacements.
Thanks a lot for all your work here. Is there a bitcoin wallet for dvrbars donations, instead of paypal?
The WD1001FALS is a slightly older Caviar Black (no advanced format to worry about, and I think it can be jumpered down to 1.5) and will work fine in an S2, coupled with a good JMicron or Marvell chipset based adapter, but they get pretty toasty, so you might want to rig up an extra fan in there.
Any chance you can talk them into a WD20EURS instead of the ZRX?
If not, let us know how it works, or doesn't, in that S3, as it's one of the newer models that we haven't had many reports on.
I may just put these into storage and may just get a roamio. In the future I may plop the 2TB into it.
Need help in getting a S3 image for a 2 tb drive.
You need to specify which S3.
Sorry! S3 648 2 tb drive
There is no 2 TB image, just the original 250GB size, but WinMFS can expand with 11.0k/m current Tivo software.
Thanks! Winmfs said I have extra room "do i want to expand" i said yes. How long does it take to expand?
Doesn't take long to notice.
It is stuck trying to expand it?
Explain. It should only take seconds to expand and supersize.
