    You can use any version image for any particular model of TiVo. There are two rules that you MUST follow:

    1. The image must match the make and model of your TiVo. (Differences in hard drive size excepted. IE, you can use a HDR112 image on a HDR212.)

    2. The image must be the same version, or higher, as the version that shipped from the factory on your TiVo.

    To prevent putting too much load on the TiVo servers, it is best to restore the most recent available image.

    All

    I have succesfully used an image to restore to my Western Digital 100 gig drive!!

    I ended up using the "Phillips_HDR312_2.01" image on my HDR212.

    I dont know why that worked and the 112 and 212 images did not(i tried all 3), but right about now I could care less why.

    After I restored, i simply put the jumper setting to Master Primary, poped it in the tivo and saw it was as if it was a 30 hour HDR312. I quickly poped it back in my pc and ran the madtivo script to expand. After I put back in the tivo - Blammo! 88 hours basic, 24.5 best. Not to shabby.

    I am just completing the whole configuration process. Right now i am waiting for program data to import. I of course deleting everything in the setup once I had the Tivo running (whoevers image that was he/she liked who's line is it and star trek).

    Again all you HDR TiVo owners out there, I can confirm the "Phillips_HDR312_2.01" image works (on my 212 alteast!)

    Thanks everyone for your help!

    For those of you who keep asking me (in this thread) to PM you; No.

    The title of the this thread is "Need an image? PM me for a ftp site." That should be a clue to how this works.

    I don't read this thread very often, but PM sends me an email, so I know someone wants an image. You have to PM me, then I'll reply to your PM.

    I tried all 3 HDR Phillips( I have a 212) images on this ftp site and am having trouble.

    The 112 image restores succesfully but once pluged into tivo goes from black screen to grey "almost there" back to black screen and loops endlessly.

    The 212 image gets an error on restore (error 4 i believe)

    the only one I am able to succesfully restore was the 312 image as I stated before. But now, I am getting another issue. Intmitent audio cutting out.. I didnt have this problem before so i am hoping its the image.

    The fact that i did get the 312 to boot, etc cofirms i am doing the process correctly (the restore, right jumpers, etc)

    I just restored the 312 again and am going to see how it goes.

    Any other Phillips HDR images out there?

    Brian

    You'll need to use WinRAR (or, indeed, any RAR program) to stitch them back into one file.

    Thanks to Stanand Robert. First to Stan for getting the images up, or pointing out to all of us that they existed, and Thanks to Robert S for responding so quickly. My drive died on Saturday and by Sunday night I had my HDR212 up and running just in time for Prime Time.

    And special thanks to the person that uploaded that Series II image into the incoming directory.

    Now if they'd only approve/move it into the appropriate directory.

    Several people have asked what to use to link the image pieces back together. Most of the images are broken up into smaller pieces with WinRAR, available at: http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar300.exe
