    anyone have a link to a TCD652160 image? All the previous links are dead. I have one with a lifetime subscription and bad hard drive and want to replace the HD so I can sell it on ebay. Thanks

    Yes, my fault. Model is TCD663000. Australian Tivo - HD 1TB.
    I need something to start the hard drive and then i can download the most recent version using kick starter or tivo menu.
    At the moment i only have a fresh formated disk that passes the SMART test. Nothing more than that.

    Can't help you. As I said before (in another thread), image for this model does not exist currently and Series 3/2 can only use image of the exact same model.

    So the only thing i can do is find the same model, back up its drive and upload it to mine.
    As i am not very familiar with these stuff... What the LDA Boot does ? Prepares the disk to be bootable ? And after that, why kickstart 56 doesn't work ?

    Tivo does not use the same format as your typical computer.
    You do not even need to format a hard drive to put an image on it. Format basically just prepares the drive for the specific system to use.

    What you can try is to copy a known good running image from the same model using MFSTools 3.2. WinMFS 9.3f may work, but its for Windows.

    WinMFS files are .TBK. Size varies with models and if any shows, but it starts around 200megs.
