Which upgrade method, or method(s), with what utilities/tools?
I am still stuck on the Old Software Version 11.0k-01-2-652
I Havent Gotten the Newer Version for my S3 652 Anyone know if its Available ? or even if there is one for the 652 Model?
Should i be worried?
Nothing to worry about.
It's a very slow rollout this time and it's believed it only fixes the expired cookie issue.
This could explain the slow roll out. I'm sure they don't want to be inundated with calls and I'm sure they're in no rush to fix the new OS with Tivo5 being released.
I didn't mean to alarm anyone. Just looking to see if my problems were isolated to me. They appear to be.
These drives were copied, expanded and supersized with winMFS. (Another tip of the hat to the old hands here who made that possible.) I am running an overnight diagnostic on the HDXL out of an abundance of caution, but I think the drive is fine.
The HD is running fine and is now booting up in a normal time frame from the menu. I am still getting a blue screen (instead of "starting up") on restart of both HD boxes, running 11.0k and 11.0m.
This is a new issue for me, but is clearly not caused by 11.0m. Furthermore, it's a nuisance, not a crisis, as they do start up and run. If anyone has any thoughts, let me know. Power supplies? HDMI handshake? I have the output set for 720p fixed. I am going to try to isolate the problem, as it's a burr under my saddle.
Finally, for reasons I don't fully understand, I suspect that I need to run WDIdle3.exe on the drive in the HDXL. I did not do that earlier, and this is the behavior I have seen before with some of the WD green drives that are set to park their heads to save energy.
Only a few thoughts. Wdidle3 not ran on the drive could be an issue. Perhaps a bad spot on the disk in the alternate root and kernel partitions. Might need to check for sector relocation issues. Unless a certain number of sectors being reassigned reaches a particular threshold, the drive will still pass SMART. So technically the drive passes muster but in reality it is having issues.
morac, would you (or someone) be kind enough to point me at a thread where the diagnostic screen lock up issue is discussed, or suggest some search terms so I could find a description of it? I tried to search, but ended up back here.
I discovered the issue a couple of weeks ago, I think, when I was poking around in the menus and my TiVoHD (unhacked, unexpanded) locked up. Whatever I did, I'd like to avoid doing it again.
In any case, thanks for mentioning there is a known issue. It's very annoying, but it's sort of reassuring to hear that it wasn't just me. I thought I had killed my TiVo.
(P.S. just checked my system info and 11.0m has rolled out here.)
I don't recall a thread, but the lockup occurs on the DVR Diagnostics screen if the box has been running for a long time.
Useful to know. Thanks again.
One of my TiVo HDs rebooted last night and now has the new software. I checked my other TiVo HD today and it said "Pending Restart". I manually rebooted and it also has the new software.
Still nothing new on my OLED S3.
Got my update today.
My HD got the update today.
My OLED S3 rebooted last night and woke me up. I was afraid the power supply died again. I have a 1TB with WD Green drive with the adjustment so it doesn't get stuck in a reboot cycle. No problems so far with 11.0m.
Sometimes it pays to be last in line...
I finally got it on my OLED S3.
My 2TB OLED S3 sometime in the past week got the update and seems to be working fine. Did get my first HDMI not compliant message from my TiVo that corrected itself by unplugging and plugging the HDMI cable in back of the TV.
My second S3 OLED was pending a restart last night so I went ahead and rebooted it and I checked my son's HD and it had upgraded as well at some point in the last week. Glad to see no issues with his since it was a 2TB drive upgrade.
11.0m-01-2-652 showed up on my TiVo HD with a 2 TB drive upgrade overnight. I already pulled the drive and took a truncated backup just in case.
Ah, good idea. I haven't made a truncated backup of my OLED S3 in quite a while. Time to update that image just in case.
