I have a tivo HD, i moded it once with a 1TB drive, and then again with a 2TB drive. It has run very well for over a year now. Over the past few months I've noticed that it has been giving me warnings that program info is running out. I go in and check and my tivo connected successfully within about a day of this warning. That just hasn't made any sense. If it connected successfully, wouldn't it have about 2 weeks of program info on it? I rebooted the tivo once and that seemed to make the warning go away, but then in 2 weeks it came back. I checked and again said it was successful. I just ignored it, then it went away on its own. The 3rd time i checked and it said failed, so i did a manual connect. Successful again, and in a few days the warning went away. Well today it said it failed and gave an s03 error. I did some searching and found that most likely this is a hard drive issue. I "unfortunately" read that if you do a guided setup and change zipcodes this might fix it, well now i'm stuck in guided setup loop where it can't complete successfully, and if i pull the plug and reboot it goes right back to guided setup. Any way to get it to stop going to guided setup? I pulled the drive and read with dd_rescue I can copy the drive byte for byte, and its doing that right now. I bet it will take 20hours to complete. My 2nd question is, if it isn't able to recover these bad sectors that are causing the s03 error, will I just get the same errors? Is there a way for me to force tivo to reinstall the software with "kickstart"? Will I lose all of my recordings when i do get the software re-synced up? Thanks guys.
