    Hi there,

    I have a working TCD240XXX image, I'm wondering if this image will work on a TCD140XXX TiVo?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    For using InstantCake, that answer would be no.

    Does that rule extend to other methods? Not sure.

    It might work. No promises though. You would have to try it. In general, the images do not work across versions. However, my 240 has 140 software on it. Look at the last three digits of the software version. This software version was supplied by TiVo as part of their normal release schedule. I know it works. My box used to have -240 software, but it changed somewhere in the 7.1/7.2 range.

    The 'verse

    Yes, it will work, if the image is of v7.1 or later. The 240 and 140 TiVos both use the same software now, but the older versions are different and not interchangable.
