Can you send me the link by PM to download your virgin backup?
I'd send you a PM but the forum won't let me because my account is too new.

Thanks!

Hey Greg (ggieseke),

I also just had my TCD748000 hard drive fail. Would you please also send me the link via PM for the backup? Like Jerry, my account is too new to send you a PM directly.

Thanks very much! Steve

Hey Greg,

Thanks very much! I'll give it a try this weekend, and hopefully we'll be back up and running soon.

Hey Greg
Any chance you could PM me the link to the download too. My TCD748000 also has a dead drive.

TIA

Could someone send me a link to the disk image of the TCD748000? The hard drive on mine just died, and there is no way to salvage the hard drive via the copy methods. I would be so appreciative if I could get a copy of the image so that my lifetime subscription on this tivo isn't wasted.

Is it just me, or should some TiVo owners be buying new drives in preparation for what seems to be a trend of drive failures on one or two models I keep seeing failure reports on, with image requests?

Is everybody truly confirming the drive is at fault?

EDIT/ADD: This post has nothing to do with the drives listed in my signature.

Has there been any progress for support of the newer Roamio drive backup yet?

It does seem a little early for later model S4 drives to be failing and I wonder if a lot of it isn't the TiVo software on them getting scrambled, which we all know is by no means impossible.

That does happen, which is why I am suspicious about the reports.

The TiVo Service induced "Random Reboots" had people shopping for drives, just assuming their drive was failing, without stating they had made any efforts to test their drives.

OTOH, the "update borked my drive" issues of earlier times often was the result of the alternate partition becoming the active partition, and revealing there were bad sectors there, once pulled for testing with the mfg diags.

I guess it's getting to the point where some would rather buy a replacement drive, than invest the time and effort into testing the one they have, for whatever reasons. If that's what they want, we can't force them to do otherwise...

The Roamio doesn't use the same alternating partition scheme, AFAICT. But, those aren't the ones I'm seeing so many requests for here. It's the 748's that seem to be "dropping like flies"...

I'm showing 57 downloads on the 748 image since I posted it a year ago. The 746 image is at 108 for comparison. Requests do seem to have spiked a bit lately but I don't know if it's hardware related. Most of them are just people stuck in boot loop hell.

I'm working on a drive to drive copy/expansion program, but a backup to image program for Roamios isn't on my radar at all. DvrBARS can't handle anything over 2TB even with additional code to read the new headers.

You can back up your SPs and channel selections with kmttg, and disaster recovery on a Roamio is as easy as plugging in a new blank drive.

And if everyone who got an image from you donated a dollar you would have enough money to pay another year of storage.

One factor that should be considered - multiple tuner, HD capable TiVos are far more stressful on hard drives than previous models.
