When you say you can't read it on a pc, do you mean that the drive doesn't even show up in the BIOS/CMOS screen before any operating system is loaded, or that you can't see any of the contents trying to look at it in Windows?

I also need the image for my Tivo TCD649080. The hard disk failed and is clicking, so I'm unable to use other recovery options. Thanks!

The hard drive in my series 3 has a lot of problems and I have tried to recover it using a number of methods, to no avail. I could really use an image for my TiVo TCD648250B. Thanks!

I found an image by searching for a torrent. It is a backup of a virgin TCD648250B.

Question,

Can a WinMFS truncated backup of a configured(CC pairing, SPs, etc) TiVo be used to create a new drive that can be installed in a different, same model TiVo? I mean, will it come up at least far enough so that a C&DE can be performed?

It should boot and throw you an error 51, which means it expects to be in that model TiVo, but one with a different TiVo Service Number, or maybe it's the other way around, the motherboard expects a hard drive that's set up to work with its TSN.

Either way, it'll give you the error message and tell you it needs to spend some time fixing it.

After it does that I'm pretty sure it'll dump you at the start of Guided Setup.

All of your presets, like Season Passes, Thumbs, Cable Card pairings, etc., will likely be gone, just as if you had done a clear and delete everything.


Since you're working from a truncated backup, you don't have any recorded shows to save, but just for completeness, if one swaps hard drives from one TiVo to another of the same model, one will get the error 51, and at the end of the process the recordings, which were tied to the TSN of the unit from which the drive was removed, will not be availible to watch on the unit into which the drive was placed.

Yes. You will get error 51 until you C&DE.

just to point out what may not be obvious .. new users (less than 10 posts) CAN'T respond to PM even if you PM them first???, I had this exact issue when I first signed up and posted a request for an image.. seems a bit silly for someone to have to bump their post count up to have the ability to RESPOND to a PM..

by the way I could use a winmfs image for a series 2 Humax t800 (NO DVD) updated to the newest software, the file I got was SW version 7.2 and just hangs at almost there

Hr10-250 6.4

Hey guys, My hr10-250 bit the dust tonight. It's a back up unit that we use in our bedroom so normally it wouldn't be a big deal, but The wife and I just had a kid and my wife has been planted in the bed nursing and needs her TV. So if anyone can get me some help that would be great. Preferably 6.4 the wife likes to "accidentally" delete my stuff and I like being able to retrieve it.

Have a tcd240040 and need a stock image for it (or a TCD240080, etc). Having major problems with an upgrade I'm trying to do where it won't work with any drives other than the ones in it. Thinking maybe one of the previous upgrades damaged something...

Just found an old backup of my TCD240040. Using that worked great.

I'm looking for a truncated backup (tbk) image for a tcd240 ... hopefully version 7.3 or later.

Why? My most recent image of my lifetime 240 is at least 4 years old and winmfs is rather easy to work with. Oddly enough, my old machine has two ide drives but my current computer mother board has no ide slots.

Seriously, people, a winmfs image for the 240 would be great and super appreciated. Let me know if you can share

Thanks!

Looking for a 540040 image. I had a 40GB and 120GB drive in mine and I think the 40GB drive died (presumably, if the 120 died it'd still boot with corrupted recordings). I'd like to flash the 120 with the image. Though at this point I might have a hard time finding a motherboard with IDE connections! Would a USB to IDE adapter work for flashing it?

Curious about the legality of using torrent files to share images.

I would be willing to collect images for various models (perhaps only recent versions of the software) then wrap them into a torrent then seed it ... if TiVo wouldn't mind.

I figure that 250M (on average) for 16 models isn't too big ... and if a few others would help seed it could allow for quick downloads.

Certainly doing so might cut down on the requests for images (of which I've been guilty myself).

So, do any of you see this as problematic?
