    No - this thread itself is borderline!

    TiVo have specifically requested that they do not want any promotion of their software being available to download.

    Would very much appreciate it if someone could PM a link me as I need to download a 2.5.5 image as my A drive is shot (it won't back up - curses Maxtor!) and my only 2.5.5 image (from ages ago) doesn't seem to want to restore.

    :(

    The linux image "byteswaps" primary slave, secondary master+slave but NOT primary master. So you can't mount a drive on primary master (hda). If you swap the drives around so that the drive is hdb or one of the others it should work. HTH!

    Hi,
    My 120gb Tivo has died, the drive has failed the Maxtor powermax tests and Maxtor will send out a new one - no problem there, but I did not keep a backup. I did keep the original tivo drives but these got swapped to get a friends DOA Tivo going. :(
    I'm sure that some one had a image availble via FTP. Can anyone help me out.?

    I know that direct links cannot be posted here but If someone could send me a link by pm ;)

    TIA

    Mark

    Thanks to all that contacted me - I now have a source for a backup.

    Sorry for starting a new thread - I did search but found nothing :(

    Looking forward to having my tivo back.

    If someone could PM me I would also be grateful. My Maxtors are about to die. :(

    If you PM me this time I promise I will pass on to other requests in future...

    Thanks in advance

    My tivo was perfectly happy with a 120G disk... why did I ever try to upgrade it more...?

    Anyway, my hd is screwed. Could someone please PM me to help me get an image.

    Many thanks

    Would anyone be kind enough to point me to a website or an ftp site where I could download an image for a UK Tivo version 2.5.5? My hard disk has failed and I do not have a backup.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Hmm, with so many requests, I wonder if anyone still reads this thread and assists.

    Me places my faith in fellow tech heads to prevail.

    (By the way if anyone is still wondering, this is a request for a an image location ;-)


    Thanks in advance
    Dave.

    I think people do read it and assist, just that they don't make unecessary posts in this thread to indicate they are in fact assisting. :)

    I need to create a replacement pair of disks for my dead TiVo. Lots of clicking noises ! Could someone PM me with the possible location of an image, in the unlikely event that such an image is available of course ;)

    My thanks to all.

    With such a loyal and commited fan base I'm still puzzled that TiVo is unable to develop the market sufficiently, to the point that it actually gives up. Its a top product and probably the most innovative thing I've ever bought ! I dont even begrudge paying the initial asking price !

    I'm not aware that TiVo have given up. It was Thomson who gave up, and I still believe that TiVo would support any new manufacturer who wished to invest in the UK market.
