    I think Spud1's problems are probably solved but in his euphoria he has forgotten to tell us.

    Oh no, my webserver has been impounded by the CIA and I'm seeing if I can get the images back off the FTP.

    Sorry you won't be able to access it until I can get this sorted.

    "As per our previous email, a bank fraud script has been found on one of the servers in our cluster. As a result, all servers are currently suspended and under police investigation. We do not have an ETA, and have no access to the servers whatsoever. The only thing I can do is release the domain names to yourselves to host your accounts someone else if you so desire.
    Please send me all of the details to make the changes to the domains"

    So it isn't only in the UK that the authorities close down the whole road for endless hours just so they can investigate one crime!

    Surely they could have simply cloned the server's contents to forensically investigate the fraud or at least allowed a clone of the server they were taking away to be created so they didn't inconvenience everyone wanting to use it.

    This all relies on the overwhelming arrogance of the Police/Security Services in believing that their investigation is always far more important than anbody else's business or activities.

    I have had a Green Screen of Death and tried a backup and restore from the disks to a new 400GB unit, to find it does not go past the Grey Powering Up Screen.

    Therefore, I need a link to an image please that would be suitable for a 400GB single drive.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm a relative newbie, having had my TiVo for about 8 months now. The disc is full and I was wondering what I need to do to back it up, and whether I can copy what's on the disc, onto a PC. Can anyone give me ay tips, via PM or otherwise?

    Thanks

    Tim

    Perhaps a read of www.steveconrad.co.uk/tivo and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tivoweb may start you off on the right lines if you want to be able to do things such as backup your Tivo and the data on it.

    You may also want to take a look at www.tivoheaven.co.uk and www.tivoland.com

    Power supply or motherboard has burned out I imagine. Doesn't sound like the hard drive.

    Sorry I didn't give all the details.

    The smoke was coming out of the drive as I was attempting to mfsbackup.

    My orig is making a nasty clunking noise and will not be recognised by the bios.

    Although you make a good point about the Power Supply unit, it is probably time for a new one!

    Thanks,
