    Hi, I need to repair my broken 40GB UK Tivo. I've got a replacement Samsung 1TB drive so could someone kindly PM me with a link to a 2.5.5 image suitable for a large drive upgrade. Many thanks.

    Regards, Darren

    Hi,

    This is my first visit to this forum as I have had my Tivo for nearly 10 years now without having experienced any problems.
    Now after all these years of solid service from my faithful box and just as Tivo are about to pull the plug, one of my hard drives has failed (upgraded to 2 x 320GB WD HD back in 2006), no problem I thought, I'll just ditch one and leave it running on the remaining one.
    Unfortunately that didn't work as I'm now stuck in a "Please wait almost done" cycle.
    I assume the B disk (working one) was paired with the A disk (duff one) and that I will need to re-image the working drive from scratch.

    If I'm right in this assumption could anyone possibly PM me a backup image link and any supporting info on how to get old faithful back up and working again.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Jeff

    Uk image?
    You will probably want to make your way to the alt epg forum, as with only a few weeks to go of official service, it's hardly worth setting up a standard image now!

    Thanks for the heads up, one question though, will the alt epg be available as a complete new image or will it just be a number of updated files etc. that will be added to an already working system.
    As my Tivo current HDs appear to be on their way out, should I be considering purchasing a new pre configured single HD.

    i'm sure that the a couple of the guys developing the alt epg will be perfectly happy to sell you a new disk with it on :)

    Both :)

    Up to you but if your disc is already iffy then it's worth considering.

    Sorry, not sure I got a notification post from this thread and I don't have the time to frequent this forum as regularly these days :)
    Fortunately, Spitfires has already answer though.

    Hi - after 9 years my disk has died. Can anyone help. I am looking for a disk image for a Thompson Tivo PVR10 UK.

    Many thanks,
