    Looks like the drive in my Premiere has bit the dust and I dont have a recovery image. Not sure if this belongs in the underground or not but I wanted to see if there is software like InstantCake for the Premiere where I can load an image without a working drive. Anyone got any advice for me?

    Unfortunately you will have to purchase a TiVo formatted drive from E-Bay or Weeknees as no file exists for the Premiere at this time. Or you could purchase a new TP from Amazon for under $85 and just move the drive from the new one to your TP and have extra stuff like a remote etc. You could copy the drive to another 1Tb or 2Tb drive and have more storage space and a working drive on the shelf for future use if needed.
