    Perfect! This image worked with an old laptop drive I had (wanted to test that the drive was the culprit before committing to buy something else). The picture was a little choppy sometimes, which I am guessing was related to the drive not being made for AV use? In any event, no more GSOD loop. I've ordered a 2TB WD20EURS.

    Thank you so much!

    The choppy picture could just be CPU overload. Premieres are fairly underpowered, and it has to upgrade the OS (not to mention indexing two guide downloads). Even if you push the process by forcing a few daily calls it will probably be overwhelmed for the first 5-6 hours.

    As luck would have it, my model TCD746320 just died this week. I have a spare hard drive, but need the image. Would you be willing to share with me as well?

    Thank you

    Hello everyone! I am new here and wondering if this is the right place to ask. I have a Premiere TCD746320. My TiVo has been sitting in the closet for roughly 2 months now because I got the Green screen and leaving it to do its thing did not fix it. Looks like I'll have to install a new harddrive. Unfortunately I do not have a backup img of the stock harddrive, so I would like to ask if somebody could help me out. Thank you so much!

    Good evening everyone - Could someone please PM me a link to an image for a Tivo TCD746320 (Premiere) that works with a 2TB drive? Is that an altered image? Also is DvrBARS the best way to conduct the restore?

    thank you in advance!

    PM sent. It's for a 320GB drive, but you can use jmfs to expand it to 2TB.

    If you have Windows 7 or later, you could mount the VHD image file (read only please) in Disk Manager and use something like dd to xerox the virtual drive to your new drive, but it would take a lot longer. DvrBARS has a quick restore method that only writes the sectors that actually have information, and a ton of safeguards to prevent you from overwriting the wrong disk.

    I was hoping to find a way to get an image for my TCD746320. The hard drive is far too damaged to copy to a new drive
