Unfortunately, my only 746 image is too old to boot on a drive over 2TB. Do you have a drive between 320GB and 2TB that you could use temporarily? Once it updates to the latest OS you can make a fresh DvrBARS backup of it and restore the new image to the 3TB drive.
Yes I've got lots of older (smaller) HD laying around, that wont be a problem.
I'm also looking for an TCD746500 image or a 320 restoring to a 2tb...
I, too, need an image for a TCD746320. Anyone know where I can find one?
I am another of the unlucky ones seeking the image. I have a TCD746320 that I had previously upgraded the 320 to a 1tb drive. The 320 drive is long gone, and now the 1tb has completely failed. I have a new 2tb drive, but need a virgin 746320 image to load on it (and then jmfs to 2tb).
Can anyone provide an image or link to same? I'd really appreciate it....
Hi, I, too, need an image for a 746320. Could someone please PM me?
I need an image for my TCD746320, I have a spare 1TB drive I'd like to use. Essentially doing this to get me through till I can get a Bolt+
Hello! I am currently searching for an image to use to set up a new drive as I fear the originally installed one is nearing it's end of life. We had a small flame up that melted the SATA/PS combo connector that is hard wired to the power supply. Everything is plugged into UPS/surge protection so we're not thinking it was a result of a power surge or anything along those lines. While actually watching TV the screen went blank and all of the lights started flashing on the TiVo front panel.
We thought we had lost the whole unit after the dramatic light and smoke show but figured it was worth keeping it alive with a possible power supply replacement since we were able to view the drive information using via disk utilities on another machine and other posts seemed to indicate the blinking lights indicated a likely issue of no 'hard drive present' potentially caused by a bad power supply and/or bad hard drive - since that matched our symptoms, minus the melted drive connector, that seemed a more affordable option than purchasing a new unit. A replacement power supply was ordered from Weaknees (Thanks for the lightning fast shipping of the order, guys!) which we promptly received and installed and were ultimately rewarded with an operating TiVo Premiere using the original hard drive.
The mainboard seems to be functioning properly thus far but we did get a green screen of death one time immediately after the power supply replacement. Even though we didn't see any subsequent GSOD's after a few intentional software resets I'm thinking it's better to be safe than sorry and get the drive replaced with a new and likely larger one which would also replace the externally connected expansion drive that we had also been using up to this point.
If anyone can point me to an image that will work for a TiVo TCD746320 it would be greatly appreciated!
I also need a clean image for a TCD746320 it would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know anything about images for Tivo drives so I have a question. Can a Tivo drive be backed up to a drive in a PC after the Tivo has been activated and set up? Could it then be used as an image to rebuild a new drive?
