    I too could use some help with my TCD746320. I'm stuck in the Guided Setup loop of torture. Does anyone have a fresh image I can use to get my Premiere back up and running.

    First time member, long time follower of this site. I just pulled my older Premiere TCD746320 out of retirement and during the setup process it quits at the loading step and restarts. From reading others issues, it appears I need to pull the drive and attempt to re-image it. ggieseke, can you please send me an image for TCD746320 and also my Premiere XL 748000 that is also having issues? Thank you

    Hello, I tried to reset my TiVo Premier TDS746320 back to factory defaults and it appears to have been that last straw for the disk. I would really appreciate an image so i can bring her back to life.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi -

    My name is Len.

    Like everyone else here, my the hard drive in my 746320 unit has crashed. It get stuck at the wait for tivo to delete everything screen. I've run kickstart 54 - it fails smart testing. I've run kickstart 52 - but no dice....

    Would appreciate if anyone could kindly share an image for 746320 and/or 746500 - as I have to replace the hard drive anyway.

    Try KS 57 while waiting. K&DE and CPI&TDL also cause this crash.

    What size is the new drive that you're going to use?

    Okay - I will carry out the KS 57 code and advise before the end of the weekend. I'm lacking confidence that the drive is in good shape.

    Let me see where KS 57 goes. Then I'll make up my mind on the HD size. My gut is telling me to go with a 500 GB over a 320 - probably a WD Green - unless anyone suggests differently.

    Thanks to everyone for the help/suggestions.

    Premiere can handle up to 8TB (or more). Recommended is the WD Red Plus (model number ending in EFRX mostly). Green is no longer made, sold overpriced, out of warranty, and some settings need to be disabled before it can be used in a Tivo.

    Well..... it looks like the KS57 code corrected the issue. I thought she was a goner for sure. She's back up and running. Fan is loud as hell, I'll probably lubricate or replace. Thanks to everyone for the help/advise/assistance.

    My 2TB drive in the 746320 died and while I had an old 320GB harddrive it has an image that won't allow me to get past the guided startup. It's been a while since I did anything to replace/reimage the harddrive myself. Can you please give me a step by step on how to reimage the drive? In addition, I have a couple of 2TB Western Digital (Purple) harddrives. Can these be used in a Tivo? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Yes, you can use that drive. You just need to wipe it, including all partitions.
    You can then use DVRBars (backup/restore) but not expand to the larger size, MFSTools 3.3 will copy and expand to the larger size, but it can take a long time, even overnight to copy/expand. It will do both at the same time.

    I sent you a base image for your 320GB factory drive, and an image that has already been expanded to 2TB with MFS Tools 3.3 for your Purple drive. Use DvrBARS to restore them.
