    Can anybody PM me a hint where I would find the Humax 80hr T800 image?
    Is there any option besides purchasing the InstantCake CD?

    Check the Upgrade forum. There is a thread that describes how to access an FTP server that may have the image you need.

    I'm in the same boat: bought a flea market Humax T800 that has a dead Maxtor 80GB disk. From what I gather (as a Tivo newbie), this model is similar to the Tivo series 2.5, so the hardware is not as "hackable" as the earlier series 2 units. The unit I have says Made in Mexico (about 6 years ago).

    The Humax non DVD recorder is the same hardware as a 540, but still needs the Humax T800 software. Yes, it cannot be hacked without a PROM mod.
