    Wanted to report that 'so far so good'.
    The image sent by ThAbtO seems to have done the trick. So after a couple of days of heavy and misc recording, I've had no reboots.
    Fingers are still crossed, and I'm not trusting that machine with recording anything of value for awhile.
    Hope to start pumping content back to it, via pyTivo, starting Friday night.
    Again, THANKS!!

    My Dad's TCD652160 drive just died and no image taken for several years, if I can even find it. :( Can I get a link?

    Thanks!

    Hmmm. Can't get Winmfs to see any hard drives to select from, including mounted drives.

    Got a TCD652160 image I can use with MFSTools?

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to repair my Tivo HD after a hard drive failure. So far mfscopy hasn't been able to get me past the "Powering on..." and "Almost there..." screens. I would like to try a fresh image on a new disk.

    Could anybody PM me the image for a TCD652160? Thanks so much.

    I have a TCD658000, that I have a backup of .tbk but it is quite old. I have 3 Tivo HD's and I was making sure they called the mothership. 2 of the 3 it went fine, but this one, would get stuck on Powering UP, and then I started searching for other Drives in my collection, I even opened up the Tivo Externder I had, but it was only 500 gb, and wasnt big enough to take the restore.

    So I am not sure if I need a more modern update to the TCD658000 (XL?), so that I get a better software update right off the bat, with first boot up. and....

    I am not sure if I take the drive and format in my XP computer to NTFS, and then use WinMFS to restore the .tbk is the correct method to get this Tivo going again.

    I either seem to get stuck in the S03 error with one drive after completing the Guide Setup download, in the last step instead of DONE, or as currently happens, I get all the way thru that channel guide setup, and it says there are no channels in the area code 90712.

    So maybe I am asking for an image for the TCD658000 and a little refresher course on whether my steps are correct. Maybe I shouldn't format the drive.... but is that too late? Thanks..

    Oh, and the first thing I did when I moved another drive to this TIVO , was to do a clean and delete so that it hooked the HD up with the motherboard, but haven't had that option , since it is always going straight to the 5 minute setting clock, and getting data, and installing, and then No Antenna data.

    How do I tell SW version, if it boots to Guide info, and is a loop.

    I have v11.0n.K1 running on a Tivo HD (Not XL), if I backup this and place the image on the drive having trouble, will XL image be compatible with regular Tivo HD?

    What Tivo software version is it running, as shown in System Information.

    Unless its running v11.0n.K1, you would not get any channels. This happened when Tivo switched to Rovi for guide data.

    Does anyone have an image for a TCD652160? The drive in my old friend has passed on after many years.

    Thank you.
