    1. Find Tools/MFSAdd to expand. Ok this part worked
    2. Find Tools/SuperSize. It would fail to SuperSize, I tried several times.

    Every time after I restore an image on my TiVo HD hard drives, I receive the dreaded "Gray Screen of Death", which is preceded by 10 seconds of "Welcome, Powering Up". How do I go about fixing this? It's happened to all but one of my 4 TiVo HDs.

    Have you checked the power supplies? That’ll cause weird stuff. In fact, it’s generally the most common cause of video output failure, second to physical damage to the HDMI output.

    The capacitors are a common failing issue to cause various issues/failures to hard drive, video, etc.

    You could replace them yourself if you had the ability, or google "Electronics repair" with your zip code.

    I tried running WinMFS on a Win10Pro x64 system but it did not recognize the drive. Drive was not formatted but had been assigned in 'Computer Management' - 'Disk Management'. Does WinMFS run under a 64 bit system and/or Windows 10? Any suggestions?

    Hello, Tivo forum! I'm a new member looking forward to being part of the community. Been a Tivo owner long time and now need to work on my Tivo Series 3 TCB648250B. I am going to upgrade the original drive to a 1TB drive and would appreciate an image file to do it with WinMFS.

    Does the unit have an active Tivo service subscription? Lifetime Preferred.

    Otherwise, sending an image will not make the unit workable again.
