    Yes, it does. I bought it back in 2008 and am the only owner of it. I'd say I got my money's worth! It's been very good to me during that entire time and why I haven't upgraded to a newer Tivo until recently.

    Does anyone know the maximum hard drive size that can used in a Series 3 Tivo using the WinMFS tool?

    2TB. Recommended is WD20EFRX, or 1TB, WD10EFRX.

    Just out of curiosity, what are the other tools available, if any, to do put in a larger drive than 2TB, OR is it a Tivo board limitation?

    I found this post and it seems that it saying using any version of Windows 7 or greater for hard drives "greater" than 3TB. Or, does that mean up to 3TB? o_O Capture.JPG

    When I wrote that, it was for any large drive 3TB and larger. Although the older models only can support up to 2TB or less.

    For the Series 4 Premiere Tivo, what is the largest hard drive capacity that will work inside it?

    8TB, last I checked. Some dudes took a Roamio beyond that, but I think that's only Roamio/newer.

    Can someone please share a link to a TCD652160 image (Series 3 HD)? I have MFSTools, and also am setup to run DD (disk to disk exact copy) if needed. So an image that works with either will help me revive an old one lying around in the garage.
    Thanks in advance for the kindness.

    Unless it still have lifetime Tivo Service, it would be futile to send an image because they will no longer activate these old units.

    Yes, I recall having bought this one with the lifetime paid up option. It also came with an external extra storage unit, but I can't seem to find the unit now.
    I hope the external storage is needed for the Tivo to be back in service.

    It is probably the reason it has failed. Its not recommended to use any external drives in a Tivo.
