    Thank you again for the quick reply, ThAbtO! Can I trouble you to send just the instruction list again? Got the file, but I didn't know how the conversations work and I closed it out before saving or printing a copy :)

    The conversation should still be there if you select Inbox and then Show All Conversations.

    You would need to use WinMFS to restore the image.
    1. Download the TBK image file.
    2. Run WinMFS in Windows ( W7+ for >3TB) under an administrator user.
    3. Select the drive to use, if its blank, it will be listed, if not, then the mounted button (careful you do not select your Windows drive. The drive will get deleted.)
    4. File, Restore, Select the downloaded file. It should only take a 3-5 minutes to complete. Click NO when it asks to expand.
    5. Find MFSAdd to expand.
    6. Find SuperSize.
    7. Put drive in Tivo and it would take 5-6 minutes for it to boot.
    8. It will then go through Guided Setup.
    9. Look in System Information for "Tivo Service Number" which may say "Not Available 000000000." If so, you would need to use "Clear & Delete Everything", would be under Messages & Settings / Restart or Reset System. (This needs to be done or it will not work properly.)
    10. It will go through Guided Setup *Again*. (no choice)

    Click on "Leave Conversation" up above when you are done.

    It is not a membership, it is a service subscription.

    It is sent.

    I'm delighted to find and join this forum! I need the TBK image file for my TCD652160. The old hard drive is toast. I won't be able to get anything off of it. So I just need to "image" the new, unformatted disk. I have a 1.0 TB WD10EZEX. I have a Mac Pro, with Windows 10 on it using Parallels. Would I be better off putting the image file on there in Mac OS X or Windows 10? Many, many thanks in advance for sending me a link to the TBK file!

    This WD10EZEX is not a drive I would recommend. It may be green, but not a drive designed for AV usage. You may need to disable Intellipark and PowerUp-In-Standby. PUIS usually is set with a jumper, but as of late, its enabled within the settings.

    I would recommend the Red WD drive (not pro line), such as WD10EFRX or WD20EFRX (max this model can use.)

    I can send you an image for it now or should I wait?

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your quick reply! You can go ahead and send it, if you would. I work at Best Buy so I can quickly get the appropriate drive (like tomorrow!). Should I go to Windows 10 on my Mac Pro or do the disk imaging and cloning work on the Mac side (El Capitan)?
