I, too, am in need of a TCD658000 image. Many thanks if someone has one to share!
Any Chance I could get an image of TCD652160. My Mothers TivoHD wont boot past the Tivo booting screen.
You should also check all the capacitors in the power supply, its common for them to fail without any indication. Any electronics repair shop can do this.
Great Thanks for the tip.Will check the capacitors. I have upgraded series 1 and series 2 but nothing newer.
Would like to request a copy of TCD652160 image.
Thanks in advance 'ThAbtO' for all of your hard work.
Hello and thanks in advance. I have a TCD652160 with a failing hard drive and ended up loosing everything on the drive when I tried to copy it over to another 160G drive with WinMFS. I could get the new drive started if you could please send me the image file. A couple of capacitors are suspect, but appear easy to replace if I can get them somewhere. They're marked as C730 and C733 on their case and C503 and C403 on the board. Any advice on replacement capacitors would be appreciated as well.
My TCD652160 TiVo will boot up and play for about 15 minutes, then goes to the "welcome powering up" screen but does not come back. If I leave it unplugged for an hour it will do this again. I checked the power supply voltages all good, no swelling caps. I think I need to ask for an image and reformat a new drive.
ThAbtO, thank you for the fast reply and the link and info I need. Now I have to dig out my old computer that I still keep around for hacking TiVo drives. Been years since I last did this, but I think it will come back to me.
I need an image for my TCD658000 and any "how to" info I can get. I bought a new WD20EURS and trying to make it work. My old HDD is a WD10EURS.
The Green EURS/X drives are no longer recommended by me as there were issues such as Power-Up-In-Standby (PUIS), usually set by the jumpers, but its set within.
The drives recommended are the red (not Pro) drives. Power usage VS the Green are a bit lower.
Another issue common is the power supply capacitors which may cause hard drive issues and should be replaced. Any electronics repair place can do it if you are not able.
The Green EURS/X drives are no longer recommended by me ....
I have already tried to clone the new green drive but it would only go into the power up loop. I doubt I can return it at this point. Is there any chance to save this new drive? The old drive is still working fine but it is 9 years old and probably won't last long.
Depending on where you bought the drive, you may try to return it in lieu for a Red. Amazon gives you 30 days, as most others.
With the green drive, Intellipark and PUIS, needs to be disabled before Tivo will boot.
These drives are no longer made and may have warranty lapsed.
Thanks for you help
Hi, I have a Tivo HD model TCD652160 and a Tivo Premiere model TCD746320 both won't boot past the Welcome screen. Are there images somewhere I can download?
Thanks much in advance.
