Thank you for sending me the file links. I'm not sure what to do with them.
TCD652160 HD v11.0n.K1.tbk
Am i supposed to boot in them? Which one should I be using. Does it have to be burned to a cd, or can I run it from my windows XP drive?
Just click on them and they will download to your PC/Windows. open WinMFS, Follow the included instructions.
Looking for an image for a Tivo TCD648250B Series3 Device ..
Got all my stuff setup and realized the one I was using was from my other device.
Thanks in advance! Have a great weekend!
Thanks Thabto, Took me awhile but I got the old girl going again with a new drive and your image. You are a good man!
My Series three is stuck on welcome screen. I suspect hard drive . I'm looking for an I need a WinMFS image for a TCD652160. If anyone has one it would be appreciated.
It may very well also be the power supply, capacitors failing, not providing sufficient power to the MB, hard drive, causing boot loop.
I changed the capacitors and it was working fine. Then one day just welcome screen. It maybe hard drive issue. Tried kickstart but no acknowledgement or handshake.
Hard drive is also aged. You can always try a new drive. I recommend WD10EFRX (about $65), WD20EFRX (about $85.) They're WD Red drives meant for NAS systems so they can run 24/7. There really are not much settings to fool with either. If you try to find another 160GB drive, it would be hard and cost more. It would just be a matter of putting a specific image on it and expanding to use the full size.
Let me know, and I can pass it on to you. I always include instructions with it.
I would really appreciate an image as well as instructions. Thank you
Thank you again. Can you use a old hard drive with windows on it? How do you hook up the drive. I put a drive in one of those usb devices it saw the drive but winmfs didn;t see the drive. Any ideas?
If it's already formatted as a Windows drive, WinMFS won't see it unless you check the Show Mounted Drive option. After that you should be able to overwrite it with the image.
Warning: Make sure you select the right drive - it would be a shame to wipe out your operating system drive.
I'm getting the error error writing media inode 1 . Any ideas?
I would like to thank everyone that offered suggestions to help fix my Tivo. I tried another drive with success no errors. Great forum.
Please send me a series 3 HD file. I was using the drive to make a clone and the unit apparently hosed the source file. Thanks in advance.
With such generic information, we cannot just send an image blindly. A model number is needed.
