You should also check the capacitors in the power supply, may need replacing.
Appreciate it! Can I mount the new drive with usb by getting extra cable or do I need to open the PC to mount it? I only have a window 10 laptop now. Since the old drive is bad, should I assume that there is no need to backup the old drive and there is no need to use the copy function in WinMFS? I can go right to tools to restore? Thanks!
USB should be ok, did for me.
I'm a long-time Tivo owner. My second of 3 Tivo Series 3 Model TCD652160 won't boot past the opening screen. Looks like the HD has had it. Can someone PM an image for the HD? I have already replaced the power supply capacitors, so would like to give it a try on Hd replacement. Thanks in advance
Like many others... long time owner. Had the original back in 99 0r 2000 that was still running with a network hack until the tuner died on me. Anyhow, my TCD652160 hard drive started screaming at me. Looking for an image and maybe pointer to how to push it out. I'm familiar with *nix and windows so have a variety of choices.
p.s. Looking at a walkthrough now... guessing I'll use mfslive... or open to suggestions...
Already sent in the image thread.
WinMFS is the easiest method if you have a Windows PC.
Right... it's just a little hard for my sysadmin nature to accept an executable hosted on the internet. I suppose the MFSlive ISO I have could have been built with nefarious intent too though
Yep, no real difference in terms of what someone could do in the WinMFS Windows executable and the MFSlive Linux one on the ISO.
You can trust the WinMFS one as it's been in use here forever (11+ years?)
I would also like to request an image for a TCD648250B Series 3. Trying to resurrect it so that I can do OTA recording. I've already gone through and replaced capacitors on the power supply. Two of the capacitors were bulging, but none leaking. I bought the 2TB red drive listed elsewhere, so now all I need is the image and I should be in business!
Thanks in advance!
Does it have lifetime Tivo service?
Yes it does have lifetime service! Thanks again, I'm about to start downloading. If I have any questions I'll ask.
I am caught in an endless reboot-GSOD loop. HD and power supply are both good, so I am thinking the HD is corrupted. Has anyone a fresh image I might try using? This is a TCD652160 (Series 3 HD).
Hi Folks I have a series III HD (USA) that I believe the hard disk has failed but has lifetime service that I purchased so would like to get it up and running again. I think 1TB is the largest drive it will support but my 250gb was fine. Does anyone have access to the DISK ISO to format a new drive? I would really appreciate how to get hold of it. Thank you! Doug
Recommended drive is WD Red drive (Not Red Pro, 7200+RPM), WD10EFRX, or WD20EFRX (max).
The capacitors in the power supply may need to be replaced.
Thank you SO MUCH for the quick reply and instructions!!!!!
