    Assuming you mean TCD746320, this is the best thread for asking about Premiere images because it's also the thread for the software you'll need to use to install the image.

    The 1TB upgraded hard drive in my Tivo HD died yesterday... and I can not find my original drive since I moved earlier this year. I guess 7+ years was a good run on an old Deskstar, but I need to get it back up and running. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    EDIT: I Think I found the link to Unitron's dropbox site and pulled an image. It looks like WinMFS is AWOL, so I just found MFSlive-1.4.iso with the help of Ross Walkers' great site:

    Am I missing anything?

    For use with the MFS Live cd v1.4

    For use with WinMFS

    Since it comes from a different TiVo, the TiVo Service Number in the image won't be the one on your TiVo's motherboard, and you'll probably have to do a Clear & Delete Everything to get the board and the image "married" to each other before it'll let you record or pair cable cards or anything.

    Thanks! Do you have any pointers on getting WinMFS?

    Yes, you're missing my excellent advice to, whether using WinMFS or the MFS Live cd, not do expansion on a larger than stock drive as a part of a copy or image restore, but do it afterwards as a separate process using


    mfsadd


    after checking the success of copy or restore with

    mfsinfo



    This means when using the

    restore

    command on the command line, do not use the

    -x

    option (and you can skip

    -z

    as well, and just use

    -pi


    unless it's a Series 1 TiVo, in which case you skip

    -p

    as well and just use


    -i


    ), and if using WinMFS, when it says it's finished and you have extra room, do you want to expand you tell it NO and go on to run

    mfsinfo

    to make sure everything looks okay (the partition map will include an Apple Free partition the size of the amount the new drive is larger than the original one, but that will get used when you expand later as a separate process).


    Then use

    mfsadd

    to do the expansion.



    Sometimes doing it as part of the copy or restore doesn't work out and you have do it all over again, but I haven't seen my way fail yet.

    Tivo has stopped updating the software for Series 3 and older. However, an update may be coming in about 6 months or so, for mpeg4 support, but not for the OLED.

    Yes, they are 11.0m images for the TCD652160


    Help yourself.

    If you have any other model Series 3 (only possibilities are the original S3, the TCD648250B, the TCD658000, and whatever that Australian S3 is), speak up now and tell us which one--by slapping HD all over the original S3 and its box, and then naming the next S3 model the HD, TiVo, Inc., managed to create all sorts of confusion over what it means when someone says they have a TiVo HD or an S3 HD.


    As indicated, if you're using some version of MFS Tools to do the image restore operation you need the .bak file, and if you're using WinMFS to do it, you need the .tbk file.

    Either way, you need to read this:

    I've got a WD160GB drive dated April 2008.

    And all I've got are Macs. Despite my extensive scouring I can't seem to find a way to do this HD work without a windows machine to run MFSTools

    Are you re-using that 652's original hard drive?

    You need to burn yourself a bootable copy of the Ultimate Boot CD and run WD's own diagnostic software long test before trusting it.


    Do you know how to burn a cd-r "as an image"?


    Well, if you have any experience working on the Linux command line (or are masochistic enough to want to get some), there's always the MFS Live cd v1.4

    Unitron,

    Please help with a Toshiba RS-TX60. 160GB IDE drive.
    I either need an image or some kind of boot-up enabler.
    I did attach the drive to an XP machine attempting to use MFStools.
    Both the power supply and the drive are tested good. When I power up, I get:

    Two amber lights on and: Welcome! Powering Up...
    Hung on this and never changes.

    I can't seem to find Win MFS.
    Would you be kind enough to help me get the software I need for a Windows 7 machine, where I can connect the IDE drive internally and apply a fix.
    Thanks much!
