    This should work with up to a 2gb drive, correct?

    I am trying to bring my Premiere XL (TDC74800) with corrupt software back to life. I think I have found the necessary instructions within these forums, and I believe I can find the required program(s), but I would greatly appreciate an image, if someone is willing to share.

    After deleting my channel lineup, Tivo support is claiming my Series 2 is corrupt. They'll send me a replacement box with the gotcha that I won't have lifetime service on it anymore. Sounds like they broke it on purpose.

    Anyone have an image for 540080 ? If it still doesn't work with a fresh re-image then I know for sure. Thanks in advance!

    If you find a 540040 or 54004A image, that'll work as well.

    This is not the most recent Rovi-enabled version

    but it should let you get it up and running, and then it should update itself.

    You might want to try it on a hard drive other than the one currently in the TiVo first, and you should check the power supply for bulging capacitors while you've got the lid off.

    Do you have any previous experience with working with either the MFS Live cd v1.4 or with WinMFS?


    If so, you could try switching to the alternate boot partitions and maybe save your recordings.


    And, if using a new image, after restoring it with either software, and only after, you can expand into any extra space with the

    mfsadd

    command.

    Re-running Guided Setup is the biggest mistake many make when they encounter the Error S03.
    Try pulling the plug and back in after about 15+ sec. Then run "Clear Program Info & ToDo List"

    Thanks. Actually I did not run the guided setup. I did a kickstart 57 which did not change nor fix anything. So then I did a kickstart 58 and it booted itself into the Guided Setup. I tried unplugging it for several minutes and it still got stuck in guided setup error s03 when plugged back in. I don't know what to do with it:confused:

    Not sure if this helps,

    Disconnect your network from the Tivo and continue through the (forced) Guided Setup until it complains that it cannot connect to the Tivo service, which you might be able to abort GS.

    What Tivo would say about the Error S03, is to unplug the network/ethernet for a few days and it would clear itself. (Garbage Collection).

    Unfortunately, it would not let me abort the guided setup. I disconnected the tivo from the internet at the Tivo and at my router, neither time did it let me abort, just told to me recheck my connections and what not.

    any more ideas? what would a kickstart 52 do?

    OK i waited 4 days to give it some extra time, it did not fix it. Still getting error S03 during the "Loading info" stage. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Can you get in via telnet? If so, run a "dbgc -mcp -fg-gc" command

    I actually have 2 TiVo HDs, one still works fine. When i telnet to one stuck in guided setup error s03 I get a blinking cursor then timeout, if i put the command in during the blinking cursor then i get invalid_command. If I telnet to the other working one, it says "connecting to {IP address that i pulled of my router} ... could not open connection the the hose, on port 31339: connection failed. I must be doing something wrong....

    I wish I logged back in here sooner! I rolled most of my videos with the old Tivo Desktop app (running in a Windows 2000 guest VM) so I'm not too worried about saving it. But honestly I don't know much about the appliance itself so I'm pretty fascinated there is an active/idle boot partition.

    When all was said and done, it turned out to be a lineup problem after all. I'd better extract the image on my own while it's still working well. :)
