    When did it update? No guide data is included when it receives an update. its done on subsequent connections.

    The last update was 3/9, the next is scheduled for 3/10 (today) at around 2PM or so. There's still no guide.

    Sounds odd. When you do a manual service connection, do you see it report loading data?

    You would not be able to use it. Tivo stopped activating Series 3 and older Tivo. So, it will not record or set passes. Basically, its worthless.

    Not yet, but I think I'm going to. I wasn't sure if it would kill my cable card pairing, but I guess I've not got much of a choice. And my other Tivo ran out of guide data - last connection was 2/26, and when I tried to connect, that one is giving me S03 - so I did Kickstart 57 and it gave me the GSOD w/that it's going to try to fix a series file system issue. That doesn't bode well. I'm starting to wonder if I'm putting too much effort into keeping the old guys around. I don't like to give up so easy, though, you know? They work and I don't need more than 1080P. My Tivo luck these days is not where it's at!

    Hey ThAbtO: I re-ran guided setup and that did the trick! I have a guide now. One more resurrected Tivo! WhooHoo! Thanks for your assistance.

    Thank you! I'm not completely out of the woods yet but I'm getting there. Still, this thread is not the place to share these woes so I'll post elsewhere if I can't figure it out, or if my experience can help someone else.

    I need the TCD652160 Tivo image. Ran into the dreaded S03 GS loop. Should have just did the factory reset when I had the chance. It stopped updating but when I brought it to a new ethernet cable, it updated. I then wanted to delete all of the programmed channels and only get antenna channels which I was successful at getting but not at deleting the cable channels that were still there and that's when it happened. It was my third try to understand on how to delete the cable channels when it gave me the S03 error. Will I just need WinMFS to reformat the hdd or what program(s) will I need?

    I have windows 10 am able to connect the hdd to my computer via SATA. And just curious, will my tivo be able to record shows by time and day with no subscription or will I need to find the show by hand?

    I'm trying to resurrect a lifetime Series 3 that's been out of service for about 4 years. It boots but I'm stuck in the S03 boot loop when I go through the set up. I tried all the recommended kick start codes but no joy.

    I think the next step is to reimage or replace the drive. Can anyone please send me the image for a TCD652160 and possibly some directions? I found a copy of WinMFS Beta Build 9.3g. Will that work? My PC is running Windows 10.

    Where did you read that as I'm pretty sure it's not correct?

    Could someone help me out with a TCD648250B (Series3) image? I have the S03 problem, but unfortunately cannot do "clear program & todo list" as I'm in a guided setup loop. I've tried various zip codes, including 00000, antenna only, cable, etc, with no luck. At this point, I think a re-image is my best bet. Thanks.
