Thank you !
Help! My TCD540040 hard drive died, and I'd thought I'd recently imaged it, but I stupidly hadn't. I tried restoring to a new HD with an old image, but now I'm caught in the dreaded S03 loop. I tried a KS 76543210, but I'm still getting the error at 6% loading.
Does someone have a working TCD540040 image please?
You just need to give it some time to clear out the S03 error. You can have it make Tivo Service connections about 1x or 2x a day. S03 usually mean its having issues garbage collectiing/Removing old data.
I have a TCD652160 TivoHD, Lifetime.
Does anyone have an image for a 160GB drive? Or a 500GB?
Thanks in advanced. You’re a life saver. Oh and I’m using the Boot CD method - if that makes a difference.
I do not have a CD version, Its a Windows only version, and its the original size, which can be expanded to fulfill the full size of the drive.
Recommended drive is the WD Red drive (not Red Pro, or 7200+ RPM), WD10EFRX, WD20EFRX (max for Series 3).
Thank you kind sir!!! You are truly a life saver.
I'm trying to bring this TiVo back from the dead until they have another lifetime sub transfer. I just missed the last one in August. So now i'm stuck with this old hardware.
Thank you again!
I skipped over that offer because the offer is towards the Bolt, which is trash to me.
If you don't mind me asking, can you share with me what would be a better option to replace my ailing TivoHD?
My current is the same S3-HD and a Roamio. Though the lifetime was at a high price (think it was $500 then), now $550. It would be worth it over the years VS monthly.
I kept my S3 so I can do my weekly guide searches for the week, see what is coming, interesting, ETC.
Nice! I hope this saves my TivoHD then! Thanks again, and I appreciate the insights. Cheers!!
I am in the same boat, bad drive on a unit with Lifetime service. Can I please have a link to an image for a TCD648250B. Thank you....
Thank you for the image!
I restored using WinMFS, performed a Kickstart 76543210 when the TSN showed "000000000," and got my number to appear. However, after finishing Guided Setup with either my zip code or all zeros, I got the "No Cable Providers Found" message.
I pulled the plug and rebooted, but when it says it's doing a service update, it reboots abruptly. Now it's stuck in a "Welcome! Powering up..." boot loop, without even the possibility of entering a Kickstart code. It seems I need to restore the image again.
How can I get the Rovi update so I get can past the zip code?
Most likely the capacitors in the power supply is bad.
You need the software updated BEFORE running Guided Setup. (no providers)
Ah. Sorry. I think we had a bit of a miscommunication.
The reboot loop only occurs after finishing Guided Setup with the failed zip code lookup. Otherwise it boots normally.
However, the restored image boots directly into Guided Setup each time. I've tried KS 51 and 52, but neither gives me the needed service update and just goes straight to Guided Setup. It only tries to update after finishing GS, but by then the image is corrupted.
Is there another way to force the update?
Worked like a charm, Tivo is back up and running.
Looking for a link to an image of TCD652160 (N_K1 if possible)
Trying to resurrect an old TCD652160 with its original drive (wd1600avbs) after the upgraded drive failed. Sadly, I erased the original drive so it doesn't seem to just plug and play. Can anyone share the drive image I would need to start anew?
