    Hi, looks like the disk in my TCD746320 died. Please send me an image and I need install directions using linux: dd to /dev/sdX or dd to /dev/sdX1?

    TIA

    Sent. The image is in Microsoft VHD format and the easiest way to restore it is with DvrBARS, which is a Windows program. AFAIK linux doesn't support that file format directly, but you can create a virtual machine with VirtualBox or VMware that will see the image as a "physical" drive. Check out MFSTools 3.2 and its mfscopy command if you want to go that route.

    Unless the new drive is 320GB, you will need MFSTools to expand it anyway, so dd is your worst choice.

    My HDD corrupted. Do you have an image for a TCD758250 you can send me? Much appreciated, Thanks.

    I own five TCD746320 and one TCD748000 all with lifetime. I have the 320GB image which I use to upgrade all of 746320 to 2TB. However, I just had the drive fail on my TCD748000 (Premiere XL).

    1. Does anyone know if I can use the TCD746320 image will work on a TCD748000 or am I *required* to us an image for the TCD748000?

    2. If TCD746320's image won't work, can I talk someone into giving me a link for the image?

    Image sent. Premieres are somewhat tolerant about using images from another model of Premiere, but it's much better to use the correct image.

    I have a Premier unit (TCD746320) and it looks like the original 320MB drive died. Bought a WD3200AWS with 2TB so I'm looking for an image. Just confirming that's all I need to do? Run DVRBars and image? Thanks in advance.

    Sent. After restoring the image with DvrBARS you will also need to run MFSTools 3.2 or jmfs to expand it into the full 2TB.

    I also have a Tivo Premire unit that just died on me , TCD746320. It won't recognize in the bios of my computer, so it looks like I'll need to go the clean image route. Looks like I'll be using DvrBARS and MFSTools 3.2 or jmfs on my windows 10 machine to expand it into a 500gb WD green drive I just purchased off of ebay. Any PM is appreciated!

    Hi, I'm trying to fix my sister's dead Tivo Premiere 4 (TCD750500) in order to preserve her lifetime subscription. Could I get a drive image for this model?

    Thanks.

    Thanks!
    I can't see any drives with the winmfs program, even with show mounted drives checked. Does it normally work with win 10? I'm using a Ugreen USB3.0 to IDE/SATA converter.

    I Will try docking station next.

    Edit... That didn't work either. Suggestions?
