    Tivo is working fine with that image. I'm up to 150 hd hours now. Thanks!

    BACKGROUND: I'm trying to replace a bad disk drive on one of my Premiere 746320 Tivos so I got a copy of premiere_linux_inc_supersize_jmfs_rev104.iso off the web and I tried to use Unetbootin to create a USB boot drive but it is not working ... unetbootin can't find 7z and the USB boot can't find /ubnkern when it tries to boot.

    QUESTIONS:
    Where are the instructions everyone on this thread refer to because y'all seem to be having success ?
    Also, how can I find a good .iso for supersizing my premiere TCD746320 with a WD 2TB (GreenPower. WD20EURX ) ? I'm pretty sure my old drive is "toast"... so if my old drive is totally dead, can I just use one of those SATA HDD "cloners" by making a clone of my OTHER still-working Premiere (TCD746320) drive or will that prevent me from "supersizing" the drive to use the 2TB space ?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    BTW: My only available desktop with SATA drives is an old linux machine running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx with 1 SATA1 and 1 SATA2 port ... I didn't think it would make a difference but at this point, I'm so tired of trying workarounds, I may just use my MacBook Pro and connect to the SATA drives with the USB port on the HDD cloner box.

    JMFS is getting old.

    Use MFSTools 3.3. It can restore and expand with just 1 command line, on SATA or USB2.

    I would not use green drives, rather go with red 5400RPM and can go up to 8TB.
    Greens are no longer made and too much hassle from Intellipark and PUIS.

    Thx, for the advice... I'll try to get MFSTools ; As for the drive, I already purchased a green 2TB because I read somewhere that although 8TB will work, 2TB is max useable by a Premiere TCD746320 and the rest will go unused; Is that also OLD INFO?

    MFS Tools 3.2

    Old, old news, as far back as the Series 3.

    A Premiere will use the full capacity of a 8TB. Namely, over 800 HD hrs storage.

    Thx T, I'll definitely take advantage of that next time ...
    unfortunately, I'm having trouble getting a copy of MFSTools 3.2 for 32-bit x86
    or a MAC OSX version for 64-bit i7 MacBook Pro ....so for now, I'm stuck.

    I'm in need of a copy of MFSTools and an image for my TCD658000. I was getting S03 errors and tried wiping the guide data and now it just sits for hours saying it will wipe. I have an old WD Red 4TB drive laying around that I can use to get it up (My Bolt+ is being replaced as that just went 4 blinky lights, but my wife needs to watch TV now!!!!!) :). If someone can PM me both I would be greatly appreciative.

    The Max drive you can use in these Series 3 is 2TB.

    Thanks - I realized that but I had a 4TB Pro handy and no immediate needs for it. At some point I'll buy a 2TB Red and redo the install but had to get something up for the wife before I was found floating in a river ;). Thanks for the help - I am up and running.

    If its a WD red Pro, those are 7200RPM drives and the power supply will have issues with it, as well as more heat to contend with.

    If you have Amazon prime, you should be able to get it on 1-day delivery.
