    There are no TBK files for a series 4 TiVos as WinMFS is for Series 3 and earlier.

    What errors/problems are you having with DvrBARS.

    I was very kindly supplied with two versions of the VHD file. I'm wondering if there was an issue with my first version of the file as it threw up errors on sectors when I did my first restore in the app. I ran VHD files on the file to try to fix it, but it didn't work. I can't remember the exact errors. When I downloaded the file today, maybe it copied right because when I ran the restore with todays file it worked.

    I could not be more grateful with the excellent help provided by the people on this site, who provided me the softwares and tutorials to fix my system. It's now working and loading data. You've really provided a service to me. THANK YOU all!

    .TBK is a WinMFS backup file and WinMFS does not work on Premiere (TCD746320).

    There are no TBK files because WinMFS doesn't work on anything later than a Series 3. What error are you getting in DvrBARS?

    yet another user who needs the image to replace the failed hard drive on a series 4 TCD746320 model. running 20.7.4b.RC3-746-2-746 software

    Side note - would the drive from the WD10EURX expander work? I already have that unit hooked up to the Tivo, could move the drive over.

    Thanks in advance!

    You would be better using a new drive. That drive is aged and can cause issues earlier than expected.

    Recommended WD Red (not pro, 7200+ RPM) and can use up to 8TB.

    Hi guys. I tried to setup a premiere 4
    TCD746320 for my parents which was in my closet for 5 years. It would connect to TiVo server but always reboots after it downloads the update and tries to load the update. Does it mean I need to reimage the hard drive to a later TiVo OS firmware? If so, can somebody send me an updated image? I would be greatly appreciative. Thank you.

    it reboots every time it trys to apply update. And the loops begins. I believe my OS version is too old and TiVo update crashes it. Hence I would like to see if I get a clean image, it would update it.
    Thanks

    Software version 20.4.1-01-2-746. Its on guided menu and when applying update after connecting to TiVo server, it reboots and the loop begins. This premiere has lifetime service...any way to fix this issue? Thanks

    Try running kickstart 76543210. It is a clear and delete everything so everything but the OS will be lost. But if we’re planning on starting anew with another image, it is worth a shot.

    Thank you ggieske for your image. I was able to get my tcd764320 up and running by full restore image using DvrBARS that I got from ggieske and plugging the hard drive back in the Premiere. Now my parents are happy.

    Hi ggieseke,

    I have exactly the same problem as yertua except my Premiere XL4 is on 20.6.1a.RC10-01-2-758. Any chance I could get a "post buyout" image from you.

    Would GREATLY appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, the only recent image I have is for a TCD746320. My 748, 750 & 758 images are all pre-Rovi.

    Oh well. Thanks anyway.

    If anyone else has an image or pointers, I’d greatly appreciate it. I know I can use Weaknees’ $95 service for this but I’m not sure the unit is worth that investment.
