    Did a complete restore with DvrBARS and it boots up to the point the yellow LED stops flashing then all of the LEDs light up and it reboots. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this or how to fix?

    Stuck in boot loop, never gets past "Welcome! Starting up..."

    First I would run a manufacturer diagnostic on the drive with a full read then write with a final read. That will get rid of most flaky spots on the drive. Then restore the image ggieseke gave you and try again.

    Im in need of an image for a Tivo Premiere TCD746320.

    I've been resurrecting mine with product lifetime subscription now that I've moved to a place that I can use antenna again, after being unable to use it for 7 years. Was working great, could watch/pause/record live TV, and even the old shows were still playing back fine. Then I thought I would run "guided setup" as I changed zip codes, just to make sure everything was set up-to-date. With that, the process restarted at "loading image". No way to exit guided setup upon restart, so I was stuck in a "Guided Setup" loop with it always restarting at the same point.

    Tried a bunch of kickstarts (now that I know what they are), and the "Emergency Software reinstall" made it worse. Now my Tivo does a restart-only loop -- after booting to the "just a few more minutes" screen it restarts again, no matter what.

    Wish I knew it was important to make a backup images before failure... never would have thought I could brick my system running a standard setup. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hello:
    I'm looking for an image for a Tivo Series 2 TCD649080... also could use explicit instruction on how to use DvrBARS to place the image on an old desktop drive I was using as storage and have formatted clean [i guess you use the restore tab? Just want to make sure]
    Many advanced thanks...

    What is the exact model of the drive? It may not work in a Tivo. Current hard drives are SATA and Series 2 and older are PATA and would need a specific SATA <-> PATA adapter. If you formatted the drive, you would need to erase it before placing an image on it.

    Image would be sent momentarily.

    its a Western Digital WD3200AVJB ... the type of drive with a separate power and ide ribbon cables [now that i think about it this drive may have come from another defuncted not lifetime series 2 not an old desktop, but was using it as storage anyways]
    Erasing the drive? Done on DvrBARS or Disk Management? [super timid newbie about this]
    thanks !

    Either management or the drive manufacturer's software.

    Thanks for der image ... under Disk Management now, the drive which I had assigned as (S) do I 'Delete Volume' to erase? Or some other function?
    [the drive is completely empty of anything since I formatted some days ago, the only 'used space' is 480mb]
