    Thank you very much for the quick reply. I got it downloaded but WinMFS errors with "Not a valid backup file!" Any thoughts on why?

    Thanks so much! I somehow had a beta 6 version from another site. Got from your instructions and already done!

    Hi. I too am plugging in a Series 2 just to update it, and the dreaded Error S03 crops up, usually around the 75% mark. Why do you think leaving it in overnight helps?

    Its all the old data its trying to get rid of and its taking too long. So, it may even take days to clear, It mostly happens when it tries to connect to Tivo Service. It may help to disconnect from your network, and make Tivo Service connections a couple times a day.

    Not sure how I can both disconnect from my network AND connect to Tivo?

    There is a menu selection under network that say "Connect to Tivo Service." If you disconnect from your network, it will try to connect but fail, after clearing data. Re-connect to network. It may still fail afterwards.

    Right - that’s where I’m trying to connect next from. Guess I’ll leave it overnight and see what’s happened.

    I also need a newer file (TCD 652160 or 658000< preferably one of each) to get past the zip code roadblock after a guided setup
    Thanks.

    What version Tivo software are you running? It must be 11.0n.K1 or you will not get any guide data.

    Unfortunately, I don't know the version. I brought a S3 OLED and HDXL back to life after a long hibernation as both have lifetime subscriptions that are active and have 2TB and 1TB drives respectively. Without reading online first, I started each up and got the message that guided setup must be repeated for each and stupidly followed the directions. Both cannot get past the zip code issue. I am somewhat familiar with winmfs and don't need any old content on either drive. Hoping to find current .tbk files before having to go to Weaknees or some other more expensive route.

    If you look at the back label, you should see the OLED would be model TCD 648250B (not TCD652160) and the XL should be TCD658000.
    If you can confirm them, I can then send the right images. The images are very model specific.

    Yes, that is definitely the model numbers on the back of each.
    Thanks again.
