    Hi I also need a recovery image for
    Tcd758250

    it boots, drive passes all diagnostics, gsod performed but everytime it goes through setup and connects to tivo it reboots and starts over again. I got this unit used so the drive in it may not have a matching tsn.

    I am yet another needy soul looking for the TCD758250 image. I am assuming I can use the DVRBars app to image my drive. Thank you in advance for sharing.

    I'm looking for an image of TCD758250 hard drive and installation tips, using a 1TB Western Digital driver.

    Image sent. You will need at least a 2TB drive for that model because that's what it came with from the factory.

    Thanks, really appreciate it. My 1TB was from my Roamio model before I upgraded that drive. I'll order a 2TB to restore this Premier model.

    I put my 2TB drive back in to my Premiere, and get the boot and Green Screen of Death loop. I used DvrBARS and found "mfs volume header not found". My drive was pretty full.

    Can DrvBARS replace only the mfs header info (maybe potentially wiping out a recorded show) since my drive is full?

    Thinking maybe purchasing a 3TB drive.
    1. Could clone my 2TB to 3TB (would need to still fix header and probably need to expand space).
    2. Is there a way to to copy the shows from that non-booting drive to another?

    The MFS volume header is the first link in a chain of header structures that describe the MFS file system and 'zones'. It's located in the first sector of the first MFS application partition and there's a backup copy located in the last sector of that partition. If DvrBARS couldn't find that structure or the backup copy it's highly unlikely that any information could ever be salvaged from the drive.

    DvrBARS can only overwrite the entire drive with a clean image, but IF that's the factory drive, and IF it only failed recently, and IF nothing else was damaged there's a faint chance that an expert could copy the header and possibly the entire partition table from the image to your drive with a disk editor and get it running again. The only people with that level of expertise that I know of are myself, @jmbach, and Weaknees. At the very least it would require shipping the Premiere and the replacement drive both ways with very little chance of success, so you would have to want those recordings a lot.

    There is no way to access the recordings on a non-booting drive.
