    I recently took my 1TB TiVo HD drive and transferred it into my TiVo Premiere with no problems (used a modified version of MSFlive). The reason I think this went so smoothly is I just copied the original 320GB Premiere drive onto the 1TB drive and used MSFlive to expand the image.

    Problem is, now I need to recreate the TiVo HD drive and I don't have the original drive to port over the image. I do have a .tbk image file, but I think it's corrupt or something. The TiVo boots and everything, it just sporadically displays a message saying "A hardware problem has been detected". Also for some reason it doesnt display the TSN under system information.

    Does anyone know how I can get a clean image for the TiVo HD? I even tried using a copy of InstantCake, but it doesn't like the Optical Drive in my Macbook Pro for some reason.

    Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Try doing a Clear and Delete everything and see if that resolves the issues.

    Well done Sir! This seems to have fixed the problem. Now I can feel a bit more comfortable shelling out for that $99 lifetime plan.

    Umm, your error REQUIRES the C&DE (mine did, and the symptoms are consistent with what I saw. Although it is odd that your image from the same device caused the hardware error!

    Glad to hear your device is back up and running, and also VERY curious about this $99 lifetime of which you speak!
