Have been off the forum for about 3-4 years since I quit upgrading Tivos. One of my personal units, Humax drt-800, with a 650GB hard drive all of a sudden flaked out and stuck on powering starting up. Unfortunately, I have lost all my paperwork on the Linux commands necessary to format a new hard drive. I still have the old software on CD, but have totally forgotten the necessary commands. I did manage to run the Seagate tools on the bad drive and apparently none of the data sectors are affected, so I am wondering if it might be possible to copy the bad drive and get the recorded programs back onto a new drive. I need someone to point me to a link that has all those old directions/commands to use my old software. I also still have all my old images so just need some refreshing on what to do. Even if I cannot get my programs back I still need to format a new large drive. I remember from my previous times on this forum that most folks will give me the "search the forum" answer but after all these years I'm not even sure what to search for so I need someone to point the way.
