    Hey Everyone,

    My Premier's (TCD746320) drive gave up the ghost (was unable to clone prior to completely failing). I then cloned my original Premier drive (300GB!!!), I never ran on it, I cloned it to drive that failed when I first got the Tivo. The original image cloned onto my new drive just fine and the Tivo boots up like a first time, go through guided setup, connect to Tivo service, performs download, runs loading info for a few minutes then suddenly reboots. Then just keeps looping this process, I never see an upgrading Tivo load/boot screen. I'm guessing my original image is just too old to accept the current upgrade Tivo is pushing down... Thoughts? Do I need a newer Premier image? If so could some one point me to one? TIA!

    Image is too old check out the help my series 4 is stuck in guided set up forum and the dvr barz forum as they might have newer images already uploaded, I have a series 4 but it is the premier model that came with a 500 gig hard drive and I do not think that image will work on a 320 gig drive.
