    Sorry to bother, but my Premiere XL (TCD748000) died yesterday (I think from power outage...it is stuck on "Welcome...starting up" and makes a loud noise). I thought it was the fan, but the fan is blowing nicely. So I've come to the conclusion it's the hard drive. I'm happy to go to Fry's to get a new hard drive, and follow instructions I have found online, but I cannot find the ISO for the TCD748000 anywhere. Would someone happen to know where I can find one?

    Much appreciated for your help. :)

    Could you please send me a link for the Tivo Premiere XL TCD748000 image as well. I can't seem to find it anywhere out there.

    I have the TiVo premiere TCD746320 which keeps recycling on the start up screen. Do you possibly have an image for that? I am going to try and reload it on my current 1TB drive. Or will the premiere XL software work. Thanks much!

    I was a little intimidated about using DVBARS. Turns out that by using the images referenced above, the process is simple and painless. My Premieres are upgraded and I am a happy camper..


    Thanks Greg.

    FWIW. If Greg's image helps you, there is a link under System in DVBARS to make a contribution to help continue Greg's efforts for all of us.

    Could I use the XL 748 image on my 746? Is there any benefit? Thanks again so much for the link!!!

    Since you're using a 1TB drive you could give it a shot. I sent a link.

    About the only real advantage I can think of is that it's already sized for a 1TB drive and you wouldn't have to expand it with jmfs. The downside is possible problems due to running an image that's tweaked for a different model. Premieres are pretty forgiving in that respect and my 748 is going on a year now running a 758 image. YMMV.

    Does anyone have an image? Mine died and I need to image a new drive. The old drive tries to boot but it's cycling and never gets past "Almost There". When I run DvrBAR it says MFS volume header not found.

    Howdy. I have a TCD746320 that I'm upgrading the hard drive on to 500GB, would you think an image for a TCD746500 would work, and if so would you happen to know where I could find it please? Or do you think the TCD746320 image would work?
