    PM sent. You can use DvrBARS to restore it, and after that you can expand it up to 2TB with jmfs. The minimum drive size for this image is 1TB.

    You can go up to 4TB if you restore the image to a smaller drive, put it in the TiVo and let it update to the latest software, then copy it to a new drive with MFSTools 3.2. From that point it's possible to go up to 8TB (see jmbach's 8TB Premiere thread) but it's a bit tricky.

    All of the tools and threads I mentioned are in the Upgrade Center forum.

    My TiVo Premier (TCD746320) started flaking out earlier this year and finally gave up the ghost recently and won't boot now. Can someone help me out with an image so I can try to resurrect it? Much appreciated.

    Hi All,
    Long time TIVO user but never had my hard drive die ... until now. Been doing lots of reading on the community. I'm going to try to use DvrBARS to restore to another 1TB drive but could really use an image. TiVo Premier XL model TCD748000.
    Thanks so much

    Hello Everyone,

    I have been a tivo user for MANY years and I just received the GSOD on my TiVo Premier XL model TCD748000 with Lifetime Sub. I took out the drive (WD Green 1 TB) and ran tests and they came up clean. So I had the silly idea of wiping the drive and then reinstalling the image. Only bad part is that I don't have an image. Can someone please send me an image.

    Thank you very much!

    Hi everyone!

    had an old pioneer tivo/dvd recorder that worked great, but haven't used it much since it only was SD
    just picked up a tcd748000 at a garage sale
    seems stuck on the "starting up" screen
    i need to either reformat or get a new HD for it

    or is there anything i can "try" to get it working?

    or guess an image of the drive would be great to have... :)
    thanks, much appreciated

    Guess I need an image, too. Half a dozen TiVos and this XL has the only drive that has ever failed. Also, the only one where I had used the original TiVo drive!

    My premier xl also died (TCD 748000). Will not boot, all lights on front of unit are constantly lit. I put a new power supply in and get the same response. Now I'm wondering if the HD is bad. If anyone has an image for the 748 I can try a new drive to see if that is the problem. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
