    Is it at all possible to restore the shows from a drive that is in a green screen reboot cycle and I can't seem to get the kickstarts working.

    Tivo HD with an expanded 1TB is what I am experiencing this issue with.

    I do have the original 160GB drive

    If you have a spare 1TB drive you could dd or dd_rescue the TiVo 1TB drive to it as a backup, then dd the 160's non-MFS partitions (but not the Apple Partition Map, the first partition) to the 1TB drive, and see if that makes them availible long enough to use TiVo Desktop to back them up.
