Advertisements Hi, I have an SD-DVR40 Series 2 Tivo. Never had a problem with the Tivo receiver until today. Came home from work and I noticed that the Tivo was stuck on a particular frame of the temporary 30 window. I thought it was because perhaps the Pause button was clicked. But it wasn't. Playing Play did nothing. Pressing the DirecTV button did nothing. Tried the buttons on the box, rather than using the remote. Nothing. So I rebooted it. When it came up, it got stuck at the "Welcome Powering Up..." stage. Left it for 30 minutes, nothing. I rebooted it again, and again, stuck at "Welcome Powering Up...." stage. So I took apart the box and checked the disk. I have an MFSLive 4.1 disk and I booted up a PC from that. Trying to see if there's a problem with the boot partition of the disk. I have two questions: 1) Is there any tools/SW on MFSLive that allows me to check and fix bad superblock sectors? FSCK is disabled on MFSLive. And pdisk is limited. It only showed all the partitions but did not display anything that said that the disk had a bad sector 2) I can live with a bad disk. I have spare Western Digital PATA drives. MFSLive has the dd_rescue tool that allows me to copy the contents of the original disk to a new disk. My question is, if I was to copy to a new disk, does the new disk have to be baked with InstantCake first? Or can I copy to it in virgin form? Thanx.
