    hi
    i've got a uk tivo with 2 drives and last week it crashed with the green screen of death. it never recovered from this.

    got a new drive to rebuild a new system - have used the mfstools before and am confident user and fairly capable with linux.

    went to backup the drives and they appear locked.
    tried to unlock to no avail - reports them not being locked!
    tried both tools.

    basically i need a backup image to start again.

    has anyone any idea where i can get one? or can i just build a brand new disk without needing to restore an old image?

    hinsdale guide and steveconrads guilds don't seem to give the impression i can.

    thanks in advance.

    The images are specific to a Tivo model. Please post the manufacturer of your Tivo and the model.

    In the UK there was only ever one TiVo model.

    I've gone and bought Hooch from Tivoheaven.
    it seemed the easiest solution to pay for a tried and tested build which will sort all the confirguration issues.

    thanks to anyone who was offering advice.
