    I have a Series 1 Phillips DVR218.

    I put two brand new drives in it, because the original drives were taken out. After using mfstools to out a working backup onto the new drives the tivo started up just fine. When connected to make my daily call to tivo services the download finishes just fine, but while it is installing the install it failes, some time after about 17%.

    Anyone have any ideas on this one?

    Mill Creek,...
    Are you sure that the backup image file you used is specifically for a Philips DVR218?

    The backup was from an DVR112, but I was told that it would work on my 218.

    I have found out that my TiVo is not a 218 (my bad) and it is actually a 212. If that helps anyone help me, that would be great to have some more information on my problem. Thanks everyone.
