Advertisements TiVo Restore Image Archive Index of /TiVo Restore Images Alternate Link: TiVo Restore Images - Google Drive What is this? This is a collection of TiVo Restore Images that I have gathered over the past few months, which includes images from TiVo Series 2, Series 3 (in WinMFS .tbk format), and Series 4 (in DvrBARS format). Why? For some reason, I have an obsession collecting these. It's a fun project, and it can help people restore their TiVos if they have a dead hard drive. I also have an interest in extracting the assets from these images. Where did you get these from? ThAbtO - Series 2 and Series 3 images ggieseke - Series 4 images jwillis84 - Series 2 Humax, Pioneer and Toshiba DVD burner images ??? - Series 3 Australian TiVo image (I forgot who uploaded it, it was buried in another forum) Usenet - Series 2 Hughes SD-DVR and Philips DSR704 images Dave Math - Series 2 DirecTV HR10-250 image (I don't have this yet, but he is likely to meet up with me and get his drive backed up) How can I help? Please PM me any TiVo Restore Images I don't already have. This includes Series 1 TiVos, which no longer get guide data. A restore image would at least make the TiVo actually run. I don't care what the format is as long as I can make use of it. Old InstantCake images, WinMFS, etc. are fine. Series 1-3 TiVos can be backed up using WinMFS, and Series 4 TiVos can be backed up using DvrBARS. I am missing all Series 1 images, and some Series 2 images (most missing are for DirecTV boxes).

I apologize for that, and I hope they don't kill me for making this thread. I have gotten permission from jwillis84 though. I have tried to share my collection with ThAbtO and potentially get some images I'm missing, but he never responded to my messages for whatever reason. (I don't mean to turn this thread into a rant, nor start drama). Those images were grabbed using the system here - make a post in the forum and then wait at least 24 hours and get an image that is manually shared. The system works fine, and I understand the images are supposed to be shared privately (I saw a post where ThAbtO asked someone to delete an image they shared that belonged to him), but I feel that it is good to have a backup for preservation in case something happens to someone or something. InstantCake is no longer around, and the few images that are on the Internet have dead links. I do not mean to have bad intentions by sharing these. ThAbtO and ggieseke, I hope you understand my intentions to preserve these images, and I don't mean to stop you from doing your job of giving out images. All of the images I shared are reuploaded, so you don't have to worry about the links going down.
