    The HD in my Series 3 HD needs replacing. It died :(

    I tried using the Stock HD that I pulled from the box before I ever powered it on 9 years ago. That was working great until I got stuck at guide setup because all zip codes I try result in no zip code cable provider found errors.

    It seems the HD has the original SW that shipped with the new Series 3 HD boxes. I can't update it because of zip code errors stop me. So I'm stuck.

    So I was wondering if someone had a link to the SW file for the TiVo HD DVR TCD652160

    Also a link to instructions on how to create a HDD would be very helpful. Thanks.

    PS. This is a lifetime unit.

    Go to the Upgrade Center forum and post in the "Need an image?" thread.

    Most likely because it had old software, when it said it was calling to get information, it was really downloading the latest available software. Reboot the tivo and it will install the newest software which is compatible with the new guide information.

    It always completed the call in like 10 secs. I tried like 15 times and rebooted 15 times. No new sw is being downloaded.

    Do you have a link?
