Pay the $5. It's well worth it.

The 000001 file is your backed up hard drive image.

You most likely will not find the VMILINUX file as I have read that the folks at PTVUpgrade had to pay the creator for the rights to distribute it. Come on, it's only $5. :rolleyes:

As I stated before, the 000001 file is the Tivo image file and it can be yours for FREE. Just back it up using the LBA48 CD from PTVUpgrade. You could pay $20 for it if you wanted.

you didn't ask about downloading the files w/o paying for them in you post above but Tracy answered your question correctly :D
