TiVo own the copyright on their software and do not allow images to be made available for download.

If anybody can help then please use PM and do not post links.

My upgraded Tivo died a death recently and I would like to make it a single disk version as I have no idea about divorcing/marrying drives together. I would appreciate it if someone could tell me where I can download a Tivo songle disk image so I can just put that on a HD and put a single disk in my Tivo. I know some of u will think it's really easy to make an image and will say I should follow the Hinsdale tutorial, but I do not understand it and don't want to ruin the machine. All help appreciated.

I need a backup of a UK tivo too.

I'd been debating upgrading my tivo for ages. I'd just decided to go for it when sods law kicked in and the A: drive corrupted.

The tivo started to freeze or crash quite frequently. I thought I'd better sort that out before upgrading. Tivo suggested that I re-run guided set-up. I did, but it got stuck in a 'powering up' then crashing loop.

Thanks to previous posts here, I ran powermax diagnostics, which confirmed that the A: drive is indeed knackered.

Would someone please please please PM me a backup of a UK Tivo. It's a Thompson dual drive with a 'Thompson reference' PVR10UK.

I so wish I'd upgraded to that lovely new 120GB drive a fortnight ago.

Maybe this will cure me of procrastination?!

Well, after reading posts about nice large disk sizes in a TiVo for the past year, I have decided that I too will upgrade my dual-drive machine to one large drive. However, just like the above contributors, I too would need a single-disk image. Could somebody PM me too with a link.
Many thanks,

Daz

I'd got myself a new 120GB drive already. I'm going to get a single pacelink 120GB drive to replace my corrupt tivo then upgrade it with the other drive. After making a backup of course. Best of both worlds.

Thanks for the advice on pacelink. Very useful to know.

Disaster!, one of my hard drives has failed in the Tivo,
no problem I thought. I got a new hard drive, tried to restore
from my backup, and the backup is corrupt!!, therefore for the first
time in 3 years, no Tivo!!

Could anyone possibly PM me a backup image link etc.

Many thanks in advance.

I'm curious - why can't a TiVo backup file be made available to download when neded? I can understand the copyright issue but in order to operate it also needs the hardware inside the TiVo (I don't know what - chips n things)...

You'll need to direct this one at TiVo - it was them that requested that links and kept away.

It is down to copyright issues.

Looks like my Tivo is on its way out.
I can't find my backup.

Could anyone possibly PM me a link to a backup image etc.

Many thanks in advance,

If a TiVo image, somehow found its way on to another forum or website, with a bittorrent link *cough cough*. Would it be alright to link to that website or forum thread? IE: Not a direct link?

I'm sure it would be very usefull to lots of people despite cloudy legal issues.

Any mods care to answer my question?

Thanks!

Chris
