Can someone send an image for the TCD240080? Mine doesn’t want to install the Rovi update.
Also, it does not have lifetime. I want to use it as a "digital VCR". Is that possible?Can someone send an image for the TCD240080? Mine doesn't want to install the Rovi update.
I know I can hook up a cable box to it, I'm asking if anyone has an image for my TiVo with Rovi since mine won't get past setup because of that.If you hook cable box or compatible OTA converter to it, and blaster if you want it to change channel itself. edit thought you said has lifetime won't work. There are plenty of S2's on ebay cheap with lifetime, someone here probably has one to sell too.
@ThAbtO any idea about this part? He's unable to upgrade his other Series 2 unit that does have lifetime.Also, when downloading the Rovi update on a lifetime TCD540080 after using your restore image, his TiVo got into a bootloop. He wants to upgrade the 40GB drive in it with an 80GB.
He has a working 40GB hard drive, but cannot backup and restore onto a new drive. WinMFS and DvrBARS complains something is corrupted with that hard drive, so copying over the hard drive data doesn't work. Restoring the broken image with DvrBARS got him stuck on a grey screen after the Welcome screen on bootup.
Is there another way to get the Rovi update without letting it sit through Guided Setup? Kickstart 56 does not work and says there's a bad connection (same issue happened with one of my personal TiVos).
How did he know what was on it before buying it? And why did he buy it as there is really almost no value in a series 2 other than parts (and even then the value has to be minimal)?and he just bought that Series 2 just to archive the recordings for preservation purposes

We've had S3 OLED's since 2007 although we didn't get our HD TV until 2010. I can't imagine living with SD.He didn't know what was on it beforehand.
He has a bunch of TiVos now. He uses Series 2, he will soon have 3 Series 2s with lifetime after he learned how to check the TSN with TiVo Support.
Me neither, but he likes to use CRTs and such. But he just got a cheap Roamio and activated it, plus he found a Series 3 OLED with lifetime that's apparently broken that he wants to get.We've had S3 OLED's since 2007 although we didn't get our HD TV until 2010. I can't imagine living with SD.
