After some image backup problems I have now saved my Tivo image to CD. If I can restore this image from the actual CD then fine (I hope), but if I need to copy it to a hard disc first before I can restore it then what would the linux command line be for this?

Restores work fine from CD, you might need to type the following instead of pressing enter to boot the CD:

hda=cdrom (if the cd is primary master)

and when booted you can remove the boot CD, and put in the tivo.bak CD as you are running from a ramdrive.

mkdir /mnt/dos
mount /dev/hda /mnt/dos

restore -x -r 4 -zpi /mnt/dos/tivo.bak /dev/hdc

(assuming tivo drive on secondary master)

With the LBA48 CD and later it also works with an image from a USB stick if your PC has a USB port - just mount /dev/sda1 instead of /dev/hdX :up:
