I used to think the serial number was on the hard drive, but it seems that the Tivo serial number is located elsewhere. Having said that I can now tell you about the bad time I have had with adding a second hard drive to my Tivo. Regular readers may remember that I added an 80gig drive to my Tivo a while back. As it turns out, this 80gig drive has a bad spot on it and causes the Tivo to crash any time it tries to write to it. When I started looking into taking that drive back out I hit a brick wall….
Once you have added a drive it is a heck of a hard thing to go back to a single drive… Unless you don’t care about your stored movies. A buddy of mine…who may or may not work with me, found the following site: ftp://ftp.abs.net/tivo/
The backup directory has oodles of backup images (I don’t know for how long so get them if you need them)
More news tonight if it works!
Hypothetically, of course...ReplyDelete
Where would one be able to find a backup image for a DirecTivo HDVR2???
