I've looked through the post hear but can't find the file/answer I need.

1st my drive is dead, no backup. :mad: So I need an image to start with correct?

2nd can I put a smaller drive then the factory in to get me up and running?

3rd The factory drive is under warranty but if I get a replacement drive it will be blank and I'll still need an image correct?

there are images all around, these are the easiest to get. you need a philips or hughes image, either will work. If you are legit, you can load any version and dail in to get to the current version. You cant go to a smaller drive, your gonna need at least a 40 gig, maybe a 30 if you can find a dual drive image, but that wont hold squat. Grab a cheap onsale drive, and warranty yours, to keep as a backup. EVERY tivo owner should have a backup of his image, there will definitely come a day when the drive fails...........
