I've got a failing tivo drive that I've just taken out from my Series 1 thompson uk tivo, and its failed enough to not allow extration via my tivo, but does fire up under the mfstools boot and let me see the partitions. Its got lots of shows I need to get to, so I was wondering if its possible to put it in a pc and boot from a suitable linux distribution, then point tytools at it and extract to another pc that way? I'm not a great linux hacker - installing tivo hacks is tricky enough....;)
