    The LBA-48 issue is even funnier. 4.x software is not LBA-48 aware, sending it out with an LBA-48 aware boot CD would cause problems for anyone with a > 137 Gig hard drive UNLESS a LBA-48 TiVo kernel was included. And including an LBA-48 TiVo kernel would cause another round of problems. Let's face it, some of the people buying these images would have problems installing a killhdinitrd kernel, let alone monte-ing into the LBA-48 kernel.

    Bill--go back to the RID files section. It was suggested that people buy instant cake for the 4.0 image and to buy the LBA48 framework disk. MY POST WAS IN THAT CONTEXT. The RID hack includes a monte to a LBA48 kernel. There were posts that suggested you re-expand with the LBA48 disk. ADH and others said that leads to corruption and is a poor way to do it.

    Lou from ptv upgrade finally admitted the problem and is/was working on some type of solution.

    People who chose to pay for an image file and the upgrade CD might like the image included on the LBA framework disk. More reliable and less CD swapping.

    A helpful poster steered me to winiso, I created a linux boot CD that had everything I needed in one place BUT the initial posts and CD images lead some users into using instant cake and being left with a corrupt partition or a drive not being fully used.

    I recommended PTVupgrade because they're one of the VERY FEW authorized sources for clean images, they sponsor the forum, and I really don't fancy trying to troubleshoot all sorts of wacky problems caused by hero-wannabe's hosting broken images


    4.x does NOT include lba48 support natively, the glitch is a shortcoming of mfstools under lba24 and really shouldn't be blamed on PTVupgrade - my bad perhaps for not catching it, but I've never needed the "***** proof" installer so it slipped in under the radar

    If someone would be kind enough to provide me with a source of 3.1.5e slices, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Justin

    Here's my beg...I apparently purchased the wrong image from ptvupgrade and i dont intend to buy another one. I've also been queued on emule for a few days, and the one image that I did get ahold of doesn't work. So if someone could push me in the right direction for a 4.0.1b image that'll work on my dsr704 i would be eternally greatful

    Yes, it would work. I would suggest making an immediate backup using MFS Tools (mfsbackup), then letting the system call in to update to the latest version (4.0.1b-02-1-xxx if I recall correctly).

    Once you are at 4.0.1b-02-whatever, you can copy the S2SA drive over to the new drive for the HDVR2 (do NOT reuse your original HDVR2 drive, keep that safe for emergencies). Then put the new HDVR2 drive in the HDVR2, when it boots run Clear and Delete Everything*. After it restarts, run guided setup, and you're running the latest version of 4.x on your HDVR2. (*Alternatively, hack the drive with killhdinitrd, AlphaWolf's Series 2 utilities, etc, then run 51killer).

    need any working version for hdvr2

    I had a hard drive failure, and I just need whatever so I can get my hdvr2 working again. no need for hacks or anything, just the basic image so I can restore it onto a new hard drive.
    I can't use torrent, or anything (blocked), only ftp or http. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Why can't you have internet access that doesn't block things? If you can afford a tivo you should be able to get decent net access. I'm confused.
