    Are there any copies out there? Or do people recommend going the instantcake route?

    Also has anybody compiled a more current linux startup/boot CD? It would be nice to find something with SATA driver support along with some of the more recent updates to the setup tools.

    Thanks in advance.
    If you open up your HR10-250 you will find a hard drive. MFStools (mfsbackup) can make an image of that drive which you can restore to a new drive. This image is superior to one you might find on the web, or the one from PTVupgrade because it is for your exact system, and it also happens to be free.

    As far as a more current start up disk, I'm not aware of any, but it certainly would be useful.

    Ok, thanks.

    I thought that 3.1.5f couldn't be killhdinitrd'ed. Am I wrong, or will I need to make use of 3.1.5?

    Don't confuse kernel version with software version. 3.1.5f software will work with a 3.1.5 killhdinitrd'd kernel. So will 6.3a (though DHCP requires an external module), but you can also use the 7.2.2-oth-K1 kernel.

    Yeah, I had thought about that. It was just that I was under the impression that one needed to perform at clear/delete All before creating such a back up to keep the backup at a reasonable size.

    I am hoping to keep the recordings with the current drive. So I wanted to practice on a scratch drive, just to make sure I had the process right, before applying them on the original disk.

    What size might one expect a mfsbackup to take up on HR10-250? (I don't care about backing the shows, just a copy of the software)? If it is less than a few Gig than I that's fine. However if it is closer to the 250G size, then I don't have enough IDE hard drive space to manage it.

    This is getting off topic for this thread, but since the guy who started it is no longer around...

    Your basic plan is good - make an image, load the image onto a new drive and experiment on that until you can copy everything from the original drive to a new drive.

    A typical backup without recordings will be in the range of 150 Gig. Jamie describes how to make a minimal backup (without recordings) in this thread. This image will require a 250 Gig or larger drive. There is a thread on making a small image from scratch; unfortunately nobody has done that for 6.3a yet.

    In case anyone is interested in an HR10-250 3.1.5f with slices, if you are member of Demonoid.com then you can get this file "instantcake-hr10-1.2-3.1.5f-SE3.zip" It's the Special Slicer Edition.

    You will also need "The Slicer" which is also found there.

    So instead of legitimately paying a site sponsor, we get to grab this free from someone who's whoring it out left and right, eh? No thanks.

    Humax DRT400 Kernel

    Does anyone have a kernel that will work with the Humax Series2 DRT400?

    From doing dd on the kernel partition and running 'strings' on it the version I have now is "Linux version 2.4.20 (build@buildmaster59) (gcc version 3.3.4) #1 Thu Oct 26 01:37:19 PDT 2006" which doesn't appear to work with killinithdrd.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    You'll have to replace the prom, then run replace_initrd on your present kernel.

    That's what I was afraid of...

    Anyway I was able install the larger HD and it recognizes that with the original kernel -- I guess I just can't hack it any further.

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up Beg: S2 TCD5400xx image, 7.x

    I would be very grateful and happy for a link for a clean Series 2 (TiVo brand) TCD5400xx image. Helping a friend out. The disk apparently failed.

    Didn't have any luck on emule.
    I saw a Tivo-S2-4.0.1b-02-2-xxx.mfs
    It's not clear to me if this is a match on a TCD5400xx (which previously had 7.3.1 build).

    If I try this, after I restore, would it just automatically update itself to the newest version since this box has a lifetime subscription (after a few call ins)?.

    I suppose that would be ok, but of course a 7.x would be better...

    Thanks in advance.

    Well everybody here is in luck. today Registrations are open over at Demonoid If you miss registering today, it's open every Friday.

    I'm aware this is not a zipper friendly site but I must mention it cause that's the key word u must search it under.

    Images and more are all there for the taking. One example is to do a search on zipper and the entire image disk is there for the taking. Even IC by itself is there. IC-tcd540-std.iso , IC 6.2.iso, or for the HR 10-250 IC with slices.
    The best it to do a search on zipper and everything is included, it's **** proof.

    Very important I will add, if ur gonna grab the instant cake and u use it, I say go over to PTVupgrade (Now DVRupgrade) and pay them the $20 they've earned. They do sponsor this very forum and lets support them.
