View Full Version : Anyone in Hobart that can reimage a drive?

Is there anyone in Hobart who could spare 1/2 hour to reimage a drive for me please?

I brought a TiVo over (from NZ) for my parents-in-law, and had it set up but managed to stuff it (selected clear and delete all). They only have Macs (and my laptop) so I have no way to reimage the drive.

The TiVo is stuck in a reboot loop (reboots before network drivers loaded) and I left my serial cable at home.

Can anyone help please? I'm here until 2nd Jan.

I might be able to help. Just need to dig out the old PC that I use for imaging

Give me a call on 0438 XXX XXX and we can try and sort out a time.

Great thanks! I will give you a call in the morning. I built a serial cable but no joy there either, so I will definitely need your help.

Thanks to Charlie's generosity of lending out his old PC, the TiVo is now up and running with dual source.

It also required the purchase of a $39.95 DVB-T box (Sansui SAN0737) from K-Mart, to replace the DGTEC DG5000i which we just could not get the IR codes working for.

We first searched all of Hobart for a DVB-T STB already in the IR database, but none were to be found. Training the IR codes for the SAN0737 was fairly straightfoward but will probably need some tweaking.
