    How to re-image disk

    Hi All,

    I just purchased a S1 Tivo which is running ver 1.3.
    I need to upgrade it to the latests version, unfortunatly I cannot find a write up, could some one please guide me in how to re image my Tivo?

    I have basic computers skills, I have downloaded putty.exe and can telnet to my Tivo.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    How do I remove the lid to get to the hdd?
    I removed the screws at the back but the lid seems stuck, Im to scared to add pressure to it.

    Removing the cover

    I jam a butter knife between the cover and the case at the back, and prise it out a bit. A flathead screwdriver is stronger but tends to gouge. The cover should slide back a few cm then you can lift it off.
    These days i just rest the bottom back edge of the tivo across the corner of a chair, grip the cover in both hands and shove it really hard

    Thanks Skolink,
    I did as you said and it came out nice and clean, I am so impressed with the build quality of the unit.

    Worked fine for me with Acrobat 6 and 8. I'm assuming that you do have Adobe Acrobat or a similar PDF reader installed on your computer?
