    Hi -jimmy-
    you best bet for getting hold of a TiVo backup image is to head over to the TiVo community forum. In the TiVi Uk section there is a thread already where loads of people have requested the image. I'm sure somebody there will send a copy of the image to you.

    Mark.

    You'll need to upgrade the kernel in order to use the entire 180Gb. Out of the box the Tivo will only read up to 137Gb so most people put a couple of 120Gb disks inside.

    I'm not saying upgrading the kernel can't be done, but it's not for the faint hearted!
