I'll apologize in advance if I've missed this somewhere, but haven't seen this trouble obvoiusly reported and/or worked around:


My 3060 went brain-dead, stuck at "please wait", so after much reading here, I presumed OS corruption, and went off into RTVPatch-land to attempt reviving the unit. This seemed to go pretty well (I used the 3000/showstopper .rtv image from the net to restore/patch). Many many many thanks to this community for getting us to the point of being able to do this at home! I am very grateful!


But, the unit comes up thinking it only has 30 minutes of storage. Hmmm, says I. So, I did a 777-zones factory reset (any data was already gone anyway), but for other reasons (modem/phone line issues), haven't gotten through the initial setup yet. Will the full disk size be restored once I do that?


Also, on the net .rtv image: I thought it would already have the modem settings page. Either I missed it, or it's not in there. Did I miss it? (this would help me get past my phone line problems, I had previously set the modem to 28.8 to get it working consistently)


Once again, mucho thanks to all. My wife was amazed that I was able to do in about 1/2 hour what the service rep said would take weeks, and many $$$ (well, I know I'm not done yet, but I can tell I'm so very, very close).

That image ftp://anonymous:[email protected]/R...order%20image/ you downloaded does have the modem speed panel. Modem speed panel is accessed when at the "Dialing Prefix" screen in setup - hit the "zones" button on the remote.



Also I don't think you did the patch correctly. Put the replay drive back in the PC - set replay drive as "Target" and perform the patch answering yes to all the questions. Should read normal hours after that.

Indeed, the modem speed page is there, and works like a champ.


So does the disk image, *IF* you remember to do a 'patch' *after* you have done a 'restore'. Very important. I guess that's what the whole text of the message in the 'status' field meant, but all I could see was "Needs to be..."


Once again, thanks to all of you. This has saved me from having to think about a replacement unit, or having to deal with the wait and cost of service. I feel whole again. :D

I know... but making their lives "whole" again really goes beyond the call of duty?


Once again Mikeyboy to the rescue! :)
