Probably a simple question, but search is disabled at the moment, and I am confused by Mikeyboy's ftp site. I am kind of a ReplayTV novice, but am good with computer hardware so I am going to replace the failing disk on my friend's ShowStopper 2020.


I got the disk image: Showstopper&Replay30xximage3.02.rtv from Mikeyboy's site, but I am not positive that this is the correct one. Is it right?


Thanks.

All Panasonic Showstoppers are painted silver PVHS1000, 2000 and 3000 and use the image Showstopper&Replay30xximage3.02.rtv.


All replays are painted black replay2001,2004 and 2020. For these download the replay20XXvs3.02.zip file.

Thanks Mikeyboy.


I have not seen his yet, but he said it was a "2020" so I will use the replay20XXvx3.02.zip file. I am trying to get the 80Gb Maxtor I bought ready for it so I can just drop it in when I get it Wednesday.

Woah! So I downloaded replay20XXvs3.02.zip and installed it on the new hard disk using RTVPatch 2.4. It was extremely fast. I figured it would take some time to dump 312Mb onto the disk, but it was almost instantaneous. I did not see any option initially to use large clusters, so after doing the "Restore Target Drive" with your disk image I did a "Patch Target Drive" and picked large clusters.


I am looking forward to sticking it in his unit on Wednesday.


Thanks for all of the help you give to folks here Mikeyboy.

You must use the correct image for the model. If the wrong image is booted there's a slight possibility the EPROM data can become corrupted rendering the unit inoperative. The EPROM can be reprogrammed but it's best not to get into that situation.
