Wow seems to be a large number of Premiere image requests recently.

Hard drive failures seem to be in season.

So it seems that the software description is pretty old. Wondering if there's support for the Bolt and/or support to expand storage as the initial description implied might be forthcoming. A program like this would be very handy. Also, I wonder if it might not be possible to prepare a standard external drive for use via ESATA in place of the now defunct WD DVR Expander?

While that can be done, and outfits like Weaknees (and perhaps others) are doing it commercially, it's not so easy. The allowable external drives are hard coded into the TiVo software, and so byte-level modifications would have to be made to the code on the current hard drive.

And even then, it would be difficult to modify the code for any model drive except the specific one you wished to install.

I haven't looked at this for a while, and so things may have changed, but that's how it was with every TiVo that didn't support the old Kickstart mode of adding an external drive (all the ones after the S3 OLED, I believe). I'm sure someone will speak up if I'm wrong (which would not be too unusual).

I looked into updating this program back when the Roamios first came out, but the VHD file format that I use doesn't support drives over 2TB. To bring it fully up to date and add features at this point would take months, and I would rather put that effort into an entirely new program with different design criteria.

I'm sending out Premiere images like crazy these days, so it still does what I designed it to do. My next program will probably drop imaging altogether and focus on copying & expanding Premiere through Bolt models.
