Hi Folks, i am researching how to fix a series2 stand-alone
which keeps GSOD(ing) at 15 minute intervals, never really taking the
"3 hours" that the GSOD says it needs to fsck(i assume it's doing
this). I have let it sit overnight (uninterrupted as it
indicates) with no luck... finding it still rebooting 20 hours
later. This is my daughters Tivo, she "NEEDS" it, i'd like to fix
it as quickly and cheaply as possible. The questions I have are:
MFStools be used to manually fsck partitions (particularly the boot and
boot secondary) to fix such a problem as above?
Can I purchase and download Instant Cake, a new (larger than the original 40GB) drive, and build basically an empty Tivo?
Is there anything (like a hostid) that resides on the original disk that is used to connect to the service?
Any assistance would be appriciated.
