    Thanks for your work testing this out Fred. I have a couple of HDVR2's that I need to update. Its amazing how much you forget when things "just work". Off to read some more, I will keep an eye on this thread. Thanks again

    I think it's only supposed to happen once per week. Do you suspect a cron issue?

    @Xtra7973, you're welcome. Yes, there's a re-learning curve. How old is the Zipper? Something like 5 years or so?

    Right now I'm not sure what to suspect. I've re-Zippered with a superpatch that is only for 6.4a just in case there was an error in the "everything" version. I also replaced the files in the Zipper ISO's drivers/2.4.20_Series2 directory with those of the same names from the 2.4.20-8 directories of the driver archive from the other site.

    After running tweak.sh I called DirecTV and took a guess. Their voice system recognized the phrase "resend authorizations" and did it almost instantly. Locals are visible. Uptime looks good.

    Been running for 2 days with 1 nightly update. Cannot make SPs or set wishlists to active from TivoWebPlus. IIRC, it takes 2 nightly scheduling updates until that works. The error message looks like this:

    Code:

    --cut here--
    Have seen some of the network transfers drop. Have not tested every common network transfer method.

    I do not remember how many days the last attempt was up before it started rebooting itself. I wonder if it was the weekly phone call which is stubbed out. Cron issue? Maybe. We shall see. Want to add another drive but think that pulling the power should wait for another week to see what happens.

    No hesitancy to modify TivoWebPlus if there are good functions. I'm using 2.1 b3 110622 with no mods. Looking at:
    Global blocklist for wishlists http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=353390 (but will mod to support SPs)
    New Episodes http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=143639
    Dual-TiVo conflict resolution http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=138225
    There was a module which would send an email every day which listed the conflicts. Don't remember where I found it years ago.
    I'm also planning to create station logos for some stations which do not have logos in TWP.

    I restored a backup of my stock non-zippered HDVR2 onto a spare unsubbed one I have and zippered it up using superpatch-67all-NutKase-1.2 and the backport USB drivers. It's not subbed and not connected to the dish, but I have network connectivity and while playing around I have seen some spontaneous reboots that look phone-related of all things:

    1.2 doesn't have appropriate patches for 6.4a. Poke around the other forum and you'll find those values easily enough.

    I now suspect my attempts to update 1.2 to 1.17 were incorrect and the patches didn't all work correctly. That's why I modified superpatch 6.2a to use the values for 6.4a and changed the conditional test. It appears to have installed and executed properly. We shall see in the next week or so...

    Another issue could be the kernel. I haven't checked to see which the Zipper installs. Look in the S2 area of the other forum and you will see a reply to me which states that 6.4a is stable, dependent on kernel version. That could also be a factor.

    For now, the possible culprits I have are:
    usb drivers
    kernel build
    superpatch
    unknown

    Thanks, I lazily followed the superpatch info from mastersav.com and must have missed something so I'll check out ddb. I've been using kernel version 7.2.2-oth-K1 but can go back to 3.1.5 if need be.

    TWP reports my kernel is 2.4.20. Zipper takes care of LBA48.

    Let's assume the system is finally stable. What benefit would there be to using a higher kernel?

    FWIW: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=331394 discusses some 8.1 reboot issues.

    my uptime is 1d2h (must have rebooted itself) so we wait and see what happens. TWP's report of TiVo time is static. What's the use of that?

    Any idea how to get system updates to show in the TWP todo list? I thought they were visible but maybe that is only on-screen.

    The proper kernel version is 2.4.20 for TiVo software versions 3.1.5 and 7.2.2, which are both "vulnerable" to the killhdinitrd utility. I believe the 2.4.20 kernel from the 3.1.5 software release is what is included with the LBA48 CD "with Enhancements", but I've never used it and just manually run killhdinitrd on the virgin kernels instead. Apparently, there is some sort of licensing deal with DVRupgrade where you can't share killhdinitrd kernels, but it is legit to share virgin kernels and then run killhdinitrd on them yourself (there are known md5 hashes of the virgin and hacked kernels to verify what you have is legit).

    I can't get to ddb either. Frustrating...

    I patched the superpatch from 1.2 to 1.15 and my logs look much better now. Apparently I took the 1.2 comment "for all known 6.x and 7.x versions" at face value without considering that 6.4a wasn't released when that statement was made. :eek:

    Didn't realize you updated your post.

    The 7.2.2 kernel has native dhcp support, which 3.1.5 does not. There may be other fixes in there too, but not sure of what they are.

    The reboot could be normal. I chose the "I want a phone line plugged in" option when running tweak.sh for callerid functionality and I still have a couple of soft reboots scheduled in my crontab:

    Code:
    # Run safereboot, so reboot only happens when nothing is recording.
    25 9 * * 1,4 echo "`date` SCHEDULED REBOOT"; tivosh /enhancements/safereboot.tcl >> /var/log/cronlog-main
    Don't know what you mean about system updates to show in the TWP todo list though... :confused:

    I pulled the power and did a cold boot. TWP menu is condensed and all worked, including creating SPs and Wishlists.

    Then I used mfsadd to add a second drive and the system won't get past the "powering up" screen. Ran mfsadd on the drives again and it reports everything is proper. Remove power from the second drive and it continually reboots (maybe because it can't see drive 2?)

    I don't care about CallerID and the unit is normally far away from any phone jack.

    IIRC, Sleepered units would display entries in the ToDo list for updating scheduling information. I don't see that with Zipper. I didn't mean to imply OS updates. Sorry about the confusion.

    Got a bunch of logos from web sites to add. Need to get palette ordering corrected.

    Now I'm wondering about the second drive problem with the kernel. The system has to boot up and get running before the second drive is added, right? I'll try from scratch again and add the drive after initial boot and before tweak.sh. Annoying, to say the least.

    Don't know about mfsadd with a second drive. In spite of all of the upgrades I've done over the years they have always been single drive.

    FWIW, I'm now running my zippered HDVR2 with 6.4a in "production" with a 7.2.2 killhdinitrd kernel. I haven't bothered with mfs_ftp or tyftp at this point, but I did configure dhcp for the heck of it. So far the logs are clean and stability is good.

    Seems my hunch about mfsadd post-Zipper might be correct:

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=9244757

    Code:
    I would use mfs tools to set up the drives and make sure they are working then Zipper the "A" drive.
    Use the Zipper ISO to install 6.4a on drive A. Boot and get it running. mfsadd to add drive B. Boot and get it running. Zipper. Testing that now.

    Well, that was a bust. I tried a 300 and a 400, both of which will function as the A drive. Could I get a B? No. Used the Zipper to get the A going. mfsadd claimed to work and gave a space rating but then the TiVo never got past the starting up screen. I wonder if the mfslive utils will work properly.

    The 400 is the A and I don't have any others. A single 400 which works is better than 400+300, 300+400 or 300+300 which won't work. I've got multiple 300s and another S2 DTiVo which I'd like to use Thanksgiving-Christmas if dual-drive Zipper will work.

    Do want to get mfs_ftp and/or tyftp going. SATA storage is half the price of IDE now so pulling streams via FTP and deleting en masse is attractive. The main benefit to on-box storage, for me, are shows with many repeats. I like to get duplicates and trash the smaller ones. Scripting FTP retrieval and automagically moving smaller copies of the same episode to a potential deletion area would be nice. Don't want auto-delete because it takes human eyes to verify a recording is good.

    I had my first issue with my zippered HDVR2 after about about 1 day and 8 hours of uptime. Last night I was messing around with TiVoWebPlus (zipper stock version v2.1.b2) and had my browser lock up when looking at the kernel log. After that, twp was no longer accessible (but the process was running) and I could still telnet in and the TiVo functionality was working fine.

    I woke up this morning to a gray screen and telnet no longer worked, so I pulled the plug and checked the logs when it came back up. I could see from the cron heartbeat logfile that the system seemed to lock up around the time I went to bed, but there were no errors to speak of. I upgraded twp to v2.1.b3 for the heck of it and will continue to monitor the situation...

    FWIW, I've got the cover off my DTiVo and replaced the fan with a Vantec ThermoFlow. Thought it would be a good idea to remove heat as a variable.

    I've got 5 hours of uptime, 1 daily update and 1 weekly call stubbed.

    Could the issue be the 2nd daily update?

    Other forum is visible again. Maybe the solution really is to use 8.1 kernel and -8 USB drivers.

    Also seeing lots of OOB packets and audio dropouts. DTV said there are issues with my locals but just saw this on a GAC show. Wonder if there is system-wide trouble.

    TWP System | Configure has a toggle to show service updates in the ToDo list. Default is off.

    EndPadPlus is coming up a little short so want to set it for 5 minutes on both sides. Modified etc/rc.d/rc.sysint.author so endpadplus is now 5 min both ways.

    Still seeing wide TWP menu and can't make SPs or WL from it. Pretty sure that gets fixed after second night of updates.

    Interesting, does the chainloading technique work with the zipper? This post by zoro255 (link) led me to believe that a typical zipper install could be stable with 6.4a.

    Don't know if chainloading is necessary. I'm running "stock" Zipper with 6.4a superpatch. NOT using -8 drivers right now.

    I'm not sure what need there is for those 90 second delays. The default is working for me. Then again, maybe there is something on startup with 6.4a after a little while. I'll edit my author again to add those delays just in case. 3 minutes is longer than 30 seconds but if it keeps things stable...

    I also found SP and SL creation worked once I used the TiVo remote to make a WL on-screen. Seem to recall that from every other rebuild I've done over the years, too.

    Wondering about backing up TWP config because manually removing stations, creating SPs and WLs, etc. is time consuming for each rebuild.

    I was just able to freeze up my HDVR2 by trying to ftp logs from it by doing an mget with wildcards. :( Hopefully that is due to a limited ftp server implementation and is not indicative of another problem.
