    JW you are correct
    Note that if you have an HR10-250 tivo, neither of these tools is required Superpatch or set_mrv_name

    Are you sure it's not just taking it's sweet time? To get past it for now, run the Zipper like this:
    Code:
    /cdrom/zipper nobackup

    Not required, but useful if you want to disable encryption, enable 30-sec skip, etc..

    Superpatch hasn't been officially updated in quite a while. You need to patch it for use on any dtivo sw version higher than 6.2. See ddb. This question has been asked and answered there quite a few times recently.

    I've got a Samsung Sir-4040 DirecTiVo that I've upgraded with a larger hard drive (500 GB). That parts wiorking fine. I also installed networking using the PTVNet cd. I was able to see TWP thru my browser. I no longer can browse to the TiVo but, using Look@Lan, it says the TiVo is online. When I attempt to browse to the TiVo, the browser just times out. Could my /var directory have gotten overwritten?

    So I decided to use the Zipper because it looks better to me than what I used before. Using The Zipper TiVo Hack Script v4.0, I pulled the drive and attempted to boot the Zipper disk from cd that the script told me to make. It boots up with PTVNet prompts instead of the Zipper scripts that I expected. Should the prompt be PTVNet (not exartly sure what it said but this is close)? When I input mount /dev/hdb /cdrom, I get an error. I don't remmeber what it said.

    I didn't put an image on the Zipper cd because I was using a drive that I just wanted to add networking to and keep my recordings.

    Does anyone know from this information what could have gone wrong? If more information is required, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Porter

    Sounds like you used the wrong boot CD from DVRupgrade. Follow the link in the instructions to download the correct boot CD. The prompt should not be PTVnet, but I would expect a PTVnet CD would still be able to mount your cdrom drive.

    PTVnet is an alternate way of hacking your tivo that is mutually exclusive of the zipper. If you follow the PTVnet instructions from DVRupgrade, you should be able to hack your tivo without using the Zipper at all.

    I thought I used the $5 boot cd that the instructions called for. I know I paid $5 for it. I thought that I'd followed the link in the instructions. I'll check that.

    I wanted to use The Zipper because of the extra goodies that the other way doesn't offer.

    Thanks for your reply. I'll check things more closely next time. Maybe I did make a mistake but I just don't see how.

    We'll see.

    Thanks,
    Porter

    Hey guys,
    I have been a user of the zipper for quite some time. I have done my HR10 and my RCA DVR80. This was done back when the zipper was at version 1.7 I think.
    Anyway, I got a wild hair this past weekend and wanted to upgrade with the latest tweak.sh file so it would update the TWP and add the gotomydvr stuff.
    I was able to log into my tivo and run the uninstall_tweak.sh file, but now I get the dreaded "cannot download file" . I tried to reboot and now I cannot even log into my tivo.
    I know I have a serial cable somewhere :confused:
    Is that my next option? Once I get logged back in, How do I fix the internet connection?
    I could see the tivo from my HD tivo before I rebooted, so I know it was on the network ok, just not getting to the internet.
    Any info would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Randy

    If you're able to, instead of downloading the script from the tivo, you can download it onto your computer, then FTP it over to the tivo and run the script.

    See this reference on the Zipper Wiki here: Update the enhancement script (tweak.sh) failed

    Note - instead of downloading the zipper and unzipping, you can also download the script from the 1st post of this thread.

    If you're unable to FTP or telnet in, then I can't help you.

    Thanks for the reply..I did try that and it still tried to download the latest script. I guess I am going to have to pull the drive and re-zipper.
    Thanks again,
    Randy

    Try doing a dos2unix on the file you ftp'd over. If it gets the dos line endings in the file that would fubar the file for your tivo.

    When you run tweak.sh, do you run it from the /hacks directory or do you type the whole path to like
    Code:
    sh /hacks/tweak.sh
    ???

    If you type the whole path, instead try cd'ing to /hacks the run tweak.

    I've tried the free ptvlba48-4.04DD.iso and the $5 one. No luck with either. Which one should I use?

    I am using the following guide in my attempt to get the Zipper onto my DirecTiVo:
    http://www.dvrplayground.com/article/13683/

    Looking at what the directory on the final zipper cd should look like and what my cd looks like, I've noticed that they're completely different. Mine seems to be using the 8.3 file naming instead of long file names. The directory is below. I've burned the image with XP and Vista using Nero Express and with Windows Explorer in Vista. The first folder in the directory is ~0.LIV. The other folders and files are similar. Is this my problem? How do I get the image to burn correctly?

    [​IMG]

    I've been trying for 20 minutes to post an image of my zipper cd directory but, obviously, I can't figure it out. I hope that the above information will suffice.

    Can someone please tell me how to fix this? Am I using the correct ptvlba48 cd? Why won't my zipper cd burn correctly? Should I be using the guide that I'm using? If not, would some send me the link of the most up to date Zipper guide?

    Thanks for the help. It is appreciated.
    Porter

    If this question has been asked and answered allready - please forgive me..... but - I just bought a brand new Tivo HD. I would love to be able to telnet into it and see whats going on. Are the hacks for the series 2 devices compatible with the HD box..... or should I wait for new scripts/hacks? Also - can you add a console port to a HD box?

    Thanks!!

    You'll need a PROM mod before you can do anything. Telnet works, and I believe you can modify your box for a serial console for troubleshooting. Some hacks are compatible, but most probably still require some updating.

    This is the CD you want. The most up to date guide is always in the instructions here. Try adding your directory image as an attachment, rather than an embedded image.
