    I am using an asterisk-based pbx system (PBX in a Flash) for my home phone system, and I'd like it to send caller id info to my enhanced Tivo. There is a writeup on setting up a system with MythTV, but I can't find anything with Tivo.
    Any help??

    I ran this script last night over my PTVnet install. I think I misunderstood one of the options. The option that asks if I would like to install USB2.0 drivers, I answered "NO" worried that it would put different drivers instead of the ones that PTVnet installed and I figured why fix what isn't broken. Well the script ran perfectly but on reboot I have no connectivity through my network.

    I am probably answering my own question but did I actually clear out all my previous drivers and by choosing "NO" did not install any new ones?

    My USB adapter is a Linksys USB200M. I can tell you that no (zero) lights are illuminated on the adapter now.

    Great script by the way!

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I have a Zippered unit whose VAR was wiped a couple of days ago. Everything came back just fine, except for my TWP settings. I have set up my own login and password, plus I have it on a specified port. All got reset, of course. I had changed the settings in the config folder in var, but couldn't find if there was a place in enhancements/varhacks for it.

    There's not. Anything you place in /var after the enhancement script is run is subject to deletion.

    I think there's some interactions between the PTVnet and this script that are causing the problems. I haven't had a chance to test it yet, but you can help troubleshoot it if you get your serial cable going. Please PM if you do..

    And the config file doesn't work with the symlinks, right? Like mfs_ftp?

    I can put a script in the startup files to copy a file over, I just didn't know if the enhancements script could do it.

    Thanks.

    I built my 500g tivo drive from a MFSLive image of my DVR-SD40(6.2),& PTVnet CD. Installed Superpatch in /ptvupgrade/superpatch/ ,& tservser in /ptvupgrade/bin/,& use tytools10r4 to extract --everything worked fine.I only have a slow dialup connection (no router or broad band)- read a lot of threads,-ran teak.sh ( after FTP tweak.sh & rbautch-tools.tgz (binary) to /var/hack/),- using XP comannd prompt-(did not overwrite PTVnet, installed static IP, with PC-IP as router address)-everything ran fine. Could access tivo with puttytel & filezilla, but could not open the updated TivoWebPlus,(could open twp 1.2.1),& when trying to access tserver with tytools-I would get connected (no bash prompt)-then get message: connection failed, did not get telnet bash prompt-check your settings.
    Didn't know where to go from there , so I ran tweak_uninstall & tivo is working as b4.
    1. Is there any way to run the script or individual parts without broadband connection?
    2. Should I delete the enhancements folder now?
    Would appreciate any help.
    thanks-rvnap

    I just installed tweak.sh over PTVnet. It done something to my drivers. Now my USB200M V2.1 isn't working. I am getting two indicator lights.

    Link/Act is steady on.
    10/100 is steady on
    FH is off.

    but no lights at the hub. It worked fine before. I am willing to try the serial debugging if anyone is willing to help me out. Also what is the pin designation to make a serial connector?

    Thanks in advance.

    with hyperterminal you can transfer files easily via zmodem.

    OK I have made a serial cable and got connected to the tivo with SecureCRT. From this point I have no idea what to do to get the USB200m 2.1 working again.

    I think I figured out what to do. I just cant find exactly how to do it. I want to edit /etc/hotplug/usb.map I havent found enough information showing me how to do it through tel-net. If anyone has a link or some instructions I sure would appreciate it.

    ThanI am finding alot of threads on the subject but they all dead end. This thread is exactly where I am now KrazyKevin

    I think I found a minor problem in one of the files included in the enhancement script. The version of Wipelogs appears to have incorrect crlf line endings on the third and fourth lines. It is not a major problem, but it's enough to keep it from working. If you run it from bash, you get an error but not when you run it from cron as most people seem to.

    It appears to have been in there for a while. I checked an old version from last August and it had the same error.

    I assume you mean through serial. From your serial bash prompt, I suggest first running /enhancements/tweak_uninstall.sh to get your tivo back to where it was before. This should get your networking back. If you're still interested in installing tweak.sh, and want to troubleshoot the interaction with PTVnet, then run tweak.sh again, and FTP the following files to your PC before you reboot:
    /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author
    /etc/hotplug/usb.map

    Now I'm confused. I've done that for YAC and mfs_ftp and it works fine. But what should I do for the config file for TWP? Do I create a folder called TWP, then a subfolder called config, then place the tivoweb.config file in there? So I'm not creating a symlink for the entire structure, just that one file.

    I guess that makes sense, I just hadn't done that for anything other than entire programs.

    Well I did the uninstall. After the uninstall I didn't get the networking back and I have lost bash prompt as well. I can connect to the tivo with secureCRT via serial but no bash prompt. When I plug a USB adapter into the tivo I get "usb.c: USB device 9 (vend/prod 0x2001/0x1a00) is not claimed by any active driver." at the cursor. but I can't type or get any other response.

    Any ideas?
