    I went to update the enhancement scripts, after it updated I no longer can access TivoWebPlus, I enter the Tivo's IP address in my PC but no TWP menu is displayed, I can MRV and I can telnet, so I know the USB adapter is working and my DTivo receiver is networked, what can I do to solve the problem? thank you

    Is TWP running? I had a similar problem. I had TWP installed in the /var/hack directory. After I ran the script, it installed TWP in /TivoWebPlus and added the start-up command in rc.sysinit.author. This caused conflicts as I also had it starting in /var/hack/TivoWebPlus.

    The result was it didn't run at all. So, I killed the new directory, the /var/TWP directory and the start-up commands and life is good.

    Maybe this is your problem, too! :confused:

    To see it it's running, enter
    Code:
    ps | grep tivoweb

    Try running it with
    Code:
    tivoweb console
    and see if any errors come up.

    ok I tried this and I have TWP back on my PC, hopefully the DTivo won't reboot anymore, thanks for the help


    now a new problem, I used WinMFS to copy from my old 250GB drive to this 400GB drive, when I go to TEP info page, the drive reads Total Space 379935 MB 100.0% 287:50:56 while my other DTivo receiver's drive reads Total Space 379933 MB 100.0% 380:46:30, how could that be? both drives are the same(Seagate 400GB)?


    still rebooting as I speak, is it possible that I can re-format the 400GB drive? I lost all the recordings anyway, thanks

    I couldn't locate my serial cable, so had to order another one. It should arrive Monday and I'll run the commands you mentioned.

    Stay tuned - and thanks for the help. :up:

    Got the cable today and here is the first command and results:

    bash-2.02# tivosh /enhancements/net-status.tcl
    Tmk Assertion Failure:
    FsAllocateFunction, line 159 ()

    Paste the following into a shell to get a backtrace...

    The Tivo is restarting now, so I'll see what happens next.

    Hmm.. seemed to get stuck at the "What is Password" screen so I rebooted and let it go further. Finally got back to another serial prompt and ran the second line, which produced somewhat similar results:

    bash-2.02# /tivowebplus/tivoweb console
    bash-2.02# Tmk Assertion Failure:
    FsAllocateFunction, line 159 ()
    Tmk Fatal Error: Thread tivosh <274> strayed!

    Going to reboot again and then look around a little bit more...

    Tried restarting tivoweb and it just causes another reboot. The Tivo is getting a DHCP address, and I can still get to serial bash - but something is pretty messed up.

    JavaHMO functionality is working (pictures, music) - I'm getting ping responses but still no telnet functionality.

    One more thing when I go to the NPL, I get:

    "Programs cannot be transferred from the Bedroom DVR to the D676 DVR because the D676 DVR is not enabled for transfers"

    UGH!

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    This means the tivoapp is not patched.

    This happens because you need to export some variables in your author file.

    export TIVO_ROOT=
    export MFS_DEVICE=/dev/hda10

    Thanks Rbautch.

    In the previous two posts, can I re-patch Tivoapp and export like you mentioned from the serial bash prompt? (curious why I have to do this again - its been awhile since this Tivo was hacked "old school" (no enhancement script, no zipper).

    I updated to the latest enhancement scripts through uninstall re-install method but when I enter my DTivo IP address to display TWP, I get nothing, I have to use the following method in order to display TWP on my PC, what can I do to have TWP displayed on my PC without having to do the above methods? thanks

    DTV RCA DVR40
    InstantCake distribution version 6.2a-01-2-321
    PTVnet
    Linksys USB200M v 2.1

    Installed "tweak.sh" today, including the updated USB drivers. Seemed to install OK, but lost USB network support after reboot.

    I have successfully connected to my Tivo via serial cable and ran "tweak_uninstall.sh". Uninstall ran successfully. Didn't have telnet until I ran onscreen setup of phone, TCP/IP, then selected automatically select IP address, then chose no dhcp client. I immediately had MRV again.

    Trouble is I installed enhancement script multiple times with same result, USB adaptor wouldn't work. Even tried install without installing Jamie's USB drivers, still not difference. I really like what's included in it, still want to get USB working.

    Any thoughts?

    I have seen this problem, as well, except when using the Trendnet adapter. I've reported it to Russ and I know he is working on a fix for it so that it is safe to use tweak.sh on straight PTVnet configured kit installs with no issues.

    What adapter are you using? I've been unable to duplicate the problem using my TrendNet and Netgear adapters. Thanks for your patience. I'll figure this out soon.
