    Looks like no ip params are set. Try running net-launch.sh from serial bash, then reboot.

    After running tweak.sh after PTVnet, you should have seen the following: "No network parameters found in MFS." "You will be prompted to enter them now." For all PTVnet users, let me know if you saw this or not when running tweak.sh.

    I've ran "net-launch.sh" which I chose "d" for Dhcp, then reran "net-status.tcl" which looks like;

    bash-2.02# tivosh net-status.tcl

    The following IP parameters are now set in MFS:
    IP address is currently set to:
    Default gateway is currently set to: 0.0.0.0
    Subnet Mask is currently set to: 255.255.255.0
    DNS Server is currently set to: 4.2.2.2
    DHCP is on
    NO WIRELESS PARAMETERS ARE SET IN MFS

    bash-2.02#

    Then I rebooted, ran net-status again and it stays just as above. I then reconnected the Tivo to my entertainment system where it should be working, however still same result, no USB connectivity with no lights on the USB adaptor, I've verified that the adaptor is NOT the problem by swapping with other known working units, problem continues to be with this Tivo unit.

    USB driver(s) still seem to be the issue after enhancement script was run.

    I've ran tweak.sh after doing the PTVnet w/Instantcake 6.2a which was Superpatched with working MRV & HMO. I've attached the tweak install session and did not find any reference to "No network parameters found in MFS" anywhere in it.

    I reverted back to the old way I handled PTVnet installations, so it should be working again.

    I've ran the enhancement script (tweak.sh) again and I still have USB network function with all the latest enhancements (after restarting Tivo). Thanks, I'm good to go from here.

    How do I Execute the script tweak.sh ???
    Newbie here... I've been reading for 3 hrs and came up with nothing.
    I did hack the HR10-250 with zipper.
    I get to "bash-2.02#", but then I'm stuck.

    Wow, you're a great help ttodd lol.

    I think its my network adapter, cause its not on the list of good ones. I'll get a new one tonight and find out. I did get the script to work once this morning, but got the XP enhancement error. Every other time I try to run it, I get booted as soon as I type a letter or two after the bash.

    Put on a FA120 and got the same results. Putty closes as soon as I start typing after bash, or soon thereafter. If anyone else has seen this before, I'd appreciate the help.

    I have two zippered RCA series 2 DTV tivo's. I would like like to upgrade them to the latest ver 6.x. Would the latest zipper instructions do this for me?

    Do I need to pull the drives and reimage? This thread is so huge that some searches are frustrating!

    Sorry if this post is in the wrong place. I can't find a new post button, only replies.

    Zipper is not going to update your OS at all. Zipper just applies hacks or tools to the OS. There are seveal other threads on upgrading to 6.4. You can use getslice to download the slices then you will need the latest slicer to install them.

    I ran this script twice, it downloaded the current version, it works great, for except is does not do its weekly reboots. Is there something I can check? I answered correctly in the install script. I have a phone line plugged in for caller id, so reboots must occur. Any Ideas??

    Question...

    I've been getting the Hard Drive error message for some time now, and it seems to slow down loading of the menu. Though my HD was failing so I pulled it, backed it up to another drive and ran WD tools on it. With the full test 0 error were reported. What is the script seeing that the diagnostic tools are not? BTW, the cover is off my HR10-250 so it is not a heat issue

    Okay, I think i must be a complete moron, because I seem to be having difficulties with the most rudimentary portions of the tweak.sh install.

    I've got a couple tivos (HDVR2 and RCA DVR80) both ungraded with PTVNET. I've been trying the get the tweak.sh installed on the HDVR2 but have the following basic questions:

    1) What directory to I run the tweak.sh from on the tivo?
    2) Are there any mods to Ptvnet that need to be made before installing? Or can I just install tweak.sh right over Ptvnet? There were some mentioned earlier in this tread, but I'm not sure if they are necessary anymore. For what it's worth, Ptvnet is installed in /ptvupgrade (of which, TivoWebPlus is a subdirectory).
    3) I tried to run tweak.sh a couple times prior to posting these questions. I tried to run it from / and /var by typing the following "tivosh tweak.sh" Each time I get the following message:

    wrong # args: no script following "[ -d /enhancements ]" argument
    while compiling
    "if [ - d /enhancments ]"
    (file "tweak.sh" line 15")

    Thanks for the help for what I'm sure are very simple issues. It's been a LONG time since I've really messed around in linux, and I've really be fumbling my way around will playing with my tivos recently.

    Try

    Code:
    sh ./tweak.sh
    
    It should not matter where you put tweak.sh.

    I have tested it on the current versions of PTVnet (which actually include tweak.sh in /ptvupgrade/bin) running on 6.2a and 6.4a on SD boxes).

    Thanks for the help!

    So, when I install tweak.sh should I still need to delete my previously installed version of TivoWebPlus (that installed with Ptvnet in the /ptvupgrade/TivoWebPlus directory) or make any mods to the rc.sysinit.author to keep two keep instances of TivoWebPlus from running? This was mentioned in the first dozen or so pages of this thread, but I know there have been a lot of changes since then, and I haven't had any luck searching through the full 95 pages.

    Also, I did try "./tweak.sh" last night, but did use the "sh" before that. I'll give that a shot tonight. And finally, I purchased my copy of Ptvnet in mid September (SW-PTVNET-DL-321), but I don't think it has tweak.sh in the /ptvupgrade/bin directory. Not that it maters since it's readily available here...

    Thanks again! :)

    For some reason, I still can't seem to get the tweak.sh script to run. Every time I run the script, I get the following back:

    Code:
    bash-2.02#  sh ./tweak.sh
    : command not found
    ./tweak.sh: line 32: syntax error near unexpected token 'fi'
    '/tweak.sh: line 32: '              fi
    
    Since so many other folks have obviously already got this up and running, I doubt there's an issue with the script at line 32. What am I missing here? Do I need to add something to my $PATH to get the script to run from the current directory (running tweak.sh from /ptvupgrade/bin)?

    Thanks again!

    I love the script, but is there a way to have 6.4a items-like a deleted category and time of recording description, without having to upgrade to 6.4a?

    Finally got the script to run.

    My only issues now are that the name of the Tivo is not displayed at the top of the menus as show on page one of this thread. Also, the Menu Editor doesn't seem to work. I can't move anything around. I'd like to organize a menu similar to the screenshot on the first page of this script. Could these problems be because I appear to have two copies of TivoWebPlus installed (one in / and one in /ptvupgrade)?? How can I verify that only one is running? Other menu items such as NetConfig seem to show that the enhancement script worked as expected.

    As for my original issues:

    Turns out that the problem was a dos2unix issue. I was using the UltraEdit text editor to do the conversion, and apparently it wasn't working correctly. So I did a dos2unix on the script file on the tivo itself, and the script ran.

    However, I then started having CR/LF problems using the windows telnet app. I tried running using Putty but had the same issues. I finally figured out that I could run the windows telnet app in interactive mode by simply typing "telnet" with no host name. Then I typed "unset crlf". At that point I could do an "open hostname", and run the script.

    I've been chasing my tail a good bit, but I think I'm getting close. Now I need to get the script installed on my second Directivo.
