    Thanks, I got r done. Even had to figure out how to get the "edit" feature of vi figured out (insert key). And then had to figure out how to exit vi and save the changes. Got it done - took over an hour and about four different tries. I've probably hit thumbs down on my remote well over a dozen times today. Now to wait 3 more days to watch the results.
    Again, thanks for the help.
    And hopefully, this intercourse will assist others in making the change so they too can safely plug in their phone wire.

    I had some problems with the usb drivers on one of my tivo's. I've pulled the drive after having difficulties getting a bash prompt through a serial cable, but that's a different problem for a different day. I want to load the drivers manually. How do I load them, and how do I know which drivers to load?

    After doing some research on the Tivo that isn't working.. I found that there is no files in the /lib/modules directory.. just another directory called 2.4.4 which has a number of files and 2 directories.. 1 called pcmcia and another called kernel. I don't see any of this on my other tivo, which is working properly. Anyone have ideas? if I copy all the files out of the modules folder in my good tivo and copy them to the tivo that doesn't work, will it work?

    This will work. There should also be a /lib/modules/backups-orig directory that contains your original drivers. Also check to see if there is an archive called drivers2.4.4.tgz in your lib/modules directory. That archive contains the usb 2.0 drivers. Maybe it didn't get unpacked for some reason? Did you get any errors during the installation?

    Good observation :) Perhaps you should consider putting a Nano installation in your script. I've thrown it on my 3 Tivos, as I got sick of struggling with vi (which stands for Virtually Impossible, BTW) to do basic edits...

    bash-2.02# cd /var
    bash-2.02# tweak.sh
    : command not found
    : command not found
    .//tweak.sh: line 27: syntax error near unexpected token `elif'
    '//tweak.sh: line 27: ` elif [ "$tivoapp" = "e" ]; then

    The actual command is

    sh tweak.sh

    I don't know if there is something else wrong, but try that first.

    Even sh tweak .sh gave me the same error message can anyone else advise. Tivoweb plus no longer working after tweak adjustment.

    If you run the script it deletes rbautch-files.tgz, make sure it is in the directory with tweak.sh

    Any one have suggestions on Tivo, Vonage router, and Yac for caller id?

    You shouldn't but it won't hurt, should get no unique name error message.

    Did you install the Caller ID with the new script from rbautch? It works great with Vonage for me.

    Tsunami did you run your phone cord directly from the vonage router to phone jack on the back of your tivo?

    The latest version will run on all 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, and 7.x Tivos.
