    Try re-downloading the file, then try a different computer if you can. If that fails, try the attached version of the uninstall script, which just runs without asking you if you want to run it first. Can someone ese test out the uninstall script for me? I tested it extensively before my entire house got fried from a power surge yesterday. :mad:

    When I run the install script it seems to ignore my responses, i.e. "Do you want to install Channel Logos [yes/no]". When I type yes, it responds with "skipping logo installation". Also as the script runs a little farther it doesn't allow the time to respond before skipping TWP installation.

    I have run dos2unix on the script, downloaded a couple of times, checked with vi, and don't see any dos line endings.

    I'm a newb so I probably doing something simple wrong.

    rbautch thanks for the script..hope to get working soon...and good luck recovering from your power surge.

    This is what is happening on my rca. I finally got it uninstalled last night. The script you gave without asking questions worked fine. I went to reinstall and it did the same thing again. Just skips over the Tivoweb question.

    I had no problems installing on a Phillips and has been working great the last 2 days, I just can't get it working on the RCA.

    Great JOB. This utility gets added to my "must use" list!

    Now, for the unasked for request...how about adding the backported USB drivers for increased transfer speed and how about installing tserver at the same time?

    Once again...Great job

    The USB drivers are an excellent idea. I'll add it to the next version if I can get permission from the guy who did all the hard work to backport them.

    It may be something peculiar about your Telnet session. If I Telnet from my laptop, I actually have the same problem as you, even on a 4 line test script, but it seems to work from every other computer I try it on. Pearkel, if the only thing you need is the TWP installation, just extract the TWP folder from the archive and FTP it to your Tivo. I may create a version of the script that doesn't ask any questions.

    If anyone is still having trouble with the prompts for user input, try out this version which has the prompts removed. Again, this will install everything without asking. Just replace the /enhancements/start.sh script with the one attached and run it. Don't run tweak.sh, run start.sh. I haven't tested this, so use at your own risk.

    This isn't the best forum, Google for jjbliss* and visit the forum that is the top results. SEARCH and READ A LOT before asking questions, they are vicious to newbies asking questions that have already been answered.

    I'd say that thanks to a few guys who really don't mind helping others out, this forum - in this section - IS getting to be a place to learn to hack your TIVO.

    There even seems to be one or two folks who frequent the other place that have stopped by to lend a hand.

    Props to those who deserve it. :)

    rbautch-

    My comp has trouble running the uninstall script correctly...is there another way to only uninstall the cron part? I want to keep the rest...

    Also, I can't get tivowebplus to start on boot...what should I check for?

    Are you using the telnet agent built into windows XP SP2- its adds an extra return which can muck up scripts
    If you are to get rid of he extra return do this:
    Start--->Run, type in "cmd" the return
    type in "telnet" then return
    type in "unset crlf" then return
    To connect to your box type in "o ipaddressofyourtivo" then return

    see if that works for you

    Follow the link to Gunnyman's guide. That should put you well on your way.

    It's worked out great for me and my 3 DTivos.

    rbautch,

    Just confirming your suspicion about the telnet session, I booted my PC into Suse (had been in XP) and ran telnet session from there and your script worked flawlessly.

    Everything is installed. Now I just have to play around with it for awhile.

    First try dos2unix on the uninstall script. Then try using a different telnet clent (I prefer Telnet98), or the procedure jjz described above (thanks jjz!). If that doesn't work, I'll walk you through a manual uninstall process. After you get it uninstalled, reinstall it, and it should append your rc.sysinit.author file to run TWP on boot. Keep us posted.

    You hit the nail on the head, jjz. I can confirm that running telnet from XP SP1 is fine, but from XP SP2 causes problems. I'm going to add your suggestion above to the instructions. Thanks!!
