    I can understand and agree with the desire to minimize running apps, but I don't think it's wise to stop telnet... it's got quite a small footprint and is quite robust, whereas there are MANY things that can go wrong with TWP.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Rbautch, I wouldn't want tohave them not start at all, as if something goes wrong with TWP I wouldn't be able to get in to fix it. If I have them shut down an hour after a reboot then if TWP crashes I can just reboot and be able to Telnet and FTP in to see what's going on. Also, could you give me the entires I need to make into crontab/root to do this? Thanks!

    I don't know what the cron entires would be. It's easy to start things in cron, but not easy to stop them without knowing the pid. I suppose you could pipe the output of ps to grep and then sed/awk/cut your way into the appropriate command for the crontab, but I've never messed with that. There's probably an easier way.

    I went through the "Tivo Zipper" script using a cake image.

    I installed everything on a new seagate 200 GB. The system boots up correctly and I can record/watch tv again. The problem is that the dhcp isn't working. I used the recomended USB Netgear FA120 ethernet nic. Did I miss something.

    Can somebody try and assist me with this problem. I'm tring to have my tivo update over the network since I have a VOIP phone system. This is the only way to get my tivo to update without dragging my tivo to a friends house.

    NIC: Netgear FA120 Ethernet USB
    Tivo: Direct TV RCA 40gb
    HD: Seagate 200gb

    system Info says:
    Platform: Series2
    Soft Version: 6.2-01-2-321 (cake build)
    record capacity: up to 176 hours

    Did you check your router to see what IP was assigned to your tivo? You shouldnt be updating over the network service or anywhere else now that your Tivo is hacked.

    If you "Zippered" the unit you do not need, or probably, want the unit to connect to Tivo.

    After running the script, I have terrible USB throughput to my Linksys 200M. My rc.sysinit.author file reads (partially):

    #!/bin/bash
    #load usb and ethernet modules
    insmod /lib/modules/usbcore.o
    insmod /lib/modules/ehci-hcd.o
    insmod /lib/modules/ax8817x.o
    sleep 15

    #configure Linksys
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.75 broadcast 192.168.0.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
    sleep 60

    From the "other" site, they show:

    insmod /lib/modules/ax8817.o
    insmod /lib/modules/usbcore.o
    insmod /lib/modules/usb-ohci.o
    insmod /lib/modules/usbnet.o

    as being correct.

    What changes should I make. A certain program is showing .3 meg/sec as throughput.

    you may want to check with "top" to see if the tivo is busy doing something else (indexing, etc). The usbnet.o is superfluous in that ax8817.o is a link to it.

    The Linky 200M may be the culprit. I was getting about the same numbers you're reporting when using the 200M. I switched to the Netgear FA120 and my throughput improved over 300%.

    I couldn't reorder the programs I was trying to merge, either. It looks like reorder. js is not installed in the tivowebplus directory with the latest script. At least it wasn't on my 3 units. I had "reorder.js" on my pc from an older version of TWP. I ftped it into the TWP folder and now I can change the order of the programs I am trying to merge.

    Sorry if this has already been discussed...

    I'm using a HR10-250 and a Netgear FA-120 USB network adaptor. I elected to install the USB 2.0 drivers when I ran this script. (By the way this script rules!) Anyway, no more USB adaptor after the reboot--no power on it at all.

    I pulled the drive and copied the backup version of the network driver back to the /lib/modules directory, still no joy. Any suggestions to get me back online?

    Thanks!

    If you copied the original drivers back from the /lib/modules/backups-orig directory, the problem is that when you copy the ax8817x.o driver, it doesn't overwrite the symlink that the script put there. So, pull the drive again and delete the ax8817x.o symlink first, and then copy the original driver back from .../backups-orig. Not sure why the USB2.0 drivers didn't work in the first place. Did the script correctly identify your Tivo model and kernel when it first ran? Also check for a file archive in the /lib/modules directory called drivers2.4.x.tgz. What is "x" in the filename?

    unfortunately I got cute and uninstalled the script after being unsuccessful. Then I rewrote my rc.sysinit.author file to its original settings. Still no network. I can't figure out whats wrong with it now. I'm thinking of re-imaging the drive and trying this all from scratch. Any suggestions?

    The uninstall script should have restored the orignal drivers, and unless you were working with an older script version, it should have taken care of overwriting that symlink. Did you reboot after you ran the uninstall script? If not, try that. Looks like the correct driver archive was indeed copied to your /lib/modules directory. Since it's still there, try untarring manually with:

    Code:
    tar -zxvf drivers2.4.20.tgz
    and then
    Code:
    ln -s /lib/modules/usbnet.o /lib/modules/ax8817x.o
    ...and then reboot. If still no luck, then just re-image it.

    This is interesting-

    I reloaded my original rc.sysinit.author file and got the network back up and running (with the original network drivers having been already copied back over earlier).

    I re-applied the script, this time selecting NO for the USB 2.0 drivers. The network is again gone. Any idea why? I would think that it would leave things alone when the USB2.0 system is bypassed...

    Pull the drive, and restore your old author file, but save the modified author file somwhere safe. Telnet back in to the tivo, and then post the modified author file here.

    After about two weeks, my yellow stars finally disappeared. Showcases still appear in the menu, but now just say "Showcases", not "Showcases and TV Guide".
