    What's this "Limit 1 per household"?!?!?

    That's a great price, but going from 250 GB to 300 GB just to hack it, I don't know. I would have done the dual upgrade to 600 GB, though.

    Pricewatch shows 400 GB for about $213. I remember the outhouse having them for less than $200 at one time, and I think you could get 2.

    I got no errors running the script, but let me make doubly sure I'm using the correct busybox! That could well be it, I'm not 100% sure which busybox I used. I'll try your suggestions tonight. THANKS a million!!

    I have two HR10-250s and I picked up a spare drive at Circuit city on Saturday, $59.99 after rebate. If you want to send me the script I'd be happy to test it for you and report back.

    I made a new CD and ran the beta script for the HR10-250. It ran fine with no error message. The receiver boots up fine, but the USB ports do not appear to be working. There is NO power or activity light on the Netgear FA120. Do you have any suggestions or can I look at anything to see what is happening and let you know?

    I successfully ran HR10-250 Beta 1, but would be willing to test Beta 4. Is it possible to rerun Zipper without re-imaging the drive?
    I imagine Beta 4 addresses Nameserver. Does it attempt to address 30 sec and decrypt?

    Yes, yes, and yes. You may want to wait until beta5.

    Also, if I "patched" TivoApp (decrypt), do I need to restore Tivoapp.orig before applying Beta 5?

    WOO-HOO Beta5 for HD Tivo (HR10-250) WORKS GREAT!! Thanks so much. I only installed the Caller ID portion, but it looks like all the other things would work as well. The power and activity lights come on on the usb converter. I live with two teenagers and the phones is rarely for me.

    Thanks so much!

    Question for you, I've previously added a second drive to my HD Tivo. I installed the beta5 test on a separate 250gig drive that is not part of the two drive set. Now I want to run the scripts on the 2 drive set. I imagine that I only have to connect the A drive to the computer to run the zipper.sh script. Is that correct? When I put the A drive back into the HD Tivo, will is still "see" the second drive and work as a 63 hour HD Tivo? Or do I have to convert to a single drive setup and then add the second drive?

    Yes

    Yes.

    You may want to wait for beta6, which should have the kinks worked out for enabling the permanent 30-sec skip, removing encryption, enabling backdoors, and enabling menu sort.

    thx tsumani for the link to beta files I musta missed that post

    In order to use the Beta Hr file, do we need to just make sure alphawolf Tivotools folder is on our Tivo Tools CD or ?

    I'm wondering about this question:

    "Do you want weekly reboots to only occur if no programs are recording?
    Enter n if you plan to leave a phone line connected for callerID, etc [y/n]:"

    I do plan to leave a phone line connected for callerID, but I was thinking of setting up a bogus prefix like * so that the TiVo would never successfully call home even if it tried. That's easy to do in the regular TiVo menus, right? If I do this, do you think I can safely answer yes to the question above?

    I think that you must make a succesful call using any prefix for it to "stick" otherwise it reverts back to your old setting.

    I know there could be a suggestion recording, but that early in the morning seems a pretty safe time to allow a reboot. So, I answer N.
