    Please post a link to 3.0. The only links I can find are to the earlier version, or do I ust rerun it and it downloads it?

    When the script is running, it says existing profile detected, do you want to append new aliases?

    I've run the script in the past, then run the tweak uninstall script, then run the tweaks script a second time. Should I say yes to append new aliases or not? Are the aliases which change the various commands to short names like rw removed when the tweak uninstall script is run?

    I am wondering if each time I run the tweak script are aliases re-added or not?

    Likewise when it asked if I have Tivo Web previously installed. I've only run your scripts after running the zipper to get bash prompt to work. If I added Tivoweb which the tweak script, then run uninstall tweak, is tivo web still there? How should the quesiton "has Tivo Web previously been installed to be answered when running an updated version of tweak script?

    What software version do you have? Did the script correctly identify your Tivo as HR10-250? Did it correctly identify your software? Navigate to /busybox and run ciphercheck, then post the results. Ver 3.0 is attached to the first post of this thread. Is that the one you used?

    I did not use ver 3.0 attached at the beginning of this thread. The one I used did ID the receiver as the HR10-250. I have to go to work now but I will run the new script as soon as I get home.

    OK, I have no patience so I decided to go to work a little later and try this now. It works great!. It recognized the software and the HR10-250. The 30 skip and sorting of the now playing list was functioning without having to activate them. Everything works great. Thank you so much for doing this. It makes using my Tivo receivers much more enjoyable. Caller ID is the best.

    Please let me know if there is anything else you want me to check or if there is any way I can help.

    If you run the uninstall script, it will restore a backup of the profile without the aliases. So it's ok to select that option every time you run the script.

    In the crontab section there is a question about rebooting or not. It asks if you use caller ID to say No to the reboot. Elsewhere it talks about rebooting twice a week so that the results of fake call can take effect and it won't call out. I use caller ID, wouldn't I still want the receiver to reboot twice a week? What are the pros and cons of this?

    I don't use any of the features in crontab, but I think I want it to reboot itself twice a week so that the results of fake call take effect. Should I run the crontab function?

    If TWP is running, does it use many resources? HD Tivo runs slow enough as it is. It seems that TWP doesn't run unless you go to that directory and start it. Is that true?

    rbautch - Do you have a list somewhere that names the items installed with your script? You have made an excellent product. Thanks

    The script doesnt ask you if you want to reboot or not, it asks if you want to force the reboots even if you are recording somehting. The reboots are scheduled for 3am, so I suggest forcing reboots if you leave a phone line connected. If you don't force reboots, they will only occur when nothing is recording at 3am (including suggestions). Not sure about TWP resources, but I suspect they don't use much unless your backing up season passes or caching channels in channelprefs.

    I took out the wget commands in the Zipper version of the enhancement script to make it simpler for newbie hackers.

    Well, i re-zippered, and then used the tools CD that had the previous enhancement script, and it looks like that worked.
    So now do I uninstall tweak then reinstall with the new script?

    I am trying to upgrade the script. I originally had a script dated 8/2/05. I ran the uninstall and it appeared to work.

    I then ftp the new script, ran dos2unix, ran the script
    and the script ran until it got this error
    This is a log of the script
    The script then went to the bash. I can't run the uninstall since it's not on the tivo.

    I can't re-run the script. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Ahh, that would be cool. How about an option to run tweak.sh to only re-install TWP without the /enhancements check in the case of /var getting wiped?

    Thanks for doing this BTW. I think I may have learned something by reading thru the scripts.

    Another idea (to save some BW) is to look for the rbautch-files.tgz in the root 1st and if it is not there then download - this would also help those people that for one reason of another cannot get it to download.
