    Thanks rbautch! Your script ran flawlessly on my RCA DVR40. One mistake I made was saying "yes" to installing the network speed checker, when in fact, I do not have another networked Tivo. I just gave the script a "made up" IP address when I realized what I had done. I am assuming this is OK and should affect anything.

    Once again, thanks a bunch!

    Sounds like something is wrong with your network settings. How did you set your default gateway?

    OK, well I got things running finally. Seems I made a simple mistake and entered my external ip address instead of my router address (192.168.xxx.xxx)
    It still didn't work when I manually edited my resolv.conf file, but I re-ran the Zipper on the drive and entered the proper ip's there, and when I ran the newest script the first time, voila! It downloaded the new files.


    Thanks for everyone' s help

    out2osd - leaving zombies.

    Starting to notice a pattern with running the caller id stuff.. Seems that it's spawn of out2osd is done in such a way that it's leaving zombie processes around on the tivo box. Here's a sample from (ps aux):
    Code:
      303 root        460 S   ./ncidd
      304 root       1948 S   tivosh ./tivocid --no-gui --call-prog --program /var/
      306 root       1948 S   tivosh ./tivocid --no-gui --call-prog --program /var/
      307 root       1948 S   tivosh ./tivocid --no-gui --call-prog --program /var/
     1458 root       3040 S   tcphonehome
     1664 root      11564 S   myworld
    [B] 8050 root            Z   [out2osd][/B]
    11829 root       2420 S   tivosh /var/hack/tivowebplus/httpd-tt.tcl
    
    This only appears to be caused by out2osd processes spawned by the ncid stuff. While not a major problem, really, it's annoying. I'm going to try and find the source for ncid and see if I can figure out whats going on.

    BTW, from my linux machines "man ps":

    I get the same result when entering "ffind joe" at the bash prompt. How would i go about running your ammended script. I used the zipper with the script that came included.

    Run the uninstall script (hacks/tweak_uninstall.sh), then run the script that's attached to the first post of this thread.

    Still having issues with crond running with zippered HR10-250. Typing PS at bash prompt shows crond is running. But it isn't rebooting like it should.
    What log should I check to see what is going on with crond?

    tsunami, don't mean to stomp on your thread here, but am wondering if you had any problems with HR10-250? I can not get mine to Zipper (hack) properly. I am thinking that it may be the image I am using. I don't think I have a 6.2 image file at all. I may have to go to the other place a beg one.

    I can't use the same image as I use for my HDVR2 Tivos, can I?

    Well you can't use 6.2, it doesn't work with the HR10. You have to use the version that is already on it. 3.15 or something like that.
    With the exception of no reboot all is well with it.

    I have been reading this thread and many of the others for several weeks and am going to hack my Humax DRT800 and also upgrade to a QuickView 300GB drive.

    I will probably acquire InstantCake and at the same time install the hacks.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I am fairly techno oriented and have worked with Linux in the past. I have also read and downloaded the free upgrade software from the site. Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated from you techno-wizards.

    Thanks and Have a blessed Christmas/Chanukah.

    Ooppss didn't see the reboot comment. What do you mean with the exception of no reboot?

    Unless you have physically replaced the PROM on your Tivo, it cannot be hacked with the Zipper. See here.

    Try to troubleshoot it systematically by installing the hacks one by one to narrow down what the offender is. Start by selecting "no" to the usb 2.0 driver installation. You could also not run tweak.sh at all, and just reboot to see if some part of the Zipper is causing the non-boot.

    There is a series of cron troubleshooting posts relatively early in this thread.

    I successfully Zipper'ed and tweak'ed my Philips DSR708 yesterday. My sincere thanks to Gunnyman and rbautch for an early Christmas present!!

    Now I'm digging further into the details on just what I've done to myself. :) On the first post to this thread, item 3. says "See the readme for the full list of aliases installed." Can I get a pointer to the location of the readme? I've looked in tweak.zip, /hacks, and /enhancements and can't seem to find it.

    Thanks again!

    More info on this... the "client" portion of the NCID stuff is actually a shell script that re-spawns itself three times as a tivosh (tcl) script. That script uses 'exec' to spawn out2osd with a trailing "&" (which, in the unix world, usually means to spawn and detach.) I'm not sure how this works in the tivosh shell...

    More info coming eventually...

    It's usually in the /enhancements directory. (Maybe I forgot to stick it in there on a previous version). Also attached.
