    Mea culpa - you didn't forget. I cat'd readme.rtf, not noticing the file extension. Sorry about that.

    I am having a problem downloading on my HR10-250. My rc.sysinit.author has this in it:

    #configure Linksys USB200M
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.115 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.248.0
    sleep 60

    I have no problem telneting to the IP, but it refuses to d/l even when I enter the router IP.

    My router info is:

    Login Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP
    IP Address: 24.24.xxx.xxx
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.248.0
    Default Gateway: 24.24.xxx.xxx
    DNS 1: 66.75.164.90

    ANy help? Any other way to d/l the files?


    THANKS!

    HUGE


    PS - It worked fine on my DSR704 :)

    First, are you the HUGE of 4.01b RID guide fame? When it fails, does it give you the option to fix your DNS settings?

    Yes and yes :) I put in the router IP (192.168.1.1) and it does change the file, I checked. But it still does not work. Hmmm.....

    Try adding your router IP to the /etc/hosts file. If still no worky, download the script and files archive from the Zipper website.

    I just looked at the hosts file, it looks like this:



    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost




    Do I just change the 127.0.0.1 or add a new line?

    rbautch,
    Great job! Just out of curiosity, why did you decide to put the cron log (cronlog-main) in a folder under /var/spool/cron rather than with all the other logs (/var/log)? Was there a technical need for this?

    Again, thanks for the effort!

    It's been awhile, but I don't think there was any overiding reason other than to keep it with the rest of the cron stuff.

    Is it safe to run this script on a DSR7000 that was hacked using Instant Cake and PTVnet??

    Yes. The only conflict I've seen is with Tivowebplus, so you might delete the TWP folder that PTVnet installed and remove the startup command from the author file. If you search this thread for PTVnet, you should be able to find more info.

    If you put it in /var/log it could be browsed from the log browser in TWP.

    Just one comment, don't you need to define a default route to your router in your rc.sysinit.author file if you want to get outside your home network from the HDTiVo? Something like:

    route add default gw router_address

    (I'm not sure if that's exactly the proper syntax since I don't have access to my hacked HDTiVo at the moment). You should be able to verify that you've got external access by using the nslookup command if you've got AlphaWolf's all-in-one tools installed.

    This line is automatically added by the Zipper, but if you hacked your HR10 some other way, it might not be there. Maybe I'll add a sed check for "gw" and then append that line if it's not found.

    I did mine the old fashioned way I guess (manually) ... I need to read more about this zipper thing but I just wanted to get enough of an understanding to apply your enhancements first. Thanks for all the work!

    No love from either of my HR10-250's. I just used the d/l instead (which worked great). BTW- if it matters, they were both at 3.1.5. I never bothered to do the updates.

    Thanks, this script rocks.
