    First you have to be able to navigate directories...can you do that at a command propmpt in Windows?? Linux is very similar except you use / instead of \.

    So, you need to go the directory where tweak.sh lives: cd /enhancements

    Then, run dos2unix on the file: dos2unix tweak.sh

    then, run the script: ./tweak.sh

    After a bit of tinkering, I got it all to work. Both HR10-250s d/led with no problems. Again, great script. The only addition I would make would be the increase buffer hack.


    Thanks for your help,

    There is also the issue where it wants to reboot on a regular basis. The only reason I can see that you would want to do this is if you don't sync the time on the box using the ntpdate command regularly. It is part of the normal call processing.

    The fakecall osd is annoying since it shows up in my prime viewing time.

    How do you position the readout for NCID? Its at the top of the screen but about half cut off.

    Edit /var/hack/etc/out2osd.conf You should find "set line = 1" commented out. Remove the # and change the value to a different line. I found that I like it set to 12.

    Thanks austin. I was looking for a way to add "blank" lines instead of just increasing the number. It works great. Tranparency is cool as well. It was worth hacking the HD-Tivo for this feature alone.

    rbautch: do your showcases menu item on directv central switch from "Showcases & TV Guide" to "Showcases" after running sc62add.tcl?

    if i go into NPL and then press the directv button and keep switching between the two, it will toggle from "Showcases & TV Guide" to "Showcases"

    My script only sets the tokens to signal DirecTV to download showcase slices to your tivo. How that affects the tivo interface is not something I've messed with.

    Where in the scripts does it permanently enable 30 second skip? We got rather used to ff'ing through commercials and using the tick-to-end.

    Thanks.

    if its tick to end you want, how about while fast forwarding you press the skip button to go to every tick. it will only take you a few skip button presses to get to the end.

    Yes it works. "Need" is something you should determine for yourself. Look at the first post of this thread, and determine if you want those things.
