    Permanent 30-sec is enabled by the superpatch, which you either installed yourself or put on your tools disk as part of a Zipper installation. To disable the 30-sec skip you have to restore your old tivoapp, edit the superpatch file to delete the corresponding tivoapp patches, and then reapply the superpatch.

    Thanks. It came with a Zipper'ed install. At this point 30 second skip stays as what would need to be done to undo it is beyond my meager hacking skills (right now... :) ) I'll try the FF and skip combination.

    Russ,
    my Pioneer unit has 7.2.1 OS version, can I hack it with the enhancement script? does the unit need to have the Tivo subscription service to be able to use the scripts? thanks

    Everything SHOULD work.
    But YMMV since I don't have one of those units.

    well since I'm going to upgrade to a larger drive, if it doesn't work, can I just wipe out the scripts by re-imaging the original drive to the larger drive using the weaknees guide? thanks

    Hey guys,

    I'm getting terrible inter-Tivo throughput.

    T1: NetGear FA120 connected to WRT54G via Wire.
    T2: NetGear FA120 connected to WET54G bridge via Wire. WET54G connected via WPA to WRE54G, which is connected wirelessly to WRT54G.

    My network throughput via 'speed' oscillates between 0.05 and 1.8 Mbps. And the MRV transfers are VERY slow.

    /var/log/kernel seems to reflect USB 2.0 drivers are loaded.

    The slower machine to ftp from seems to be T2, but that's even testing from my laptop, which is also connected via the WRE54G...

    Any thoughts? This is crazily frustrating.

    Thanks,

    Marc

    You can enable and disable the 30 sec. skip feature through Tivo Web Plus. I haven't tried it, but it is an option under the HackMan Backdoor Codes heading.

    Doesn't work as far as I can tell (at least not on mine), I always have to do the remote keys to turn it off.

    Those are bad numbers. Sometimes rebooting everything on your network can clear up a problem. Also try pinging one tivo from the other, and look at the packet loss numbers. Are you using homemade cables/connectors?

    You need to simplify the setup to debug it. Try eliminating the WRE54G - even if you need to move the TiVo temporarily. What kind of performance does the Laptop attached to the WRE54G get when accessing the internet?

    Wireless repeaters can be tricky to set up. If all works well without it, then we'll know where to concentrate.

    Hey Guys,

    I'm new to the scene.

    I get the following when trying to run the script:

    Downloading latest Enhancement script...
    tweak.sh: wget: command not found
    Download failed. Adjust DNS and try again? [y/n]: n
    Make sure your Tivo is connected to the internet, and
    your network settings are correct. Exiting...
    rm: /enhancements: No such file or directory

    I downloaded the toolset for HR10-250 Tivos as the instructions sugguested but still no cookie.

    Any ideas?



    Thanks in advance.

    Did you ensure that your scripts have had the carriage returns stripped? There are many references in this thread to people having similar problems, which were remedied by running the dos2unix script or you can alternatively strip them out using sed or directly in vi, which is what I'd probably do.

    The fact that it's not recognizing the wget command means you probably did not add the /busybox directory to your PATH statement in your author file. Do that, reboot, and try again.

    I'm stuck here:

    bash-2.02#
    bash-2.02#sh tweak.sh
    Downloading latest Enhancement script...
    wget: www.mastersav.com: Host name lookup failure
    Download failed. Adjust DNS and try again? [y/n]: y

    Make sure your Tivo is connected to the internet, and
    your network settings are correct. Exiting...
    rm: /enhancements: No such file or directory
    bash-2.02#y

    This is an already hacked tivo with the following directories:

    62_init_framework_ddn
    archive
    bin
    busybox
    cdrom > tivowebplus, tytools
    dev
    dist
    etc
    etccombo
    initrd
    install
    lib
    lost+found
    mnt
    opt
    proc
    sbin
    tvbin
    tvlib
    var
    tmp

    tweak.sh

    Is my problem still my network set up?

    As discussed here:

    Correct, if you mean that the Tivo is wired directly to the hub.

    Looks like you need to move your hub in between the Airport and the PC/Tivo. In other words, connect your hub to your Airport and then plug your PC and Tivo into your hub.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit the /etc/resolv.conf file to include your DNS.
