    Just curious - which TWP modules did you include in your script?

    Hackman, Channelprefs, Batch Play, Netconfig, Backup, and Manual Record. I'm also going to be adding SteveT's enhanced user interface shortly.

    Cool, rbautch! I look forward to installing it on my HDVR2 shortly. This is a hack upgrade weekend. :D

    Thanks for everything!

    The crond module will make it so I can still order pay-per-view? With the phone line attached?
    Has anyone verified this? I'd hate to have to pull the drive again... don't get me worng, the hack was relatively fast but my wife gets scarred when the tivo shell is on the kitchen counter. :D

    serial cable + changing password = not having to pull drive in 90% of the cases, if done correctly.

    The crond installation will make sure your unit never makes a regular call to Tivo, which would be bad. The ppv call is a seperate call to DirecTV, which is ok. I haven't tested this myself because I don't have a phone line. Why don't you try it out and report back? Just keep monitoring your system information screen to make sure the "Last Successful" and "Next Scheduled" calls keep getting updated.

    I'm helping out on the future Tivowebplus 1.2.1 release also, which will finally integrate a few of the most useful modules.

    OK.
    I'll guinea pig this tonight.

    When you go into settings->phone->connect to DVR Service... is that calling D* or Tivo. Since it says DVR service, I would think thats tivo... is there a way to force call D* ?

    In regards to the "almost there" splash screen, where do you put a new one to install instead of yours (don't get me wrong, I like yours but I like to play :D)

    Connect to DVR Service is Tivo. Not sure how to force a call to DirecTV other than ordering a PPV. the splash screen is located in /tvbin/AlmostThere.png. Be sure to heed my warnings in post 21 before you try to replace it. I posted my source graphics on the download site to use as a base for new splash screens. Be sure to post your new splash screen here so we all can share!

    OK,
    I have the script installed and am waiting to reboot. My wife is watching the news so it'll be a few. Maybe all night. But I'll let you know about the connect to DVR stuff since she bought a PPV 2 days ago without a phone line...

    Quick question from a newb, what's the best way to install version 2.0? Uninstall previous version or install over previous (1.4 I think)?

    Thanks

    Hmm. I've always thought with a hacked DTiVo the best way to order PPV's was over the internet or calling a CST at DTV (yet there's a surcharge for the latter, I think.)

    I leave my DTiVo's phone line unplugged.

    Totally true. But my wife forgot that I hacked the Tivo and told her that she shouldn't buy PPV on a whim...

    What really gets me about PPV is that we have 875 DVDs... She could have found something to watch!

    As for the hack and see what connects. I installed the script, no sweat. Now I am just waiting for the Tivo to call D*. I hope it will have by the time I get home. It hadn't when I went to bed last night.

    Uninstall the old, then reinstall the new.

    Excellent. So, this is a more updated logo set than the logo-67.slice that is out there? If so, that is great news. I've been looking for an updated logo set for a while.
