    Either download and FTP the copy of tweak.sh from the first post of this thread, or extract the rbautch_files.tgz archive from the tools disk and FTP it to the same directory as your current tweak.sh.

    RID does not mean it can't be hacked.

    Thanks for replying!

    Question does it require a hardware change? Or is software all that needs to be changed? I would like to MRV it with my HDVR2s.

    I cannot FTP it because I'm being told:

    ftp> send tweak.sh
    200 PORT command successful.
    550 Error opening file; Read-only file system.
    ftp>

    So set the filesystem to read-write.

    I am assuming that all SD-DVRXX models are RID models, but only the R10 requires the hardware change, is that correct?

    It seems that I have verified that information, but I was looking for verification from the builder of the "ZIPPER", which by the way is great.

    BTW, I was a little early on the signature, my SD-DVR80 was installed today and is still on 3.1.

    Correct. Be sure to upgrade to 6.2 before/during the Zipper install.

    Thanks for the reply, I am awaiting the install of 6.2. And by the way, "THE ZIPPER" is a great tool/upgrade script. There are a lot of people who appreciate what you have done for them. Two of my HDVR2s where previous upgraded with PTVNet, but all I did was remove TWP and "THE ZIPPER" installed perfect.

    Thanks again for all of "THE ZIPPER", help, and information.

    rbautch, the enhancements were the step where i type sh tweak.sh, and then afterwards it ask me all these questions. I said yes to the USB 2.0 supports. Did I do this correctly? My airlink still doesn't work after this.

    Confirm that you rebooted after running the script. If it still doesn't work, download and install the drivers manually.

    With the latest script, what is the effect of disabling encryption on EXISTING recordings?

    Will I still be able to WATCH the existing recordings?

    Does this mean that recordings AFTER the zipper / enhancements are available for extra curricular activities?

    May I just confirm rrbautch (to whom I owe a debt of gratitude).

    Existing recordings (pre-hack) are playable locally, but that's it. Post hack recordings can be manipulated with Those verY special tools.

    You *may* find a workaround if you Deal in Database Commerce, but don't count on success.

    I was able to play all recordings whether they were made before or after hacking. Or do you mean unplayable after you know what?

    Right. Encryption is not the friend of You Know What. It has no effect on normal playback. So recordings made after disabling that are suited for YKW and the existing ones not. Normal playback will be the same regardless.

    So.... if I Zipper my HR10-250 TONIGHT, will I be able to WATCH the shows that are sitting on it RIGHT NOW, all made PRIOR to the Zippering, on the television connected to the HR10-250?

    I understand that ONLY the shows recorded AFTER Zippering will be available for "other stuff".

    I think we've already said too much TiVogre so I'll resist telling you that you are correct. :)

    My bad, I was thinking of 51killer. If the recordings were made on an unhacked tivo, then they are encrypted. If you move the drive to a new tivo and run 51killer, then they will be unplayable. But, if you restore the drive to the same tivo, you won't need to run 51killer, so they will still play.
