    Prior to running fakecall the Phone settings show:

    Last successful call Friday, Feb 3 at 9:20 pm
    Next scheduled call Mon, Feb 6 at 12:51 am

    I ran fakecall as follows:

    HD-TiVo# fakecall.tcl
    Running fakecall version 3
    Fakecall ran successfully!
    HD-TiVo#

    After running fakecall manually Phone settings show:

    Last successful call Saturday, Feb 4 at 3:30 pm
    Next scheduled call Saturday Feb 4 at 5:00 pm

    This doesn't look right. What's going on?

    Not sure. Maybe try downloading and running a new copy of fakecall.

    Thanks for your help. Where can I d/l this from?

    Also, I notice there are different file dates and sizes.
    In /busybox fakecall.tcl is dated Jan 31 and is 3205k.
    In /enhancements its dated Sept 26 and is 2913k.

    Could this be the problem?

    I'm just getting into the NCID and have done some research, but I have some questions (please forgive)...
    Is this the only way to configure 2 or more boxes:
    Can someone expand on this or do the above instructions explain it all:
    I haven't tried editing Tivo files yet so I'm a little hestitant. Do I use the Joe editor or should I use something else? Is using Joe fairly easy to learn? Any links or pointers would be greatly appreciated. :)
    EDIT: Did some more searching and reading. Got it working on the 2nd box (client). It was easier than I thought. Time to do the rest on my units. :D

    I tried this and have not been able to get it to work. I have an HR10-250 and a DSR7000 both zippered. Caller id works well on the DSR7000. Like you I read the above info and edited the files on my HR10-250 without any difficulty. Caller id continues to work well on my 7000 but not the 10-250.

    Is there a different version of fakecall for the HR10-250's? I know when I run fakecall it says version six and not version three.

    I modified a version for the script to work with 6.2. That doesn't preclude it from working with other versions.

    rbautch,

    Any more suggestions for me. I will gladly try another version - where can I download it from?

    Thanks

    Yes, I tried that exact syntax and always got the error message.

    There is one on the zipper tools disk, or else try DDB.

    That works, or you can also use Hyperterminal.

    In the crontab script for running seasonpass backups this line is trying to execute:

    # Make a backup of season passes and wishlists every Sunday night at 3:32am CST
    32 9 * * 1 cd /var/hack/tivowebplus; sh backup_run.sh; echo `date` season pass backup made >> /var/spool/cron/cronlogs/CRONLOG-MAIN

    If you've run the most recent Enhancements script you need to change the directory reference for this to properly execute, or you won't have any backups, because TWP got moved:

    # Make a backup of season passes and wishlists every Sunday night at 3:32am CST
    32 9 * * 1 cd /tivowebplus; sh backup_run.sh; echo `date` season pass backup made >> /var/spool/cron/cronlogs/CRONLOG-MAIN

    At least that's what I needed to do. To see if it's a problem check for a backup file from last night in /seasonpass_backups.

    I successfully have it running on a HR10-250 and 2 series 2 tivo's. The phone line is plugged into the HR10-250 which is the server for NCID. Here is my entry in each rc.sysinit.author file.

    HR10-250(192.168.0.22):#############################################
    # starting NCID CallerID
    cd /var/hack/sbin; ./ncidd
    cd /var/hack/bin; ./tivocid &

    #1 Series 2 Directivo (192.168.0.20):
    #############################################
    # starting NCID CallerID
    cd /var/hack/sbin; ./ncidd
    cd /var/hack/bin; ./tivocid 192.168.0.22 &

    #2 Series 2 Directivo (192.168.0.21):
    #############################################
    # starting NCID CallerID
    cd /var/hack/sbin; ./ncidd
    cd /var/hack/bin; ./tivocid 192.168.0.22 &

    As you can see the series 2 tivos reference the HR10-250 when starting tivocid. This was setup by the enhancements script and then I modified the author file on the 2 series 2 tivo's.

    Works great.

    Last July, I attempted to find an easy way to eliminate the CRLF problem when using TELNET, so I could setup a simple command file for all of my DirecTiVos and I stumbled upon this option. This command works on all of my Windows XP Pro SP2 machines to all of my HDVR2s running 6.2, so maybe there are differences in the telnet program on different versions or a different definition for a DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation) VT100 terminal.

    Sorry, are you up-to-date with your Service Pack and Patches? Or maybe your telnet program is different, I have listed my version below.

    Telnet Version: 5.1.2600.2674 [5.1.2600.2674 (xpsp_sp2_gdr.050510-1528)]
    Created: 8/29/2002
    Modified: 5/10/2005

    My batch file looks like:

    telnet -t vt100 TiVo_Frontroom
    Exit

    Where is the AlmostThere.png in 3.1.5 (HR10-250) ? I looked in /tvbin/ but it was not there, and even when I put one there is didn't take. Is it somewhere else in this version. It was right there in 6.2.


    Thanks,

    HUGE

    Easiest way to disable crlf in Windows' telnet is to put "unset crlf" (or any other telnet configuration command) in a text file called telnet.ini and save it to your Windows/System32 directory. Then, telnet will startup with crlf unset everytime.

    Is it as easy as it sounds? Just open Word or Notepad and type unset crlf then save the file in the Windows/System32 directory?

    Apparently not as easy as that. I tried it with no luck.
