    If you check your cronlogs regularly, or if you use caller ID, then you'll want to get this. Here is the link if you want to download it manually. Note that this link will never change, even for future versions: http://www.mastersav.com/tivo_tweak/rbautch_files.tgz

    Very cool!! I am on this dumb PC way more than I should be. Now I don't have to turn to my Tivo to see who is calling. Plus I can check the incoming call log real quick.
    :D

    This should work:
    22 9 1 * 3,6,9,12 * rm /var/log/cronlog-main; echo "'date' cron logs wiped">> <SNIPPED>

    Delete cronlog-main at 9:22 GMT on the 1st day of Mar, June, Aug, and Dec.

    Actually you've got an extra * in there now. It should either be:

    22 9 1 3,6,9,12 * <snipped> (for May, Jun, Sep, Dec)

    Or you can just leave it as

    22 9 1 */3 * <snipped> (for Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct)

    I've applied the enhancement script...finally realized that the profile file is hidden by placing a . before the file name....Now, where is the revised bash prompt hidden? It's not in the .profile file??

    Thanks...BTW...Great Work!

    It IS in the .profile

    It's hard to read as is, cause it has a lot of "special" characters for colors.

    Look for the line export PS1=".....

    OK, I tried to set this up. But am getting a message of "NCIDpop not connected" with a little red "x" symbol on the NCIDpop icon on the desk tray. I entered the tivos IP address that is the NCID server for my tivos where it belongs and restarted NCIDpop but it does not change from "not connected". Any ideas/guidance would be appreciated.
    I saw the warning that "If you are running ncidd on a non-default pret (i.e., not 3333), enter the server name followed by a colon and the port number, e.g., callerid.domain.name:1234." But I have to admit that is a little over my head.

    Willard I can't help you. My excitement about ncidpop working out-of-the-box with a simple entry of the server DirecTiVo IP, quickly faded when it just stopped working for me. I'm seeing the same as you are...a red "x" indicating no communication.

    I guess any software with version 0.x is a work in progress. Sorry for the shared disappointment.

    I've never used VLC...any tutorials on how to set this up with TWP? I tried saving the .asx file and then running it with VLC but nothing happens (this is with Windows)

    rbautch,

    Two thoughts for the crontab file:

    - need to fix this line:
    14 9 * * * wget -O - "http://127.0.0.1/quit"; echo "`date` TWP stopped" >> /var/logs/cronlog-main
    so that the output file is /var/log/cronlog-main

    - it's better to flip-flop the echo and reboot commands on the SCHEDULED REBOOT line, otherwise the message "SCHEDULED REBOOT" never gets written to the log file (because the TiVo reboots before it is executed)

    Just my two cents.

    sure
    I forgot a little surgery on ui.itcl is needed

    Find the line that says (should be line 3223)
    Code:
    set delete_td "$delete_td [td [html_link "/asx/$fsid.asx" "View"]]" 
    
    and change it to say
    Code:
    set delete_td "$delete_td [td [html_link tivo://192.168.1.106/$fsid "View"]]"
    
    change the ip to your tivo's ip (duh)

    Other than the fact some people avoid M$ like the plague, is there any other reason it's worth it to use VLC?

    I like VLC simply because it plays EVERYTHING.
    It's also multi platform.
    Smaller footprint and uses less resources than WMP too.

    So on my 3 units I zippered last year I can just run the uninstall then run the tweak.sh and it should be the latest info (TWP in root, cron info fixed as well) or do I need to ftp the most recent files to my Tivo's.

    Yes that is! I was sure I read that earlier but didn't want to end up doing it twice. I am doing one as we speak.

    Update: After I did the uninstall and reinstall all hacks are back in the old places eg. var/hack/ tivowebplus.

    any ideas?

    BTW my uninstall on my 3 older tivo's looks like this 'tweak-uninstall.sh' and not 'tweak_uninstall.sh' like it is on my most recent unit. I wonder if that makes a difference.

    Update again: I FTP'd the newer uninstall and tweak.sh and it is all working right now. Except my ncid info stayed in var/hack and didnt move to the enahancement folder. back to the drawing board. lol

    Last update: I ran both uninstall scripts then ran the new tweak.sh and all is super. Now off to finish the last 2. he he

    After recently upgrading my harddrives i Zippered again. This time on my phillips i noticed the Showcase entry is gone.I wanted to get rid of it anyway. But on my Hughes it is still their.Is their something in your script that has been added to do this.If not is thier a way to check why it is not their on my Phillips. I have run the Superpatch67Standby.tcl on both. Not sure if this is the reason.

    The enhancement script asks whether you want showcases and yellow stars during the setup.
