    When i had applied the zipper to my drives previously the showcase entry was still thier on both units evan after a couple of months. I was just curious as to why this time it is gone on only one.

    There are two scripts that control showcases, one called sc62add.tcl and the other called sc62remove.tcl, both in the /enhancements directory. These scripts get run during the Zipper process when you get prompted, but you can also run them independently.

    I was able to succesfully hack the tivo but the menus items are slightly different than the 6.2 version. The "Standby" menu item is not on the first menu page when you press the DirecTV button. It is under the Setup & Messages menu after the Promos menu item. It is not visible in the Setup & Messages menu unless you scroll past the Promos menu item and go the next page. It is there by itself.
    Is this normal?

    I applied the latest tweak.sh script (which DLs a new set of files and reinstalls all rbautch's hacks) last week and Im noticing a missing module in TWP. I used to be able to use a series of TWP screens, I believe called UI or similar, to review season passes, delete/undelete shows, and otherwise interact with the NPL. This module now appears to be gone from my TWP install.

    Has this been removed recently, or did I screw something up with the last tweak.sh running?

    I have a quick question. I hope it has not already been discussed as I tried to search for the answer.

    I recently purchased a modded DirecTiVo and I want to run this script. When I run it, I get the following message:
    Original unpatched tivoapp found in /tvbin. This takes up lots of space and may interfere with running this script. Enter r to remove it, k to keep it or e to exit this script so you can FTP it to your PC.

    What should I do here?

    Thanks in advance!

    Type df -h at bash to see how much space you have left. If you have less than 10M available on your root filesystem, then delete it.

    Thanks, I did delete it after I made a copy to my PC. Thanks a lot!

    New question..

    The script did not detect that I have TWP installed (but it is installed) It is installed in \ptvupgrade\tivowebplus

    I uninstalled the script and ran it again telling the script I did not already have tivowebplus installed and it did add it to the root. How do I know if I am running the customized version that is in the script or the original one?

    I would also like to clean it up so I only have one copy on the HD. When I open tivewebplus, it looks just as it did before.

    Thanks! BTW, that is a great script!

    delete the copy in the ptvnet folder, and change the ptvnet flag to turn off tivowebplus.

    This may be a dumb question (I am a complete noob at TiVo modding) but how do I change the flag? Do I just turn it off using tivowebplus?

    Will I have to re-run the script after I do that?

    I really do appreciate your help!

    Should be in the Ptvnet instructions.

    I will try to figure it out. (I was not the one who installed the Ptvnet so I am not familiar with it.)

    I will do some searching to see if I can find the answer.

    Thanks.

    In the /init/ptv_flags folder...

    mv TIVOWEB_ON TIVOWEB_OFF

    That will rename the "ON" flag to "OFF". /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinint.author uses these flags to determine what items to start or not.

    I installed and ran Zipper from a disc set built by a friend. Everything looks good but after hours of reading this and the Enhancement Script thread (and feeling my brain turn to jello) I find that some of the files referenced on the Tivo Zipper instruction page are newer than ones on my friend supplied disc. It appears that at least one of the newer functions is that new scripts are found and downloaded to my Tivo. Is the easiest way to gain any new functions to do the tweak_uninstall, run the newer Zipper on my drive and rerun tweak after doing so? Should I install the newer version of rbautch_files.tgz I have seen posted in this thread or just let the new Zipper install download it? If this has been previously covered I apologize as I didn't see it (that jello brain thing maybe). Thanks for making Tivo hacking a whole lot easier!

    Thanks NoCheese.

    I was able to turn off the old TWP and uninstalled then reinstalled the script and now I have the customized version of TWP.

    One problem though.... Hackman in no longer an option on TWP. How do I get it installed?

    Run the uninstall script, and then run tweak.sh again. All new hacks will be downloaded automatically.

    Dowload it from the Hackman thread here on TCF. Read about before you install it.
