    Keep in mind that we're currently on daylight savings time, and EDT is GMT -4, which is why a setting of 9:25 GMT means your TiVo is rebooting at 5:25 A.M.

    With your new settings, the reboot will happen at 3:25 A.M. once we're back on standard time for the winter months (but I'm assuming that's an okay time for you, too).

    Here on the other side of the country, I had to move the reboot time forward so that the reboot wouldn't happen during "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" in the winter months (at 1:25 A.M. PST).

    Thank you rbautch for confirming this for me. And for everything else you do too.
    And thank you trainman for bringing DST to my attention. I for the life of me couldn't figure out why it was rebooting at 5:25 am when the settings in cron had it to reboot at 4:25. It all makes sense now and seems so obvious. Damn DST messes up my sleep, and now it crossed the line messing with the tivo :mad: Thank you guys.

    I am having an issue regarding installation of the tweak. This is what I get when I telnet:

    bash-2.02# cd /var
    bash-2.02#
    bash-2.02# sh tweak.sh
    tweak.sh: line 15: syntax error near unexpected token `elif'
    'weak.sh: line 15: ` elif [ "$tivoapp" = "e" ]; then
    bash-2.02#
    bash-2.02#

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    TivoWebPlus question:

    I used a TWP self-installer that installed it to /var/local/tivoweb-tcl

    When running the script I said yes TWP is installed - it looked for it but didn't find it. Should I just delete that dir, run the script again saying no previous TWP? Can I just use the script for installing TWP, or should I use the uninstall script and do it all over?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    The TWP installation is very portable. You can move the entire directory anywhere you want, and then add a line in your author file to launch it when your tivo boots. Or if you want my customized version of TWP, you can delete the entire directory, and run the script again, answering no to previous TWP.

    I have just installed the Enhancement script on 2 series 2 D*tivos. One is on a fresh install using instant cake and the other is on a unit that was hacked a year ago, both using 6.2. I had no problem setting the IP address on the first unit but can't change it on the second. The script shows what it is set at but won't allow any changes. How can I change the address on this unit?

    The unit that was hacked already is probably setting an IP address somewhere else, causing a confict. Check test.conf or rc.sysinit.author for ifconfig commands, and remove them. How was the tivo hacked previosly...Sleeper, killhdinitrd, other?

    I'm not sure but I think it was killhdinitrd. A friend did most of the work on the first unit. I looked in test.conf and rc.sysinit.author using joe and haven't seen any signs of ifconfig commands. Any other places I can look?

    You can use the grep command to search for a file that contains it. You can also check the IP paramters in tivowebplus.

    I want to replace the splash screen with a vacation photo. What is the limit on size/dimension/pixel density for the png file? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the help rbautch. I decided to pull the drive out and Zipper it. All went well with the exception of Hackman which didn't seem to load or install. I'll be checking that out next.
    Thanks again. :)


    Found my answer. All it takes is a little search.

    Did you find the answer as to why it wasn't there or how to turn it back on?

    Is there any good reason to keep the cron job that spits the date out to cron.test.out every five minutes? Since everything seems to be working fine, I'm not sure I see the point.

    It cant hurt, but there's not a reason to keep it beyond troubleshooting cron. I suggest commenting it out rather than deleting it.

    I was looking at one of my logs (don't recall which at the moment but it wasn't cron.test.out) and it was filled with entries for this job. I just thought that the log would be easier to read without all those entries.

    Anyway, I commented it out already. So I can easily re-enable it if the need arises.

    The tweak.sh script downloads the tgz file. Didn't work for me for some reason, so I downloaded it and put it in the same dir with the script. No problemo.

    Will the Zipper work on a Series 1 SAT-T60 machine? I lost my channel icons/logos with a hard drive update and I am looking for a way to get them back.
