    OK...Thanks. I'm almost good now. I wiped the busybox directory, rezippered, retweaked and have access to my box again with the appropriate tools.


    I'm still trying to figure out why my /enhancements/varhacks/mfs_ftp directory keeps getting deleted. It was my understanding that this is the correct place to put /var/hacks, then run the sym-linker then start it fro /var/hacks as one would expect.

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated, otherwise, I'll keep searching in the other place...

    When you run the uninstall script, it completely wipes away /enhancements, and then running tweak.sh builds it again. Since mfs_ftp is not part of the enhancements archive, you'd need to reinstall it.

    And when you do the tweak_uninstall what's considered "best practice"? Remove the "unpatched tivoapp" or leave it alone?

    Last night I told it to keep it. It seemed to work okay - any reason to not keep "keeping" the tivo app as I upgrade my otyher zippered units?

    It's nice to have a backup tivoapp, just in case something goes wrong someday. Unless you're running out of room in your root filesystem, just keep it. Type "df" at bash to see how much room you have.

    Anyone know if there is a fix for this ToDo list problem? I've been watching the messages and I haven't seen anything new come through regarding this.

    Also, Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to use the new "Group Title" & "Group With" fields? I've been trying to group movies into different folders like "Kids Movies" & "Movies" but haven't had much success.

    Thanks,

    Ed

    From your second question, it looks like you're using lgkahn's modified ui.itcl module. And I think that might be what's causing the issue with your ToDo list (referenced in your first question.) Try reverting back to the original ui.itcl that comes with TWP 1.3.0 and see if the issue goes away.

    Fyi, the original ui.itcl is still in the modules directory.

    Hello,
    I put a new image (IC - dsr704) on a 250GB yesterday, zippered, DL'd the latest files (via tivo) and completed.
    Now when I try to setup a new season pass via TWP I get this:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_saveseasonpass '' 'set "quality" "100";set "kam" "0";set "showtype" "0";set "keepuntil" "1";set "startearly" "0";set "endlate" "0";set "objectid" "103934/11";set "type" "1";set "seriesfsid" "88715";set "stationfsid" "4925";set "action" "Create";'
    can't read "TmkEvent::EVT_DATA_CHANGED": no such variable
    while executing
    "event send $TmkEvent::EVT_DATA_CHANGED $TmkDataChanged::SEASON_PASS $spfsid"
    (procedure "::action_saveseasonpass" line 23)
    invoked from within
    "::action_$action $chan $part $env"
    ("eval" body line 1)
    invoked from within
    "eval {::action_$action $chan $part $env}"
    --cut here--


    However, via TWP it looks to have saved the SP and I can edit it but I get another similar error.

    BTW - This new TWP is frickin FAST! Thanks rbautch

    Russ,

    When I Zippered and ran tweak on an HR10-250, I made sure I turned ON the Showcases feature; however, whenever I press "showcases" from the menu, I get the message "Showcases are not available at this time. Please try again later."

    Is there a way I can check in my TIVO's brain to see if Showcases actually ARE "on" in my TIVO?

    In mfs, look at the /State/ServiceConfig/DataGroupIntList object. The tokens in there should be roughly equal to those that are listed in the sc62add.tcl script. The tokens in the script probably have to be updated periodically for it to work properly, and I havent done that. To find out what the current tokens should be, let an unhacked tivo call in, then hack it, then find out what the new tokens are in /State/ServiceConfig/DataGroupIntList.

    I just ran the uninstall/reinstall routine on my Hughes HDVR2 DirecTivo and have lost connectivity through telnet, etc. From what I have read through searches here it appears that my next best option is to Re-Zipper the drive and try again.

    Is this correct?

    Not sure why you would lose connectivity, unless you were using a wireless adapter. Unless you have a serial cable to troubleshoot it, yes, your only option is to re-zipper it.

    This makes me think that you are running an old version of Tivowebplus. The event system was removed from 6.2, and Tivowebplus was updated to catch these errors if your software is 6.2.

    edit: I take it back. I get the same error. There apprears to be some undesired interactions between Lgkhan's ui.itcl module and the rest of TWP.

    I just recently found this script and it sounded interesting enough to check it out. All went well, it's pretty cool how the script works. But overnight my USB port seemed to die. It's as if the usb drivers aren't being started. I confirmed this by trying two different USB NICs, one wired one wireless. I have a serial cable but I don't know what to look for. Plus the only editor I have access to is vi and I never really learned it. i'm familiar :q. That's about it. Can anyone help me determine the cause of the loss of USB? Or if that's not it, what happened?

    What kind of adapter to you have? Are you running DHCP? Did you answer yes to install Jamie's backported USB 2.0 drivers? Over your serial connection, run the script called /enhancements/net-status.tcl, and see if it matches up with what you expect.

    No.
    Yes.
    Yes, it does.
    One last thing: I ran the tweak_uninstall.sh to see if restoring the original drivers would make any difference. However, before I did that I copied the contents of the enhancements directory so I'd have those tools available.
