    Using the latest set of scripts, I've been unable to get the merge module for TWP working. If I try to use the Up/Down buttons to rearrange the episodes, I get an "Error on Page" in the Explorer Status Bar.

    Has anyone gotten this working?

    I know. The problem was that i already installed the script with the wireless settings. And I could not get the script to installed the drivers. I was not sure how to remove the wireless setting so the script will intstall the drivers. But this is a moot point now, because I thought I figured it out but instead I lost all my IP settings. I have to the serial bash into the box, but just realized my laptop does not have a serial port :(

    Do you think for future editions of the script you can ask if the USB drivers want to be installed. I think it did in previous versions.

    Nope. Merge doesn't work with the latest version of TWP. You might post this comment in the merge thread.

    Now you see why I just sit back and read and wait to do anything new. ;)
    To me that is one of the primary reasons to have TWP. Some of the new enhancements with the new version don't have any appeal for me.

    Not that there is anything wrong with it, just trying to justify my lurking and reticence about being an early adopter, and tester of new features.

    Made a few minor mods:
    1. Modified tweak.sh to run uninstall script automatically if existing installation is found. New file attached to the original post of this thread.
    2. Include delmanual in /enhancements directory. Deletes the “manual tag” from manual recordings.
    3. Apply new version of lgkahn's ui.itcl module fixed to work with TWP 1.3.0.

    Rbautch, did you mean 1.4 instead of 4.1?

    Damn, found me out. But I am banging away on a 550mhz six-seven year old compaq right now. I've got three other machines that are less than two years old, but prefer to use this one. Got a 3.0 ghz machine that I have had for about a 6-7 months in another room, but prefer to use this one. The wife keeps hounding me to set it up where it is more accessible. Had the DTivo 10-250 for about six months before I got it set up (didn't have an HD TV for that long).
    But I keep reading and tweaking, just tonight went into out2osd.conf and tweaked the line settings on two of my boxes to get the caller ID to not cut off on the top.
    I read everything on Lou's remote access setup. Then researched back about using dyndns to accomplish essentially the same thing, I had followed it a year plus ago when it first hit, but "held off". Ended up going with the dyndns route. But not before having to replace my qwest DSL modem.

    But I am indebted to you and Gunny for all of the help you provide us here. Thanks.

    No. The Enhancement script version is up to 4.1 now. The Zipper version is at 1.7 (2.0 is at beta).

    I just upgraded my HR10-250 to 6.3 using The Slicer 1.3. Worked great. I then upgraded my InstaCake + PTVnet installation using The Enhancement Script to get a newer version of TivoWebPlus. This too worked. I have the new version. However, I am unable to find the Web Remote anywhere in the TWP UI. If I manually visit the old Web Remote URL ending in /sendkey and my browser still shows me the image of a Tivo remote, but clicking on the buttons in the image will trigger the error below. Any idea how to get the web remote back?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sendkey doesn't work with 6.2 and I doubt it works with 6.3.

    Hey Russ,
    I just ran the new tweak on a previously zippered unit. You know, the tweak in the first post. ;) (that one's for LV :D ) I saw something I haven't noticed before that I thought I would let you know about. It correctly shows the IP address it finds in MFS then when running Netperf, it incorrectly shows the IP as 127.0.0.1. All hacks are working fine. I'm guessing this a minor thing but it did make me think that someone who is new to this might get confused.
    Code:
    Checking network settings...
    The following IP parameters found in MFS:
       IP address is currently set to: 192.168.1.115
       Default gateway is currently set to: 192.168.1.1
       Subnet Mask is currently set to: 255.255.255.0
       DNS Server is currently set to: 192.168.1.1
       DHCP is off
       NO WIRELESS PARAMETERS ARE SET IN MFS
    Do you want to install netperf network performance tool? [y/n] :y
    Netperf will measure MRV speed between this tivo and another "target" tivo.
    
    The IP address of this tivo is 127.0.0.1. Enter the IP address of the target tiv
    o here: 192.168.1.111
    
    Adding the alias "speed" to your profile to run netperf...
    
    Do you want to add additional target tivos? [y/n]: n
    After rebooting, type "speed" at bash to measure MRV speed between 127.0.0.1 and
     192.168.1.111

    Looks like it incorrectly grabbed the loopback address instead of the real IP. You can ignore it, and it won't have any effect on functionality.

    I noticed the same thing, wondered why, but only choice was to continue. Could connect with correct address though and figured it was just a mistake.

    Should be fixed now. The last release included a new ifconfig from Jamie, which switches the order of the loopback and actual ip address.

    I ran tweak_uninstall.sh and tweak.sh. everything seemed to work OK at the time, however it messed up my network settings and my old shows are no longer viewable!

    I originally zippered my tivos (HDVR2s) about a month ago. On some of them I saved the odl shows, on some I wiped the disks and started over. Using MRV, I moved some of the old shows onto the fresh installations.

    A few days ago I updated one of the fresh units. Old shows (pre zipper) that had been copied to it, no longer play. They show up on now playing, but when selected I instantly go to the "Are you done with this program screen?". When I select "Don't delete" I get a screen telling me the recorder was not able to record the program because there was no video signal.

    Is there any way to reenable these shows? New recordings seem to work perfectly.


    The upgrade also messed up my network settings (it's possible I entered an incorrect IP address). However I was able to connect with a serial cable and fix the IP address.

    Thanks
    Michael

    I'm experiencing a few problems:

    I performed an unistall and a reinstall in order to get the latest version of the script and TWP. After lots of trial and error and many reboots, it appears that when I enable CRON during the script and then reboot I get to the acquiring sat. page and reach 59% then the tivo crashes and reboots. In the small window of time that I can telnet into the box before it crahses again I have been able to run the unistall script. It is up and running now, but with no CRON enabled.

    TWP is up and running but I see no hackman installed. Was that eliminated from the most recent script for a reason?

    Finally I can't get NCID to work. Previously I was using elseed and it worked great, but now nothing. Any ideas why?

    Thanks!

    If you run the zipper, but don't run tweak.sh right away, any shows you record in the interim experience this problem unless you answer yes when the zipper asks you "Are there existing recordings on your drive you want to keep? " Sounds like you transferred some shows that were encrypted, meaning they were recorded before you ran tweak.sh. Those programs will only play on the tivo they were recorded on.

    The uninstall script doesn't modify network settings.

    What is the status of the script (not Zipper) with 6.3(a) for the HR10-250? I read back 3+ weeks and didn't see it mentioned and it isn't mentioned in the OP.
