    The TWP startup script is clunky, and I'll eventually remove it in favor of direct startup commands in the author file. The original intent was to search your Tivo for the TWP installation (could be anywhere), and then create a startup script that gets called from the author file. The TWP scripts are also used for aliases in the .profile, and for restarting TWP from the bash prompt. The path of least resistance for inexperienced users is to extract the TWP archive on their PC, rename the main folder to "tivowebplus", and then copy it over. Otherwise, stick with the TWP version in my archive. It's customized quite a bit (see OP), includes extra modules, and I update it regularly.

    I uninstalled the enhancement script and then installed the latest. I get this error when I try "To Do" from the UI:
    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_ui '/todo' ''
    couldn't open "/var/hack/etc/blocklist.txt": read-only file system
    while executing
    "open $filename w"
    (procedure "gbl_load" line 3)
    invoked from within
    "gbl_load "/var/hack/etc/blocklist.txt""
    (procedure "action_todo" line 9)
    invoked from within
    "action_todo $chan 7 $env"
    (procedure "::action_ui" line 28)
    invoked from within
    "::action_$action $chan $part $env"
    ("eval" body line 1)
    invoked from within
    "eval {::action_$action $chan $part $env}"
    --cut here--

    Any suggestions?

    Same thing happened here. The newer ui.itcl file in the module directory of TWP doesn't play nice. Toward the beginning of this thread a fixed version was posted. It didn't work for me and I ended up replacing it with an older version.

    In the tivowebplus folder I have ui.itcl 9/15/2006 and ui.itcl.orig 8/21/2006.
    I thought I would rename the new one and remove the .orig from the old. However, I get a Read only file system message.
    Sorry its a noob question...

    In the Enhancement script readme there are directions on how to mount as read/write. Unless I use something on a regular basis it falls out of my head.

    I found it. Type rw at a bash prompt. ;-)

    Once I did that, the new ui.itcl worked so I didn't need to change to the old one.

    Is it OK to leave the system like this?

    Does/can TWP 1.3.1 use folders when displaying the now showing titles?
    If so, is it enabled by default or is it something that needs to be added?

    No, it doesn't use folders, but I think there's a ui module (by LJ?) that will.

    This is listed at the beginning of the thread: - Custom ui.itcl module (create and manipulate folders in NPL): courtesy of lgkahn.

    What does it mean in terms of folders?


    Thanks!

    Is there any kind of notification when you do update it?

    Hey Russ,

    Recently Un-Zppered (Jan 06 version) and Re-Zippered (2.0) to bring my units up to date. I like the changes made and the fact the EXTra ACTivites under "more" work fine now. Unfortunately the "edit" function seems to be broken on this build. Fails with:
    Any suggestions?

    TIA

    How long after a re-image and zipper install does it take for programs to show.? Its been about about 7 hrs now since I successfully completed the above , however one of my favorite programs from the SciFi channel will not show up in pick programs to record so that I might obtain a season pass. I did do a work around, should it not be there?

    It might take a day or so for all program data to show up.

    Russ or anyone,
    I want to remove some hacks, can I do it without having to uninstall the scripts then reinstall the ones that I want? can I just manually remove the ones that I don't want? thanks

    depends on what the hacks are.
    You can easily comment out items from running in the .author file, but any modifications that change system files like superpatch for example, require restoring the unmodified tivoapp file back to /tvbin
