    If you are using the standard dos command prompt from Windows, run this on your PC to make sure your terminal settings are correct. If that doesn't help, you can also grab an uninstall script from the Zipper download.

    Russ,
    I zippered my DTivo a couple weeks ago and answered no to the Showcases and Yellow Stars questions, the Yellow Stars have since been removed but the Showcases are still there in the Directv Central menu, what can I do to have it removed please?
    PS-my other DTivo doesn't have either Showcases and Yellow Stars

    also, I saw that you edited the enhancement scripts on 10-20-06 at 5:22 PM, what was edited or changed? thanks

    Showcases will give you the NFL Sunday Ticket downloads, so you may wish to keep them. Just a thought.

    I just ran the 1st step of the Zipper program. Basically I used the boot disk to put the PTV Image on the disk. When I was asked where the drive was located I put in the correct location (hda). My question about that is what about the second drive in hdb? Will it see both of them?

    Second question is after installing the image I am not able to locate the Tivo on the network. Is this normal? Do I need to do anything else?

    Thanks. Robert

    If you used instantcake to apply an image to both drives, boot them up first to make sure everything works. Then run the zipper on the master drive only. After you put the drive in your tivo, try to ping the IP address you entered while running the zipper.

    Rather than try to block showcase tokens, I'm going to use tuikhelper to actually remove it from the menu. This should be a more definitive way to remove them.

    that sounds like a much better way to have it removed, I be on the lookout for the new update of your scripts when you make it official with it :D

    Okay I got past all of that. I was able to use the PTV Upgrade then Zipper. Once I installed all the hacks, I was in TWP successfully ran a restore of my season passes then tried running a backup. I got the following error and my Tivo rebooted at the same time.

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_backup_create_write '' 'set "fname" "/tivowebplus/backups/20061029_settings";set "submit" "Create";'

    ("eval" body line 1)
    invoked from within
    "eval {::action_$action $chan $part $env}"
    --cut here--

    Any Ideas?

    Also what else will I need to do to extr*t shows? I know that the Zipper decryps them but do I just FTP them down?

    I am hoping to "fully" hack this Tivo then use slicer to upgrade to 6.3a. Will running a "Clear and Delete Everything" have any affect on these hacks?

    Sorry for the dumb questions and thanks in advance for your help.

    It seems that Fake call is not working. I saw the message pop up on the screen saying that fake call was made successfully but I still got a message saying that I need to make a call soon. Any ideas?

    Fakecall doesn't "take" until the box reboots. To verify what I said take a look at settings, phone and see when it says the last successful phone call was made. I'll bet it doesn't reflect the fakecall that just occurred. Rest easy, your box will reboot in the wee hours tonight and it should "take".

    Now I don't have enough information to know if that's good or bad. When I last posted on this it was last night, and I told you that I expected something like you got. But I also said that after it rebooted in the wee hours of this morning it should update. So not knowing if you checked after it rebooted or before I don't know if your OK, or not. When did you check? If you checked today then go into system information and check the up time to see when it last rebooted. If you checked after it rebooted and got the Jan 1st date then you got a problem. :(

    Ok, if you are sure that it rebooted and the call time is Jan 1st then my guess is that Fakecall didn't work. I am not sure if it is possible for it to give you the message on the screen that it was successful even if it were not. Go to system information and see what it says there for the last connection, that one usually updates when Fakecall is made, while the one in settings - phone doesn't get updated until the box reboots.

    In the system information is show that the last attempted and successful call was made:

    Last Attempt: Wednesday, Dec 31 at 5:55 am

    So it appears that fake call is not working for some reason, I guess.

    Sounds like it IS working. December 31st wasn't a Wednesday last year, for one thing. Fake call is showing a fake date. :D :D

    Then let me put it this way...Is there a way to make it give a more recent date then December 31st, 2003 (last date in the past that 12/31 fell on Wed, which makes sense because the message says it has not been made is like 13K days!!)? This way I will stop getting the messages that I should make a daily call soon. Which if I am not mistaken is the reason for having fake call...right?

    The Zipper skipped that step, I believe, because it is an HR10-250. I might be wrong. Is there an easy way that I can tell if it was installed?

    Ah, superpatch is indeed not applied for HR10-250 in favor of manual tivoapp patches. Not sure what your issue is, but you can confirm that fakecall is doing what it is supposed to by checking the dates that it is setting in MFS. MFS is easily browsable in Tivowebplus. Look for the following attributes and post your information here:

    /State/PhoneConfig/LastDialInUpdateDate
    /State/PhoneConfig/CallStatusInfo
    /State/PhoneConfig/LastCallStatus
    /State/PhoneConfig/LastSuccessCallDay
    /State/PhoneConfig/LastSuccessCallSecInDay
    /State/PhoneConfig/LastSuccessPgdCallDay
    /State/PhoneConfig/LastSuccessPgdCallSecInDay
    /State/PhoneConfig/LastCallAttemptDay
    /State/PhoneConfig/LastCallAttemptSecInDay
    /State/PhoneConfig/NextCallAttemptDays
    /State/PhoneConfig/NextCallAttemptSecInDay
    /State/ServiceConfig/ServiceStateExpiration
    /State/GeneralConfig/Complete
