    I have read through many, many pages here and I want to make sure I am correct.

    This enhancement script can be run on an HR10-250 running 3.1.5f and currently running Tivowebplus 1.2.1 correct?

    Just follow the instructions on the link off the first post in this thread?

    You should tell us how your unit was hacked originally: PTV, ? (I assume you did not use the Zipper)

    Sorry. Yes. It was "opened" using PTVnetHD and Instantcake for the 3.1.5f image.

    Thanks

    I've been working on a revision that make the enhancement script play nicely with PTVnet. If you hold off for a few days, you can be the guinea pig.

    So I take it that means that the enhancement script does not work with a PTVnetHD upgraded HR10.

    Yes it does, but you'll get two instance of some hacks running simultaneously. It's also possible you'll run out of room in your root filesystem.

    Long time lurker - first post here.

    First -- thanks to rbautch, Gunny, etal for the wealth of information and resources. Thanks to you guys, I just completed hacking of my HR10-250 and a simultaneous roll-back to 3.1.5f.

    I'm having what appears to be exactly the same issue as raddison1971. In hacking my HR10, I used Zipper 2.3 and 3.1.5f from InstantCake 1.2. All done to a new Western Digital HD. I have not sliced to 6.3a. rbautch's script ran with no errors.

    Since I'm not using caller ID, I told the tweak script to not restart if a recording is in process.

    I have seen the message flash on screen "fakecall successful", but I still get the nag messages and have the exact same dates that raddison1971 has for last successful call and next call.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    What are the values of the attributes I posted above. What exactly do the nag messages say?

    Here's mine on a HR10-250 running 6.3a: (just in case it becomes useful for troubleshotting their's) :)
    Code:
    PhoneConfig 3247/10 {
      Version        = 11144
      AuthTollFree   = 0
      LocalAreaCode  = 614
      CallWaitingPrefix = {}
      DialInAreaCode = {}
      DialInNum      = 4930005
      DialInPrefix   = {}
      DialPrefix     = {}
      CallInProgress = 1
      DialConfig     = 000
      LastDialInUpdateDate = 13453
      LastSuccessCallDay = 13453
      LastSuccessCallSecInDay = 15607
      LastSuccessPgdCallDay = 13453
      LastSuccessPgdCallSecInDay = 15607
      LastCallAttemptDay = 13453
      LastCallAttemptSecInDay = 49525
      NextCallAttemptDays = 13454
      NextCallAttemptSecInDay = 9784
      LastCallStatus = Failed
      CallStatusInfo = 53
      IndexPath      = /State/PhoneConfig
    }
    From Info in TWP:
    Code:
    Phone Call Information
    Last Call	11:20pm, 31-Oct-06
    Last Call Status	Succeeded
    Next Call	11:20pm, 21-Nov-06

    Thanks. I just realized I edited fakecall with some changes that will break it for 3.1.5f only. I'll fix it soon.

    Here you go:

    PhoneConfig 3194/10 {
    Version = 139
    CallWaitingPrefix = *#
    DialPrefix = *#
    LastDialInUpdateDate = 13453
    CallStatusInfo = 1
    LastSuccessCallDay = 13453
    LastSuccessPgdCallDay = 13453
    LastSuccessPgdCallSecInDay = 83570
    LastCallAttemptDay = 13453
    LastCallAttemptSecInDay = 83570
    NextCallAttemptDays = 13453
    LastSuccessCallSecInDay = 83570
    LastCallStatus = Succeeded
    NextCallAttemptSecInDay = 1162609494
    IndexPath = /State/PhoneConfig
    }


    GeneralConfig 3204/10 {

    Ok. Here are mine, too:

    PhoneConfig 3194/10 {
    Version = 89
    CallWaitingPrefix = *#
    DialPrefix = *#
    LastDialInUpdateDate = 13453
    CallStatusInfo = 1
    LastCallStatus = Succeeded
    LastSuccessCallDay = 13453
    LastSuccessCallSecInDay = 15648
    LastSuccessPgdCallDay = 13453
    LastSuccessPgdCallSecInDay = 15648
    LastCallAttemptDay = 13453
    LastCallAttemptSecInDay = 15648
    NextCallAttemptDays = 13453
    NextCallAttemptSecInDay = 618253
    IndexPath = /State/PhoneConfig
    }

    and from System Information:

    Phone Call:
    Last Successful: Wednesday, Dec 31 at 4:49 am
    Last Attempt: Wednesday, Dec 31 at 4:49 am
    Last Status: Succeeded
    Next Scheduled: Wednesday, Jan 7 at 9:44 pm

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks.

    Edit: Forgot to mention... I deleted the nag messages, but they said something like "Your Tivo has not dialed out in 13xx days. Check your telephone connection... etc., etc."

    rbautch do you know what effect it would have on the unit (HR10-250) if I performed the 6.3 upgrade and then a clear and delete all? I am worried that in your instructions you made the comment that "Do not do a "clear and delete everything", even if the Instantcake directions tell you to." Is this because it would cause an issue with the hacks that are installed here?

    I am asking because I went back to 3.1.5f because I was having severe issues with 6.3a and D* says to perform a C&D everything to correct some of the issues, I have also seen posts from others that have performed the C&D all and they say it seems to have fixed thier issues.

    Your thoughts? Thanks by the way for this great script! If I would have to research these things myself I would probably be in divorce court right now. Thanks for all your help. Once I get these issues resoilved I will be upgrading my SD-DVR40 also. I will of course purchase the iso's from PTVUpgrade linking from your site so that you get your commision. :)

    What else will I need to do to an extr*t of recorded shows? I know that the Zipper decryps them but do I just FTP them down? This is my whole reasoning behind hacking my tivo, because I travel for a living. This means that my wife gets really pissed with me on the weekend because I have to catch up on my weekely shows. If I can do this it will make dealing with my wife much easier, lol. :eek:

    You need a Slingbox. :p Check the Zipper wiki for that which cannot be discussed here.

    I'm not sure of everyting a clear and delete does, but I know it will remove your network settings in MFS. If you have a line in your author file that runs the network.tcl script, those settings will get restablished when you boot, and then will become active when you reboot again. The slicer surrounds the command that runs network.tcl with code to make sure it only runs once. You'd have to edit that to make it run again.

    I'm a total noob, so please bear with me -- want to make sure I do this right.

    I grabbed this new zip file last night, extracted it to fakecall.tcl, ftp'd that in binary mode to the enhancements directory in the HR10 (to replace the existing fakecall.tcl), and made sure the file permissions were the same as the previous version.

    Is that right or is there something else I need to do?

    If that looks right, I'll force a call (with no phone line, of course) when I get home from work tonight.

    Thanks much.
