    Wasnt't taling about extraction I didnt think. I thought maybe you could play the recordings thorugh the network on Windows media player vs playing them on directly on tivo. Maybe its still consifered extraction?

    Followed the very well-written instructions, and everything worked perfectly up to the point of telnetting into the dtivo to run the enhancement script. Then I had a "d'oh!" moment when I realised that a wireless connection would not work. Maybe you want to add a note to "Before You Begin".

    I have been happily running 4.0.1b up to now, always with a wireless usb connection. I don't have a usb-ethernet adaptor. So I guess I'll have to try to make up a cable and try a serial connection for the first time. A bit of a PITA.

    Anyway, I want to add my vote of appreciation to Gunnyman and rbautch. I also firmly believe that DTV and TiVo both benefit from the availability of these enhancements.

    Gunnyman, we are both in Greenville. Please PM me and I'll buy you lunch.

    Any talk of playing files from a Tivo on anything/anyway other than on a Tivo is considered extraction. :D

The nice lady at DTV even let me resub a unsubbed card from the customer that unsubbed it and sold it to me....HEHEHEHehe which means that I atleast have one other card that is nice and tied to my name as well as another that was reported missing..IT WAS, about a month after DTV called me and sent out another one my neighbor came over with it..apperently his daughter checked the mail one day and it ended up under the couch......I will call and cancel the receiver its replacing later....Crossin fingers...

    Okay, I done finished "Zippering" the 1st Zippered Tivo, and I just want to say ... Awesome guys...

    Where do I send paypal donation? Comeon, you need to accept more then just a Group Hug!! Maybe a donation to your favorite Charity or something.

    I must admit, using the Unguide and rbautch's script took me a Heck of alot longer then the Zipper method did. A big thanks to BTUx9 as well for assistance.

    I love this place, it is Noob friendly ;)

    Anychance someone can help me get cron to start automatically. For some reason....mine is not. I did a PS and it wasnt running, so I started it up via the Web interface. I would like it automated but I'm linux stupid. IF chron isnt running, then I suppose the reboots wouldnt work either. Wonder if those hacks made it in. Should I rerun the tweak.sh?

    Since Sanderton was kind enough to allow me to use EndPad(Plus) in the next version of the Enhancement script, anyone who wants to show their appreciation can make a donation to the very worthwhile charity referenced here. ...unless you live in SC, then you can buy some BBQ for Gunnyman.

    Re-running the script won't help, unless you run the uninstall script first. Uninstall/reinstall takes about 5 minutes, and it's a very simple thing to try. Did you reboot after you ran the Enhancement script? Did you check the logs I mentioned before? (to check a log, open it with vi). You can also check the author file to see if the startup command for crond was appended as it should have been. You can also start crond manually with Hackman, or by navigating to the buysbox directory and typing "crond". There are more cron troubleshooting tips in the enhancement thread and elsewhere on TCF.

    Zipper v2 may add wireless support, but beyond that, who knows...By the way, I'm tweaking the Enhancement script already to accommodate the HR10-250.
