    After an entire day of fruitless efforts, I am finally giving in and asking for help.

    I hacked my philips 708 a few days ago with the zipper and things went great. Everything was functional, including wireless networking. I could telnet in without problems after having set a static ip. Last night, I try and connect to the tivo and nothing.
    Tryed pinging the static ip.....nothing
    Tryed 2 different usb adapters....nothing
    I did an angry ip scan thinking that maybe the ip got changed.....nothing
    I am now attempting to connect via serial, but all I get is a bunch of garbage on the screen in hyperterminal.
    Anybody had this problem before???
    I searched the forums for a solution to no avail

    Please help me out guys. This is driving me nuts. I'm new to tivo hacking but I have hacked xbox's extensively. Much of the terminology/procedures are the same. I don't understand why it did work and now doesn't

    Garbage is good.
    Check your settings: Baud/bps: 115200, Data: 8bit, parity: none, stop bits: 1, flow control: none
    Try using Tera Term Pro hyperterminal.

    rbautch, tried again this AM and same thing. This time I ran Tweak, it said was erro #51 and corrected, didn't install Channel logos or showcases or anything, just usb 2 drivers, CallerID, cron, joe etc.

    Booted to Menu screen, soon as I chose Watch TV it rebooted and then after that kept rebooting after Acquiring sat info.

    I don't want to make this thread my own personal assistance post, so perhaps I will post a new Thread and see if anyone with HR10-250 can help.

    Texster thanks!!!!

    That got me in via the serial cable.....now what.

    not too familiar with linux commands

    it looks as though there was an issue with the usb 2.0 driver.

    maybe thats why it worked at first and died after a reboot

    how do i revert back to 1.1 drivers?

    OK, I figured out how to uninstall and reinstall tweaks, leaving out usb 2.0 drivers.
    Still doesn't work though

    Here's some additional info my tivo spit out

    usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x2001/0x3702) is not claimed by any active drive
    r.

    I just want to know if there is a way to rename a saved program so that it's put in a folder. For instance. Put multiple kids shows (different shows) under one folder. Put Movies under another folder.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Well I feel dumb I bought a USB200M v2 and I did the USB 2.0 upgrade via zipper & tweak and no connection. :(

    Anyone have a quick suggestion before I pack it back up and exchange it for a different one?

    Thanks

    Whew 3 nights it taken me to get through these 67 pages of post. Actually most of it was good reading . So Rbautch I am about to zipper my HD10-250. I just upgraded it to two 300 gig drives. Do ya think everything is good to go with it having two large drives?

    I'd recommend getting a Netgear FA120 adapter. It has a much better design than the USB200M which has a VERY flimsy and easily broken connector.

    I get this message on boot and if I plug my WUSB11 v2.8 into the usb port after boot:

    usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x2001/0x3702) is not claimed by any active drive
    r.


    Of course I can't get any wireless connection going. Does the above stated line mean that the usb device isn't recognized? Should I only update the usb drivers to 2.0 if I need them?

    Everyother aspect of the zipper and tweaks went great. Just no wireless connection!!!

    That error message can be ignored. The fact that it echoed the vend/prod code means that it's being recognized. Don't update to USB 2.0. Do you get a link light? Have you turned off WEP?

    Yes I get a link light. I've tried with WEP turned off. Are you telling me not to install the 2.0 drivers?

    My change was to make it look like this:
    Code:
    if [ ! -e /cdrom/superpatch*tcl ]; then
    It could have something to do with the sh on the PTVupgrade CD.

    Off to upgrade my wife's DTivo. I'll have to upgrade the usb.map to support my Airlink ASOHOUSB.

    With a wireless adapter, you won't see much increase in speed with usb 2.0 drivers, but since you get a link light that's obviously not the problem. If you see a link light, but can't telnet, it's usually one of the following:
    1. WEP is set on your router, but not on tivo.
    2. Telnet is not running on your Tivo.
    3. You're telnetting to the wrong IP address
    4. Your PC's firewall is blocking access.

    Can you ping the tivo from your PC?

    hopefully rbautch can come up with a new zipper version that will install usb 2.0 in the first part of the script, i think it could be added into the inital script that installs bash and tivoftpd when the drive is back running on the tivo. it should be easy enough to implement. most likely you will have to reboot the tivo after first bootup with the zipper for usb 2.0 (i think you have to reboot with the current version).

    maybe out2osd can be included too so we can get a message on the screen that doesnt go away saying "first part of zipper complete, reboot me for usb 2.0"





    on another note, i just zipperd my tivo last night for the first time, there was i got an error on the joe installation part (something like cp: /enhancements/.joerc No such file or directory) , i stopped the script, ran uninstall, then i used the enhancement script in the other thread. i didnt get the problem again.

    before i ran tweak.sh i tested out the ftp speeds (got 700k-900k), now after the script (rebooted when it was done) i still get those speeds (tried access card pull and standby too), any quick pointers rbautch? a quick look around and i see usb 2.0 is running according to the kernel log i saw in twp.

    /lib/modules/backups-orig/ has older/smaller size versions of the files in /lib/modules/, so the script did replace those files, thats about as far as my troubleshooting went?????

    im using a fa-120, wired connection.

    thanks for the zipper gunny and rbautch, i prolly would of not gotten this far without it.

    mfs_ftp: here i come :)
