    Just booted up in the TiVo.... all is well.... whew!!!! Thanks again, I am about start on the 2nd box.

    One final TWP question: How do I access TWP from outside my network? Is it possible if I have DHCP enabled?

    One secure method is to use a remote access service like www.logmein.com, or the remote access feature built in to Windows XP pro.

    yes
    I advise going into tivoweb.cfg and setting a username and password
    after that it is as simple as going into your router and forwarding port 80 to the IP address of your tivo
    to access your Tivo from the internet, you use your IP address that gets provided to you by your ISP
    to find it you can use whatismyip.com

    If you actually go to the zipper site, the answer to that question is in an underlined red font at the top of the web site.

    All,

    Thanks to everyones help, I got my subbed DTV Tivo hacked and my non subbed DTV Tivo (MRV Tivo) up and running. 1 is hardwired and the other is wireless. MRV is so awesome. I appreciate everyones help. Zipper and rbautch's enhancements script is awesome.

    Just curious... Is there anyways to run my regular subbed DTV reciever through the unsubbed dtv tivo so I can watch TV and/or record on the tivo? I doubt it, but its worth to ask.

    no not really except for native support of large Hard Drives
    If you are happy with 4.01b on your DTivo, theres not much reason to switch IMHO.
    Just be aware that hack development on 4.01b will pretty much dry up soon.

    Any Series 2 Tivo. It's a little broken for the HR10-250, but that's about to change.

    And what, pray tell, will you be able to do with an HR10-250?

    The HR10-250 has 3.x software, which is older than the 6.x or 7.x versions that the script has been tested on to date. Files are in different places, network settings are stored differently, etc..., all of which I have begun to adjust the script for. I'm testing things out now with the help of MisterEd, and I should have a beta version ready soon. Anyone with an HR10-250 is welcome to help me test.

    Note that we are talking about the Enhancement script, not the Zipper.

    The process for hacking it is just different...different image, kernel, more tools need to be dowloaded to the tools disk. It can be done, but I just havent gotten around to looking at it seriously yet. I'm also skeptical about the demand for this hack, since DirecTV will be replacing this unit with a new mpeg-4 version, and swapping them out for free.
