    That may be true, but I would love to extend the life of my HR10-250 for a few more years. If it had all the things on it that my Series 2 has I would keep it regardless of the free upgrade.
    As it is, it sits sadly waiting for me to watch one or two HD shows a week while my SD TiVO works it's tail off recording stuff left and right.

    I think this has been discussed before in another thread and I did a search but my eyes are now glazed over from reading this entire thread in one sitting...
    1) If I had three subbed (and hacked) DTivos (for MRV) and then added and hacked a fourth w/o subbing it, could I still use that box to view prerecorded shows from the other three boxes?
    2) If this does work, are there any nags or other problems I would expect to encounter?

    Thanks.
    One more quick question:
    I thought I read somewhere that if a box has two drives, only one (the original) needs to be pulled and hacked, true?

    The picture of the FA120 looks like the USB cable portion is separate. Is it? Do you have to supply your own? The description of what it comes with does not have the cable listed.

    Thanks to both Gunny and rbautch for the quick respones. I am this close (puts thumb and index finger closely together) to getting my three boxes hacked. Anyone know where I can find a new hackable unit to add to my collection?

    Weaknees.com sells refurbed driveless DSR7000's for $35. If you don't have an existing access card to use with it, buy one from them too.

    I'm zippering now...

    I noticed that my locals aren't available yet. How long until they come back???

    Also

    My tivo is not displaying in my wrt54g config page - status / local network / dhcp clients table. I can however telnet right into the tivo using 192.168.1.101. Strange??? Anyone know why its not displaying in the dhcp table?


    Thanks

    my wrt54G sucks at displaying dhcp clients accurately
    Locals can take up to 24 hrs to return or you can call 1-800 directv and use automated system saying you have a 711 messsage on your screen. That will re-authorize your locals automagically.

    I was able to find a new unit (a Hughes DVR80) at Value Electronics. :up: As soon as it gets here I'll start "working on your Zipper" - haha. :D

    Question on after zipper install.

    I did the clear and delete thing and lost my logos....I also did not install the USB 2.0 drivers which I now see work with the Linksys wusb11.

    Should I just run the uninstall script and resinstall running the tweak.sh file again and reinstall it? Thinking that I should be able to do this wirelessly without pulling the unit back upstairs and hard wiring it again? Thoughts, additions, deletions...

    rbaucht..check your PM's

    Yes, uninstall and then reinstall should do the trick.

    Well, my two HDVR2s were upgraded with no problems at all. Thanks to rbautch and Gunny.

    Getting my network configured with the bridges was nowhere near that easy, but thanks to Gunny, all is up and running nicely now.
