    Tivoweb >> main menu >> net config

    Should I have the DHCP checkbox selected if I have my Tivo is getting its IP address from DHCP via my router?

    First of all i want to say Thank to everyone who made this possible.

    The Zipper Couldn't be more easier :)

    I finnaly decided to do something to my tivo after applying Sleeper back in '04.

    I started from scratch and followed every step listed.
    Bought PTVupgrade's Instantcake CD and LBA48 Boot CD connected drive to PC and everything went perfect.

    I then remember i didnt have my tivo networked at all so i was stock on doing the next step. After search my apartment form left to right i was able to find the TiVo Null Modem Serial Cable i bought back in '04 when i first started this hobby.

    I was able to use Hyperterminal and complete the script. Connected the Tivo to the TV and everything seems to be in order.

    I did notice a error when i tried to record a show. It said there was a hardware problem that i needed to correct before trying to record. I intructed me to restar the system to correct it but that didnt take.

    I did a delete all and it was at that screen after i left to work so hopefully that would solve it. (i think that did it last time i saw that error)

    Anyway now im looking forward to Networking my Tivo, i just need advice on the hardware to buy (It has to be wireless cause i have too many cables already)

    Can anyone point me to the right direction on this?

    BTW: I did this on the Hughe HDVR2.

    to get rid of the 51 hardware error you have to run

    51killer.tcl

    then reboot tivo. i had the same problem and this fixed the problem.

    Look at post 256 from gunny man

    ver 3.0 works too. Check Tivos website for a full list of compatible adapters. Has to be 802.11b.

    I may be wrong but I think you shouldn't mess with this 'net config' in TivoWebPlus unless you want to give the TiVo a static address. If it works fine now via DHCP don't mess with it.

    I havent experienced any wireless router problems and I have used both Linksys wireless and Netgear wireless routers...The only time you have to worry about compatibility is usually when you buy an AP or bridge...some manufacturers make those only compatible with their router hardware...

    Start with the Enhancements thread here . After that, just keep searching and reading.

    Guys, Zipper is terrific! Thanks for the fantastic mods. I am enjoying Tivoweb for the first time and I love it.

    One question: I ran 51killer because I was switching my old hard drive to a new unit and I was receiving Error 51. Yet, after running 51killer, I still cannot view my old programming. I guess I was under the mistaken impression that I would be able to view my old programming.

    I guess this part of the Enhancement Script pretty much answers my question:

    WARNING: Because the key generated for this nag is also used as part of the
    encryption process for tystreams, any encrypted (scrambled) streams that you
    currently have on the disk will be rendered useless!

    Is there any way to recover the old programming? If not, what is the best way to erase it all? Is there anything quicker than just using the Tivo Erase function?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    I was wondering about this as well, should I do a backup and restore using either hinsdale or weaknees guides according to "Note 1" then install "Zipper" then install "Enhancement Scripts" then I'll have my old recordings on the new drive with Zipper and E. Scripts? thanks

    Thanks for the zipper it rox. I havent had a chance to try it yet but I love tools that make things a bit more simple. Lets us concentrate on other important stuff. So thanks and greatly appreciated.

    So part of the process for doing this is by purchasing the LBA48 boot cd from PTVUpgrade. I did that, confirmation here

    The following products are available for immediate electronic delivery:

    Order#: 21120
    Date: 10/23/2005

    LBA48-401DD
    PTVupgrade LBA48 4.01 with Enhancements
    downloads ptvupgrade com download.php?sc=PTV&id=

    I removed the id param for safety as it still seems to link to the cd image. Anyhow when I browse the image I dont see the kernel in the correct format you all suggest. I see x:\s2_kernels\3.1.5\vmlinux.px.gz I can gunzip the file then I am left with vmlinux.px. Do I just re-gzip it with the name you guys have stated?

    Thanks.

    PS. Had to breakup URL per board ristriction

    woods are you on linux?
    The reason the file is listed teh way it is in teh guide is that Windows XP truncates the file name.
    the file you want is indeed vmlinux.px.gz
    just rename it to match the guide and you will be fine. The script takes care of gunzipping for you.
    And don't ask me what I'm doing up at this hr, dang flu put me to bed at 7:30 PM and has me up at 4:30 AM :(
