R is reburbished. SE is new. I don't think it has anything to do with the adapter itself.
I ran the enhancement script and said yes to everything. However when I hooked up the tivo I still can't record.. So I tried to reconnect my tivo to my computer and now I can't telnet into the tivo.
What is wrong?
That is correct. However, I can't get the new ptv boot disk to boot. I've burned three disks to no avail. Does it matter if the kernel on the boot disk is an old version as long as the kernel on the zipper tools disk is the proper one?
It's probably something simple, but I have been working on this all day for 12 hours. Maybe I just need a break. There is always the Instantcake 6.2, but I really would like to keep my recordings.
In the meantime, I put the original 30gig disk with 3.1.1 back in. Boy, are those menus slow...
it can make a difference IF your boot disk doesn't properly recognize drives over 137 GB in size but other than that, no no difference.
Are you burning the CD in iso 9660 mode or joliet mode?
You cant run the enhancement script unless you are connected to your tivo with a telnet session. I'm confused. Try to be more specific.
Rbautch & Gunny
short easy explaination is this:
mfsrestore uses tivo BASIC (standalone) quality for its estimates of new space.
Tivo has reserved space for its "clips" yellow star ads and the like.
This space is not a fixed amount of space it is a percentage of total space.
120 hrs variable is pretty normal.
Did you see 140 plus hrs on the system info screen too or just mfsrestore?
Only on mfs restore - have not seen on system screen.
ok then, your Tivo is fine
how can I go about doing this? I've been using send to D: (my cd-rw drive) and it says "files ready to be written to CD", I ok it and it writes the files to the CD, I checked the CD and all the files from the tools disk are on the CD
You cannnot use the windows 'send to' function to make this CD.. YOu need a program (I use Nero Burning Rom) to make a bootable ISO disk.
I am attempting to create the CD in Joliet mode with Nero and CD Burner XP Pro3 and none of them will boot properly. I've made six coasters already.
Make that seven...
Man this is frustrating...
You might want to include in the instructions to have folks to delete X hours of shows in SD mode / Y hours of shows in HD mode, to ensure there is ample space for the zipper & scripts to run / install. I suspect those of us who've had "Suggestions" enabled have full or pretty full HDs (as was my case while trying to run the zipper script). If you already have it in there & I missed it - never mind <grin>
actually tivo software partioned are separate from the mfs partitions where recordings are stored.
The tivo software partitions are a fixed size and the same no matter how much recording space is used up.
How / why did I get a message to the effect of "Disk full" ??
I reinstalled it to my TiVO and deleted some recordings & tried again - no more message. Weird.
The boot disk should be burned in ISO 9660 mode.
Also, make sure you are selecting "Burn from image" in the menu. Or whatever the wording is. You can't just make it a data cd. You should be creating two separate disks. The Boot disk which needs to be burned as an image, and the tools cd, which needs to be burned in Joliet mode.
Now I am even more confused (if that's even possible ). I burned the tools disk in windows xp pro with the Sonic applet that came with my DVD burner. The tools disk worked fine (or so I thought). Its the boot disk that I am having trouble with.....
what does your boot disk look like when you explore it's contents in Windows XP?
