    Just post up if you have problems and we will try to help...

    I can verify though that the USB2.0 drivers for the wusb11 ARE faster...MUCH faster in my case!! I could tell a difference just by telneting into the machine!

    Now that I've zippered one Tivo I want to do another.

    If I purchase a DSR7000 from weaknees it won't come with an access card, so can I use an access card from my directors pack receiver with it?

    is it a P4 card?
    you MIGHT be able to. It depends on the mood of the CSR that day.

    I'm not sure what kind of card it is. I'll have to check when I get home.

    I have two I could use - one is in an old series 1 tivo already active and another in a directors pack receiver not actived. Could I just move the card from the series 1 tivo into the new DSR7000 without calling DTV?

    No, IIRC, they match the card number to the recivers IRD (?) number. You have to give both to activate. I think sometimes they even "claim" the cards are paired to the reciever permanently but I think that was debunked as CSR BS. But, you'll pretty much have to call.

    Since the DSR7000 is a non-RID tivo, the #722 trick should work. I pulled an old P4 card out of a standard DirecTV receiver, and it worked find with a Weakness DSR7000. Another option is to buy a card from Weaknees for $25.

    bnm81002, Yes, you can follow that guide to upgrading to a new larger hard drive preserving recordings..MAKE SURE you read thru it all once and twice before doing it...You do NOT necessarily have to test the backup after you do the actual backup. You can skip that part as when you follow the option to upgrade to a larger drive preserving season passes, recordings it will overwrite that image if you installed it to test. Took about 3.5 hours to do mine, but it was pretty full too.

    summerall, it does NOT install that program.

    sadly tserver is one of the subjects we can't talk too much about here.

    Can you simply tell me what directory the zipper install places the files?

    look in /busybox
    to start tserver simply type tserver from bash.
