I actually did that too so i guess im set for that as well.
Gunny (and others), your work is valuable. I find the guides and scripts extremely useful, even as a seasoned Linux veteran (I do admin work on Unix/Linux for a living).
It is because the DirecTivo software is so darn stable that once I get it hacked I don't mess with it, thus I forget all of the Tivo-specific knowledge (that I had to learn studying at DDB forums for hours because they abhor guides) from the last time I did a hack. I don't want to make a lifelong hobby out of hacking these boxes, I just want to get them hacked/upgraded and leave them alone.
When my situation permits, Mr. Gunny, I will be sending something your way via PayPal.
Why, thank you
I guess that you have added that Zipper feature huh? now I have to burn another CD-R disc but great work as always
just use cdrw like the rest of us
I know I know but haven't had time to buy any yet, you know how that is when one is so busy
I ran the Zipper script on my Tivo drive, but I seem to be unable to telnet to my TiVo.
I have a NetGear FA120 (installed today).
I see that the TiVo is getting an IP address, but telnet to that address doesn't connect.
I also get no response from a ping.
My only concern is I've got something out of sync with the tivo "netfilter" files.
A couple of months ago, I did the "unguide" steps up to installing the drive back in my TiVo, but never got around to buying and installing a network adapter. I noticed tonight that my "netfilter-notenabled" file (from the unguide steps) is no longer in the tivo /etc directory.
Tonight I ran the Zipper shell, and now I have the following "netconfig" files:
894 Nov 3 2004 netfilter-disable
1877 Nov 3 2004 netfilter-neutered
No mention of it.. but I got an HR10-250 6 weeks ago & was in for 2 yrs from that point - so not an issue really. I've been w/ DTV for many years & have been very happy, I expect I'll be with them long after the agreement expires.
as long as you do not have netfilter-enable your firewall on the tivo is NOT causing the problem.
What about ping (or lack thereof...) -- should the Tivo respond to ping?
yes it should
unless you are somehow on a different subnet than your tivo, or you have a firewall issue on your pc, or perhaps don't have the ip address correct.
Lots to explore.
start with the IP address. On most routers I have seen the tivo shows up as its TSN. make absolutely certain you are telnetting, pinging the correct IP.
All checked out so I went back to basics and checked the cable My Cat 5 wire didn't work.
How odd that it got an IP address but can't actually communicate... Have to cut the ends off and re-crimp new ones on it!
BTW -- the TSN now shows up!
Sorry to bug you with this but your help made me look at the not-so-obvious!!!
there's a reason tech support people always ask "is your computer actually turned on?"It makes you look at EVERYTHING
Glad you're up and running
I am indeed on XP but have a linux server and a windows2003 server and several distro's running in VirtualPC just to mess with each to find what I like for desktop use. But, alas, no linux is ready for desktop in my Opinion. This Tivo hacking is all new to me and am very excited for some reason. Thankyou for the process script and your time here. Greatly appreciated.
Flu is terrible. Hope you feel better soon, and anyone else here with the flu. That stuff sux.
Rbautch is the main power behind the Zipper so we all owe him a beer but your thanks is appreciated
Now, is this referring to the 'ToolsCD' download? I'm assuming that would be the heart of the zipper procedure.
Ok, I burned the bootCD and I can boot to it fine.. A bunch of info runs by on the screen ending with identifying where all my drivers are hooked up and then identifies the IDE ports and then just stops. Nothing happens after that. One time I hit a key on the keyboard while it was sitting there and it gave me some error about my keyboard. Would having a wireless keyboard/mouse have any effect on this?
need to have usb or ps/2 mouse and keyboard.
oh there are drivers out there in Linux for those devices but not for a boot disk that loads a mini linux distro on ramdisk
