If has the killhdinitrd'd kernels on it that CD would be fine.
Thanks. It has the folder exactly named S2_KERNE\3_1.5\VMLINUX_ I just want to make it's the right version as I thought I saw something somewhere that said that 6.2 uses a different kernel version than 4.01b.
Also on my added question, I just noticed that the version history pdf file indicates that support has been added for the usb200m is fine. So I assume then it' fine to use?
You can use the USB200M if a) it is a version 1 or b) if the Tivo has been Zippered. Version 2 units won't work until the Zipper is completely installed due to driver replacement. You can tell which version by looking at the Model sticker on the adapter.
You will need to run the tweak script before you can use the 200m. If you have a serial cable yoiu can use that to telnet in and run tweak after that the 200m should be fine.
I took your advice and bought a Netgear FA120. Hook it up to my Hr10 and rebooted. Still nothing. So I took apart my tivo and rezippered it. Hooked it back up and still nothing. I did some more reading and found out that the D-Link DUB -e100 should work. I went and got one and did the same steps and still doesn't work. Any help would be great.
I got a quick question that i'm not sure on. I Just upgraded my HDVR2 to 6.2 via the phone line, is it now ready to be zippered? Or do i need a virgin image from instantcake or something? I don't care too much about losing my recorded programs so its no big deal either way.
It's ok to zipper.
When you say nothing, what exactly does that mean? Do you get a power light on the adapter? A link light? How are you trying to connect?
No power. No light. I have two other tivo's and everything works on those.
try a serial null modem cable.... it should do the trick....
What will that do.
allow you to run the tweak.sh script via a telnet prompt.... then say yes to the usb 2.0 drivers, you should then be able to use the fa120 or usb200m.... the reason you cant use it now could be either because the drivers were corrupted on the dtivo, or the usb 2.0 ports are bad... this will allow you to test the ports by getting the drivers installed.... you can use this tutorial i created to learn how to use hyperterminal to connect to your dtivo....i have attached a pic that shows you how to create the serial null modem cable.... all you need is some wire...(i used intercom wire because it is a solid wire, and is a small gauge... and since it was a 4 wire bonded together, i only used 3 of the wires and stripped the other off, leaving a nice clean cable...)....then get the following...(a 1/8 inch stereo mini plug (one with screw terminals instead of the solder ones makes it easy)....and a serial db9 female connector (crimp connectors make it easy..)... then assemble according to the pic.... it is really that easy... when you attach the wires to the stereo mini plug, the shortest terminal on the back is TD, the middle one is the RD, and the longest is the GND....it literally takes 5 min to make, and costs about 5-10 to make depending if you spend more to get the screw terminal (solderless) stereo mini plug or the cheap one that you will have to solder the wires to...
If the FA-120 doesnt work, neither will the D-Link (unless it's a bad adapter). When you booted the tivo for the first time, did you wait for it to reboot automatically? You could also try the other USB port on the tivo.
That's the thing is it doesn't reboot like the other tivo's did. I have rezippered it about three times and it doesn't reboot. The adaptor works. I tried it on the other tivo's. Why wouldn't reboot after it has been zippered?
Try manually rebooting, and then see if you can get a connection.
Already tried that. Didn't work.
Are you using the correct Tivo software for the HR10? All the DirecTivo series 2 use version 6.2 software, but the HR10-250 uses the 3.1.5f. Check the Tivo-Zipper web page for more info.
Yes, I'm using 3.1.5f from ptvupgrade.
Need a little help here...
I have a Phillips Tivo2 Directv, 40 gig. I hooked up my tivo hard drive through a usb case I had for an external. It wouldn't show up under my computer until I partitioned it, but that deleted the contents of the tivo drive and now my tivo is stuck on "powering up". I downloaded PTV's boot cd and instantcake naked version for my Tivo. However, I am on a laptop, and have my tivo drive connected via USB. It shows up as drive E. When I run the boot cd, and try to install Zipper, the only drive options are A B C D. What can I do? Any help will be appreciated!
Since I can see my drive via my computer, is there a way to just drag and drop the original files in there instead of going through boot discs?
ugh I hate crossposting but I answered your question where u posed it in the Upgrade center.
