    Are you trying to Zipper a 40 gb drive that already has 6.2 on it? If so, say no to the image install.

    I always mentally want to rewind something if I miss what happened, even when I'm in the stands at my kids' ball games! I think they call this TS, "Tivo Syndrome".

    Just a thought...do y'all see yourselves moving toward a future where the scripts and zippers and instantcakes of the world install ALL the drivers, wireless or wired, to get closer to the U (universal) in USB? Or do the wireless and wired drivers spell trouble for one another? Enlighten us please. :)

    One thing I'm not clear on is if encryption was off before a slicer upgrade to 6.3a, will it still be off after all the rebooting is done and it's back up and running?

    Nope. Tivoapp is replaced with the 6.3a upgrade. Tivoapp is the application that gets patched to disable this stuff.

    I have Zippered several of my DirecTivos. My problem is that 2 of my units (HDVR2/SDDVR40) both keep losing the networking capabilities.

    When I zippered them both (using separate images obviously), they both could be seen in MRV, accessed via telnet (bash prompt) and also on my HDCP Client listing on my Linksys router, but I cannot see them on my network now a few weeks later via any of these options.

    They are both running wirelessly on my 802.11b wirelsss network using the Linksys USB11 v2.8 wireless USB network adapter.

    (by the way....where on the Tivo v.6.2 Setup screen can I see the ip address listed or signal strength if there is one)

    Any thoughts on why it would keep losing this connection? What are my options? Do I have to re-zipper (this is the second time this has happened on the SD-DVR40 as I have now Zippered it 2 times)?


    Thanks!!!!

    I cannot see mine either with my Linksys and they are wired. But with my wireless laptops I have had them "drop off the face of the earth" and the only way was to go into the router disable the wireless and then re enable it and it worked fine til the next time. Can you still see each on the other unit? If so then they are fine and not to worry.

    No there is not.

    Hello All

    I have a zippered RCA DVR 40 I had no problems with zippering the unit however I am having trouble with getting wireless working. I can get connection to Tivo via wired connection eg; bash and telnet and TWP. So when I go into TWP and try and change network to wireless it will work until the tivo reboots it then reverts to a wired connection.

    Cant understand why this happens. Does anybody have this problem???

    ttodd1,

    Thanks for the response I will try your suggestion with the router settings. And no, I can't see these Tivos listed from the Now Playing List....

    ftp is port 21
    mfs_ftp uses 3105
    make the tivo read/write by typing rw at a bash prompt
    there is no user/pass for ftp on tivo.

    I love tivoserver myself.
    I use it for video podcasts like dignation and rocketboom. I just have a symlink to my podcast folder in itunes.

    I see, so i want a program to use to get shows on my pc over to my Newly Zippered Tivo, im not too concerned about getting shows off of the Tivo. Would Tivo Server still be my best bet ?

    Thanks

    tivoserver is cool because it transcodes many formats including divx to tivo format.
    Tivo sees tivoserver as another tivo on your network, and transfers shows via mrv.
    pretty sweet.

    Are D-Link DWL-G122 USB Wireless adapters compatible?

    I just zippered a 300 GB hard drive, put it in the Tivo, but the D-Link Adapter doesn't seem to be working...

    I did forget to put the adapter in on the first boot after zippering, is that a problem? I can re-zipper it if I have to, not a big deal....

    I don't think that USB adapter is supported. FYI no 802.11g USB adapter works on a zippered Tivo. Here's the complete list of zipper supported adapters Zipper compatable USB adapters

    Does the new 6.3 software for the HR10-250 support any of the WIRELESS USB Etnernet adapters?

    If no, is there a way to use the NETGEAR FA120 adapter with something to get a wireless signal back to my wireless router?

    I really don't want to run cat 5 through the house...

    Thanks in advance.

    As I mentioned before I zippered my new HR10-250. But now im having problems. It likes to reboot alot. I thought maybe I was causing to much stress so i stopped recording and doing anything stressfull but watching tivo and the reboots still happen. Ive searched all the messages in the kernel and tverr log for information. I forced that mfscheck and it came back with no errors. I ran a clear and delete everything, it took 2 or 3 hours.
    Code:
    Oct 8 05:23:18 (none) kernel: All reference counts are OK.
    Oct 8 05:23:18 (none) kernel: mfscheck scan ends
    Oct 8 05:23:18 (none) kernel: mfscheck: 0 fatal errors, 0 severe errors, 0 warnings. 
    
    This is what seems to be repeating alot in the log every restart.
    Code:

    This also makes an appearance

    Oct 8 04:17:50 (none) Mediaswitch0[187]: Invoking rule 834: rebooting system
    As well as...

    Code:
    Reseting the video decoder since it appears to be frozen. 

    One thing I do notice is after it restarts the date in the log file is January 2nd until it changes back to the correct date. Is that normal or do I have some kind of dead battery? Any help is greatly appricated
