    I totally don't understand this question.
    Want to see if it's running?

    Wow! Nice to see someone doing their homework, rather than firing off questions that have been asked before.

    Sounds like it's time for another tivo!

    Gunny, does the zipper automatically turn off encryption and if so, how hard is it to turn back on? I want all of my existing shows to be able to be MRV'd with a newly zippered drive.

    well according to ttodd encryption doesn't effect MRV.
    Superpatch turns it off.
    Turning back on would be as simple as restoring an unmodified tivoapp.

    I have completed the steps and ran the enhancments.... I am not able to get any local channels. Did I miss something or does it just take sometime for them to work?

    they will come back in ~ 24 hrs or you can call 1800 directv and enter extension 722 to get your card reauthorized in 5 mins.

    this was by far one of the easiest things I have ever done. I love this my wife was surprised how fast I got both tivos unhooked hacked and turned back on. Hey goonyman is it worth getting the usb 2.0 hardware for connecting to the network or is the usb 1.1 ok to use. The main thing Ill be doing is watching shows from one tivo to the other.

    I would assume he is having the same problem I am having on my HDVR2's, I installed the script and I can see it running, but no Caller ID display. I try running NCID in debug mode and I just see the *RING* with no caller ID info on it. I've pretty much given up on getting caller ID to work on my 2 units.

    First thing to test is the on-screen display. From bash, try:
    Code:
    echo "NCID-test" | /var/hack/bin/out2osd
    ...and see if it displays.

    Im going to get my 2 usb 2.0 network adapters right now and then I will start the actual process. I pulled the drives last night and put the files on now the actual hacking starts.

    You can call 1-800-531-5000 and enter "711" when it prompts for a three-digit message. The ANI will recognize your phone number if you call from your registered phone so you don't need to talk to anyone or enter your phone number. You don't need to reauthorize your cards with the 722 extension (I didn't even know that worked but I guess it makes sense). 711 will reauthorize your subscribed channels on all your active cards. For a while there I was using it every other day. :D

    Or, you can wait 24 hours and they should return. I have had them return in less than an hour but I think that was just good timing.

    You do get a on screen display with that command.

    You DO subscribe to caller-id service from your phone company, right?

    If you mean YOU saw "NCID Test" on screen, that's good, that means that the out2osd program is working, and you problem is indeed in NCID.

    First, as I just pointed out to another poster, you must subscribe to caller ID service from your phone company. Do any "regular" caller ID displays on your telephones work?

    Assuming that Caller ID is active and working on your phone lines, did you edit any of the configuartion files (ncid.conf, ncidd.conf and ncidd.alias)?

    Do you see any Caller ID entries in the log (ncid.log)?
