if you are running 6.2 already, you don't need instantcake, you just need the LBA48 Boot CD.
ah - thanks gunny!
Is there any similar product for a stand alone series 2?
nope (not yet anyway)
Thanks for the ideas. I figured it out. The issue had to do with my web filtering service. Now that the filter is off, TivO desktop is up and working again. The key learnings for all of this was your turning me onto Java HMO. What a great service!
Does the Zippered DTivo work with Galleon? Or is that 7.2 machines only?
sadly Gallon, which is an AWESOME app is Standalone Series 2 only.
I have a HDVR2 and a DSR708 that are both running 6.2. If I make a backup from one, can I restore and run zipper on both from the same backup or do I need to make a backup from each unit?
Well I think I found the first problem with my initial installation -- I didn't reboot after starting tivo up again, before running the tweak script. I didnt have to go through any "guided setup" so I didn't realize I needed to reboot again, before running the script. So I did it correctly on my second box. And I tried to do it again on my first one. I thought it worked - I was able to use MRV last night, but then today it is no longer seen on my network. Both boxes are wired to my router, and I am contemplating replacing it, to see if the problem is it.
But before I pulled the drive again (since I can't telnet to it), I thought I should take a look at the running one to see how everything is supposed to look. Well, I tried using Joe, but it won't work. I get
I eventually found the program in /etc/rc.d and tried starting it there. But I got the message:
This is from my box that is working, on a wired connection.
So now I am wondering if there is something else going on. How can I install joe from telnet? And, more importantly, what is the best way for me to re-zipper my first drive, without replacing its contents? (my linux skills are lacking)
To get joe to work, try typing the following command at bash:
ln -s /.joerc /tivo-bin/etc/joerc
...and then try to start joe again. If that doesn't work, uninstall/reinstall the enhancement script. The uninstall script is in /hacks, just run it with: sh
ln -s /.joerc /tivo-bin/etc/joerc
Should be fine GAM, both units will report that they are the same model number if you restore the same back up to each. If that bothers you make a back up of each and restore it.
Try rebooting first, and then check you router to see if it was assigned an address. Also try telnetting to it with the static IP you set in the Zipper script. If no luck, just start over from scratch and re-Zipper the drive.
I tried the "ln" command but get:
I know this may seem to be off-topic at first, but I am wondering, is the script supposed to make a directory /tivo-bin ? I cannot find it.
Thanks, as part of doing the zipper I will be using larger hard drives. Do I have to do anything to to use all the space (expanding ala Hinsdale) or will it use all the space automatically?
use /busybox instead of /tivo-bin
were you going to be renaming your backup to be 00000000001 like in the zipper instructions and letting zipper image for you? or were you going to backup/restore on your own?
if the latter, just follow hinsdale's guide then come back to the zipper.
I already have a backup that I will renam to 00000000001 per the instructions.
What do I do in this case?
the zipper will expand it to fill the drive for you.
Thank you for all your help and all your hard work making our Tivo experience more enjoyable!
no problemmo. just keep in mind you are going "off book" here with your method. It should work fine as long as you have named your back-up properly.
As far as the name of the backup is concerned, the guide screen shot has it as 000001 and in the previous post you had more zeroes in front. What is the correct name for the 6.2 image?
