I never counted the zeros
Wouldn't it be better to use your own backup though so all your settings, i.e. season passes won't have to be reset?
Great work with the zipper. Even an noob like me can make it work. I have a question and have been searching this site for answers, but I am unable to find them.
My DTivo was zippered this weekend, rebooted, and enhancements installed. Working great and watching TV!! I have set the IP address and can start up Tivowebplus. Great!!! I can look at the now showing screen and see some shows that have been recorded since zippering. When I click on the show, it takes me to another screen with additional info on the show. How does one go about watching the show on my computer?
I have installed TiVo Desktop. In the settings screen, it shows my computer (10.0.0.12) and the address for my TiVo (10.0.0.11) but cannot access the DTivo. The error message says no TiVo DVR's available on the network. Have I missed a step? I checked everything I could think off, short of going to the "other" forum.
Any help or guidance is sincerely appreciated.

Zipper and enhancements
Ok, I am still unable to telnet in to my Tivo after changing from a Belkin to a Netgear FA120. I'm not sure where I could be going wrong since it seems that this process should be pretty simple.
Since I have no access to the box (serial connection also does not seem to work but not sure it it's my cable or the tivo) my only way to see what's happening is to put the drive back in a PC. This is clearly not optimal.
So, it's there any way I'm not aware of that I can t-shoot this? I can see that the IP I am using (192.168.0.105) is sending out discovery packets on the network, but it's not responding to ping or telnet. Any thoughts?
our directions for restoring assume a NEW empty tivo image. The beginning of the zipper says you should use hinsdale to back/up and restore to a new drive before zippering anyway.
You won't be using tivodesktop to view shows. that's only for standalones.
As for what you need to do next, its head over to ddb and do some reading because we aren't allowed to discuss such thngs here.
Thanks Gunnyman for the tip. I was afraid that would be the answer. I guess that I should be PITF4O5T for that post
nah I just won't talk to ya at the gas pump
Both of my units are running 6.2 and are unhacked, I thought I could make a backup and use for the zipper procedure. Is this not ok? Should I only use the one off Instantcake?
Will it mess up my hacked Dtivo to hook it up back to the phone line? Was curious if it will undo the enhancement script and Zipper if I do. I heard that DTV is going to unmirror any DVR's that hasn't phoned home in 3o days in the near future
backing up and restoring is fine just do hinsdale method then use teh zipper
I was wondering how long it would take for that rumor to get here.
Honestly I don't think DTV would do that. Churn would be insane.
As for will it mess up your hacked tivo, it shouldn't but the route commands placed in the author file will prevent a call to tivo from getting thru anyway.
Great work! I envy your coding skills!
As an idea, would something like this scenario work? :
Would it be possible to just plug the DTivo phone plug into a modem, and initiate a connection into tricking the DTivo that it was talking to DirecTV? If so, this would allow for a MORE than seamless installation, as you wouldn't need to even open your tivo, or run any scripts.
Anyway, think this is possible? It would certainly be very cool if it was made!
Sounds like it never un-tarred the joe archive. Uninstall/reinstall the script, and try again. After the script runs, it should copy a file called .joerc to the root directory. It's invisible, so the only way to see it is with vi.
Exactly what would you be trying to make the DTivo do?
Guys I have used your zipper which I have to say I love BTW to hack 2 Tivo's with no problems. But my brother has a Tivo he would like hacked and I haven't tried it on his scenario yet. he has a dual drive where he bought a 2nd drive a while back from Weaknees just to add capacity. He has no hacks. Can I use the zipper on a dual drive Tivo? If so do I just pull the original or do they both have to be pulled from the Tivo?
Thanks for any info you can give me..
I have a unit in the exact same condition. Just pull the master drive and Zipper that one. Works perfectly!
What is the default password for TWP that installs w/ zipper? Trying to edit Tivoweb.cfg to enable port forwarding to TWP, but Hackman prompts to "Enter password to enable /disable dangerous features...." etc.
EDIT - "password" is the answer to my own question. sorry to post.
