yeah it is, but that shouldn't happen with Zipper.
Sounds good. Thanks Gunny. Guess i'll be locked up in the office for a few hours hacking away. Have a good one.
Sorry for not being more clear, but essentially my idea would be to have a setup where you ran a phone cord from the directv's phone port into your computers modem port. Essentially, my idea is to trick the DirecTivo into thinking that your computer was really DirecTV, and fool it into installing the updates via the phone port. That way, you could just send it a brand new OS with HMO enabled, so you wouldn't need to touch your Tivo's innards; the updates would be delivered via the phone jack. Would this be feasable?
for too many reasons to explain here.
This caught my attention. I just need a clarification of my understanding:
So, I can use the Hinsdale method to preserve my SP's, settings, and recordings onto a larger hard drive (I'm upgrading from the 40GB DirecTiVo to a QuickView 120GB drive).
Then I run The Zipper on the larger hard drive and it will make the changes and still preserve my SP's, settings and recordings.
Is this correct?
The Weaknees method also works.
Sorry to be dense, but I'm just about to pull the trigger on hacking my two DirecTiVo's:
If I use the Hinsdale method to save my current setup, do I still want to have the Zipper script use image 00001? In other words, do I replace my current v6.2 OS with the 00001 v6.2 OS?
just skip the image stuff.
After looking at my DNS again I noticed I had my DNS set up to the wrong address. I appreciate all the help getting this to work. My wife loves it. She really likes not getting up to see who is calling when the phone rings. Many props to these two guys. If anyone is feeling a little skittish about doing this it is well worth it. Took about 30 min to do everything on both tivos.
Gunny, I type cd /busybox at the bash prompt but nothing really happens. Then I typed in ps and then tivoftpd and still command not found. Are we having fun yet!!!! lol
But I guess what I really need to know Russ (or Gunny) is can I do this process on my TIVOS that have already had their drives upgraded? Will I lose all my recordings and such by using a different image other than what is already on there?
something ain't right.
you can zipper without losing shows. The image install is OPTIONAL.
Four SD-Tivo's successfully Zippered, but I have been hesitant to Zipper the HR10-250.
Any results from this test?
OK, I'll take the dive tomorrow. But several very basic questions...
On your directions, you state:
"If you have an HR10-250 Tivo, download Alphawolf's all-in-one utility set to /busybox, and
make sure /busybox is in your PATH statement"
I downloaded the utility which includes tar and dos2unix. Why do these need to be ftp'd to a HR10-250? Do they need to be ftp'd prior to running tweak?
Author file reads as follows:
Is that correct?
Okay. Rezippered and assigned 192.1681.120 ip address. I cannot ping or telnet to that address, but I can to 192.168.1.102. Still no ftp, no ps, no ftpd. I checked and made another zipper cd with all the latest files. At no point during the zipper install do I see any of the rbautch or other files being copied to the tivo drive. It does not tell me what the sysinit.author file is either, just tells me success go stick drive in tivo and it does boot fine and lights up the ethernet adapt.
