    sorry, I missed the question. The last reboot occurred while I was sleeping. It crashed about 8 hours before that while I was watching a recorded show. I think rbautch is on to something with the HD. I'll try another drive tonight. Thanks for the help and all the work you guys have done on this.

    It has been a while since I peered into the Tivo Hacking Forums.

    I am glad to see that someone is following in my footsteps. I am certain that some will trash you guys for becoming "Glory Whores" when your only intention is to HELP others easily hack their Tivos. For this you are to be commended.

    The Knoppix-Lite ISO that I created could be used as an alternate to the PTV disk. It has a very small footprint, LBA48 Tivo compiled kernel and many of the Series 2 tools. You could also automate you script to start as I did with TivoScripts. If you search around you should be able to find a download site for it.

    Regards,


    Sleeper

    Thanks Sleeper!
    Your ISO was certainly our inspiration.

    I assume you are talking about printing the instructions. A very good idea...I'd add a downloadable Word or text file you can print.

    ok i just used the zipper to hack my directivo, it was very easy to use, however i have a few questions. When i reinstalled the new hdd after using the zipper. tivo prompted me with an error 51. What can i do to solve this. and next when i bought the instantcake cd i bought the one meant for my hughes directivo like the zipper guide said, but after applying the zipper to the hdd i dont see any network settings to be able connect the tivo to my network for ftp, telenet etc. was i supposed to buy an image for a standalone s2 tivo in order to apply this hack on a directivo?

    I need some help...

    I connect cdrom as hda and harddrive as hdc.

    Insert PTV boot cd and boot from it.

    > Please press "F1-F6" for more instructions blah blah or hit <enter> to boot.

    I press ENTER

    > Please hit <enter> to continue!

    I press ENTER again

    >PTVupgrade/#

    I assume is this the scary looking prompt and so replace cd's with the Tools cd and I type:

    mount /dev/hda/cdrom

    Then I press ENTER

    >mount: can't find /dev/hda/cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab


    Help what am I doing wrong???

    you need a space in there it should read:
    mount /dev/hda /cdrom

    to get rid of error 51, telnet in and run 51killer.tcl
    as for your 2nd question, there aren't any network setup screens in 6.2
    BUT, the excellent tivoweb install included in the Zipper has the netconfig module built in.
    Just make sure you are running DHCP.

    gunny -

    I've hacked my drive but before I put it in my tivo should the jumper be set to anything in particular?

    Thanks

    When you ran tweak.sh, it should have said: "No network parameters found in MFS. Do you want to enter them now? "
    This is the place to enter the IP address of your Tivo and router. Or, you can use TWP after the fact.

    You cannot set wireless params from scratch using TWP/wired adapter. What DOES work is the wireless script in my signature. After you set up wireless params with the script, you can modify them in TWP.

    weird question:

    I bought a dsr7000 from someone but I am a dish subscriber. thought to buy dsr7000 so that I can play with it.

    que:
    1. can I input the dsr7000 from dish receiver via s-video or composite and record the events. ofcourse after hacking.
    2. also, can I schedule to record future events for 10-15 hours. I beleive dsr will let me record ~30hrs with 40g.
    3. If 1 and 2 is good can I output the recorded to some media for permanent save.

    Please, help the needy.
