by tomorrow this would be done? very anxious to get started in hacking my unit
So, what would be the best use of this unit for me? I guess I can still hack it to get the kick out of it.
DANG...right after I bought the PTVNet CD, PTV Boot...I even ended up buying the InstantCake CD JUST TO MAKE SURE I always had a virgin 6.2 install...One ? about InstantCake if anyone knows...is there any difference between the DSR7000 and DSR704 version of InstantCake...those are the two Phillips DVR's I have..
I am going to hack my 7000 after I get the 704 up and running and will try the Zipper method on this one just to see the difference...
THANKS for the hard work..!!
ok, i never got to the step to run tweak.sh because im not sure how to telnet to my tivo without wireless network. Do i have to directly wire it to my computer in order to run this script?
Some drives have a setting for master with and without slave, also a cable select. Every new Tivo drive I have ever seen comes set for cable select.
My preference is not to use the cable select, just straight master ("single without slave" if that's an option), based on purely anecdotal experience, but with hundreds of drives.
BTW you'e been nominated for the JJBliss "NOT blessed by any means" Guide award. Quite an honor, congrats!
wired network usb/ethernet adapter into a router.
I've not seen any mentionof us on DDB yet.
Hope it stays that way.
There are differences between the different flavors of Instantcake and 6.2 software images. They are pretty subtle, and you shouldn't have any trouble using them interchangeably.
ok im back and succesfull it work great This Zipper script helped alot and even though it made things easy for us newbies its still help me understand what i was doing This is great Thank you
ok i pull the 120GB hd of the tivo and put it away,i then grabbed an 160GB hd follow the Zipper instruction and was able to load 6.2 image,3.1.5kernel, and all the hacks,my system info screen says account in good standing,but is asking me to make a call so i can use the DVR options,any idea what should i do?be easy on me im a newbie
See post 112.
Thanks,I whent there Im not running SP2 so i guess i cant telnet,i connected a usb/ethernet adapter but no sign of life,
BTW thanks for the quick responce
Did you connect your Tivo to your router? Check the router to see the IP address that was assigned to your Tivo? I added more information on network setup to the Zipper instructions just now. Have a look at the last few steps.
There is now a printable set of instructions included on the tools disk download.
this is EXCELLENT, just wondering why you couldn't adjust the Zipper website itself to be printable? great job as always, thank you
wow got eveything connected whent to my DHCP table found my ip,executed the script and picked my choices and done now i whent to your sig for the wireless script and im a litle confused about installing it,would you mind telling me which way you recommend,im still connected to the tivo through the usb/ethernet adapter,should i run the sh net-launch.sh or go straight to tivosh setSSIDwep.tcl command?I also have a NetGear WG111 wireless adapter if that helps(with the right serial #)
BTW this is awsome i got everything in
Tivosh setSSIDweb.tcl would be appropriate if you already set your static IP parmaters with the tweak script. However your WG111 is not compatible with 6.2. Read this and this .
ok,I also have the Lynksys game adapter the WGA54G can i use this one with this script?
BTW i whent with DHCP not static,is that ok?
ok i did it,Im using the WGA54G wireless adapter with 802.11g and its working great.Want to thank you guys for all you help specially rbautch and Gunnyman you guys are great fast answers and give us the rookie a chance to do this.
Do I need a version specific "Instantcake" for each model Directivo I have? It looks like I have to choose the model Tivo I am hacking on the purchase page, is this right??
I guess the *larger* question is: Are there any files/drivers/apps/etc that I have to get that *is* Tivo model specific?
If I read this right, I can use the original drive in my Tivo (saving the cost of purchasing a new drive) w/o worry *if* I have an "InstantCake" disk - right?
steve, I always recomend getting a new HD to anyone hacking a TiVo.
Put the old one in a drawer in case you need it.
But yes, you can instantcake back to a factory drive as long as you are using the instantcake specific to your DTivo model.
As for what the differences are between instantcakes, they are subtle, but mostly the different installs are available based on factory HD sizes, for instance a DVR80 image will not fit on a DVR40 unit. The other error you will run into is what is known as a 51 error, basically the unit notices it is running the wrong software. 51killer.tcl in /busybox fixes that problem.
