    thanks much.

    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?

    Yes.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    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?

    Thanks

    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.
