    I performed the zipper on my tivo and said yes to all enhacements. I am able to get music and photos to play on my tivo from my computer, but I am unable to use tivowebplus (open browser and put in IP address). I tried to restart it by typing twprs (as suggested in this thread) and it says that the /var/hack/tivowebplus/tivoweb: no such file or directory.

    I am able to connect via telnet.

    This is a wireless connection using the FA120 and the linksys game adapter.

    Any suggestions on determining how to get this to work?

    alright I'll work on making a serial cable after I find a tutorial somewhere. Thanks for the help, my adaptor is only useable with standalone tivos version 7.x so I guess serial is my only possible free option...

    If you answered yes to the tivowebplus install, then tivoweb should be in /var/hack/tivowebplus. Navigate to that directory to see if anything is there. If not, you can either re-run the script, or manually copy the tivowebplus archive to that directory.

    re run the enhance script portion and make sure you follow the directions for XP SP2 if that's what you are using.

    Gunnyman just a quick follow up to all the fun I'm having with this thing of beauty.

    An earlier thread expressed concern about DHCP IP assignments not matching the IP you set with Zipper!. On my first machine, I went to the router DHCP table and noticed that xxx.xxx.xxx.103 was set, when I had told it to use xxx.xxx.xxx.109. Well the fact is I could telnet to 109 but not 103, so it would seem this is a non-problem.

    Also, I used a Linksys 200M and it worked fine. Must have been one of the v1 models. I still intend to buy the Netgear dongles anyway. The Linksys is just very flimsy.

    I know I'm pushing it now, but is there a dummies list of valid telnet commands somewhere? Never been there or done that telnet thing.

    This is really a spirit booster. Words are inadequate for the great service you and your partner have provided to the hacking challenged among us.

    go google for a bash primer.
    telnet is just the connection between you and your tivo.

    Just wanted to chime in with the ups and downs of my mostly successful first efforts of Tivohacking thanks to the Glorious Zipper. In the space of about an hour I was able to remove my HDVR2's stock drive (running 6.2) and hit it with the Zipper's goodness.

    I'd paid attention and made sure to order a supported wireless adapter from Amazon -- a Linksys WUSB11 that was $35 with $25 rebate! Initially it didn't seem to have any link light, but I swapped it to the other USB port, rebooted, and it blinked happily. Others seem to have had similar results.

    Unfortunately I couldn't see the tivo from my PC at first, but after a half hour of fiddling I realized it was my fault. I'd chosen an IP of 192.168.1.1 for the Tivo, but my router was configured as 192.168.0.1. I'd assumed they shared the same subnet and would see each other, but they did not. Since I'd already reinstalled the drive at this point I just reconfigured my router with a 192.168.1.2 address and I was in business. Telnet, ftp, and tivoweb all worked like a charm.

    I'm now struggling with NCID, which would really be the Killer App for The Wife (I'm thinking you've all heard this before). I seem to be blessed with one of the DTivos that just can't speak CallerID -- at least not in a way that NCIDD can be made to understand. I can throw goofy messages onto the screen with out2osd all day long, but ncidd can't seem to find any callerid signals.

    I realize this isn't the forum for that can of worms, but I still read through the thousands of posts here hoping someone else had successfully gotten NCIDD happy on a hacked HDVR2. If anyone has any pointers I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks again to the ZipperCreators. It's very appreciated.

    Here is another success story... Got my 2 DVR80's going last night. Zippered them right out of the box. Worked great and I am very thankful for all those who made this possible!!!!!!

    I do have one question... When running the tweak script, no matter what I choose it goes through the automated install. It also looks like it bypasses several items. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it but no matter what I choose, it still goes through the automated install. Any ideas?

    Thanks again for everything!!

    Ok I'm a complete newb to the TiVo world.

    Here is what I have:
    R54040 TiVo Series 2 REV.4 DVR 40 Hour
    Linksys WUSB11

    What I want to be able to do:
    1) Easily make DRM FREE (if possible) DVD's of content I record on my TiVo.
    2) Get a USB to Ethernet adapter that will work with my TiVo.
    3) Try out some of the other TiVo hacking goodness out there.
    4) Maybe upgrade the HD at a later date.

    What I know:
    I am far from new to hacking my electronic toys. I've modded all of my current gen consoles myself.

    I know and use *nix so that aspect of hacking the TiVo wont be a problem either.

    So WTF am I doing here asking questions? I've spent the last 45 minutes going through FAQ's and sites and I havent come across a complete TiVo newb guide yet. But my basic questions are can I just get the "zipper" image and go, or does my specific TiVo setup require me to go another route. Also once my TiVo is all nice and hacked, how/what do I need to setup to start transfering content to DVD?

    Please don't burn me to bad.
