    Yeah, but Gunny and Russ won't be at "Legend Level" until the Guide gets "deprecated" :D

    In my humble opinion, the greatest thing about "The Zipper" is the peace of mind of knowing you are never more than a drive to Best Buy away, and about 5 mins of answering Y or N to a restored TiVO.
    Ganted, if your hard drive crashes, you do lose programs, but you will be back recording before Gunnyman can scold you for editing rc.sysint.author in Windows notepad.
    Thanks guys, great job.

    Because we all know "editing rc.sysint.author in Windows notepad" = NO WORKEY!! :D I might have to sit down after my DTivo is done and come up with a NO WORKEY FAQ!

    Great post guys.....and great work also; you two deserve a lot of credit...
    i just have one question....after i zippered my 250 gb drive and installed it in the tivo and it goes thru the guided setup...it then goes to channel 201 (the info channel) and then i change it to another channel....it says "you have inserted the wrong access card " and gives me the card no. and it is the same card that i have ...i only have one......i didnt telnet into it yet, i stopped after that and wondered what was the problem....any ideas?

    c0met,
    try calling 1800 directv and when it asks if you have a 3 digit code on your screen punch in 711.
    this will send an automated re-authorization to your Tivo.
    Do you have access to your "Now Playing" list?
    if not, telnet in and run 51killer.tcl and reboot the unit.

    Now I know it's a success. We have the first use of "Zipper" as a verb. ;)

    After getting zipper and enhancements done.... I connected to Web plus and noticed that cron scheduler isn't running. Does it need to be? Don't recall it asking if I wanted it running but just to install

    TY

    how do i get this usb ethernet thing to work, i plugged it in and hooked up the wires but the tivo isnt getting an ip assigned.

    EDIT:
    Nevermind i just was doing some searching and found out that the linksys adapter i bought is incompatable, just my luck right lol. Well now im off to circuit city to buy a different one.

    I doubt Circuit City has a compatible 802.11b adapter. You may need an older model, best obtained from Ebay. Check out the links in post 137 for more info.

    Cron is probably running, but perhaps Hackman didn't pick it up. Type "ps" at bash, and look toward the bottom to see if "crond" is one of the processes that are currently running. You could also open the logs that are in /var/spool/cron/cronlogs to see if cron is working. There is more info on cron in the Enhancement script thread. There is also information on getting Hackman to find your hacks in the Hackman thread.
