    elseed:
    /var/hack/bin/elseed -s 30 -t 15 -b 390 -r 50 &
    For elseed, those are the options I use.

    ccxstream:
    /var/hack/bin/ccxstream &

    thanks

    Thanks, nosaj, as soon as I get the info on cachecard, I'll post an experimental prototype for all three new hacks.

    i don't think there is an easy way to see the cachecard state, perhaps a half on/off button is the easy solution here...

    or just assume it is on when the tivo starts and set up a flag on /tmp, it will syncronize anyway...

    I think I'll pursue your second suggestion -- assume cachecard is running, set a flag to that effect, and if it's not running, you'll have to "stop" it once before you can start it. Not too bad. I'm taking off for the weekend, so look for something around the middle of next week.

    I think I might have found a problem. If I run MFS_FTP from Hackman the button alters to Stop as it should. If I then go out of Hackman and back in the button has reverted back to Start even though it's still working which then attempts to restart it if I click it. It used to work fine for me on the older betas and everything is set up correctly in the .cfg file.

    I haven't been able to replicate the problem. Are you sure mfs_ftp didn't shut down on its own? When you telnet in and do a "ps ax", what entry comes up for mfs_ftp? Hackman is looking for "mfs_ftp.tcl" and if it doesn't find it (exactly), it concludes that mfs_ftp isn't running. If it shows a different entry, please let me know and I'll adjust accordingly. Thanks for the heads up!

    Many apologies PortlandPaw, you're right. If I ran it manually from the bash prompt it seems to run okay for a few seconds and then when I check with ps ax it's not running. I'm not sure if I had the latest version but I installed it a while ago so I got the current release from Another Place, deleted the version on TiVo and reinstalled it and all is working well now. Again, many apologies :eek:

    IMHO Hackman is very similar to sanderton's work in approach and practicality. Simply a hack most people want, well-executed.

    Thanks PortlandPaw, for thinking of it and delivering it.

    I'm especialy looking forward to the ccxstream version as I use XBox Media Center with my TiVos very siuccessfully but don't always remember to start ccxstream.

    Again, many thanks for hackman!

    Apparently Riley put a time limit on mfs_ftp 1.29Q. I found this out at the "forum which shall not be named".

    You can downgrade to the P version, or reload the Q version.

    This is kind of like programming in the dark, since I can't test any of these additions:
    1. cachecard
    2. elseed
    3. ccxstream

    But take a look at this experimental version [obsolete version deleted] and if something doesn't work right or you get any error messages (I suspect you might!) be sure to cut, paste and post them here. I'll keep dabbling until I get it right.

    And thanks again for the kind words.

    Ok, quick reply: Look in line 9 of the config:
    asdfasf# See ReadMe for explanations of these switches:
    :)

    After I removed the asdfasf, I get two cachecard entries, one that I can start and one that I can stop. Odd (I'm on a series 2 dtivo.). Plus no elseed or ccxstream entries.

    OK, try this one [obsolete deleted]. Almost makes me want to go out and buy a cachecard!

    Now, no more cachecard stuff. elseed and ccxstream both appear. Starting ccxstream works. But I can't shutdown either hack. (I have elseed start at boot.) progress...

    Kind of like playing chess by mail, isn't it? This should help.

    NOTE: Obsolete Revised Experimental 4 deleted

    It helped indeed. Everything works (or doesn't when I click stop). Good job.

    Well, it looks like we need a cachecard user to try my experimental version.

    I'll upload one soon.
