Hello All! It has been a LONG time since I have been on here. My hacked Tivo has been serving me well..up until this missing local problem. I bought my Tivo already hacked..but I am pretty decent with computers and build them myself. Over the years I have browsed through the ZIPPER thread and am somewhat familiar with how it works. Like others though, I'm not real patient..but I am willing and I believe able to do this so here goes... Can I do this to get my locals back and still have all the hacks? 1. Get the 6.4 image and networking cd's from DVRupgrade.com to enable the usb ports for networking. 2. Run them on a new drive. (or the original drive) 3. Once installed back in the Tivo, open up TELNET and run the script. I would do all of this in accordance with the instructions on the original ZIPPER thread. Would this get me back in business? I've never used the MRV feature so I'm not worried about that...but other features...including an "unmentionable" one I don't want to live without if I can help it.. Thanks!
