    And you call me a dork over SMS messages? :) I mean, I have a lot of computing crap and electronics crap running around here, but no life-size figures of anything...

    This is probably going to end up being like pissing in the wind. But has anybody called your attention to the fact that a 7' Vader, is just a BIG doll? :eek: :D

    No. And just because for good luck I rub his nose every morning on the way out doesn't mean he's a big doll, either. :p

    Is this doll anatomically correct?

    Ok, that last post shocked me back on topic. Here is a script that will generate a permanent and attractive clock in the upper right corner of your screen. To run it you need to have out2osd installed, and your tivo must be connected to the internet (to dowload a small good-looking font). To install it, FTP it anywhere on your tivo and run it, then reboot. I tweaked the out2osd settings pretty well, but if you want to adjust them further, edit them in your author file. It's not perfect - it runs out2osd continuously, and spawns multiple duplicate processes which can use up to 7% of your CPU.

    OK, I can understand someone wanting to get the time from their TV screen, but the date. Man, you gotta get out more! :eek: :D

    Why, did you leave your TV set on 24/7? Turn the tube off and you'll be fine.

    Well not 24 x7 but if its on for several hours a day every day, it will burn in, the fox logo is in teh same place during the news every morning, noon and night.

    The only way anything will burn in on a TV screen is if an image is on continuously, without interruption, for many, many hours. Once the channel is turned or the tube is turned off, the risk disappears.

    I ran this on my hr10250 3.1.5f and rebooted and dont see any clock, so when does this clock come up? During play back? I havent recorded anything since I just got it working.

    Do you have out2osd? Was your TIVO connected to the Internet so it could download a small font?

    Try this updated version with new font download location. NOTE: This is untested, but should work.

    I ftp'd this to my tivo and installed out2osd, extracted out2osd and ran the clock program, rebooted, and I cannot get it to display the time. Does anyone have any ideas where I may be going wrong?? Caller id works on there if that makes any diffrence. HDVR2 with ptv upgrade and tweak program.

    Thanks
