    This is the error I get when I try to log in.

    Unit disconnected!
    Your Tivo unit appears to be disconnected right now. Try again later.

    TWP works fine. And my tivo IP is forwarded on port 80. Thanks.

    Edit:

    I tried reinstalling, and when I started the server, I got this error.

    [1] 5317

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks...

    mmmmm couldn't access the Tivo from work today. After checking when I got home the gotomydvr process wasn't running, so I started it from bash and it's working fine now.

    I believe it was working for about a week continously until the process died sometime in the last 24 hours.

    I installed this last night on my 4 SD-DVR40s. Two work and two don't.

    The two that work were zippered (recently) and are running Tivo 6.2.

    The two that don't are older units, running the PTVUpgrade-hacked disk, Tivo 3.1.1e. They do run at first when started, but after a short while show disconnected. Running ps -aux reveals that the client is not running. When restarted it runs for a short while and then quits. It seems to run until I quit telnet.

    All are connected thru DSL with USB network adapter. The working units use static IPs and the non-working use dynamic IPs.

    Hmmm. Well, we haven't tested the client on 3.1.1e - that could be the problem there. Might want to reboot the 3.1.1e units to see if that helps.

    Good info. Its really odd that the process would just up and die like that; especially so rarely. I'm starting to suspect an OS issue and I'm wondering if it would make sense to have a separate wrapper/watcher than governs the viability of the process. Seems like that would make more sense in a rare situation like this than looking at the actual code...

    Actually, no, it wasn't. Ignore my previous post. As I thought about it I thoght it weird that the process just "died" as well. I just checked my author file and the startup script was missing. So all that had happened was my Tivo had rebooted.

    Just wanted to set that straight.

    When I run the command to get the installer (http_get -T 0 -C 0 -D /var/tmp -U http://68.178.174.173:80/b_install.sh) I get the error "Bad HTTP response: HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request" . I can ping the IP listed from the tivo. What's the problem here?


    Update: I tried to download the install file to my pc and I FTPd it over (yes in binary) and tried to run it. However it doesn't seem to be installing anything. Judging from the commands running it should create a gotomypc directory in the root and it's not.

    Ok, got it to run, but I still get the same error when it tries to update itself.. 'bad http response: HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request" I noticed if I remove the port from the IP I get a different error "error reading http header, reason = Connection reset by peer"

    I must be missing something. When I click on "Select Tivo" - IE asks for a username and password. I put in my email and password form the site but it does not work. What have I screwed up? Same thing on 2 boxes.

    What version of TiVoWeb did you install? If it's 1.2.2 or later of TWP, enter the same info you do when you're doing it locally.

    It is 1.2.2 and 1.2.3, but I do not use a user/pass locally (that I am aware of). Is there a default?

    That was it. The default user for tivowebplus 1.2.3 is "oztivo".

    Thsi is great to be able to remotely schedule recordings. I'm using it with both my SD DirecTiVos and have scheduled several programs remotely to record. I just wish I could enable all this on my HDTiVos.

    Why can't you? Doesn't TiVoWeb work on HDTiVo's?

    TiVoWeb/TiVoWebPlus works fine on the HR10-250; not sure what aaron was talking about there...
