    5. When doing more than one box with caller ID, you must choose ONE box to be the SERVER. For all the OTHER boxes you must edit /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author and comment out the line that starts ncidd (the server process). You must ALSO edit the /var/hack/etc/ncid/ncid.conf file on each of the client boxes (line 11) to set Host to the IP address of the SERVER box. After making these two changes for each CLIENT box, you must reboot the box. Only the single SERVER box needs a phone line connected for ALL boxes to get on-screen caller-ID.

    My problem was that my ncid.conf file had the wrong ip in it. All is well now!

    Hi All,

    I need some quick clarification on something.

    I just upgraded to TWP 2.0, and the demo site shows version 1.40 with an apparently functional WebRemote. This is a pretty desireable thing for me. I understand 1.40 was clarified and converted to version 2.0 for ease in confusion.

    I understand there is a problem with sendkey and the webremote doesn't work in 2.0, but yet I see it in the demo version 1.40 which is on the twp2.0 install page


    Therefore if version 1.40 is relatively the same as 2.0 and ....that version...has a working webremote, can I go back to that version? Does anyone have a webremote that works on 1.3.1 or higher? If I do go to 1.40 what will I lose over the current 2.0 version.

    Thanks in Advance

    AFAIK, TWP2's webremote works just as well as earlier versions'
    The issue is that only certain versions of tivo s/w support sending the keys.
    For versions <4, it's supported directly in tivosh
    For v4.x, MuscleNerd wrote a sendkey binary
    for versions >4, there's a newly released (within the last week) binary that uses routerplus... there isn't any support for it in any version of TWP, yet (it's one of the things slated to be added to TWP2.1)

    BTUx9,

    Thanks for your rapid and knowledgeable reply. So just requesting your confirmation:

    So If I understand you correctly, and I am running Software Version:


    6.2a-01-2-381 w/ TWP2.0

    then I will need routerplus, and I wont be able to do anything at all until the upgrades to 2.1 are finished? Is it in the current beta version on the website yet?


    Thanks

    Shane Lewis

    yes, you need routerplus, and look for the new sendkey over on DDB.
    no, there isn't any support in v2-1, yet

    So close,...
    How do I rename recordings using TWP? I think it was Omikron over at DDB that said he did it. I can't figure out how???

    Go to Now Playing List - select a title, you may have to select it again until you get the details, then choose "Edit Program" and off you go...

    Ormond...
    I just installed the TWP 2.0.0-070921, and for some reason the menu is going up and down instead of across. How can I change that?

    Sounds like the theme is not loaded in your browser. Clear your browser cache and try again. Or just select another theme.

    Here's the problem I have with 070703 and later. With folders enabled, "Classic" and "Title" sorting return the same result, where the NPL is sorted alphabetically.

    I really miss the way classic sorting used to work with folders in earlier builds, where the most recent recordings (or folders) were at the top. Curiously, with folders disabled, classic sorting works fine. I have way too many recordings to turn folders off on a regular basis though.

    Anyone else seeing this? If so, can anyone recommend a fix?

    you miss what?!?
    unless you're talking about the folders module (which is still there), the earlier versions of TWP didn't have any native folder support. So, if you want the old functioning back, just disable folders.

    The good news is that SteveT's new jacket themes include the ability to sort the list locally (clicking on a header), so you may want to give that a try.

    Super tool! I've used it for years, from back when it was still TivoWeb, then TivoWebPlus, and now 2.0. Thanks for all of your hard work on it.

    I did the zipper thing recently, and then updated to tivowebplus-v2.0.0-070927.tgz. It worked well for a while. But today, when I try to go into Now Playing, I get this:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_nowshowing '' ''
    bad index "43020/13": must be integer or "end"
    while executing
    "lindex {0 0 3} $sort"
    (procedure "MOD::action_nowshowing" line 79)
    invoked from within
    "$cmd $p1 $p2 $p3"
    (procedure "do_action" line 19)
    invoked from within
    "do_action $action $chan $part $env 1"
    --cut here--


    Also, I notice that my genres are messed up. For example, I created a wishlist with a title keyword and Sports as the genre, but when I display it in the wish list screen it shows up as "Anthology" instead of "Sports". Any idea how to fix that one?

    Oh, and you can probably tell by the "zipper" comment, but I'm running 6.2a on a Series 2 DTivo (Hughes SD-DVR40).

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I noticed that re-selecting the "sort by classic" option got rid of the above error. I had done that previously, so I'm not sure what made it lose that setting.

    I'm still having the genre out-of-sync issue.

    I upgraded last night to 2.0 on my Samsung SIR-S4080R dtivo, but the menu's were appearing vertical instead of horizontal and some of the links were broken with error messages, so I just went back to 1.3 for now.

    However, now it says at the bottom of my season pass listing Error: your season pass priority list is corrupted, reorganizing them may help. I try to reorganize them, but it still says it. Is there a way I can delete the season pass list from tivowebplus and get it to load the one from my tivo? Or is there even a reason to be concerned at all since I added a season pass from tivoweb and it still accepted it on my tivo?

    Thanks a lot.

    I have compared both my Tivos files and noticed that mtab resides in /var/hack and that in the one that works there is a symlink from /etc/mtab. I reckon that what is missing from the one that is giving errors but don't know how to fix it. Can anyone help.

    by reorganizing, I believe it means on the tivo UI, changing the priority of one of the SPs (I use the bottom one) so that it rescans them all... I end up having to do this when adding SPs to my dtivo quite often, because the tivo doesn't schedule them unless I do.
