    Little Elm,...
    My update button does not seem to work. Each time I direct it to the new file and then tell it to upload it gives me an explorer error of not being able to connect to site. I just ran the hacks with the latest Zipper files 3 days ago and it gave me the message of no new updates. Can I just use Filezilla to move the file to the TWP folder on my Tivo in binary form and accomplish the same thing as the upload feature?

    Thanks,

    Utnorris

    Not positive, but this sounds like an issue of running TWP 1.3x on a readonly FileSystem
    you may want to go to SysAdmin, where you can remount r/w, and try again

    Utnorris,
    I would go to the site and right click the link and save the file to your desktop. Make sure that you make the filesystem Read/write and not read/only and you should be good to go.

    Hope this helps,

    Do you mean sysadmin in the TWP interface or the actual file? The new file is r/w already, so I know that isn't the issue, but I saw in the TWP sysadmin about mount. Is this where you are talking about do mount?

    Thanks everyone for the help,

    Apparently you meant sysadmin in the TWP interface, because that worked like a champ. Hmmm, sounds like a good entry for the troubleshooting pages. Thank you and everyone else for the help,

    Ok, here's a silly question:

    I'm running TWP 1.3.1 installed via DVR Upgrade's PTVNet disk. I would be very interested in tryint TWP 2.0 but I'm pretty darn new at this TiVo Hacking thing. I've seen several mentions of the "Update" module in TWP1.3.x but I'll be darned if I can find it on mine. Are there variants of 1.3.1 that don't have this module or am I blind?

    Its under the "more" tab. Make sure your TWP file is read/write, see my earlier post. Once you have verified that the file is read/write you shouldn't have any problem doing the update.

    just a clarification... it isn't the file that needs to be read/write, it's the filesystem where it's installed (if it isn't under /var, there's a fair chance it's readonly)

    Actually, I've got the same problem. For whatever reason, the update.itcl has been renamed to update.itcl.bak in the PTVNet installation of TWP 1.3.1

    It isn't listed on the "more" tab, either.

    So, I have the same question: What steps should I take in removing the TWP 1.3.1 (located in the /ptvupgrade/TivoWebPlus/ directory) and install the TWP 2.0?

    Will simply deleting the entire directory tree from the previous install and installing the TWP 2.0 off of the root do the trick? For some reason, I think there's more to it.

    I'd remove the existing, and untar 2.0 into the same place, so it auto-starts on boot.

    What I ended up doing was to completely remove the TivoWebPlus folder under the /ptvupgrade directory. I then ran the "Enhancement Script", which installs TWP 1.3.0 off of the root directory (their installation of TWP includes the Update script).

    I then ran the Update script from the "more" tab and it worked without problems.

    As a side note... I noticed a few modules that were removed from TWP2.0 (the "merge" one, as an example). Is there a list of TWP2.0 compatible modules somewhere?

    no, there isn't really a list, because it is a moving target.
    HOWEVER, if you or anybody else is interested in such a thing, go to the wiki in my sig and have at it!

    (the simple fact of it is that the more interest there is in something, the more likely I am to get the motivation to do something about it... no guarantees, just an observation)

    I thought "merge" worked if enable in tivoweb.cfg. Specifically


    ShowMergeButton = 1

    Does this in fact work?

    OK I'm still new to all this Tivo hacking
    But I have the lastest tivoweb on my standalone UK tivo.

    I hear you can log into tivoweb from, say work and schedule recording etc

    Anyone know how?

    I did a quick scan for the info but as I AM at work can't have a goo droot around LOL

    Yeah, if you have an account here you can access your tivo over the WWW. There may be other ways too but that's how I do it.

    I am unable to access either Channel Grid or HiGuide on my HR10-250. Here is the first part of the error message:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_channelgrid '' 'set "CHANNEL_FILTER" "";'
    can't open object (TV_DB_NOT_FOUND)

    The ToDo list works fine, but I don't get a list of channels with Favs or Filter, and All produces the error. Channel Grid and HiGuide work fine on my Series 2. I have run three releases of RC2 and am currently at 070329.

    You need to post more of the error message.
    Have you checked the log file to see if there are any errors while starting up TWP?
    If you check channel prefs, how many channels are marked as received?

    Little Elm,...
    Quick question, my understanding is that for TWP2.0 to work properly with SP's and recording you need to first record something on that channel via the tivo gui. So if this is correct, if I need to re-Zipper my drives which will reinstall TWP2.0, do I need to start the process of recording on a channel first and then TWP2.0 will work properly or will it still use the information from previous recordings that were set up? In other words, does reinstalling 2.0 reset the whole process of setting up SP's and recordings?

    Thank you,

    Utnorris

    ok... something to try:

    edit libs/index.itcl
    change line 240 from
    Code:
    set station [string range $station 0 [expr [string length $station]-4]]
    to
    Code:
    set station [lindex [split $station /] 0]
    then do a quit & restart, and check if the error happens in the log again
