    Just re-ran tweak to get the lastest enhancements and TWP 2.0.

    Everything went fine, but I noticed one of my machines is missing the 'netconfig' tab.
    Zipper 2.8 s/w 6.2 has it, Zipper 2.9 s/w 6.2a does not.

    Before I had the the two units just linked with a cross over with twp 1.3 I think. I set the DNS to 0.0.0.0 to take car of the NPL issue. But now I have my wires ran to the office and wanted to change the DNS to match my network.

    Any ideas why it's missing on just one?

    Thanks in advance, Mike.

    Sorry, maybe I put too much info into my question.

    I know how to make cross over and network cables. Before I had the wires ran to my office, I just had my two tivos connected via x-over. Everything worked fine, but had to set my DNS to 0.0.0.0 via TWP 1.3 to fix a slow NPL.

    Now I have my network ran from my office and my tivo's connected (with the proper cables). Again I can MRV, telnet, run my newly installed TWP 2.0 no problem.

    BUT, one of my units does not have the 'netconfig' tab in TWP for me to easily change my DNS to match my network, and one does. I was wondering if anyone knew why just one would not have that tab.

    Thank you for everyone's time.
    Mike.

    It looks like I do NOT need to edit tivoweb.cfg in order to steam to a pc is that correct?

    Not to go all "AOL" on this thread.. but me too. -- my sub-100 locals do not show up in TWP either --except channel 14 which is a virtual channel on the 101 sat. They do however (at least some of them) show up in the "Scheduled Suggestions" section on TWP. Channel info (call sign) is clickable.

    Also if I do a seach with the remote and add a SP for the program on my locals, TWP can see that (channel info is clickable as well).

    Hope this helps to further locate the issue.

    Note: AOL joke is not intended to purposly irritate anyone who actually still uses AOL.

    Then you either need to make your own alias or use the commands I listed to get write access.

    It will be immediately apparent that I have no clue what I am doing :eek: , but with that said.

    I have a dsr704 running 6.2a and I am using TivoWebPlus v2.0.0-070410

    I would like to have a module create a link on the main TivoWebPlus page, so I could click it and go straight to Thomson’s webpage or ************ or anywhere else.

    I realize this is somewhat pointless, I am just interested on how it would be done.

    If I create a module with the following:

    $chan "[html_link "http://thomson.tivo.googlepages.com/TivoWebPlus"]
    register_module "link" "Thomson Tivo Link" "Go to Thomson's TiVoWebPlus page"

    It shows up when I restart TivoWebPlus, but it doesn't work, and I'm sure it is not even close to working. If anyone can help that would be awesome :D

    In TWP2 click on the "System" tab, then "SysAdmin", then Remount and select "Read Write", then Select "System" again and then select ""Update" you can then select any one of the several links to the page you mention.

    OK, let me try this again.

    Recently re-ran tweak to get TWP 2.0 on both machines.

    No problems encountered during the process.
    However, I noticed only one of my machines has the 'net config' tab in TWP to change the parameters.

    Any ideas why?

    Thanks for any insight.
    Mike.

    I know how to do that, I guess I need to better explain myself. I wanted a module to add a link to the list of modules on the main page. I kept messing around until I got some thing working. Here it is as ugly and redundant as it probably is:

    proc action_google {chan path env} {
    eval $env

    set ret "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN\">\n"
    puts $chan "<html><head><title>Google</title><meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;url=http://www.google.com\"></head><body>Google</body></html>"
    }
    register_module "google" "Google" "Google Web Search"

    What this does is put a module named Google in the list of modules on the start page. When you click on it you go to (you guessed it) google.com

    Now the reason behind all of this. Well there were a couple of things. One was I just wanted to see if I could do it. But the main reason was because the merge module in TivoWebPlus 2.0 does not include the sort functionality that I was used to in v1.2.1. Also the tivo widget was not working with 2.0 for me, even when trying the modified ui_compat.itcl. With the merge module I was able to edit it so it would sort the recording oldest to newest vs newest to oldest, but I could not easily pick the order it sorted in as I could before. So the solution was to run both v1.2.1 (haven't updated to 1.31, because I am primarily using 2.0 and the features that I use in 1.2.1 work fine).

    I run both the old and new on different ports. I disabled the merge function on the new. But made a module called merge that points to the old merge module. So now I have the best of both worlds. Anything that worked on the old I can still have, plus the features of the new. I now have my cake and it tastes great. Of course the widget works fine to since I am pointing it to the port the old version is running on.

    It would have been easy to just change the port I'm on to point to the other installation but I have family members that use this that have a tough time doing anything that involves technology (believe it or not brilliant otherwise, just technology challenged). So I wanted to make it as seemless as possible. I also edited the merge module on the old installation so after the merge completes if you can choose to merge more recordings, go to now playing or main menu. If you go to anything other then merge more you are redirected back to the new installation.

    net config isn't a module bundled with TWP2... if it's showing up and you are truly running 2.0, then tweak must have done a sloppy update of TWP. (or possibly, it installs a TWP 2 with added modules, as it did with earlier versions) I suggest you ask on the enhancement thread.

    Sorry for the bump, but does anyone else experiencing this locals issue, or have a workaround for it? Is there a different place I should look / ask?

    Thanks!

    Hey, BTU... Did you or John1980 fix the Conflict Resolve module recently or am I going crazy? It seems to be working all of a sudden. Thanks!!!

    I thought John1980 worked on it a while back, but I haven't looked at it for 6 months or more... there WAS a change to manrec about 6 weeks ago... don't know if that could have helped.

    It's 3 weeks since my brain surgery, and I've only now been able to get back to some programming... sorry

    I've been trying to mimic the tivo's heuristic to determine which channels are real and which aren't, for those with issues, but without the raw data, it's not easy, so I decided that brute force would be best.

    For those who have valid channels that AREN'T showing up in TWP 2, I've added a "hidden" option to channel prefs... this will show any channels that TWP believes aren't tunable, and from here, if you set them to "received" the channels should then be accessible in the normal lists.

    If you want to give it a try before the next bundle, just grab the latest channelprefs.itcl file from CVS

    I'm getting the "last session did not complete successfully" error and I can't get TWP to run? Anyone know how to fix this. I did a search and seen people who were having the same problem but nobody listed what the answer to the problem was.

    that's just what happens when TWP fails to start properly... you need to check the logs or run in console mode to see what actual error was thrown

    I uploaded a show via Tivoserver, but when I try to access the program info, I get this:
    Code:
    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_nowshowing '' ''
    bad index "1277462/13": 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--
    This happens when I click on the program name in the Now Playing list... If I click on the description, it will open the info though. Both point to the same link, but for whatever reason, clicking the title won't work. Title is "The.Blue.Planet.Ep1" and the description is blank (shows as "No Episode Title")
