As I have anticipated in my previous post http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...98#post9739698
I have issues with installing the driver for the cachecard onto my TiVo's drive.
1. the LBA48 CD from the 9th tee doesn't work, it does not boot correctly (yes I have downloaded it and burned it to disk again and again, same problem: "Can't find Knoppix filesystem, dropping to a (very limited) shell")
2. I have tried instead using the MFSlive boot CD which I have used succesfully to upgrade the TiVo in the past using the same hardware setup, and the driver package fron 9th tee. Since I don't have a PC with IDE ports anymore, I have to use a USB/IDE adapter which maps the TiVo disk as a scsi device (/dev/sdc); this works beautifully with mfstools which doesn't care if the TiVo drive is seen as IDE or SCSI. However, the nic_install binary for cachecard is apparently only looking for IDE devices as it cannot find the USB-attached disk.
Now, if the install binary were instead a script I could look through it and see what it does and do it manually; but since it's a compiled binary I cannot do that.
I tried to post a support request on the support site for 9th tee, however that bulletin board does not allow registrations so posting there is impossible.
Can anyone help? Jafa? :)
