Gunnyman I have some questions for you. Can I email you, or IM. Talk of this not allowed on this chat. Zipper has worked perfect and will use on all of my Tivo's. Thanks for the great software.

Hey everyone,
Im going to be a new DirecTV sub once I get my DVR80's tomorrow. I have a new drive that I have already done most of the script and it is awesome!

I guess my question is... does anyone foresee a problem with me doing these updates and swapping the drives out before I activate my D* account? I was hoping to do all this so that I would not have to go through the inital setup with the phone line. (Vonage user here..) If I have to anyway, I guess its not a problem as there are ways around that. Just wondering.

Thanks!
-Gus

There are others that know much more about this than me, but, here is my 2 cents.
That should be fine. But, depending on where you got your image, it may show up as a hardware error. You have to do a clear and delete which takes over an hour. But I just recently was informed there is a file called 51killer.tcl in the /busybox directory that fixes that problem. Just boot up and run it from a the bash prompt.

Can't remember if this topic is allowed or not but will the zipper decrypt old shows? If not, how? Thanks.

I followed the directions to a "T" and got my image via InstantCake. But I will be prepared to run 51killer if need be.

But let me ask this... which is the "preferred" method... 51killer or a clear and delete?

Thanks in advance.

I have read through most of this thread, looks great, i am looking at upgrading my DSR708 (i have already done Hinsdale's guide and upgraded myself to a 200gb drive about 3 months ago)

Went perfectly, and i am a computer tech/system designer so i am quite familiar with pcs, just not necessarily linux programming hehehe

1)Anyhow, i am curious, can i just apply the zipper to this already upgraded drive? or do i need to start from scratch...

Also, if i upgrade the drive with the zipper, will the recorded shows, settings, etc. be saved?

2)Also, this will not mess up if directv adds new channels or removes channels (they have added a few and rearranged a few, and i dont want the channel logos to be all screwed up or something) right?

3)My final question is, via serial link (which i currently use PPP to do my calls with), i know i can setup the zipper, but can i also look at photos from other machines, etc., or do i need to get myself a adapter like the MA111?

If you could get back to me that would be great as i would like to start upgrading ASAP

Thanks all!

Thanks Gunnyman.

One more question... would I still have to do the initial setup with the phone line?

I ask since I know there are known issues with Tivo and Vonage. That is, of course, if there is a way to do it over the network.

Thanks again!!

1) Yes re-imaging the drive is completely optional.
2) No effect on channels
3) you will need to NETWORK the tivo to get the added features.

For all who get the Error #51, if you follow the directions exactly, the tweak.sh script will remove the error without manually running 51killer. You just have to ingnore the error when it first pops up. If it still persists, then go ahead and run 51killer, but I would suggest not doing a clear and delete everything.

I recently applied the zipper to my HDVR2 which has a 160GB HD. When I replaced the original factory drive with this drive I didn't have the proper tool(s) to allow me to take advantage of the full 160GB so it is now only using 120GB.

What is the best way to re-image the drive so I can get the full 160GB? I do realize I will lose the shows already recorded but I'm looking for the easiest way to do it, something with the ease of use as the zipper.

P.S. I still have my original factory drive (with the zipper installed on it).

bugs you will need to get yor own image and apply it with the zipper.
Your shows will be gone.
Sadly, there's no way to recover the disk space without starting from scratch.

Just wanted to post another success! I am totally new to Tivo Hacking. I found Zipper 2 days ago. I took the 40 GB out of my HDVR2 copied it to an 80GB using the Hinsdale guide. I then Zippered the new drive and all is working awesome.

I should be getting my FA120 from New Egg today, then I can start playing!

Thanks for making this process soooo easy!

Thanks again...
I don't think it was the CD-RW disk. I had no end of problems trying to use a finder-burnt cd but was able to fix it by reburning using Toast (IS9660 w/Joliet filenames) It looks like the OS X finder is doing something funky with the structure of the discs or filenames it's burning. The Toast-burnt cd worked fine first try.

The zipper script and associated hacks are pretty slick -- Thanks to all who contributed to them!

First I wanted to say that I Zippered my 2 units and everything worked beautifully
Thanks for making such a great program!

I do have one question. I want my brother to also Zipper his units but he needs to use a wireless network for SD-DVR40 tivos. Is there any wireless USB 2 adapters that are recommended? Preferably an 80211.G.

I did look up the Belkin 5060 but I believe it is USB 1 and also it seems to be discontinued.

Thanks,
Doug...

What transfer rate do you realize with the wireless G bridge? I get just under 2Mb/s transfer between two WUSB11 adapters which is normally not quite fast enough to watch immediately upon initiating transfer.

On Tivo's support page there is a list of wireless adapters to use. Just avoid the wireless G ones that say for 7.2 only.
Zipper won't delete shows if you hack an in place 6.2 image.

OK I JUST SAID

everyone tells me to go to tivos site

I am having trouble though finding these adapters as they are ALL version specific (at least the ones i can actually find)

SO, most stores dont say the version, so can someone give me a link or something to a good one......

Seriously, i have spent tons of time looking, and the only ones that i can find with versions are from stores that charge way too much....

also, there are two columns, which one do i go by to see if its supported or not?

The Linksys WUSB11 is a popular 802.11b adapter. The best option is to buy a version 2.6 or 2.8 off of ebay for about $20 plus shipping.

ok, i was curious if you had store or something

I know how to buy technology, i just have had a hard time finding OLD versions for B

B is common place, i can get B stuff anywhere, just not the old versions of b hardware.....


its stupid that i have to pay 50$ for an older version of something i can get for 20$...(thats the case with the WUSB11)

I have looked on ebay and other places and whenever its v2.8 its really expensive...very stupid
