Followed the very well-written instructions, and everything worked perfectly up to the point of telnetting into the dtivo to run the enhancement script. Then I had a "d'oh!" moment when I realised that a wireless connection would not work. Maybe you want to add a note to "Before You Begin".

I have been happily running 4.0.1b up to now, always with a wireless usb connection. I don't have a usb-ethernet adaptor. So I guess I'll have to try to make up a cable and try a serial connection for the first time. A bit of a PITA.

Anyway, I want to add my vote of appreciation to Gunnyman and rbautch. I also firmly believe that DTV and TiVo both benefit from the availability of these enhancements.

Gunnyman, we are both in Greenville. Please PM me and I'll buy you lunch.

Any talk of playing files from a Tivo on anything/anyway other than on a Tivo is considered extraction.

Okay, I done finished "Zippering" the 1st Zippered Tivo, and I just want to say ... Awesome guys...

Where do I send paypal donation? Comeon, you need to accept more then just a Group Hug!! Maybe a donation to your favorite Charity or something.

I must admit, using the Unguide and rbautch's script took me a Heck of alot longer then the Zipper method did. A big thanks to BTUx9 as well for assistance.

I love this place, it is Noob friendly

Anychance someone can help me get cron to start automatically. For some reason....mine is not. I did a PS and it wasnt running, so I started it up via the Web interface. I would like it automated but I'm linux stupid. IF chron isnt running, then I suppose the reboots wouldnt work either. Wonder if those hacks made it in. Should I rerun the tweak.sh?

Since Sanderton was kind enough to allow me to use EndPad(Plus) in the next version of the Enhancement script, anyone who wants to show their appreciation can make a donation to the very worthwhile charity referenced here. ...unless you live in SC, then you can buy some BBQ for Gunnyman.

Re-running the script won't help, unless you run the uninstall script first. Uninstall/reinstall takes about 5 minutes, and it's a very simple thing to try. Did you reboot after you ran the Enhancement script? Did you check the logs I mentioned before? (to check a log, open it with vi). You can also check the author file to see if the startup command for crond was appended as it should have been. You can also start crond manually with Hackman, or by navigating to the buysbox directory and typing "crond". There are more cron troubleshooting tips in the enhancement thread and elsewhere on TCF.

Zipper v2 may add wireless support, but beyond that, who knows...By the way, I'm tweaking the Enhancement script already to accommodate the HR10-250.

Anyone interested in testing a new Zipper feature, please PM me. You must have an image on your tools disk.

Village idiot has questions

Background:
I have a hacked dtivo hughes series 2 with 2 drives
Followed the 4.x Rid guide, learned more about linux then i ever cared to
worked great, has been for over a long time til I dared to go back to the forums and realized I could now do 6.2!
Although this time the guide (upgrading by slices) ruined everything.
Now I have 6.2 but lost networking (wireless), telnet and ftp, the best things.
I can get a bash by serial but cant seem to fix anything, whenever I try to run anything from Bash I get ugly errors ad reboots, so obviously something didnt go right. Which brings me here. The zipper sounds very simple.
Questions:
1. Can I just pull my hacked drive and follow your steps on it or format it and start blank? ( i still have the original in storage)
2. Will I still be able to have the 2nd larger drive installed with it
3. Now the real ignorance is showing, what about things like killhdinitrd and installSw.itcl, does zipper take care of all that?
4. Noticed in posts that wireless work with zipper, is there a way to set it up afterward maybe from serial?

Thank you,
its guys like me that annoy the hell out of you, but its guys like you that piss off my wife by leading me down paths I shouldnt go.

1) yes you can but be aware the best way to procede, is to use instantcake with both drives connected to your PC before you run the Zipper script you will of course lose shows.
2) see item 1
3) Zipper does do a killhdinitrd kernel for you.
4) I need Rbautch to clarify, but I don't think you can get wireless configured unless you connect first with a wired adapter.

Hi all.....yes its me again. I got stupid last night and deleted the wrong file while I was FTP'd into my Tivo. Well.. long story short... My tivo wouldnt finish powering up and a reboot.

I just put a fresh 6.2 image on it with instant cake.

Question: Do I need to hook it up for a few days to talk to DTV/Tivo (update guide + have and have at least 1 sucessfull connection) before I run Zipper and enhancements again or can I go ahead and put on Zipper + enhancements.

Thanks!

At least I'm getting some practice at hacking Tivo

Yes, check the script in my signature. You can set up wireless easily, but you need either with a wired adapter or a serial cable to run the script. I may eliminate this requirement in the future version of the Zipper.

Thumbs up Zipper CD tip

To make things a bit easier down the road (ie next time you use this fantastic tool 6 months from now), include the PDF instructions on the CD that way you will always have them available when you use it.

Might be a good idea to include the PDF in the zip download.

rbautch, Im game. I am going to zipper another drive this weekend if you need a guinea pig....

NOTE the only thing with wireless is that you have to pick a predefined WEP key and its only 64-bit....of course if you are running WEP someone could crack your 128-bit encryption just as easy...encryption and wireless protection only keep some out...if ANYONE wants in bad enough...they will find a way in..

For real? Wicked rbautch...I can not wait. I assume that this may enable networking, fackcall etc for Hr10-250 as well as drive support (larger)

Actually the Enhancement script only works on a Tivo that's already been hacked to allow networking. It's packaged with the Zipper to run on the Tivo after the Zipper does it's thing on the PC to allow networking. HD support for the Zipper is not yet on the table.
