About 3 years ago I studied every thing regarding upgrading my directivo. Had things book marked, programs installed and on my desktop, etc, etc. I pretty much understood the basics. Now years later I don't have even a clue how to communicate with the box.
I have a Philips DSR700. I upgraded with instantcake and PTVnet. 304 hours, 6.2a
I used to have tytools and remember being able to connect to the unit and see what programs were on it.
I do still have my linksys 2.0 usb Ethernet adapter and the original dvr upgrade disks (somewhere).
I'd like to be able to tell the unit to upgrade to 6.4a or at least see if I have those downloads on the hard disk , but the unit has been told not to upgrade.
I don't care about losing any of the "hacks", I just need to get my local channels back.
I'm in Southern California and I lost about 4 locals. Other than that, the box has worked great all this time.
I was able to ping it, but when I tried to telnet to it it would not connect on port 23.
Any help would be appreciated.
