    After scanning through all four pages I didn't see anything telling me if all of these tips also apply to software version 3.1.0b.

    To all my Tivo Bretheren:

    A Call for HELP!

    I have set up my serial connection and followed everything to a t. I am able to establish a connection, but the connection fails while negotiating everytime. I have a new DirecTivo with a win XP pro computer. I have a cable modem with a netgear router.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    I'm trying to setup TiVOWeb via PPP serial on 3.0 Philips HDR31201.

    I can't find instructions to make the PPP always on for the 3.0 software. Everything I can find on the net is for 2.0 or 2.5 or 2.5.1 but nothing for 3.0. Surely someone is doing/has done this..

    I'm desparate..

    You have to download a program from the TIVO website, install it and put some pictures or songs on it. The Tivo will access it and you can watch it on your TV. What you have on now is just some samles. It is neat.

    So I have serveral questions -- is there a way to name my TIVO so that when I bring up my DHCP list from my router that I see a name --- like I would for my PC's

    Also I know my router Linksys -- assigns IP addresses -- so if the power goes down its possible that my TIVO's could be assigned different IP addresses -- is there a way to create static IP's so they don't change --- but quite frankly I would just like to be able to name my TIVO it shows up in the DHCP table.

    This is important since I have 3 Sony T60's all of which are on my home netowrk now -- I changed the bash prompt naming them based on their location in the house which is helpful --

    Nearly a month ago, I lost the primary drive do to file system corruption, (GSOD) so I asked if anyone could assist me in recovery of the F/S enough to save my season's comprehensive episodes that I didn't want to loose. Was told to use Maxblast to fix, Maxblast says the drives (both) are fine. DD Copy indicates unreadable records, a copy of both drives to a pair of new drives renders a machine that doesn't boot. So now it appears that I have 2 projects; 1st- I need to make a driveless HDVR2 and 2 new maxtor 160s a D-Tivo, one with those hacks a tweaks that all here regard as required for total enjoyment and flexibility LBA48, USB networking, to do things like TiVi-Web and the sort, and anything else of value that this forum embraces and I don't even know where to begin to start! The second is trying to prepare the drives that I pulled to save my shows either by direct extraction or fixing enough for play back with my other D-TiVo HDVR2. Can anyone lead me by the hand on this??

    You go back into the setup. "" password "admin"
    and change the "assign IP address automatically" to "manuel" and I am pretty sure you have the option to give it a name.
    If all fails, call Linksys and they'll help you to set it up for manuel IP.
    You can give IP from 192.1681.100 to whatever
    If you do it for one, you have to do it for all.

    I just followed the steps to get my Series 2 online with Telnet access. I am using a Netgear MA111 USB wireless device and a Netgear MR814v2 Wireless Router connected to my cable modem on the Roadrunner network.

    After completing all the steps in the networking guide, I cannot telnet to my box. I get the following error:

    Connecting To not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed

    Is there any way to check to see it the telnet server is running on the box? Any troubleshooting tips at all? I set my PC I am using to telnet to it as the DMZ.

    Any advice appreciated. I will still keep scouring for info.

    PS. The wireless stuff is and was working fine, so its not a wireless problem.

    This is going to be a very stupid question, but do I need to have a subscription to the tivo service in order to use the TurboNet to upgrade my listings? I had an account, but canceled it since I am broke, but I just wanted to know if I need the account or will the TurboNet be able to update without a subscription. Thanks.

    I thought that I had read (some time ago) that the Bash prompt was obtainable on SA series 1 Tivos without any hardware trickery. After looking through the forum today, it looks like I have no choice but to remove my hard drive in order to get the Bash prompt available?!

    I already have the Turbonet board in my unit. I'm interested in getting Telnet & FTP up and running, but was REALLY hoping I could do that without having to open the box again. <sigh>

    The Tivo will do whatever it does over the phonecall over the ethernet (except the PPV call on DirecTV TiVos), whether you are subscribed or not. You will get no guide listings if you don't subscribe (on an S1).

    Very old versions of the TiVo software allowed you to turn on serial bash with a boot parameter. Enabling bash and telnet, and adding the bins isn't that hard,

    I've installed a CacheCard but without memory (need to wait till I can afford the SDRAM). When I wire it via Cat5 directly to my LinkSys router, everything works fine, BASH, FTP, TivoWeb, Directory dialout, etc.

    When I try to connect via a Belkin Wireless Ethernet Bridge (F5D7330) I can't get to the BASH prompt and the TIVO can't call out! I know that the wireless bridge workks fine - I'm soaking in it right now, err I'm using it from this PC (WinXP home) right now! It works with no problem.

    The TIVO (Series One Phillips) has a fixed IP address, router address etc, not using DHCP.

    Any ideas?

    After following numerouis threads and configuring and reconfiguring my laptop. I found the problem. According to a thread, there needs to be 2 lines inserted in the mdhayes null modem inf. I noticed when I cut and pasted the lines, I had two (2) spaces before the "1", I deleted these spaces and set the incoming connected to grab two IP's at the end of my DHCP range, and viola!! it worked like a charm! (I had only 2 days left of program data and I was tired of taking my tivo to work and updating every week or so) I was going to purchase the turbonet card, however, I am going to get a series 2 in a couple of weeks, and I already have the USB adapter so I will be running 2 Tivos. I have had my series 1 since they started making Tivos, but I never thought to use serial PPP, I tried Vonage over the weekend, what a joke! I am happy now.

    Does any of this apply to the HR10-250 High Definition Tivo for Directv?

    I have version 3.1.5e.

    Which model are you getting ? www.tivo.com selling reffurbished 80 hr for 100.- after 100.00 rebate. Make sure you get a 540xxx model. It accepts or better said goes above 137 GB berrier per drive. All 7.1 software accepts the 54MB adapters. The 240xxx models I had to reboot, but maybe I didn't wait long enough, but the 540xxx model read it almost right away.

    What are you planning with the S1 ?

    1. Got to www.tivo.com , get on your account and you can rename your Tivo.
    2. You can assign a specific IP to your TIVO in your TIVO setup You don't say what models do you have. If it is a S2, you can assign specific IPs to them.

    3. If you need to know the specific IP for each Tivo, in your brouser : and you get the router setup up. I think in the "status" window select "Local Network" and on the bottom of the page click on "DHCP Client Table". It will list all your equipment on line. I think it is better to leave the auto IP selection on. Normally they keep the IP even if it is turned off and back on. Occasionally if you turn several equipment off and on again in a different order it will pick anither IP and when the eqipment which had that IP turned back on, it wil tell you there is an IP conflict, but the router will take care of it and there is no action required.
    I hope this helps.

    With 7.1 including the LBA-48-support in the kernel, all 240s (and 140s, 264s - Toshibas - etc) will also supports large disk drives. Keep an eye on the Upgrade Fourm.
