    I forgot to mention I can still use Tivo Desktop to access my pics and music from my computer thru the tivo. So its still connested just refuses access to tivowebplus.

    I can also ping the TiVO's IP.

    with no telnet I am suspecting you ran something in hackman that messed with teh author file.
    without telnet or ftp you need to pull the drive.
    You can copy the rc.sysinit.author file from your tools disk to teh tivo and should be good to go again.

    So I tried 15 times last night to log into tivoweb with no success. I wake up this morning and try it again and it works? After done checking I go to restart than quit. Tivoweb tells me server terminated. Now I cant log in again. I can get a prompt in Telnet but it wont list any files or anything. And my prompt is (none)-TiVO# Not really sure whats going on here?

    your author file got wiped, but cron is set up to reboot tivo and start twp every so often
    if you have bash access, just start tivoftpd and ftp the author file from the tools disc to /etc/rc.d on the tivo.

    should be in /busybox on a zippered tivo.
    just type tivoftpd at a bash prompt

    If you have access to TiVoWebPlus, you can manually edit the rc.sysinit.author file through the "preferences" page of Hackman. Just insert this line:

    /sbin/tnlited 23 /bin/bash -login &

    That will get you telnet access back, and then you can fix the rest.

    I see something close to that????

    # Starting the TiVo Telnet application:
    if test -f /sbin/tnlited
    then
    /sbin/tnlited 23 /bin/bash -login > /dev/console &
    fi

    After I ftp it do I have to make it readable or writeable or should it work without doing that?

    Is this the correct file??

    that's teh one,
    but I just thought of something
    If you can't telnet, you are going to need to mount your tivo filesystem as read write. I THINK Hackman can do that in tivoweb, but it's been a while.

    you pretty much can't go without telnet
    easiest thing to do is pull teh drive and rezipper, recordings won't be affected in any way.
    The other things I've pointed too are pretty simple fixes aswell, just need to read up on a few linux basics.
