    its the Edit daily status e-mail configuration file? (requires hackman) option. I have installed Hackman. Hackman does not show dailymail. Should it?

    If I choose the "View most recent........." I see a copy of the mail minus icons.

    OK time to bite the bullet and upgrade from 0.38 beta!

    Where do I find the latest version? http://deepinthejungle.servehttp.com/TiVo/DailyMail_Module.htm links back to www.deepinthejungle.com for the download and that doesn't resolve.......

    Think some of your URLs might be faulty T-O!

    (OK found it at http://deepinthejungle.servehttp.com/Tivo/downloads/Dailymail%20Jazz Install v1.0 01May06.zip)

    The referer link on the page was putting a comma in between jungle & servehttp

    Doeas anyone have an idea how I could modify the dailymail_jazz.tcl to make it include the HDD temperature as well as the system temperature?

    I've looked at the code and tried a few things but I just succeed in breaking the report at the point I start interfering.

    The info is avaialble from smartctl via
    Code:
    ./smartctl -A /dev/hda
    and/or
    Code:
    ./smartctl -A /dev/hdb
    Code:
    ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME          FLAG     VALUE WORST THRESH TYPE     WHEN_FAILED RAW 
    194 [b]Temperature_Celsius[/b]     0x0032   253   253   000    Old_age      -       [b]40[/b]
    
    Anyone know how to do it?

    Thanks,

    Mark.

    That's a start, thanks. I've dug out a book on TCL programming but whatever I try I've not got it yet.

    Ive noted that the output of that line is typically 78 characters so by trimming the first 75 I should have my temp variable, but how to get from the output of a line command to a string variable within dailymail_jazz isn't immediately apparent to me.

    I'll keep trying though,

    Thanks,

    Mark.

    I'm a long-time DMJ user with a S2 DTivo. I recently reinstalled TWP and DMJ after both stopped working a few months ago. (probably a power outage that wiped something in /var/hack/.)

    DMJ runs from cron and the bash prompt, but the date header and the data (status/ToDo/NPL etc) are "stuck" at the date and time of the installation.

    I've never seen this before and don't know how to begin to resolve it. Any ideas or suggestions are welcomed.

    Cheers!

    Can you clarify what you mean here? That description doesn't give me (at least) a picture of your problem.

    Sure. :)

    I installed DMJ on Friday, the 22nd. It's running from cron (daily, 8:05AM) and manually without errors.

    However, the email appears to be from Friday the 22nd regardless of when DMJ runs.

    It's as if the data that Dailymail is 'looking at' isn't being refreshed prior to sending the email.

    For example: In today's email at 8:05AM the ToDo list for the next 72 hours showed Friday Saturday and Sunday (8/22-24/2008), and the status message said: "Here is the status of your TiVo as of Friday, August 22 05:34:32PM:"

    This is *not* a time zone issue - every email since I installed and ran DMJ for the first time (at 5:34PM on Friday) has shown 5:34PM on Friday ;)

    I had some downtime in the office today and managed to get things working. I'm eager to see what happens tomorrow with the cron job.

    :)

    If you're still getting problems, put the debug level up to max (in the .cfg file) and see what the log says.

    Here's what happened -

    I installed everything in /enhancements and ran the var-symlink script to get links in /var/hack/. The problem was - /enhancements is read-only and dailymail wasn't able to write the .html file.

    Solution: create a directory in /var/hack/ and have DMJ put the .html there. Works like a charm now.

    Can dailymail be set up to tell you what's about to be deleted (in a full TiVo) as well as the current Expiry information?

    (apologies if already asked - this is a BIIG thread.)

    All the sudden DailyMail is no longer reporting conflicts, meaning the conflicts section says "None" even though there are conflicts. Anyone seen this or have a solution?

    Thanks!

    Best I can tell (don't know much about the TiVo internals nor am I a TCL programmer) "set id [dbobj $program get TmsId]" returns "" for some shows. That causes alt_showing_conf to find an incorrect alternative for the show. I added this line to the beginning of (untested):

    if {$id == "alt_showing_conf"} {return "" }
