    Hi all, I recently moved and just dug out my old Directv dvr40 to hook back up.

    I had installed Instacake on the drive a year ago to enable the usb ports.

    Here is whats on my system information:

    Backdoors: Enabled

    Software: 6.2-01-2-321

    Service # 321

    What wired or wireless adapter can i use, I just want to listen to my music and look at photos i have on my pc, nothing else...

    I know the usb ports are working because i pluged in a belkin wireles adapter and the lights came on...

    I misplaced the instacake software so i have nothing at this time..

    Any help would be reatly appreciated..

    From DVRupgrade website written by Lou Jacobs (tivoupgrade in this forum)
    Standard Definition (SD) DirecTV Units
    All versions of PTVnet for SD DirecTiVo units running 6.2 or 6.2a will work fine with the following adapters:

    * Netgear FA120
    * Hawking UF200
    * Linksys USB200M (v1 and v2)
    * Trendnet TU2-ET100 (available directly from DVRupgrade)
    I do not believe it was designed to work with wireless
