A long time ago in a life far, far away I was a pretty decent programmer (before I went to the dark side and became a manager....). Now that I've had the pleasure of Zippering two of my DTivos (thanks again Gunny and Russ), I'd like to poke a little further. Specifically, I've come to appreciate the backdoor that enables the short program info (Thumbs up/down/up/7/8). This however gets reset (turned off) with the now scheduled reboot. I'm not specifically asking for details on HOW to do it, but rather a pointer (or appropriate Google search terms would be OK too ) to info to read and educate myself. I've learned a bit from the enhancement script and various config files and now Linux (my background is DOS/Windows, but I've also worked with OS/2, AS/400, and AIX. Anyone guess where I work?) Thanks!
