Hack Manager is a plug-in module for TivoWeb and TivoWebPlus that allows the user to start and stop TiVo hacks, such as telnet, tivoftp, TiVo Control Station, TyStudio, tytools, cron, YAC, autospace, EndPadPlus, elseed, elseedyac, ccxstream, etc. Hackman also has the ability to edit startup scripts, including rc.sysinit, rc.sysinit.author and config files for other programs. NOTE: Please read the warnings about these features! Hackman includes support for xPlusz commands and backdoor codes as well as incorporating JJBliss's bufferhack, KeepUpTo and TCTimout utilities, and many other features. Hackman features Starts and stops hacks in real time Creates rc.sysinit.author files to simplify setting hacks to start when TiVo boots. One click and a hack is either added or removed from the startup sequence. Can manage other start-up files such as hacks_callfromrcsysinit Provides information about multiple start-ups and command conflicts Executes backdoor commands such as setting 30-second skip Sends backdoor commands to the TiVo at boottime Provides a TivoWeb interface to execute xPlusz commands Can switch between TivoWeb 1.9.4 and TivoWebPlus on the fly Provides means to set root directory read-only or read-write Sets startup parameters for EndPad, EndPadPlus, YAC and elseed Support provided for TiVoVBI (closed-caption display) Provides protection against reboot cycling caused by corrupted guide data Remote reboot capabilities Remotely executes bash command lines Auto-configures itself -- no .cfg file to mess with! A preference screen provides flexibility -- for example, password protection is optional, as is display of backdoor commands, bufferhacks, and the display of boot load items. Set internal TiVo time and date -- helpful for an unsubbed Series 1 being used as a VCR Copy active partitions to inactive partitions and flip, if needed Customize the banner to say "Living Room" or "Bedroom" instead of "TivoWebPlus" Adjust the time zone setting to allow for new DST start and end dates On-line help In development since 2004 Successfully tested on all TiVo models. CAUTION: Adding or removing hacks from the startup sequence will overwrite any previous rc.sysinit.author file. A backup copy will be made, but please look at the README and plan accordingly. Installation NEW! Simplified installation uses the TivoWebPlus Update module. Check the readme file in the hackman.tgz file or online (link in sig). Please do read the README!

Acknowledgements My appreciation goes to sanderton, cojonesdetoro, JohnSorTivo, JJBliss, EvilJack, n4zmz, BTUx9, Stan Simmons and many others who have been particularly helpful in inspiring the hackman idea and providing assistance when I spun out on the learning curve. And thanks to everyone else who has contributed to TiVo programming and together have led the way. Here's a screen shot. If you like the theme I'm using, look here. I added the TiVo man and some local artwork. Downloading NOTE: Due to upload size limitations and a desire to consolidate postings, the latest version will be found here.
