    I tried changing my password from the default in the preferences page but after clicking the Save Settings buttons I tried going back to the preferences page and it wouldn't accept my new password. I used the default and it went right through. I changed it in the cfg files. Can anyone else confirm having this issue?

    I hope that's an isolated glitch...it has worked every time for me -- and that's probably in the hundreds!

    The password change works great just be careful when changes made within the file I havent learned my lesson yet with Febuary 2007 (login) i then started seeing the ouput for advance login in the boot time input box instead of changing the itcl scripts.. I'm very new on how scripts are read but, i'm thinkin i should waiting for 6.2a to stream in.. It's funny how I started in car repair to learning scripts it's pretty exciting and much respect

    I've installed the files for vserver in /ptvupgrade/bin/vserver in TWP 1.3.1, but Hackman 4.0.0 won't start it.

    Everything else works, including tserver.

    I'm a novice and don't know a thing about programming, so please be kind! :)

    If you're really running hackman 4.0.0, you should get the latest version that is compatible with TWP 1.3.1 -- Version 4.2.8 (see sig).

    The latest version, 5.0.0 (at the moment), is not supported by TWP versions earlier than 1.4.

    And also, please be sure to read the ReadMe!

    Running 'tivoweb console' from the bash, I get this:

    NONE missing close-brace
    while compiling
    "proc action_hackman {chan path env} { ..."
    (file "/var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/modules/hackman.itcl" line 1219)
    invoked from within
    "source $module "


    Ah, missing braces.....

    I'm sure it's probably something else or someone else would have mentioned this. Any ideas?

    My Tivo is a UK Thomson on 2.5.5 and TivoWeb 1.9.4 with Hackman 5.0.0. I've recently installed my third A disk, having had the first two die from exhaustion. I've never had Hackman working - I've only just installed my new Cachecard. I'm also a Microsoft man :)o I know) so my Linux knowledge is limited to work I've done on Tivos and Buffalo Linkstations.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry, having not read anything that states Hackman 5 is ONLY compatible with TWP, I assumed it also worked with TivoWeb. Allow me to cower into a corner and attempt 4.2.8 instead...

    I've run into a few problems with TWP on a UK S1, hence the need for TivoWeb. At least now you know what happens when you try to run 5.0.0 on TivoWeb.

    Unless TWP provides stability or functionality you want that tivoweb doesn't provide, I'd have to agree with you... stick with tivoweb (if it ain't broke, don't fix it)

    Thank you :). Nice to have some moral support for my shamelessly outdated equipment.

    I'd rather have my Tivo than any of the more 'modern' alternatives available in the UK, 'cos it aint broke and I'm not fixing it. In fact, it beats the British competition hands down.

    Oh, and for the benefit of the thread 4.2.8 now works just fine, as expected.

    Thanks, I've now done that. And believe it or not, I read the ReadMe all the way thru for the 2nd time.

    My problem still persists....vserver won't start. Any other suggestions? Thanks! :)

    Never mind; Tivo dropped off the network and I've restarted 3 times now and I can't see it on the wireless network. I do know how to find the IP's. I didn't do anything except go eat breakfast and back to TWP.

    I guess I'm screwed out of $200.00 and a lot of time. Well, I did triple my disk space.

    Keep up the good work, guys. Maybe some day I'll be back.

    I have hacked DirecTV tivo series 2 (samsung 4040r) zippered and running tivowebplus 1.3.0. I did everything that readme file was telling for Hackman v4.2.8 installation (including change "set compliance 1"). I was using Textpad to change this line and ftp'd it to the /modules directory.

    My TivoWebplus is installed into the root (not into the /var). I tried to mount it as read-write and then restarting the tivowebplus. No matter what I do, I'm getting this error when pressing HACKMAN tab in the tivowebplus:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_hackman '/' ''
    couldn't read file "/tivowebplus/modules/hackman.cfg": no such file or directory
    while executing
    "source $source_dir/modules/hackman.cfg"
    (procedure "::action_hackman" line 12)
    invoked from within
    "::action_$action $chan $part $env"
    ("eval" body line 1)
    invoked from within
    "eval {::action_$action $chan $part $env}"
    --cut here--


    What I'm doing wrong? The HACKMAN tab appears in the tivowebplus, but is giving me that error :confused:

    The key to this is where you "I was using Textpad to change this line and ftp'd it to the /modules directory" and then it says "no such file or directory". I would bet that if you use a text editor like joe or vi to view the hackman.cfg file on the tivo, not ftp'd to your pc, that it will have some funny characters at the end of each line (I think ^m, but don't remember for sure). If that is the case then the file got converted to a dos style txt document and not a 'nix style text, just run dos2unix on the file and it should work.

    I'm running the latest TWP 2.0.0 (070228) and have installed Hackman v5.0.0.

    TWP starts, but when Hackman is invoked, an error 'Server Terminated' occurs. I looked at the tivoweb.log and think that is has to do with the 'CreateHackman.cfg' is looking for /TivoWebPlus/config where the /config does not exist. the /config folder does not exist in the TWP 2.0.0.

    Here is the snip it from the log file. Thoughts?

    -Saving

    hackman.cfg to /TivoWebPlus/config/hackman.cfg
    POSIX ENOENT {no such file or directory} couldn't open

    "/TivoWebPlus/config/hackman.cfg": no such file or directory

    OK. It looks like I discovered where the problem might be. It was already discussed on page 37 of this thread. Here is the problem with Hackman v4.28 and Zippered tivo:

    The solution to this problem is to edit hackman.itcl file and comment out the version check as described on page 37 of this thread. Works like a charm.

    Well maybe I'm not screwed at all. I can view mypictures from my desktop and my laptop, so I'm connected. The only IP address I can see is my wireless bridge. Is there anything I can do to get to TWP?

    I'm probably in the wrong forum now with this new problem. If I am, can you point me in the right direction?

    Thanks :confused: :confused:
