    Try these:
    usbobj2.4.27-20060906.tar.bz2
    usbsrc2.4.27-20060906.tar.bz2

    I actually tested with a usb200m v2 and dhcp this time :)

    Thanks, Jamie!

    The new drivers did the trick!

    I also noticed that when the drivers load the adapter, it now actually displays the device name/description (while monitoring the serial bash dump). Makes it easier to confirm the device has been found. Was this changed also? I thought the older versions only listed the hex id...

    Yes. The previous version treated all the ax88772 devices exactly the same (usb200m v2, dub-e100 b1, asohousb) and printed a generic description string ("ASIX AX88172 USB 2.0 Ethernet"). This version treats them each slightly differently and has a different description string for each.

    Well I was also able to get the USB200m V2 up and running. by using Jamie's latest posted files. I now have a strange issue. The main menu on Tivoweb has lost the User Interface choice on the menu. If you enter the IP/ui the user menu appears. I can not find where the menu derives its global module list. any help?

    The people at PTVupgrade could also just redo there software.

    I have been wondering why they have not bothered to update the software they sell.

    We haven't 'bothered' because there are other things that we work on, besides this particular software product. When we released the last update, it worked just fine with the recommended Netgear FA120, as well as the Hawking UF100 (and early model USB200M adapters).

    At some point, we will update the software (that's a promise), however it is not a priority relative to the many other projects we have going on -- the PTVnet stuff does work with the recommended adapters.

    Meanwhile, this is a good thread and those who wish to use the newest drivers and the more current USB200M also have an alternative; so everyone should be happy.

    Can these files be used on a HR10-250?

    TIA

    So for instantcake and ptvnet installations you should upgrade to 6.2, install the usb backport, connect your USB200M v2, telnet into the hdvr2 and then install superpatch67?

    I assume you don't need the superpatch to install the usb backport...right?

    Thanks,

    Ez

    Hi Guys,
    I have an HR20-250 upgraded with PTVnet and based initially on InstantCake 6.3c
    I have not been able to get the USB200M v2 recognized at all. I would have thought that this would have drivers for it by now. Apart from an initial Hardware Error #51 which resolved after reading and has not appeared since, the install has been flawless. All the default options have been checked. No call home etc set to the default.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'd like to get the most out of my 1 Terabyte of space! It's pretty nice to have 147 hours of HD storage! :)

    Thanks again guys,
    Doug

    I know its a PITA, but read this thread from the beginning. You will need to either use a serial cable or use an older supported network adapter, then go in and modify the files as mentioned earlier to support the newer adapters such as the USB200Mv2. The Instant Cake installation does not support the newer adapters. Why they haven't updated their product is beyond me; the changes are simple enough.

    It is pretty easy once you review this entire thread.

    Support for the Linksys USB200M version 2 was added way back in 2006 when the Tivo Zipper version 1.7 was released according to Zipper supported adapters FYI the Tivo Zipper is up to version 3.0 and you can get it here Tivo Zipper

    But then again this is PTVnet issue not zipper.

    For Nitrous: Botcher is right, if you could just read all of the whole 28 posts before your post you question will be laid out before your eyes. Don't use zipper if you can't read 28 posts I can't imagine what would happen with 10K.

    Thanks for your reply Botcher.

    I appreciate your response.

    I still have a serial cable from back in the days when we were modifying the Series 1 TIVOs (SAT60 etc). Was hoping not to have to get back into that again.
    As to why PTVnet hasn't been updated to cover the USB200M v2, I wonder if it relates to what their product line includes as accessories.
    Again, thanks for taking the time to respond.

    I know I'm close to being on the right track here. I've read this entire thread, but don't see how to keep my existing FA120 network adapter but have usb 2.0
    I'm trying to offload a few 100 Gig's worth of data and would rather not take the entire evening to do it.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    I think I just chose USB 1.0 when installing my PTVNET 6.2 years ago instead of the USB 2.0 option. Isn't there some way to change this without installing a bunch of new files etc?


    Answering my own question here, thanks to Jamie at DD. If anyone else has this issue, the very simple answer is here http://www.dvrplayground.com/forum/thread/11504/&highlight=USB20
