    I've been reading various posts on how to gain telnet/ftp access to my box but they all lead to one thing, I HAVE to open my box (voiding its warranty) and/or modify the original HD (potencially dangerous).

    There surely must be a way to get FTP/Telnet working via softwear threw a local area network as I have it setup now...

    Is this possible and if so can someone point me in the right direction w/o having to make these major modifications?

    Thanks again!

    Iti s in theory possible, but would require TiVo sending down stuff to enable it.

    Thanks for your reply has anyone tried this or do you mean the main Tivo server has to update the OS? If that what you meant I guess I'm doomed to open the box...

    Is there a straight forward newbie proof guide anywhere I've read alot of different ones on this site and a few others but all get into too many specifics and I lost them about 1/2 way in. I may try and get a "bash prompt" later today I think thats my first step.
