    I have a really silly question. Please don't ask me to do a search - I have and haven't found the answer.

    I have forgotten how to get into Tivoweb. :eek: I have a Series 1 with a Turbonet card. I installed Tivoweb about 5 years ago but haven't accessed it in at least 4 years, so I have forgotten how.

    I have transferred my lifetime to a dual tuner Series 2 and want to use the Series 1 for manual recordings only. I want to access Tivoweb to change the time and date on my Tivo.

    I know I need the address the network is using for the Tivo. For talking purposes, let's assume it is .

    I have some old documentation that I believe says to type "/var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb console". After a while it will say "Accepting Connections" . But what to I do first to get it to talk to the Tivo? I think I have to use some command with my network address.

    Also, I remember I used SETTIME to change the time before. So do I do that from any particular directory or from the first prompt after connection is established?

    Or do I even need to enter Tivoweb to do a SETTIME?

    Does SETTIME do the date also or is that a separate command?

    And is there a command to display the current time? And date?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I never did much with my S1 tivo, but all the following should work on an S2. Once tivoweb is running you should be able to just type in your ip address in an internet browser and it should pull up tivoweb. You might be able to use ifconfig from bash to find your tivos ip. You can set the time via bash, at least I can on my S2. It's in /tvbin on my tivo, so I'd doubt you would need a precompiled ppc binary. Just type settime at bash, and it should spit out the proper usage context.

    But I think you're asking "how do I connect to bash?", so you can type those commands.

    For that, use telnet. The one that comes with windows is a bit shabby... most people prefer others (putty/Poderosa/whatever)

    Thank you. That is exactly what I needed to know. I downloaded Poderosa and immediately connected to my Tivo.

    Thanks again.
