    Would I be able to install PTVnet and TivoWebPlus on my already upgraded 500gb DirecTivo-Samsung Sir-S4080R? If so, do I need to install both or will TivoWebplus work ok on it's own?

    Thanks.

    I have a BUNCH of programs already recorded. Will it be a problem if I just put the software on top of that or do I need to start fresh? I have that baby-500gb, at least half full.

    I haven't got it working yet on 6.3e but it did load PTVnet and all my shows are still there. I think I am having other problems. I can ping the TiVo and it does respond. :) Got the BASH prompt working

    I have both installed on my hard drive now. Now can I use usb on the Dtivo to connect to the usb on my computer to communicate with it?

    No, you can't connect the Directivo USB port directly to a computer. You'll need to buy a PTVnet supported USB to ethernet adapter (wired or wireless) and use your networked computer to configure your DirecTivo.
