    Hi All,
    I have recently been tweaking with the TiVo but along the way I seem to be unable to connect to the net for the updates now.
    I thought it was something that I had done, but I had seen some other posts also reporting this that I thought it may have been a server issue rather than mine.
    If run ./nic_install_tivo turbonet from telent and tell the system to use dialup, the TiVo will make it's daily call without issue ovef the phone line. If I then switch it back to network, I get "Failed. Service unavailable". I have opened up the firewall and there is no problem running TiVoweb2. I have even done a ping from within the telnet session to www.bbc.co.uk which seemed to get replies.
    Any ideas anyone, please?
    I had, along the way, inadvertently deleted everything in my /hack directory. I don;t know if there was anything in there that would have caused this.
    Please help, it's a real pain in the A***, as I'm sure you can imagine.
    Kind regards.

    BTW, it's a series 1 UK tivo, so there is now dial prefix to enter.

    Can anyone help me with this please?

    I have now turned debug on and got the following report after instigating a daily call.

    Ok. I have just spent several hours navigating my way through anything slightly related to tivo internet connectivity.

    I have proven that I can ping the bbc website and that I don't have any network issues. What I cannot do is connect to the net on port 80. According to my router logs, the TiVo is not even looking for it. I can ping other local network devices and I can ping the outside world which proves the hardware is talking.

    Recently I have upgraded to TivowebPlus but there has been no mention if this could cause problems.

    I also notice that since I originally installed the turbonet card in 2002, the drivers have been updated and I'm concerned that there are bugs not yet finished. For example, I'm fairly certian that I do not need to edit the Ident.itcl file as I am with Pipex not NTL, but there is no code in this file as described but it does mention that v3 has now moved to 'HTTP'. I can find a http file on the Tivo, but it is the http that is failing me.

    The nic_install_tivo also leaves traces of DHCP text in between the lines for static which is not REM'd out. I have removed this in keeping with my previous rc.net. In this file the driver that gets loaded has now been renamed to turbonet.

    I'm now at a loss and I believe that they are problems with the native driver installation/upgrade that need to be resolved, but I have also had no help at all in getting over this problem. I have been trying lots of different things and constantly checking the tclient log file which keeps reporting the same error:

    11/10:09:09:18: /tvbin/TClient: About to connect to ***.***.***.***:80
    11/10:09:09:18: /tvbin/TClient: Executing HTTP command: /tvbin/http_post /var/log/svclog http://***.***.***.***:80/tivo-service/mlog.cgi OFF OFF ON
    11/10:09:10:59: /tvbin/TClient: Failed while POSTing downloaded files stats: error reading HTTP header, reason = Success
    error reading HTTP header, reason = Success

    I have also tried different Tivo server IP numbers. I would appreciate some senior assistance now as I just do not know what else to try or where to look to get through this.

    BTW, UK Series 1 Tivo.

    Kind regards.

    We don't need that in the UK, I did try it though just to be sure.
