    After upgrading to 6.2a via slices, the PS command to list all running processes is no longer working.
    Is there another command I can use?

    You can use pgrep to check for a certain process, but I don't know why you'd still have a pgrep binary if you're missing ps. What exactly does "... is no longer working" mean? Did you make sure to copy over your busybox tools?

    If the problem is that it only lists a few processes, try ps -aux

    umm... have you tried running with no arguments? the aux is really only needed with an older non-busybox tivo binary, iirc... looks like that one was removed in 6.2.

    You can also try ps --help. One possibility is that your ps symlink is linking to another utility other than ps.
