    run /tvbin/installSw.itcl manually to pinpoint the error.
    Also check to see if installSw.itcl was edited properly.
    Since your bootpage was not flipped, you will not lose your
    existing hacks if you reboot, and The Slicer may safely be
    run again. Exiting now...

    How do I correct? Thanks.

    This question belongs in the Underground forum. You will get better answers there.

    Sounding like you might not have an install directory in your main list.

    telnet to your tivo

    type cd
    type ls
    see if there is an directory that says install, if not
    type mkdir install
    then try running script again. should work unless your using vista

    Is this a fairly new image? MFS is missing the /SwSystem/ACTIVE name object. I believe there is a script floating around somewhere to resolve this. Google search this particular error string.
