    I own a Directv Rec /w Tivo for the last year and have been very happy. (Except that my phone service is Vonage). I recently upgraded my hard drive using instacake (awesome). I would love to upgrade my Tivo using Galleon which looks awesome but from reading into it you need software version 7.2. I have 3.1.1.e on mine now. What is the main differance between 3.1 vs 6.2 7.2. I am just confused on what each software version will do when it comes to upgrading my tivo. Will PTV Upgrade ever come out with an upgrade to 7.2. Any thoughts would be appreciated..........

    3.1.1e slower, no folders, can record music channels via wishlists
    6.2 faster, folders & can be hacked for most of what 7.2 does..."zipper" (uh, hem)
    7.2 current for SA Tivos, has MRV & Tivoweb (can do recording over the internet).

    If you have a standard-def Series 2 DTiVo, ignore 4.0. Let it upgrade itself to 6.2 and then hack if you want.

    HD-DTiVos are stuck at 3.1.5.

    4.0 was a kludge to get working. 6.2 was DESIGNED for DTivos and is just as easy to hack.

    Tried that but have had no luck with my laptap using a serial to usb adapter!

    I think Instacake is the best way!

    Wish me luck!

    I have 6.2 dtv and had the music & pictures working with desktop 2.1 version running. I updated to desktop 2.2 and can not get the music and pictures working. Tivo says the pc server for the music and pictures is not running- I have check and updated the ip address and still nothing. Any suggestions??? Tks

    Take a trip to the tivo underground and post there, you will likely get responses...
