    Those options look very colourless and limited compared to my Tivoweb 1.9.4 setup. However the obvious one you are missing is User Interface, which has a nasty habit of disappearing for no particular reason when the Tivo has been running for a few hours.

    The only solution I have found for this problem is to restart Tivoweb or failing that to reboot the Tivo.

    Tried a restart from the Tivoweb menu and the complete Tivo restart but it is much the same :(

    UI doesn't seem to have loaded. Did you download the fixed version from LJ's site (if memory serves)

    Compared to mine you are missing Backup, Channel Grid, Channel Map, Control Padding, Digiguide, Display Text, Folders, GD Checker, Hackman, Highlights, HiGuide, Manage Daily Email, Manual Record, Edit Menus, New Episodes, New Evening Episodes, Now Playing With Sort, Now Playing With Play, Reorder SPs, Schedule, Search ACs, Season Pass, Showcase, Space Used, Startup Editor, Tracker, User Interface, What's On and XTivoWeb on the main menu!

    Most of those are optional extras but I think you should have both a Now Playing and a User Interface menu.

    You might want to take a look at the Easy Download and Install of Hacks thread at www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=454458

    The User Interface menu can be problematic and sometimes disappears after the Tivo has experienced any sort of strenuous use even though I have the upgraded version from www.ljay.org.uk/tivoweb/

    The Tivoweb Wikipedia page may also come in handy in all terms of the additional modules that you don't currently seem to have available.

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tivoweb

    No better alas after a Tivo restart and it takes over a minute to load and causes Tivo to enter playback pause!

    The UI.itcl in the package doesn't work with UK TiVos as the genres are broken. That's why you need to install LJ's version.

    Do a "console" load of TW from Bash to see any error messages.

    I stopped tivoweb.

    Deleted all its folder and the three sub folders and re-installed using the tivocentral install tivoweb which I guess installs the correct UI.itcl

    After a restart of Tivo it made no difference :(

    My tivo startup commands are

    /var/hack/setpri fifo 1 $$
    /var/hack/endpad.tcl -e 5 -auto >> /dev/null &
    (sleep 40; /var/hack/bin/iicsetw 0x8C 0x38 21 0x39 20) &
    /var/hack/sortnp.tcl > /dev/null &
    /var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb &
    /var/hack/tc.tcl >> /dev/null &
    /var/hack/suggs.tcl -threshold 1 -auto >> /dev/null &
    /var/hack/skip2time.tcl >> /dev/null &

    Should any of theses cause the issue.

    The drive is a 1Gb Sata from tivocentral

    It looks like that version of tivoweb is the 'wrong' one - I have a significantly different set of .itcl files to you! I agree with TCM2007, do a manual FTP+install of LJ's version.

    Most of the links to download it take you to http://tivo.lightn.org/

    which now just says "It Works!" :(

    A direct download link to that site http://tivo.lightn.org/tivoweb-tcl-1.9.4.tar.gz also does not work :(

    it's just the uk version of ui.itcl (and maybe genres?) you need.

    what do you see if you start tw manually with the console parameter?

    I would have thought the install from Tivo Central would be suited for the UK model?

    No joy finding just that file either :(

    Startting Tivoweb from telnet produces this...

    I am not sure if that is good or bad :)

    EDIT: errDbNotFound can't open object (errDbNotFound) after UI looks bad?

    EDIT2: Found ui.itcl at SteveConrad's site but it is the same size and replacing the file made no difference :(

    You're on AltEPG?

    Ah, the genres are different, and that's what broke TW last time the UK genres changed.

    Suggest you post about this over on Tivoland.

    Some archaeology required to find how this got fixed last time

    Hi Automan,

    Are you using Firefox? Viewing TiVoweb with Firefox often causes TiVo to pause. I think it is a known issue.

    Chrome :)

    Looking at ukgenre.js it indeed is quit different from the genres in the AltEPG.

    It is a shame Tivoweb does not interrogate Tivo for the current genre list rather than having it hard coded.

    Automan.
