    Hey there. I don't spend too much time at this forum for no other reason than I like the color scheme at the other one better.. ;P Anyhow, jvanber notified me that people were having some compatibility issues with our TiVoWeb release which led me to this thread.

    We had replaced the version3 variable with a more coder friendly version variable that simply stores the primary version number (ie 3 for 3.x, 4 for 4.x). This was necessary in order to add version specific code for the 4.x users. Anyhow, I have reinstated the version3 variable for reasons of backwards compatibilty. The latest download available includes this change.

    The uktivo bugs reported earlier have nothing to do with our release, as our project is based upon the 1.9.4 final code, which included said variable.

    As far as the removal of the anti-hacking code is concerned, yes, it was removed. I don't steal service, nor do I plan to, but what ticked me off was seeing that stupid ASCII finger flipping me off all the time while I was editing the code. If you're going to try to make some sort of statement with your software, at least try not to be so juvenile about it. Aside from that, I tend to agree with damagi's post.

    If you're looking for the latest version of the project to which I am referring, go to the DD forums and look in the 'DirecTiVo Series 2 Hacking' forum for a post titled 'TiVoWeb with DUAL TUNER support + more!'

    Additionally, the best way to contact me is via PM on the DD forums.

    It changed one of the key global variable names (version3 to version) which broke a lot of stuff - has this been put back now?

    As stated in my previous post, this has been fixed in the latest release which can be downloaded at the DD forums.

    Yeah, I think you're pretty much stuck with the colours :p

    Anyhow, I have reinstated the version3 variable for reasons of backwards compatibilty. The latest download available includes this change.

    Cool. I just didn't see the point having to maintain two different versions. Anyway it's no longer an issue.

    The uktivo bugs reported earlier have nothing to do with our release, as our project is based upon the 1.9.4 final code, which included said variable.

    Yeah, the poster fixed that by downloading a fresh copy of TiVoWeb.

    As far as the removal of the anti-hacking code is concerned, yes, it was removed. I don't steal service, nor do I plan to, but what ticked me off was seeing that stupid ASCII finger flipping me off all the time while I was editing the code. If you're going to try to make some sort of statement with your software, at least try not to be so juvenile about it.

    That ain't my code. Anyway, all that does is generate joke 404s if you request a page that doesn't exist. ;)

    Aside from that, I tend to agree with damagi's post.

    Yup.

    If you're looking for the latest version of the project to which I am referring, go to the DD forums and look in the 'DirecTiVo Series 2 Hacking' forum for a post titled 'TiVoWeb with DUAL TUNER support + more!'

    Thanks, yeah, I downloaded a copy earlier.

    Anyway, I think I've made it clear that:

    1. I don't support service theft.
    2. I was caffeine deprived this morning. ;)

    Subject closed as far as I'm concerned.

    LJ,

    Thanks for your quick response to my earlier inquiry. I'm glad it looks like everything is taken care of.

    LJ, I have only just installed TiVoWeb and am therefore a newbie at this. I can't get the module working. I downloaded it to my PC then renamed it to folders.itcl, then ftp'd it to /var/hack/tivoweb.itcl (which is in my path). I even CHMOD'd it (755). And of course did the restart.

    I have other modules working at least to some degree, so can you help with getting this one going please? (I'm assuming I'm looking in the right place for it's output - run TiVoWeb, click User Interface then Now Showing. The screen looks exactly as it did before the download.

    Thanks

    No it appears as a separate menu item on the same level as User Interface

    Modules go in:

    /var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/modules/

    (on a regular set up). No need to chmod.

    Thanks, but still nothing...

    Maybe somehow I have screwed up the download...I think I saved it as a text file then renamed it, then FTPd it. Is that OK?

    The saving it as a text file bit has probably converted the file to DOS format. You'll need something like Dos2Unix to convert it back.

    Thanks

    You've restarted TiVoWeb, yes?

    If so and it still doesn't work, quit TiVoWeb, then run it from telnet using the console switch, ie:

    /var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb console

    That will show you the loading of each module, with any error mesages.

    Aha! Thanks Stuart. Message near the start says:

    folders
    NONE can't read "::uktivo": no such variable
    while executing
    "if {$::uktivo} {

    and so on.

    So...is there a UK version that I need to get? Or a constant I need to set up???

    Cheers

    Are running "normal" TiVoWeb, or the TiVoWebPlus they are working on on The Other Side?

    Normal TiVoWeb (1.9.4) should define that varaible, as (AFAIK) the very latest release of TiVoWebPlus.

    Good question (I presume!). I followed Steve Jenkins guide to do the install.

    The version at the top is 1.9.4b4, from 199.240.141.102 as Steve specifies. I now see that this probably isn't the latest 1.9.4 release, which I've now downloaded. Can I simply install 1.9.4 over the top or will i need to set things up again?

    I just deleted my post stating the exact problem I had. You need to get the latest rev, Steve's instructions get beta4, I did the same thing and got he uktivo error.
    You can install right over your existing Tivoweb install, thats what I did. You may have to keep track of any files that you have modified that could get overwritten, but you shouldn't have any trouble other than that.

    OK, thanks...I'm in the process of doing that.

    However, when I run the cpio command I get a load of errors that a newer or same age version exists.

    How can I change my command to make it overwrite these? The command I am using is

    cpio -H tar -i < tivoweb-tcl-1.9.4.tar

    Hopefully this will be my last question...for now anyway ;-)

    TivoWebPlus has always included the uktivo variable. The only variable that it went without for a short time was version3.

    Also, thanks for mentioning the other thread. I went over there and addressed the issue. It wasn't a matter of module compatibility, but rather external script compatibility.

    On another note, I also think it's kinda silly that you cant spell out the name of the DDB forums over here..
