    Okay. Well. It had to happen eventually. I'm now having a major problem with Tivoweb :mad:

    It all started when I tried to upgrade to the new version of mikerr's SortNowPlaying but lets just assume that was just a co-inky-dink ;):p:D

    Anyway... basics.

    From a telnet command-line, how do I:
    1/ check that Tivoweb (or any other process I assume?) is running?
    and
    2/ stop Tivoweb? ("Kill" something-or-other?)

    (Doesn't help that I've now lost local access to the Bridge for some reason :()

    That'll do for starters :)

    ETA: The reason I want to know is that I'm fed up with having to re-boot to re-start TW and I don't know if typing "tivoweb" at the command-prompt more than once will confuse anything :)

    ps -l

    will show you the processes running, if you've installed ps

    Killing TW will almost certainly reboot your TiVo.

    Why not just delete the module which broke it?

    (Estimated Time of Arrival?????)

    strangely enough ps -l doesn't show any of the process's on any of my Tivo's. its one of the reasons I cant find why irblast is running

    echo ps | tivosh

    but the real answer is to run it with the console option:

    % /var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb console

    then it tells you if its already running or not

    Well, I have now lost all access to my Tivo via Telnet, FTP and TivoWeb.

    The last time it worked (the day I started this thread) I had just re-installed TW (using the TWINST package) and deleted the reference to the odd port number; ie so it should use the standard Port 80.

    I have just now pulled the drive and re-installed the Turbonet drivers but that didn't help.

    What do I do now? (Other than get depressed ;))

    Reboot your router? I had to do this today to get a new port setting working.

    There isn't one. Got a router ;)

    Speaking of which....

    Will try anything once :p

    Two mins later:
    Hmmm. Very strange. That worked :confused: Well, I have telnet access at least! Still no TW though. tried it with the '-console' switch but nothing else was displayed :(

    At least I'm getting somewhere; even though I don't know exactly where that is :p

    Code:
    TiVo: {/var/tmp} % ps l
     FLAGS   UID   PID  PPID PRI  NI   SIZE   RSS WCHAN       STA TTY TIME COMMAND
       100     0   156   131  10   0  16060  2632  0          S   p0  0:00 /bin/bash
         0     0   162   156  20   0      0     0  0          RW  p0  0:00 ps l
    TiVo: {/var/tmp} %
    TiVo: {/var/tmp} %
    This is after running

    So I guess something's still wrong :(

    tivoweb.cfg=

    Code:
    UserName =
    Password =
    Port = 1712
    Prefix =
    Theme = tivocomm.css
    DescriptionHover = 1
    MultiDelete = 1

    I know what I'm supposed to see as I've done it before when it's worked. However, what I'm getting at the moment is simply what looks like two carriage returns.

    [​IMG]

    I assume these are generated (for want of a better word) by the command-prompt or kernel as I don't enter them.

    ETA:
    I've decided to blitz the TW directory and do a complete re-install. I think I fudged it last time :)

    Well, it didn't work then it did so I don't know what I did, but it fixed it :confused:

    Now to re-install some hacks :D

    ETA:
    :mad: WTF? :mad:

    Now it's stopped working again :confused:

    I got to the main TW index page, but none of the links worked. Then I couldn't get to the main page anymore :confused:

    That's it! I'm off to bed :(

    There should not be any dash in the command line at all for
    "tivoweb console" fWIW

    Woohoo! A little slow but it got there! See; I knew there'd be an easy solution :( I feel suitable stupid now :eek:

    ETA:
    Of course, it doesn't explain why TW wouldn't load without the 'console' command previously :confused:
