    used ptvs slicer 1.3a on my ptvnet Hr10-250, everything seemed to be copying but then it suddenly rebooted while copying file, now it is stuck on "powering up" "recovering from serious error" screens, they just keep alternating.

    Here was what telnet gave me:

    installing new software
    installsw.itcl ran successfully and setup new partitions
    new root filesystem partition is 4
    new kernel partition is 3

    mounting your new root filesystem /dev/hda4
    copying author file
    copying tivowebplus
    copying /var/hack
    copying init directory
    copying /var/spool
    copung /test.conf
    copying all files in root non-recursively (and when this showed on the screen, it rebooted)

    If I pulled the drives, can I just copy the files into the proper directories? If so, what do I have to do?

    Exactly which driver file is required in order to use the linksys usb200m v.2? And exactly what are the changes requjired in the usb.map file? Has anybody posted a copy of usb.map with the correct changes? Thanks!

    I don't care about dialing out but I just don't want my HDTiVo to reboot. Right now, it reboots when it tries to automatically dial out whether it is configured to network or phone. I just want callerid and no rebooting. I believe fakecall is working for me as it shows up on the screen at boot and is in cron. Logs looks good too. Does fakecall actually prevent it from trying to dial out or just remove the nag? Sorry for the dumb question - I just never cared about fake call as I always just let it dial out.

    Fakecall should keep it from dialing out by tricking it into thinking it dials out every night at 10 PM or whenever it is setup in cron. So the TiVo thinks it is making a successfull call every night.

    I appreciate the info. From what I read, fakecall only resets the "last successful call" not prevents the next call. Is that incorrect? When I run fakecall, I don't see any change in the "last attempt" or "Next attempt". Granted, I ran it manually about 5 minutes after a successful connection - that may be why. What should it do? Perhaps it is just saying successful but isn't working. I am having trouble finding the official fakecall support thread - sorry.

    FYI: We got some pretty good info in NCID thread about the lock file NCID looks for to ignore the modem during dial in. It looks like the lock file isn't in /var/tmp in 6.3 where NCID expects it to be.

    I am having a devil of a time trying to mount my tivo disk from my hr10-250 on my linux box. I'm trying to mount it so I can restore the original 6.3 /lib/modules files. I've tried using mfstools and the kazymyr boot cd, neither seems to be able to mount any partitions from the tivo disk. I've tried all the combinations of dma/nodma/byteswap/nobyteswap and vmlnodma/vmlinuz. I always either get the 'you must specify the filesystem type' message, or just an error. dmesg reports that it can see the partitions on the disk. What am I missing?

    Nevermind that last message, I just noticed the boot cd image with lba48 support, that's got me going.

    I noticed recently, that my cron job hasn't been running on my 6.3a HR10. It stopped running about 10 days ago, and I just got around to troubleshooting it today, so I thought I would post about it here is case someone else has the issue. I new it wasn't running since there were no regular updates to cronlog-main for fakecall and reboots, but there were also no updates to cron.test.out. The weird thing was that I could see that crond was running in the output from ps. So after searching a lot here and on DDB, I came across a post by AlphaWolf that said in order to run crond, you need to run the following commands:
    Code:
    echo "root:x:0:0:root:/:/bin/sh" >> /etc/passwd
    echo "root:x:0:" >> /etc/group
    So I checked on my 6.2 HDVR2, and these files were created with the proper info, but they did not exist on my 6.3a HR10. So I ran the two commands, and restarted crond, and now it is working again. Now why these two files got removed, I have no idea, but I thought I would post my experience so hopefully it may save some time for someone else.

    ETA: I am not saying it is necessarily an issue with 6.3(a), just that it was on 6.3a when I noticed it happened.

    If you installed cron with the enhancement script, it created those files for you. Sounds like you didn't copy them over when you moved to 6.3.

    small problem. Just installed with the slicer, and fat fingered my router IP so got the following message. I haven't rebooted yet and still have telnet/ftp access.

    Please enter a static IP address for your Tivo: Invalid IP address. Try again..
    Please enter a static IP address for your Tivo: 192.168.1.40

    Please enter the IP address of your router: Invalid IP address. Try again...
    Please enter the IP address of your router: 192.165^H^H^[[D^H^H^H^H

    Invalid IP address again! You'll need to edit your author file before rebooting

    Your Tivo will be configured with the following network parameters:
    IP address = 192.168.1.40
    Router IP = 192.165
    Are these values correct? [y/n]:
    6.3a-01-2-357 installation is complete!!

    Hit <enter> to reboot your TiVo and start using your new software,
    or hit <cntrl-c> to exit and check things out first.​

    So where is the author file I need to edit? I looked at /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author but it shows no changes from earlier
    i.e.
    #configure ethernet
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.40 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
    sleep 100

    I figured that the enhancement script takes care of this. I went to 6.3 with the slicer v1.3 and then to 6.3a with slicer v1.3a.

    1.3a was created once 6.3a slices were released because the 1.3 version didn't like the naming scheme of the slices and said it was invalid.

    would anyone be so kind as to post up the 6.3 (or 6.3a) /lib/modules I dont care if they are stock or not, but I screwed up and somehow deleted over everything including the subfolders of 2.4.4 and kernel in that root. I am stuck at account closed and there is nothing I can do.

    One of the directions I have read in "other" forums mention using add63.tcl script if no slices have been received. Has anyone heard of this script? Where does one find this add63.tcl script?

    I think that was directed toward nakedeye posting someone else's script without credit.
