Hi,

Each time I reboot I always have to re-enter the select-play-select-pause-select and select-play-select-30-select backdoor codes to have the fast-banner-removal and the 30-second-forward-skip button. Is there a way I can make this setting automatically occur on reboot now that I'm networked/hacked ?

Yep, do a search for Hackman, which also gives you tons of other functionality ;) N.B. Make sure you read the readme thoroughly, particularly wrt startup files!
I just looked into Hackman. Seems like the only thing I'd want from it would be the ability to set these backdoor codes. On reflection I think I'll stick with having to press the keys, a lot less hassle :D

bi66er,

I think I came to the same conclusion.. Hackman was too much for what I wanted to do.

There is a skip30 file that will enable this on startup though, but I can't find it now.
I think it patched the tivoapp code itself... it only toggles one bit.
I have it somewhere, but don't know where it came from.
I will see if I can dig it out tonight.

I'm sure there's another tool somewhere that will simulate keypresses on startup that could be used for the fast blanking thing.

Cheers,
Mike

You can permanently set the 30 second skip button by changing one byte in tivoapp with a hex editor. I've done it with mine and it's great.

I think the details are on Deal Datbase somewhere as someone wronte a patching tool.

Can someone remind me: what is the Advance Key (i.e. ">|") default acton?

Is it skip to tick, or 30 second skip?
The default action for that key is to skip to the end of the recording.

It certainly did help. Thanks, that's great - and possibly the easiest way of doing it too :)
Bloody irritating though if you're trying to watch something after a reboot!

The tivoapp patch is just as easy to do, and it's a one-off.

There is a patchers app, by MuscleNerd for UK TiVos - google on:

MuscleNerd v2.5.5

or if you are happy using a hex editor:

Code:
All Values are Hex

Sw Version          Offset              Original Value      New Value
2.5.5               002D51EC            41860034            40860034

Having done some more digging, I find it was MuscleNerd's patch I applied.
Much better than the keystroke thing...

Find it attached, including instructions & source code.
It is easy to carry out, as long as you follow the instructions carefully.

HTH,
Mike

Thanks Mike, good to have that here for future ref. Personally I'm happy with my tivoweb keystroke version :)

Thanks for the easy link. Just done this now as my Tivo powered off when our consumer box tripped. I had got sick of doing the keypresses after 4 years so ran the patch and it was dead easy. I should have done this years ago...

Looking to perform this patch but my tivoapp seems to have an original value of 41860024.

Any idea why and is it safe to change?

Regards
