My prom was changed and SApper/tweak was installed. I am using telnet to get me a BASH prompt. Can someone suggest a resource that list the commands I can use at this BASH prompt?

I googled and found this site with linux commands http://www.ss64.com/bash/ but a lot of them come back as "command not found". I assume Tivo is using a reduced version of Linux.

Me end result, now that I have the tweaks running (I assume they are running) I am looking for the means to verify they are running ok and adjust the parameters for my needs. I hit yes to everthing in the Tweak script but I don't believe I need fake call to run because I want my guide data to stay current. I also don't believe my system needs to be rebooted twice a week, I'd say once a month would be good for me. How do I adjust these settings.

Here is a list of commands I can think of at this time;

View a directory (list the files like DIR)
Edit a config file (like EDIT Config.sys)
Move a file from my PC to my TIVO and place it where I want it

you have to change the cron file name "root" in "/var/spool/cron/crontabs/"

I'm pretty sure that is where it is.....

Thanks guys, I did find that I can reliably FTP into the Tivo. I didn't realize FTP was installed by SApper. I can also right click on files in FTP and edit them.

I am trying to get one thing working. Any suggestions to make NCID work? I think if I can see how to make one thing work I can apply that logic to the rest.

Yep, this is where it was. Luckily I previously found this site with instructions regardng the parameters no mention place forum/showpost.php?p=189482&postcount=7

Careful with that. Make sure your FTP client/editor isn't placing DOS-style line endings (^M) upon saving. You are better off using a native editor like joe or vi. It's not too difficult to learn basic commands for them.
Whoops. I made some changes though nothing works that I can tell except FTP. How will I know if my text editor is putting te ^M in? Will I see the symbol if I open the file with Joe?

This is my second day working on my Tivo and I was hoping someone would help me make a baby step if not crawl. This is really frustrating when the only step I thought I made forward I was warned not to do. And it was even second. Anything I can do?

Here is a list of my PS command. Do I have TWP running? Can you see something running that I can verify if it works or not?

No, it is not running. If it were running, you would see the process as something like "/TivoWebPlus/httpd-tt.tcl" probably multiple instances.

The "httpd" process you see is the built-in tivo web server.
Great, now I have a starting point to go from. Thanks

Here's what mine looks like:
Code:
  314 root       1716 S   /tvbin/tivosh /var/hacks/TivoWebPlus/httpd-tt.tcl
  315 root        168 S   /bin/bash /var/hacks/TivoWebPlus/tivoweb
  318 root       1716 S   /tvbin/tivosh /var/hacks/TivoWebPlus/httpd-tt.tcl
  319 root       1716 S   /tvbin/tivosh /var/hacks/TivoWebPlus/httpd-tt.tcl
You could try some things like:
Code:
./tivoweb start
Code:
./tivoweb restart
You may have to do it from within the ~/TivoWebPlus/ directory depending on how your path is set.

Would not getting superpatch to run cause any of these problems like not getting TWP to run at start up, no NCID, XBOX won't get data from Tivo etc...?

I get this when I run superpatch

patching file superpatch-67all-NutKase-1.2.tcl
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 696.
Hunk #3 FAILED at 965.
Hunk #4 FAILED at 1023.
4 out of 4 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file superpatch-678all-NutKase-1.12.tcl.rej

I attached the rejection file but I had to change the .rej to .txt to get it to upload

No. They have nothing to do with eachother. Issues with ccxstream maybe, but definitely not with ncid or twp.
