All of the other things in the /var dir are still there?
That's because they were there originally. When the log files get too full the Tivo will wipe the /var directopry and rebuild a new one from scratch. Since your /var/hack directory wasn't part of the original file structure it disappears. Rule of thumb is to install your hacks in a partition other than /var. Set up a new /hack directory in the root directory of the active partition and then revise your rc.sysinit.author file and the PATH statement to point to the new file locations.

OK - I read somewhere that " Partition 9 is a special for a number of reasons, including the fact that it usually survives a system software update by TiVo ".

So apparently the quote is just a partly accurate statement. time to relocate the hacks! Don't the hacks have to go into both active and inactive partitions?
