I have been searching but unable to find an answer and I am sure this is not the correct forum but I am at a loss. So here it goes.

If I have a TivoHD and a series 2 both with wireless adapters, can I watch HD programs recorded on the TivoHD on my Series2? I have an HD tv in both my bedroom and my living room, but I only have one HD Tivo. I want to know if I record HD programming on the Tivo HD, can I then watch it on the series 2 in the bedroom?

Please help or at least direct me in the right direction. Sorry if I have gotten off topic in this particular thread.

I can anwser that,I am quite a bit experience, but just don't know alot about the software above 6.2a. Not done this in years. YOu can transfer shows to one another MRV if you have anything below 6.3 aka 6.2. Also you not going to be able to that HD contect on standard box, weel maybe not in HD anyway.

You might try starting a thread solely for this question. This thread is talking about hacking DirecTV Tivos. You are not likely to get many answers about a TivoHD since its a good bet most people reading this thread don't have one since it can't be used with satellite.

Hacking your 6.2 DirecTivo just got very easy! Rbautch and I have partnered to create a tool that completely automates the "Unguide" and installs his Tivo Enhancements, allowing you to completely hack your Tivo in no time at all. We thought it was the next logical step in Tivo Hacking, and so we proudly present "The Zipper". The Zipper is as easy as Tivo hacking gets! Please note, I will no longer be monitoring the 6.2 to hacked 6.2 thread so if you have questions ask them in THIS one. Support for Rbautch's enhancement script will continue in his original thread.
Many thanks to principal tester Dirac, and beta testers Jasch, Tsunami, and David Platt. Special thanks to Lou Jacob for his guidance throughout the development of The Zipper.
Please note, Rbautch and I will be monitoring this thread very regularly, so PLEASE don't discuss it at "the other place" or fill up our PM Boxes with questions.
DO NOT POST ON DDB ABOUT THE ZIPPER....
I thought I would recognize Russ and Gunny again on this 4th anniversary of a tremendous tool that helped so many and to those countless others who have provided support along the way. I think we've proved quite a few people wrong who said this kind of script would be a bad thing and not be supported!

Congrats and THANK YOU! :up:

Yes, but not directly. You will need a PC in between to convert the HD to SD the Serties 2 can play. See the MHO/HME/TTG forum for details on that.

I am running 2 zippered directv tivos.

When they changed the guide format a year or so ago to where some shows that were season passes wouldn't record, I used tivoweb plus to go through my favorite channels weekly and selected shows that wouldn't otherwise be recorded.

Has there been an update to zipper that fixes this problem? If there has, would someone please send me the link to those instructions. I have searched some but this is a giant confusing forum.

Thanks,

My DVR40's hard drive died so I went out an purchased a new 320GB hard drive for it. I dusted off my LBA48 boot cd and tools cd with the 6.2 image that I used several years ago to zipper the drive that died.

I zippered the new drive and all seemed fine. I put the drive in the tivo and it got the welcome screen and then the almost done screen for a few seconds. It then showed a Green error screen noting a Severe Error. it then rebooted and kept repeating the process

I have pulled the drive and rezippered it again with the same result.

I verified that all cables are seated properly.

Any suggestions?

The Zipper does not fix this issue. You have to manually reschedule recordings.

I don't have a windows machine to run MISO from. So I translated zipper_isomaker to a unix shell script that runs on FreeBSD so I can build images. The only odd thing about the script is that I cheated and used the iso extraction feature of FreeBSD's tar. Other systems may need to install the so-called "libarchive" version of tar to run this script. Otherwise you have to play the mount the iso game, which requires privs and is extremely system dependent...

I've tested it on one upgrade of my HR10-250 and it seems to work ok, but having feedback from a larger community would be nice. I know this is kind of trailing edge stuff, but maybe somebody can benefit.

It also looks like I had to upload it as a zip file rather than the script. If you don't know how to cope with that, you're likely better off giving this script a pass.

Enjoy

i am trying to create an iso using zipper with the intacake image and other needed files, but when it runs it says created without tivo image
then i copied the 0000 file to the temp director and it says it used the image but the size of the final file is sill only about 13 megs

this is what i get in the cmd prompt when i run the batch file:

Checking for required tivo tools and files...
Extracting Tivo image from your Instantcake iso...
1 file(s) moved.
Adding files to your boot disk...
1 file(s) moved.
Created zipper_universal_CD.iso WITHOUT Tivo image.

Modifying your terminal settings for telnetting to your Tivo...
Changing CRLF registry value...
Changing TermType registry value...
Changing BSASDEL registry value...
Done!
Press any key to close this window.

ok after enabling admin mode on msio, i can see this in the window before it closes
Missing terminate volume in the ISO file

This is pretty cool, thanks! I haven't had a chance to test it yet, but I skimmed through the script, and noticed a few apparent typos:

Code:
ic_iso=`echo instantcase*.iso`
should be:
Code:
 ic_iso=`echo instantcake*.iso`
Code:
iso=`echo mfsalive*.iso`
should be:
Code:
iso=`echo mfslive*.iso`

For thenamelessone:

I just created a new Zipper Univeral CD ISO the other day. It took me a little while to realize I was trying to create an ISO greater than 300 MB. The free version of Magic ISO will not create an ISO larger than 300 MB.

I used the GUI to add/delete files manually according to the zipper_isomaker.bat file. I was only able to get the size down to 304MB. Using a registerd version of miso.exe, I was able to create the ISO.

Hi,

I've got a pair of ebay'd hdvr-2 units and I followed the instructions with current downloads of IC 6.4a for the hdvr-2 and the ptvlba image.

It appears to work correctly and I telneted into the systems to complete the hack script.

Ok, here's the problem....

The units work but I cannot record shows because my account status is closed.

Any idea where I went wrong with this?

Thanks!

Alan

Do you have valid access cards inserted and have you activated the DVR service with D***. The hacks do not allow for unauthorized service.
