Here's the latest experimental -- looks like ccxstream and elseed are working OK, but I need feedback on cachecard.

There are now entries in the hackman.cfg file to indicate whether cachecard is:
0 = not installed
1 = installed, default to off
2 = installed, default to on

The idea is that when hackman starts, it will either consider cachecard to be on or off (default). From there, it will toggle cachecard on and off. If it's out of phase to begin with, an extra cycle of turning it on or off will be required to align it properly.

Since I'm writing this "blind" and can't test it, I'll expect a few errors before I get it right. So please let me know as much as you can, error messages and such, and I'll get it running.

Dialanothernumb, you're welcome!

Fixed now. You tickle one end and the other giggles.

I've come up with a way to allow tserver alone to operate. It looks for NowShowing.tcl as a test for TyTool.

As for alphabetizing, I want the most frequent running hacks up top. Personal preference. Allowing the order to be customized would be a challenge.

Check out the prototype in the next post. Still looking for cachecard comments!

You can downgrade to the P version, or reload the Q version.
Thanks stark, that would explain it. I'll remember that next time it stops working.

Can you walk me through how to edit in HackManager. I have configured the password to get into the "dangerous" functions yet have not found link in HM that requests the pw nor can I figure out how to edit. Any help is greatly appreciated! I am currently displaying:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TiVo Hack Manager
TiVo Telnet TiVo FTP
TivoWeb 1.9.4 TyTool (tserver)
TiVo Resources Reload (stop/start) TivoWeb 1.9.4
Reboot TiVo

Enter shell command:

In an attempt to be less than obvious, I made the entry point to the "dangerous" section the dateline at the bottom. Just click on "June, 2004" and you'll be there.

On my HDRV2, I'm not seeing HackMan in my TiVoWeb plus menu.

It shows up fine on my Series-1 SA.

I don't have an HDRV2 to test it on, but there's no reason why it shouldn't at least appear as a menu item. Not to be insultingly obvious, are you sure hackman.itcl and hackman.cfg are in the modules directory of your TivoWebPlus? And have you done a complete shut down of TWP and restart from telnet? This shouldn't be necessary, but may be the kick it needs.

PortlandPaw - nope, you're not being insulting at all!

Both files are in the modules folder. I've actually completely rebooted the TiVo several times, playing with other hacks.

The only time I haven't seen hackman load is when it has some kind of fatal error in it. So, first, I'm assuming you're using v1.0 and not the experimental version I've been working with in this thread.

So with v1.0 installed, shut down TWP completely and from a telnet session enter the start command, "tivoweb console." If you get any error messages please cut, paste and send them to me. Thanks!

Thanks for the tip on echoing the TiVo output to the console...

Code:
hackman
NONE can't read "tivoweb194path": no such variable
    while executing
"file exists $tivoweb194path/tivoweb"
    (file "./modules/hackman.itcl" line 24)
    invoked from within
"source $module "
I've remmed the "tivoweb194path" line in hackman.cfg . I don't have 1.94 installed, only TiVoWeb Plus.

HackMan works beautifully if I unrem the "tivoweb194path" line, and point it to my TiVoWeb Plus installation.

Seems as if both TiVoWeb 1.94 and TiVoWeb Plus are required for HackMan...?

At the risk of topic drift, it seems that it might behoove me to ask, "Should I have both 194 and Plus installed, and why?" :confused:

I love happy endings. No, there's no reason to have both 1.9.4 and Plus installed other than to offer people the option of having both available for various purposes and in case there are modules that work in one but not the other.

For the benefit of others installing hackman, both hackman.cfg and the readme file include instructions not to delete a path even if it's not installed. I guess I should expand that to include commenting out.

Glad you got hackman running and I hope you enjoy it.

First off, great hack here PP!!!

I'm having trouble getting "ccxstream" to show up in HackManager.
I have it in /var/hack/ccxstream/ccxstream
here's what I tried in hackman.cfg

set ccxstreampath "/var/hack/bin/ccxstream"

set 14 "exec $ccxstreampathname &"

I also tried this:

set ccxstreampath "/var/hack/ccxstream/ccxstream"

ccxstream is running fine on my Tivo, and I can start and stop it via Telnet.

What am I doing wrong here??

thanks for the help,

jb

ccxstream hasn't been added to the general distribution yet, as I'm waiting to fix cachecard support (low level priority project both on my end and, apparently, on the user side). Are you using the experimental version found here? . This one supports ccxstream, to the best of my knowledge (I don't have ccxstream to test it with).

Thanks for the reply PP...

Would it be possible for me to add the ccxstream support to HackMan 1.0?
Are there any big differences between Ver. 1.0 and Experimental Ver. 7?
I'm using HackMan 1.0 and its working great, so if I didn't have to switch to the othere version, that would be great.

thanks for the support and a great hack!

The only differences between v1.0 and Exp.7 are that 7 supports ccxstream and elseed and is in development to support cachecard, although it doesn't work yet. You can safely use Exp.7 and I would recommend you do so. Don't forget to replace both hackman.itcl and hackman.cfg!

And thanks for the kind words.
