Hi, had a tivo since 2001 - and been reading but too scared to post! A really useful forum - thanks!
I installed a cache card with 512MB yesterday. I want to install tivoweb, but I'm confused about which version I should use for a UK tivo. I've read that the ui.itcl module doesn't work on uk modules. Is that also true for latest version of tivoweb? And what about tivoweb plus?
Basically, I'm a bit confused about where to find the latest/best version to use for a UK tivo. Can anyone help please?
Thanks!

AFAIK there are 3 versions doing the rounds.

Tivoweb was the original project but development stopped and he product is frozen at version 1.9.4. However, module development still goes on. Also, some UK users find the original Tivoweb to be less of a strain for their tivos.

Tivowebplus picked up from where Tivoweb left off and offered extras over Tivoweb. Most of the modules for Tivoweb also work for Tivowebplus.

There is a new Tivowebplus on the block now called Tivowebplus 2. This is a complete rebuild and is primarily aimed at the new tivos in the USA but it also seems to work on UK tivos. Old Tivoweb and Tivowebplus modules do not work with Tivowebplus 2.

The official Tivoweb website is here http://tivo.lightn.org/
But you will need some UK addons (ui.itcl and genres.js)

The official Tivowebplus 1 website is here http://tivowebplus.sourceforge.net/

You can find out about Tivowebplus 2 and UK tivos here http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=343472

Oh dear. I installed tivoweb 1.9.4
Worked ok, so I modified tivoweb.cfg and added username and password. Restarted tivoweb and still ok. Then I modified the sysinit author file using command:
echo "/var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author
Then I restarted tivo to make sure it all worked. It went into a reboot loop and finally I got the green screen of death.
Can anyone help please?!

...went out - and when I got back fully expecting to remove hard drive and use a back up copy - or something - it was working. Not brave enough to restart and see if it works again!
I wonder what caused it. Maybe hard drive on way out or something. Anyhow, good to have it back :)

FWIW, TivoWeb backgrounds itself so the & is not needed - but it doesn't hurt.

I suspect something else caused the reboot loop (which then will cause the GSOD). The repair under a GSOD won't fix rc.sysinit.author either.
