I've tried, tried, tried and failed. I'm trying my very hardest to install tivoweb or tivowebplus, i've been sat here for 5 hours now and i'm no further on. I've searched the forum but i'm assuming i'm thick because i didn't even know how to use telnet 2 hours ago. I used telnet to create the /var/hack directory then used flashfxp to transfer the various files then i used telnet to extract the file and finally came to run it, nothing happened the first time as i was following one website saying to type /var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb, then i found out that i was supposed to be typing console on the end of it which i did and it set off but then stuck, i never got any message saying awaiting commands. so i deleted that and tried installing tivowebplus. Oh the fun. Telnet took off upon me trying to extract the file and just gave me a screen of junk then crashed. I'm very tired now and stuck in a rutt. Anyone please can you tell me where i'm going wrong?? :mad:

Cheers for the speedy reply Mike, just tried that and downloaded the tivoweb file, the file ends in .tar.tar so i renamed it .tar.gz and extracted it and cot the tivoweb-tcl directory, fired it up using the command /var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb console but it just says

The program is licensed under the GPL.
see the copyright bla bla bla
No EventSwitcher active
while executing
"dbopen $dbPoolSize"
<file "/var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/httpd-tt.tcl" line 612>

then it freezes and i get no message saying Awaiting Connection.

I'm well and truely lost, did i mention stressed, lol.
I thought hacking the tivo would be fun but there's too many conflicting message boards with different ways of installing things :confused:
