View Full Version : BASH gets horked on a 2.5 SA Tivo

I've been running hacked Hughes DTivos for a while, but recently got hold of a 2.5 standalone Tivo that I wanted to play with. ALthough I think I did everything right for getting a bash prompt, it does not work right.

In Tera Term, here is what I see
"bash: no job control in this shell

Any letters or keys that I press result in garbage being dumped to the tera term screen. Can anyone suggest/help with what I am doing wrong?

At the bash prompt, type:

Well, I feel really stupid now. It turns out that the problem was that the serial port was setup for controlling a DSS receiver, so that was what horked my bash prompt. I had missed that bullet point, but thanks for pointing it out.

I am now up & running great! Thanks for the help!
