View Full Version : ExtractStream: do I have to use NFS or SAMBA?
I've read alot all the posts about mounting linux or Win2k file systems and there seems to be a lot of problems. Will this idea work?
Create a directory on on tivo, for example /Extract
ExtractStream 53476 5347753478
FTP in and download program1.m2v and program1.m2v to my linux box
If it's not possible could someone spell it out for a newbie exactly what I must do to mount my Red Hat 7.1 linux box to the tivo file system.

I'll give this a wack.
First there is not enough space on the tivo to store the streams except on the MFS partitions, so they have to go elsewhere.
Assuming you have TivoNet running first:
Depending on the version of the software in the Tivo, you first need the following:
For v1.3 :
Put this where you put the other kernel modules, ie. 8390.o and tivone.o on the tivo
Type from bash prompt on tivo depending on above:
insmod -f /yourpathtomodules/nfs.o
insmod -f /yourpathtomodules/nfs-2.0.1.o
On your RedHat machine, add the following line to the
You can "man exports" on the RedHat machine to understand what the above line does.
Make sure the mount point, /wheretomountonlinux exists and is on a partition that has gigabytes of space on your linux machine.
Then type on the RedHat machine:
if it fails type
if that fails, let us know.........
if it worked, go back to the tivo and do the following:
mount linuxipaddress:/wheretomountonlinux /var/tmp/mnt
At this point you should be good.
You should be able to
ls -l /var/tmp/mnt
and see or modify or add any files in the /wheretomountonlinux on the RedHat machine.
If so, change you ExtractStream commands to export to /var/tmp/mnt
you can add the insmod line and the mount line to your rc.sysinit file on the tivo to remount upon reboots.
