View Full Version : Can I save my prefs before reinstalling Extreme?

10-26-2002, 12:54 PM
I think my system is hosed. It went into demo mode, and then when i rebooted, I get the green screen of death that wants me to wait 24 hours to download something that will fix the tivo.

Since this is a hacked Extremem DirecTivo, I doubt that will work. I figured I need to re-install 2.5 extreme from scratch. OK - but now I will lose all my settings and programs. I assume saving the programs is almost impossible, but is there a way to save my settings so I don't have to teach the new one what shows I want recorded?

Or, if someone can point me to a place that attameps to troubleshoot damaged boots, that would be helpful.

Assuming the settings data is intact, you could try to do a backup using mfstools 2.0.

try getting bash, and just type "fsfix", wait til it finnishes, then reboot and see if all works normaly again.
