05-13-2003, 09:07 PM
I'm a total newbie, so bare with me. I have a linksys BEFSR41 router and I installed a turbonet ethernet card in my Tivo series 1. I can make my daily calls perfectly. The problem is that I want to extract video. I downloaded and installed TyStudio. I connect to my router in my web browser and go into the dhcp client table and I show my 2 pc's and this.... 00-0B-AD-35-C9-64 . I assume this is my tivo. The client hostname is blank. When I put this IP address in TyStudio it doesn't see it. Now I don't know what else to do. Someone please help me.

As a newbie myself, nice to meet you. I have the exact same equipment as you and just learned how to do the extraction yesterday after I installed my Turbonet card. In my Linksys router config I have the DHCP enabled and to start at On my network I use static IPs for the machines. When I connected my Tivo I figured there's a dang good chance the IP would default to and it did.

As for extraction. I followed this page below. The extract works perfectly, but not for my older 2+ year-old shows I want to extract. I'm still looking for a way to manipulate those. For anything recently recorded in the last year I haven't had any problems extracting those shows.


I found these instructions really easy to follow. hope you will too.

A couple of questions:

Did you ftp over the software for TyStudio that needs to be installed on the Tivo? TyStudio is 2 parts. The client (your PC), and the server (the Tivo). Both need to be installed and working

Are you running noscramble?

You have to run noscramble if you plan on doing any extracting. Scrambled videos will not extract.

Hey, ID_MAn. Does that sound like the right address for my tivo? Also, what do I use for the port and id and password when I ftp to it?

When you FTP into your Tivo just ignore the username and password as its not needed.
