Just to clarify Cheer's answer, the R10 is a Series 2.5 and runs 6.1. 6.2 will not work on the R10.

PlainBill

Thanks for the clarification PlainBill. I was told that the R10 runs different hardware and thats why it requires different modules. My bad, guess I better keep reading.

Would it do any good to beg a copy of 6.1? :cool:

Thanks!

I believe ther is a copy of 6.1 on eMule, but it seems rather pointless. If your system is running, pull the drive and make a backup. If you expand to a larger drive, keep the original as a backup. If you have replaced the prom and wish to hack your system, copy your original drive to a new drive and hack that.

I was hoping to get a fresh image but I see your point. There's probably not any cleaner image than the one that I already have.

Thanks Again,

In my limited experience, Sony uses unique remote codes. I'd suggest checking PTVupgrade for an image.

But first, what are the symptoms and how did you determine the drive had no partitions?

I connected the tivo drive in a pc and booted both the knoppix and the ptvupgrade iso images. When I did "cat /proc/partitions", it only showed "/dev/hda". And I got a whole lot of IDE errors (DriveError SeekComplete? Something like that)

It doesn't sound good. Just to drive the last nail into the coffin, what are the results of 'pdisk -l /dev/hdX' (where X is the drive position)?

I've never heard of a Sony 540040. The Tivo TCD540040 is not a Sony...are you certain it's a Sony?

sundog
07-10-2006, 02:19 PM
Oh @#$#@%. I assumed the guy I'm doing this for knew what was what. It's definitely a TCD540040, as evidenced by the sticker on the back. I thought it was either Sony or Philips, and it's not Philips. My bad.

PlainBill
07-10-2006, 07:30 PM
Your choices for a TCD540040 are pretty limited. PTVupgrade is the best bet; I'm not aware of one on the eD2k network.

Ahhh, PTVupgrade sells an Instantcake image for $20, and you can use any 40 Gig or larger IDE drive. You should be able to get a 200 Gig for under $100.

Jamie,

Thanks very much. I had searched the thread, but I missed that one. I'll have to learn how to expand the image, but I've learned a lot today, and one more thing won't hurt.It's a standard mfstools image. You should be able to use it with the usual instructions (e.g. hinsdale or weaknees). You'll want to use -x when you restore, but you'd probably do that anyway when you were applying it to a new drive. Beware of the Hinsdale instructions if you are using a large drive though. It doesn't include the "-r 4" option you need when creating partitions > 274GB.

Thanks for the -r 4 tip. My drive is 160 GB, but I'll file that one away if I decided to supersize in the future.

The restore went flawlessly, and now the upgraded Toshiba SD-H400 is on a Preparing Service Update screen for some time. I'll let it run a couple of hours and then power cycle if it hasn't come on line yet. That seems to be the consensus solution I found by searching.

Thanks for pointing me to the image. My kids will really enjoy having their DVR fixed.

EDIT: I now have a 188 hour Toshiba SD-H400. Only took me about 10 hours of screwing around. Luckily, the drive was only $46 after rebate. Better send those in before I forget.

I realized that after my initial post, and I did download and install eMule. But I still can't find the file. Search for "Tivo" did not yield any SD-H400 files. Is there a way I have to paste that link into eMule somehow? I've put both my brain cells to work and I can't figure it out.

PS: When I click on the link, eMule starts....but nothing else happens.

I just tried to download that SD-H400 image and it's not working for me either, sorry. Nobody must be sharing that file right now.



Maybe BrianEWilliams who apparently downloaded that image using that link yesterday, can upload it to www.sendspace.com or www.rapidshare.de and post the link for you in this thread.


Niether of those sites require you to sign up to post (or download) any files.

Rapidshare.de is a better choice because it will delete the file after 30days of inactivity. Sendspace will only keep it until 7days of inactivity.

So as long as at least one person downloads it every 30 days, it will be available for anybody looking for it in the future.

Plus rapidshare is a lot faster to download from.

(Note: with rapidshare, you have to click the Free button when asked before downloading.)

It would be nice if these images were seeded from more than one server so a single server outage wouldn't make them unavailable. That depends on more people leaving their emule clients running all the time to share images.

Somebody wanted 6.2.dtivo.minimal.AlphaWolf_HK.zip from me, so I uploaded it to sendspace for them...

figure it might be useful to someone else looking for an image:

I happened to see this one on emule today: ed2k://|file|minimal-7.2.2-oth.01-2-140.mfs|88704148|D3EBB179DD17E04E11CA2FDB9353F8CF|/|h=MWOIQQZYWW5K4DZ6IFCXCRWKSRZ7JOXR|/

The 140 version is also the right one for 240 hardware.

This is a minimal image, meaning it will fit on any size drive > 1GB, and must be expanded (-x) when restored. It's using one partition pair, so it can be expanded twice; useful if you upgrade drives again later.

The bootpage has the console= and dsscon= kernel options set. You may want to clear these with bootpage if you plan to drive a cable box via serial.
I know it's the image begging thread, but does anyone even bother searching....it's post #712.

You can go back to the two posts here (http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?p=233220#post233220) and perhaps find the 3.1.5 kernel, but those sources may not have the 7.2.2-oth-K1 kernel. The 3.1.5 kernel will work on a 264, but you won't be able to use dhcp without an additional kernel module.

Best bet for the 7.2.2-oth-K1 kernel (broken record mode) is still probably the $5 PTVUpgrade lba48 iso.

If DHCP is the only difference then I guess for now I don't plan to use DHCP so if I set the IP/subnet/gateway mannually then I should be fine with 3.1.5 right? I am trying to use crossover cable to connect.

Can you make me understand what is the difference.These are tivo software versions. 3.1.5 was for the HDTivo; 7.2.2-oth-K1 was for Series2 tivos. Both came with linux 2.4.20 kernels that have a killhdinitrd exploit. Both kernels are compatible with tivo software 7.3.1, with the exception of the dhcp issue I mentioned.

It's 3.1.5, not 3.5.1.

The kernel image (".px" file) may be compressed and may have already have had killhdinitrd run on it. Check whatever documentation came with the kernel. There's usually a README or something.

You want killhdinitrd not killinitrd - they are two different things. You manually set the IP address in the Tivo GUI under Network settings.

Could someone please point me in the right direction?
What image can I use (i.e. do I have to use a specific image for the SVR3000 or would any Standalone Series 2 image work)?
What should I search for to locate a working image torrent?

What are the main advantages of using a hacked image instead of a clean stock image?

I assume replacing my tivo HD with a large drive with a new image will not affect my lifetime service subscription, right?

Any advice or links to helpful forum discussion you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Did you bother reading the instructions for TiVoScripts (AKA Sleeper's iso)? How about searching for reason=60?

TiVoScripts is obsolete, has been for years, and can not work on the TCD540xx. That product was designed to be immune to the monte exploit. Sleeper tried to make his product foolproof, obviously you aren't even at that level.

PTVupgrade sells an Instantcake image for your system; they tried to make it ID10T proof; now you have a chance to check that out.

If anyone can point me to an image for the sony series 1 tivo svr-2000 so that I can build a drive and see what other "deals" I got with this supposed lifetime unit, I would greatly appreciate it.

thx!

p.s. I'd read that the phillips and sony were basically the same unit with exact same hardware (manufactured by a 3rd party). Is this true? If so, can I load a phillips HDR212 image on a sony svr-2000?

How about this. I will provide a direct download link to a Philips HDR112 image or a TCD240xxx image to anyone who can provide me with a verifyable link to a good 7.2.2-oth-K1 kernel or the enhanced cd iso w/ kernel everyone talks about. I'll post back once I have it.

Right.These are tivo software versions. 3.1.5 was for the HDTivo; 7.2.2-oth-K1 was for Series2 tivos. Both came with linux 2.4.20 kernels that have a killhdinitrd exploit. Both kernels are compatible with tivo software 7.3.1, with the exception of the dhcp issue I mentioned.

Jamie, is the 3.1.5 kernel LBA48 compatible? My guess is that it is NOT.

My guess is that it is NOT.The 3.1.5 kernel is absolutely LBA48 compatible; the only notable issue (as Jamie already pointed out) in using the 3.1.5 on 7.X tivo software is the use of DHCP is non-working w/out additional hacking, but you can simply set up a static IP address in the tivo gui.

Here's a minimal 7.2.2b sd-h400 (264) image: ed2k://|file|minimal-7.2.2b-oth.01-2.264.mfs|89354390|BAAB84E1474494A5A55B19A4F2E8AD19|/|h=OBDXJJRVNJWHNALGC6JBOCK76RSDDA3Y|/

As above, this is a minimal image, meaning it will fit on any size drive > 1GB, and must be expanded (-x) when restored. It's using one partition pair, so it can be expanded twice; useful if you upgrade drives again later. The image doesn't have the capacity lock that a stock sd-h400 image would have. Other than that, everything is stock (unhacked).

Jamie,

I saw your post #717 about the "minimal-7.2.2b-oth.01-2.264.mfs" being appropriate for the SD-H400. I haven't been able to get that from emule, but I was able to get "minimal-7.2.2-oth.01-2-140.mfs". Do you know if that would work in a Toshiba SD-H400 as well?


krellkraver

----- EDIT -----

I tried the "minimal-7.2.2-oth.01-2-140.mfs" on my SD-H400 and it think I've answered my own question: it will not work. It seems to run OK, but the first tipoff that there's a problem was when I tried to run the sd-h400_unlock utility and it reported not finding a limit to remove. When the unit started up on this image, it asked me to press the "Select" button at the start of the guided setup routine, but would not receive the signal from "Select" button on my remote. It must be looking for the signals from a different type of remote. Guess I'll have to cross my fingers and hope for the "minimal-7.2.2b-oth.01-2.264.mfs" image to download.


Thanks,

krellkraver

Need a fresh image for fried HD and was hoping to go straight to 6.3 if anyone has an image. Would like to avoid the long wait for activation. Anyone have it?

If not, which is the right image from ED2k? There is a -std.iso (202mb) and a -1.1-3.1.5f.iso (177mb). I wouldn't have questioned it except that the size is so different.

Looking for the above image to restore my HD.

I have been at weeknees.com but without original image it doesn't mean squat.

If I can mount mac OSX 86.image from command prompt onto another partition using dd.exe and get OSX to boot up onto my PC I'm sure I can mount a tivo image. I'm just tired of reading string after string. I apologize if there is a string on "where to get images" in a sticky, but I'm just frustrated. Willing to exchange for any type of software. I just need 48 hours notice on software and a ftp address to upload to.

I've only had my HR10-250 for a couple of weeks and decided to wait for the 6.3 image before upgrading/hacking it. Thrice-daily calls since Thursday and I still don't have the coveted "Pending Restart" status. I guess DirecTV doesn't love me.

Would someone with 6.3 and network access send me with a copy of their kernel partition so I can poke around? I'm curious as to how it differs from the 2.4.20 from my hacked 6.2 boxes.

Just do a

% dd if=/hdaX of=/var/vmlinux.6.3.px # X = your boot partition

Probably not going to tell you anything, since if they've got network access they're not using the stock kernel -- instead, either the same 3.1.5 kernel you're using on 6.2, or the 7.2.2-oth-K1 kernel you can get on the PTVUpgrade $5 enhanced LBA-48 boot CD.

It's more an idle curiosity than anything else. Earlier in this thread bcc states that he poked around in the vmlinux-px file and determined that 6.3 ships with a 2.4.20 kernel compiled with a "different" gcc than the 3.0 used for 6.2. I've heard rumors that people with network access on their 6.3 machines are reporting kernel-version sensitive applications (e.g. ps, top) from 6.2 don't run on 6.3. That would indicate that the kernel isn't the same version as the 6.2 kernel (or that they copied the wrong binaries, or that the binaries are linked against an incompatible version of glibc, or...).

I just figured if I had some spare time I could disassemble the 6.3 kernel and maybe look for the instruction sequences that killhdinitrc patches in the 6.2 kernel. Who knows, I might even learn something in the process.

No biggie,

TomVo

cheer
09-21-2006, 08:23 PM
You're missing my point. If they have network access, then it's almost certain that their boot kernel is NOT the 6.3 kernel.

The 6.3 kernel (like the 7.x kernels) appears to have been compiled with gcc 3.3.4, whereas the 3.1.5 kernel we always used on 6.2 was compiled with gcc 3.0.

Killhdinitrd doesn't work on the 6.2 kernel. I recommend reading through the killhdinitrd support thread or taking a look at the source -- it's quite instructive.

Your best bet is to disconnect your Windows hard drive in your PC and boot with that PTVupgrade LBA48 boot CD (the free one should be fine). Use mfsbackup to make your own image, or simply use dd to copy the entire drive intact to a new drive. Its not that hard, and you'd be well on your way to being able to fix problems yourself.

This particular link might be old but you get the idea: ed2k://|file|minimal-7.2.2-oth.01-2-140.mfs|88704148|D3EBB179DD17E04E11CA2FDB9353F8CF|/|h=MWOIQQZYWW5K4DZ6IFCXCRWKSRZ7JOXR|/<br />

Thanks, but I think I'm in good shape. I let the Sony connect and update and it went fine. I could have sworn their were issues with putting a Philips SA image on a Sony SA but I guess that was pre 3.0

I was wrong. It has been making daily calls but it doesn't update the guide data. It says it processed the daily call successfully too. I'm thinking I might have it go through guided setup to see if that does anything. Do any of you know if that would be a waste of time?


Edit: I did the guided setup and

all seems to be well. So you can put a philips SA series one image on a Sony series one SA but you may have to do a guided setup.

Additional edit: Well damn. It's still not updating the guide. It calls, says it's successful but the guide data doesn't update. Can someone give me a series one sony SA image?

Ugh; I seem to have somehow blown away my tivoapp after running the upgrade to 3.5-01-1-011 manually. My T-60 now hangs on the "just a few more seconds" screen.

Is there any way that I can get a replacement tivoapp?

I am looking for a minimal 6.3a image or slices. I just got a HR10-250 (which already has a 6.3a). However, I want to put in a new drive and start hacking it.

Are there any copies out there? Or do people recommend going the instantcake route?

Also has anybody compiled a more current linux startup/boot CD? It would be nice to find something with SATA driver support along with some of the more recent updates to the setup tools.

If you open up your HR10-250 you will find a hard drive. MFStools (mfsbackup) can make an image of that drive which you can restore to a new drive. This image is superior to one you might find on the web, or the one from PTVupgrade because it is for your exact system, and it also happens to be free.

As far as a more current start up disk, I'm not aware of any, but it certainly would be useful.

Don't confuse kernel version with software version. 3.1.5f software will work with a 3.1.5 killhdinitrd'd kernel. So will 6.3a (though DHCP requires an external module), but you can also use the 7.2.2-oth-K1 kernel.

Yeah, I had thought about that. It was just that I was under the impression that one needed to perform at clear/delete All before creating such a back up to keep the backup at a reasonable size.

I am hoping to keep the recordings with the current drive. So I wanted to practice on a scratch drive, just to make sure I had the process right, before applying them on the original disk.

What size might one expect a mfsbackup to take up on HR10-250? (I don't care about backing the shows, just a copy of the software)? If it is less than a few Gig than I that's fine. However if it is closer to the 250G size, then I don't have enough IDE hard drive space to manage it.

This is getting off topic for this thread, but since the guy who started it is no longer around... :D

Your basic plan is good - make an image, load the image onto a new drive and experiment on that until you can copy everything from the original drive to a new drive.

A typical backup without recordings will be in the range of 150 Gig. Jamie describes how to make a minimal backup (without recordings) in this thread (http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showpost.php?p=224111&postcount=2). This image will require a 250 Gig or larger drive. There is a thread on making a small image from scratch; unfortunately nobody has done that for 6.3a yet.

I would be very grateful and happy for a link for a clean Series 2 (TiVo brand) TCD5400xx image. Helping a friend out. The disk apparently failed.

Didn't have any luck on emule.
I saw a Tivo-S2-4.0.1b-02-2-xxx.mfs
It's not clear to me if this is a match on a TCD5400xx (which previously had 7.3.1 build).

If I try this, after I restore, would it just automatically update itself to the newest version since this box has a lifetime subscription (after a few call ins)?.

I suppose that would be ok, but of course a 7.x would be better...

Well everybody here is in luck. today Registrations are open over at Demonoid (http://www.demonoid.com/register.php) If you miss registering today, it's open every Friday.

I'm aware this is not a zipper friendly site but I must mention it cause that's the key word u must search it under.

Images and more are all there for the taking. One example is to do a search on zipper and the entire image disk is there for the taking. Even IC by itself is there. IC-tcd540-std.iso , IC 6.2.iso, or for the HR 10-250 IC with slices.
The best it to do a search on zipper and everything is included, it's **** proof.

Very important I will add, if ur gonna grab the instant cake and u use it, I say go over to PTVupgrade (Now DVRupgrade) and pay them the $20 they've earned. They do sponsor this very forum and lets support them.

Hacked images are in violation of the license agreements of various hacks, and not discussed here.

You ran the superpatch and set_mrv_name on both boxes? Are either being allowed to connect to the mothership (either via dialup or network)? Odds are you managed to get yourself some keys assigned by Tivo, which you don't want.

I've made a custom .iso that uses the MFSLive BootCD (http://www.mfslive.org/) to restore AW's 62small image.

UPDATE (1/22/07): New version, updated .iso to latest MFSLive version (beta6b)

DOWNLOAD LINK: http://www.mediafire.com/?4knnm2jqoyr

File Name: mfslive6b-with-62small.iso
File Size: 90.21MB
MD5: 490aa380b92cdb6a1434ab727236ce6e (check MD5 with MD5sums (http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/md5sums/). Drag the .iso file ontop of MD5Sums.exe in a Windows Explorer window.)


This .iso will restore and expand a fresh, unhacked image (AW's 62small image) onto a 2GB+ PATA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA) (NOT SATA!!!.. as big a drive as you want.. even 750GB) hard drive for use in any of these TiVos:

* Hughes HDVR2, SD-DVR40, SD-DVR80, SD-DVR120
* Phillips DSR7000, DSR704, DSR708
* RCA DVR39, DVR40, DVR80, DVR120
* Samsung SIR-S4040R, SIR-S4080R, SIR-S4120R

The 62small image does NOT work with the R10 (uses 6.1) or the HR10-250 (uses 6.3). No formatting, or any preparation, for the drive you will restore the image to is necessary.

Restoring an image will OVERWRITE EVERYTHING on a drive.

Instructions:

1) Burn .iso, with Nero or the freeware ISO Recorder (http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/v2.htm). After installing ISO Recorder, right-click the .iso file in Windows Explorer and click "Copy image to CD".
2) Shutoff PC, connect the hard drive you wish to image, and disconnect any extra drives (to prevent you from accidentally overwriting them if you choose the wrong drive when asked.)
3) Boot CD and wait for it finish loading. When it's done loading you will see "[mfslive:/]#"

http://i16.tinypic.com/2w7fq68.jpg
http://i16.tinypic.com/2yxgk6o.jpg

4) At that [mfslive:/]# prompt, type restoreimage and press enter.
http://i12.tinypic.com/3zvyzhs.jpg

5)
Read this information about drive locations in Linux and then press enter. Excuse the typo (accidently) ... it's not worth fixing.
http://i14.tinypic.com/4fyrrsk.jpg

Once you press enter to go to the next screen, you will be shown a list of your drives. If your drive isn't listed, do not continue. Shutoff your PC (press CTRL+C to exit script and type poweroff) and check jumpers.
(for the curious, I just put "dmesg | grep hd" and then "dmesg | grep sd" in the script to list the drives...)
http://i17.tinypic.com/30bilmo.jpg

Under the list, you will be asked the three letter drive location of your drive.
http://i16.tinypic.com/2mhsbxk.jpg

Then you will be asked to confirm the drive location you entered.
http://i14.tinypic.com/400clle.jpg

The restore will begin. It took less than 5 minutes on my 40GB drive.
http://i12.tinypic.com/4c3cwgz.jpg

As you can see, the restore is quick.
http://i12.tinypic.com/40lqf76.jpg

Restore complete.
http://i14.tinypic.com/4dc9nvk.jpg


Technical info:

Restores the image with a 500MB swap (properly initialized thanks to spike2k5's MFSLive BootCD (http://www.mfslive.org/)) and a -r 4 block size. I personally use a 127MB swap but a big swap matters to some people....

The 62small.mfs file is inside the initrd so it gets loaded into memory at boot. This makes restoring much faster because MFSTools doesn't have to read the mfs image from the CD drive while restoring. Restoring is also faster because the MFSLive BootCD uses DMA mode by default.

spike2k5's MFSLive BootCD (http://www.mfslive.org/) has much better USB support. You can restore an image onto a drive inside a USB enclosure with this CD.



EDIT: I've attached the screenshots shown above should they expire from tinypic in the future.

Found a bug w/ mounting sata b drive so you might want to wait on distributing at least for few days so I can get the fixes out. Plus, I might be able to add dual expanded drives support.

I've gotten pretty good at hacking my HDR212 and was looking to get a unit for my parents. I've got a few auctions I'm looking at on Ebay, but alot of them don't mention the exact model number, only series (one guy says right in the auction, it might be HDR112, 212 or 312). I was just wondering if there are still places to pick up series 1 images before I bid, in case I ended up not getting an HDR212. It seems most of the talk on this thread are about DirectTivo and series 2.

Thanks,
Bill

Why not update to 7.2 or 8.1? 4.0.1b is obsolete and has been for some time. IIRC, there is a 4.0.1 image on the eD2K network (emule).

Are you dead set on 3.1.1e? Because the 62small image linked to a few pages back will work on the DVR40 (or so says the post). And the obligatory response to the dvrupgrade question is - why don't you just ask them? I mean it's not unreasonable to know what you're paying for...

I mean it's not unreasonable to know what you're paying for...

Good point there, but the response from this board is fast, and was just seeing if anyone knew off the top of their head. I'll also ask them.

The reason I want 3.1.1e is you get two images for the price of one. I'll install 3.1.1e, clear and del, then create a backup image. Then upgrade via phoneline and repeat.

6.2 for SD DTivos isn't as unreliable as 6.3 is with the HR10 (if that's whats you're thinking...)

There aren't many people downgrading to 3.1.1e..

Is there another reason you'd prefer 3.1.1e over 6.2?

6.2 for SD DTivos isn't as unreliable as 6.3 is with the HR10 (if that's whats you're thinking...)

Nope, that is not what I'm thinking. I want the 3.1.1e image so I can naturally upgrade to 6.2 using the phoneline. This way I'm guaranteed a nice clean 6.2 image without any hacks or "tweaks" like the instantcake version has.

InstantCake is a 'nice clean' image without any hacks and tweaks. The only thing they did is add an 'id10t proof' (tain't no such thing) installer to a clean image.
You can check on the eD2k network; get the eMule client at www.emule-project.net. Do a Global Server search for SD-DVR40, DVR40, TiVo, etc and see if you find anything.

Frankly, while it is a good idea to have a backup copy or two, I can't think of any reason I would consider going back to 3.1.1e. It's only strong point is you can quickly upgrade to 6.2.

Hi,

I just edited my installSw file although it already had the correct exec sting so I just changed reboot to exit 0 I then forced a phone call and now I see in my /var/packages some files. I am going to try to attach a screen shot and I am looking for some input as to what I actually just downloaded and if it is going to do my hacked 6.2 install any good.

Thanks

o boy... I just went back to my ftp program and in the time it took me to post this question the files in the packages directory as shown in my slices.gif have disappeared. Where did they go? did I mess anything up? Any guidance would be appreciated. If I refresh the mfs SwSystem directory in TWP I still only see the 6.2-01-2-351 and ACTIVE links listed.

Hi,

To update my experience I woke this morning to find some new slices listed on my TWP SwSystem page yet none of them seem like anything I want to get involved with. There are no 6.3 slices. Can you tell me what these might be and if they are useless how I can remove them. I have attached a screen capture and the two yellow highlighted ones are what was there as of last night so all of the others are new.

Thanks

By the way this is a directv hughes sd-dvr40 with pvnet and instant cake and a number of additional hacks.

Hi drez,

Thanks for the info. I am wondering if you can tell me what the 6.2-01-2-381 slice I received overnight is and if it is worth me trying to use the slicer to install it. I don't think I need the clean 6.2 file from the 929 thread as my instantcake/ptvnet image has 6.2. I was under the impression there was a new 6.3 that may have been worth upgrading. The only reason I am or was looking for this was because after the great results I had with the dvrupgrade scripts I went back and bought the slicer but I guess now I am seeing it was a wasted $20 since there are no slices for me to upgrade to.

If you wouldnt mind could you take a look at the overnight image attachment in my last post and tell me a little bit about what is sitting there in my SwSystem and if I need them and if I dont how I can delete them if need be.

Thanks

Jamie

...The last three digits in the swsystem name identify the platform the swsystem is intended for. You can lookup the platform codes here (http://www.weaknees.com/find-model.php), among other places. Your hughes sd-dvr40 has platform code 351, so you already have the correct version of 6.2 for that hw. Don't mess around with the others.

Audio dropouts went away once my HR10-250 was upgraded from 6.3a to 6.3b. The unit ran great for about 2 weeks, then it started rebooting 2 or 3 times a week. I also had a couple of hangups where I had to pull the plug to recover. I am going on vacation next week for 10 days and didn't feel I could trust 6.3b to record my shows so I restored 3.1.5f on both of my units.

I'm tempted to say the HR10 is obsolete; send it to Cheer and he'd reimburse shipping. ;) However, honesty forces me to admit you have at least two options: DVRupgrades has an InstantCake image for your drive for about $20; or you can fine an earlier image on the eD2K network (download the eMule client at www.emule-project.net), restore it, and your system will upgrade itself to the latest version within a few days.

Yes, newsgroups are charming. All you have to do is find the appropriate newsgroup and post a request. Within 24 hours you will get 10 messages questioning your intelligence, your morals, or your sexual orientation. Three users will post what they claim to be the file you REALLY need, while one will post the file you requested. However, one section of the file will be missing. You will also get 100 spam emails. The problem is compounded if you request a repost; the original poster will accuse you of attacking him.

Sounds like you've "been there, done that", PlainBill and I know many of us have including myself. EMule can be a bit tedious at times but in general you usually get what you're looking for in a reasonable amount of time. P2P sharing isn't as bad as some people make it out to be.

I guess I have steered off topic.
Newsgroups arent necessarily what they used to be. Well they are but... There are forums out there now setup (much like a torrent forum) so you can easily search and find things you are interested in. Files are now created that will have all the necessary files pointers in them (.nzb) so you dont even have to manually download each part and worry about missing parts. There is a program called newsbin (many others too) that have a similiar type download interface like emule and others.
IF you get a chance you might want to revisit some of the new ways of dealing with newsgroups :).

Anyways thanks for the info guys... I appreciate it.

I see they do have the 6.3c slices.

grr so i seem to have missed the slices too.

if i order the instantcake CD, is there a way to get the slices into the tivo and then use the slicer or similar method to upgrade? anyone know if getting slices off the instantcake CD and installing is documented anywhere? i dont want to build a new disk...

thanks

i saw something named Instantcake-Hr10-250-1.2-3.1.5f-Se3-01-2-357(With 6.3a Slices) on emule. dont know if that is what you guys need or not.

I think they are looking specfically for the 6.3c slices, because it has updates like the new Daylight Savings Time fixes.
