is it normal to have 20 something instances of myworld running on my s2 SA tivo? i actualy have multiple instances of several things.

I've noticed that once every 24 hours my tivo seems to reboot. i have to re-enter the 30 second skip every morning, as well as start up tivoweb (i know i can put that in my start up script). could this be related to the multiple instances of things running??

when i run ps x i get this:



tivo:/var/tmp$ ps x

The multiple instances of myworld are normal on a series 2; I've got 27 running. Looks like this behaviour is due to forking which is one way Linux apps can perform multiple functions concurrently.

As for the regular 24-hour reboot - I suspect it's whatever you're running every 82,800 seconds (23 hours); notice the 'sleep 82800' command.

That's way too coincidental. This is likely a script on a timer. A badly writtent TCL script can take down a TiVo and cause a reboot.

thats normal. its not actually multiple instances, but multiple processes/threads.

try this: ps auxf

you will see that they all spawn from one instance
