I just installed the CacheCard 2.2 into my Series 1 SW v3.1C2. I had no problems with Install_nic process. I am able to ping and telenet and ftp files to the file system.

I have interest in extracting video and possibly callerID.

My questions are as follows:

I have looked in tivo underground and dealdatabase and have found installation scripts that install alot of stuff. Some support TurboNet/TivoNet some don't. Some are very old and I'm concerned they may not work with my SW version.

A) If I install one of these (Sleeper, Kraven, Tivolater, Alarmtronics, tivoscripts, montestuff,) will they overwrite what install_Nic did?

B) Will I need to remove my drive again to install them? Can I install what I need w/o removing?

C) I have looked at all the newbie How to's and most of them do not explain what they are, but how to install them. Can you explain in short what they do.

D) As far as extraction, can I extract my existing recordings? If so how, How?

E) What is this scrambling switch about?

Thanks :)
