Is there a way to allow a series 2 tivo to browse mp3s stored on a linux machine instead of windows? I don't have xwindows installed so it would have to be command line.

there are nfs modules for the series 1 boxes so I assume that they would be available for series2 boxes as well

once you get the module go through the same setup that you would do to access files on a windows box, except mount the files via nfs instead of cifs (windows networking)

a different approach you could take is to run samba on the linux box to make it look like a windows server, at which time you just follow the directions for a windows share.
