View Full Version : How do I Unscramble an extracted TY file from a S2 DTivo?

I am starting to get it...

I have both TyTools and MFP_ftp working on my S2 DTivo and can download TY files with either one. When I try to do anything with the TY files, I get "Sorry... Failed to get the first 10 initial chunks..."

It sounds like I need to set my TiVo not to scramble shows, and I think I can see how to do that. However, I have a few questions:

1) Is there a tool that I can use on the PC (Windows XP) to unscramble the shows I have downloaded?
2) If I change my TiVo settings to not scramble recorded shows, will it prevent me from watching the shows that are already recorded & scrambled?
3) Can I unscramble the shows that have already been recorded and still on the TiVo?

1) No.
2) No.
3) Yes. (Look for S2_unscramble). You might even be able to unscramble already extracted shows if you can get them back on the DTiVo.
