View Full Version : Question on creating backups...

06-22-2006, 08:45 PM
My HD10-250 is now fully hacked and running TyTools, thanks a great deal to this forums users. So can I simply pull the video files off of my Tivo unit and place them on a backup drive in case I suffer a hard drive failure? I love working with the Tivo units but the worst part is getting a great collection of movies/shows and losing them after a year or so do the hd going down. Thanks.

Better to pull them off with mfs_ftp as .tmf files -- insertion, IMO, works better with .tmf than with .ty.

After a third "disruption" in as many months causing me to start from scratch and loe all my (wife's) shows, I'm wondering if there is an easy way to automated .tmf dumps at regular backup intervals... is there a TWP module that allows this? Or a PC-side client that could ftp in and grab non-duplicate events?
