View Full Version : Directtivo reboots

12-09-2006, 10:45 AM
I need some help here. i have been scanning this forum for days trying to get some info on unscrambling recordings so i can download to my PC using TyTool and watch/record them. I applied a patch and was able to get the recordings to download and multiplex correctly but now when I watch them on the Tivo itself, the box reboots. I have a Directvio series 2 running 6.2-01-2-151. It has been upgraded/networked with a pre-configured drive from PTVupgrade. Here is what I did:
• cp /tvbin/tivoapp /tvbin/tivoapp.orig
• cd /tvbin
• mv tivoapp tivoapp.tmp
• cp tivoapp.tmp tivoapp
• chmod 755 tivoapp
• echo -ne "\x3C\x02\x00\x00" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=1602412
• echo -ne "\x10\x40\x00\x2b" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=6713220
• echo -ne "\x24\x10\x00\x01" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=2804900
• rootread
• reboot

Then I read this had to be done as well:
• echo -ne "\x3C\x02\x00\x00" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=10705308

I am pretty computer savvy but not the best in Unix. Any ideas where i went wrong or what i can do to fix the problem??
Also Superepatch67 has been applied

I'd say your borked your tivoapp. All you needed was the superpatch which has the patches for 6.2. All of those echo statements are redundant including this 'echo -ne "\x3C\x02\x00\x00"' which you applied in two different places. Restore a stock tivoapp, apply the superpatch and you should be good to go. As far as unscrambling shows previously recorded while encrypted, as you've guessed, you need to setup a monte to an S2_unscramble kernel (good keywords to search on) and go from there...

I copied tivoapp.orig back to tivoapp and all is well again. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction....peace
