View Full Version : misc. questions - an s3 'df' and ftp deletion ?

03-27-2008, 12:23 PM

I have a new chipped/hacked s3 tivo.

All is well, but I have two minor questions ...

1. Is there a way to see how much space is free on the drive, from a command line standpoint ? (that I could then suck into a script ?)

Basically I am looking for a way to, at least approximate, the 'df' command ... doesn't need to be perfectly exact, I just want some rough idea of how much of my usable space is currently used/free.

2. After downloading shows via mfs_ftp, I would like to delete them as well - but not by hand. If I delete the .tmf file (with 'rm' or 'del' in ftp) will that confuse the tivo, or does that cleanly delete the show and all meta-data, etc., so that when I go into the UI I don't see the show anymore, and the tivo is not confused ?

Is there any danger in 'rm' from mfs_ftp ?

'df' will show the space used/remaining in the root fs, not mfs, where the recordings are stored. Look thru info.itcl from the tivowebplus package for some clues on determining free space in mfs. You can delete recordings via mfs_ftp just fine, I do it all the time.

ok, and you simply delete the .tmf file and nothing more ?
