Just installed 25xtreme and I can't get bash. I have a tivo serial cable with a null modem adapter with a gender bender. All I get on the screen is garbage. Tried rebooted tivo and hitting enter and nothing samething. You should be able to get bash at anytime also right?....Thanks for any help.

Things to check:

1) Baud rate and settings, should be 9600 baud, 8/N/1.
2) Handshaking, should turn off hardware handshaking.
3) Emulation, VT-100 works fine, but must be set to 25 lines for JOE to display properly.

Can also try blindly typing stty sane and see if it fixes display.
