View Full Version : Playboy Channel

02-08-2002, 10:15 PM

I appreciate any help I can get here.

I am not running emu.... but a subbed bin. Phillips 6000 receiver.

1) When I go to record something on an "upcomming" Playboy channel, (595) it does not give me the option to "purchase"...only record. When it came to record it...it then asked if I wanted to purchase. Can this be fixed?

2) Since I swiched to this unit I no longer get my SF channels (2-66) any ideas why? I Got them on my RCA before...no poblem.

3) I cannot get transponder to stay at "20" for best reception. It continues to default at "6".

Thank you in advance......

Actually, this happens with all the porn channels (594-598)
(PPV's work fine)...what's up?

Thank you again

Well I am still having the problem with the porn channels. I found a file that has SF, Sac, LA and SD Locals. I installed it using MVChannels however it continued to loop in HYper Terminal so I just "quit". The channels ARE there BUT I cannot seem to get rid of SAC, LA, and SD in my receiver. I only want (and can receive) SF. I tried to "uncheck" them in TIVO Channels prefs...but they are still there in guide! Any Ideas?

Also my unit appears to be stuck in DEMO mode. I have found a file called DEMOFIX but have not a clue what to do with it...

Any help out there would be greatly appreciated.

If you do reply I am afraid I will need a step by step also....Still learning.

Thank you!

The easiest way would be to go into the preferences and delete those channels you don't receive. Also make sure the guide is not set for view all channels no filter. Otherwise all of the unchecking will be in vain

How To setup FIXDEMO
1. Unzip the file.
2. Edit with a Unix happy editor, I use TextPad, to change sleep time. (Reports say that 1800 is working the best)
3. Transfer to /var/hack
4. Execute: chmod 755 /var/hack/fixdemo.tcl
5. Edit rc.sysinit and add the following line right before the bash call:

/var/hack/fixdemo.tcl > /dev/null &

6. Reboot

Did anyone find an answer to the adult PPV problem of recording in advance?

Not to my knowledge krstofer.
My "guess" is that most people here are "emulating" and the channels are all wide open so they do not have this problem. I am running off of a cloned Platinum sub...no scripts what so ever....so it "should" behave like I am a normal customer....
never the less I am still unable to record porn channels "in advance"...

I am still looking for help on this.....certainly someone out there has the answer and understands the importance of this ; )

I may have a solution. I will test tonight. If it works, I'll post it.

Thanks guys. I will be checking back for the outcome. I can't even figure out how to subscribe to pbtv!

I have had a few things to do in the past coup[le of days. Anyway,
I think I have found a solution. I haven't checked today to see if it still running. Here's what i did:

Edited (joe) noppv.tcl and changed the timezone to my timezone.
Then, I edited mvchannels.tcl and inserted:
exec/var/hack/noppv.tcl as the very last line of mvchannels. Make sure you chmod+ x noppv.tcl. This was working last night. I am still at work and can't check it again until later tonight.

I guess I need to start hacking my TiVo. I need to read up and find out how to do some of this stuff. :)

Can't wait to see the outcome.

This is for you.
Ok this is the easy install i found to do
you will need a floppy disk
download the file 900s.tcl
place the tivo drive on hdx?
i load xtreme 2.5 cd
hit enter at the boot :
hit enter again at the next step :
it will have a /# there do the following steps. :)
mkdir /mnt/tivodrive
mkdir /mnt/tivodrivevar
mkdir /mnt/dosfloppy
mount /dev/hdx? /mnt/tivodrive
mount /dev/hdx? /mnt/tivodrivevar
mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt/dosfloppy
ok this is step one next do this
cd /mnt/dosfloppy
edit 900s.tcl [ edit the file to what settings make you fell happy ] save and exit
cp 900s.tcl /mnt/tivodrivevar/bin
cd mnt/tivodrivevar/bin
chmod +x 900s.tcl
next do this
go to the /etc/rc.d directory and edit rc.sysinit file go to the bottom of the file and type in "/bin/900s.tcl > /dev/null &"
this worked on all ppv and prono channels i'm running a 3m :) i hope this helps
i see all 900's and 13-69 in my channel listing :)

{ if there are any typo's sorry }

Do you have access to bash?

If so, the noppv script worked for me.
