Jeez! I take a 4-year break and everybody quits on me. :)
No, you may not 'see' it. BUT, I've expressly stated several times on this board that there NOT be 200 different 'superpatch's' floating around this board. That is the sole reason for my successful...
I have been unable to be around as much as I like. I do see the pain level related to using diffs to update the patch.
Let me give this modular idea some thought over the...
This is the thread for superpatch support. NOT, the thread for recommendations or other discussion. It has already been diluted enough with off-topic discussions.
If you had read the release...
Script updated and posted. Thanks for the info.
Yes, I have a thought. Since this isn't a superpatch support issue why don't you stop asking questions here and start a new thread in the newbie forum. Read the first page again.
I hate diluting a great thread, mods feel free to delete if you want... but
Thank you! It's the notion that someone will USE the information when I have time to spell it out. I like to do that...
Please remove your file. Thanks.
You've done pretty good but you're asking quite a bit. Any small error may make your ability to telnet inop.
Since you're following a guide, that I didn't assist in writing no matter what the...
Thank you. I've been having some personal issues that prevented me from staying up on current events.
I'll update the patch after we port the 7.2.2 version.
Maybe I'm an i d i o t but this command looks ok if you had the drive as secondary master.
And all of a sudden now you're mounting the primary master partition 4 to /mnt/tivoroot. You didn't...
Aaww, come on. You 'wrote' a guide. You should be able to figure it out.
PS. I'd look here
Please don't repost my script.
I'll edit the release notes. You may post diff instructions as developments happen if necessary.
I've been away from home and returned to severe family issues...
WHY is this here? Why is it being answered here?
EDIT - No Problem.
heh. I'm working as fast as I can. These dang developers are speed freaks :)
Anyway, I have a working setup. I'm trying to bulletproof the script after adding ffmpeg/tymplex...
Seems that I, and most, want avi builds, so , I might try to script it. Having to modify the 'build.script' due to the enhancements (no libxml, etc. required in the release) anyway.
I'm having to...
A new superpatch-67all is released. This file covers 7.2.0-* and 6.1 tivoapps.
Thanks to '7.1' and 'jkozee' for their work.
Yeah, I knew it supported semaphores just was going down the wrong road trying to compare the sem.h files with yours without doing my own research (got sidetracked putting an updated superpatch out...
FWIW, I'm no longer able to build the cvs on Cygwin (0.2.1 builds fine.) It appears that the addition of semaphore 'locking' gives me errors on sem.h while building Utils.o.
I have checked...
I know I need to update the script, but, I've already updated the release to check/adapt for steps #3 and #4 as linked above so you don't need them.
What's a PTV100?
mfsrestore -s 127 -xzpi /mnt/dos/tivo.bak /dev/hdc
You can expand in the same step.
This may not be a TiVo OS 'Series 2 Support' related issue...
Please post in the 'Newbie' forum.
Have a great time! We all need some ME/family time. I just got back from some of mine. Enjoy, TTL.
'NutKase' is my name for myself :), I'm just trying to fool people!
I thought you might correct me, PlainBill, but I think you mean Step#3.
Okay, since you posted in the right forum, I'll answer.
When you leave (alot) of minor details out, I/others have to ask/respond to fill in the 'minor' details.
That said, I'm sure others will...
Contact p t v upgrade or post in their support form for help.
I can't answer your questions but I can tell you that I allowed my -140 hardware to upgrade to 7.2.0-oth-01-2-140 and had random lockups, frozen screen, twice within a couple days. Also, I have not...
If you have a SA S2, you'll need killinitrd for non-RID tivos or killhdinitrd for RID tivos.
Search for your model I don't care or have the brain cells to remember them all.
Excellent response! If you want to 'hack it yourself' you'll likely get much help from others... I volunteer too, and will be looking for your adventures :).
Your post isn't developing anything nor is it helping to develop anything. Therefore it doesn't belong in this forum. Read the stickies in the newbie forum for more info. Start with the first...
But, of course, you have a lossy analog recording that you've burned to digital DVD. You said it yourself :).
This isn't acceptable to most. You can record even the most crappy video to a...
Since I have kids and understand doing anything you can to make them smile, I think I'll waste some time of my own.
I thnk I have a copy of the 'TiVo Guy' animation, if I can find it, and I'll...
The humor here demonstrates much of what I think is best about this forum :)! Have Fun.
...just in case you missed it!
I believe that there are methods to get the video unscrambled and extracted, but, I haven't used them as I've never had video that I cared that much about.
Anyway, some good info is located here...
WOW! I knew that... that just goes to show you that you shouldn't 'tivo hack' after almost getting your 4-wheeler stuck in a wild [state omitted] river, while fishing for coho (silver) salmon with...
[EDITED] Due to tiredness and stupidity...
I'd never support TCF with the post.
True. Nice to know you understood my context :).
Sorry, barrier was the wrong word. I see your point. Post edited.
Duplicate... delete pls.
This is the 'killer app' IMO!
If you've just installed Cygwin, and didn't select 'install' for the DEVELOPMENT section..., just run the installer again. Then run my script and you should be good...
If you're a new user and have never tried to build 'tivoserver'... You will have no problems with any of the 'libxml' build problems darrin75 mentions.
All you need to do is... install Cygwin...
The released script downloads the newest version of tivoserver, REAL TIME, during the build.
Well, for instance, and at the risk of the sewer...
Let's say that a totally law abiding tivo hacker missed a 'Survivor' episode that was 'critical' to his family... :)
He'd get it via torrent,...
Ok, I've tested build.tivoserver-0.s.sh on a new install of Cygwin using the default install and only adding the Development tools.
It works fine for me on XP.
I'm still unsure of what...
I've removed the build.tivserver-0.2.sh script for further troubleshooting. It seems that I haven't thought of ALL the possible permutations of end users' Cygwin installs :).
You can always...
It looks like your libxml build failed the first time. Comment out lines:
It appears that you don't have ftp installed... BUT you say it works fine from bash. Hmmm, I don't know and have no ideas. Let me know when you figure it out and I'll update the script or it's...
Where's the source?
Are we your marketing target?
Does it work with hacked and unscrambled tivos? If not who needs it?
Dude! Don't hack your tivo in the first year of marriage!
If I remember MY first year... hacking your tivo will take much time that could better be spent enjoying 'other' endeavours.
The released version of tivoserver added a 'configure' script which broke my script because it looked for 'make'.
I've released build.tivoserver-0.2.sh which fixes this issue and adds a few other...
It compiles and runs fine on Cygwin. I've updated and posted the build.tivoserver script in the files section.
.TY support checks good also.
It sure does. Just wanted to point out for the $$$ challenged (OP) or the terrain challenged (me - with mountains in the way in the 'Great White North') that the SA's also free you from the tyranny...
I have some further advice.
Research the posters that respond to your situation. Give more weight to those that have helped others and less to those who've demonstrated that they don't actually...
Yep, the beauty is that ANY 'tivo' does this. :)
A. Decide you want to have fun and learn something new.
B. Search and read this forum.
C. Take notes, try to make it make sense. Note how about 60% (my estimate) of the threads are...
Roger! Safety is the best policy... didn't know the exact nature. :)
Why don't we keep things in the open to help others as well as ourselves. :)
Try the p t v upgrade forum.
Sorry. You should've read this first.
Testing updated script now.
Got sidetracked playing with tivoserver since I got back home ;).
I'd say it was port speed (baud) settings.
Why don't you use 115200 in the bootpage? That's the defaults with TeraTerm. I guess you could change the TeraTerm settings to slow it down to 57600...
Download and run build.tivoserver-0.1.sh again. I've made the following improvements:
For Cygwin users:
Builds without 'debugging=on'. This will ensure that the program...
Just for info...easy way #1:
Find the PID with 'ps aux' then 'kill -9 PID'
Base? Did someone say base? :)
...you did it again.
Didn't care who's it was... just couldn't read it. Can you use the code formatting suggested above to help differentiate your comments?
I don't know if your post above is confusing anyone but me but, I can't tell if that's your code or if you got it from somewhere (and where). Also, I can't tell if the comments are meant for the...
I'm not sure what you're asking here but, I have a 1GB thumb drive hooked into my laptop as F:.
I can start tivoserver like this:
and it works fine. ...
There's one topic, one member, and one post on that (your?) site.
Why the circle j e r k? You (or someone) copied the guide from the dude at tivocommunity and then gave the address to the...
JustBill... err, I mean PlainBill, thanks for charitably ignoring mine too :).
...meant in total good humor.
I said I didn't want to offend anyone. I didn't imply that anyone received compensation from p t v upgrade. The OP was talking about the non-enhanced cd. If the cd was just a bunch of kernels that...
If you can 'install killhdinitrd' manually, then you can avoid being a customer of p t v upgrade. Some point folks to an easy download, from p t v upgrade (p t v upgrade's just sucking/getting their...
Search for 'TPM Sucks', Tivo Package Manager was an attempt at a proprietary RPM-like package manager that failed. I don't really know anyone using it... or, at least, I hope not.
No, that's what I want here. I'll add a check for 'cvs' to the script. I'm adding a manual ftp/install of wget also.
My guess is that you have or had a copy of tivoserver.tgz in your build directory and my script didn't download the latest tivoserver CVS.
The Makefile was patched by my original patch when you...
I need the entire output from the script build to know why libtar didn't build properly.
I didn't know it would slow it down that much and wanted to see all the output...
I'll change it.
[EDIT]Improved script posted. Just redownload build.tivoserver-0.1.sh
Let's not have this become a 'guide's suck' discussion. That's just my opinion.
Like I said, there's not a 'correct' command that I can give you without knowing exactly where you are in your...
You don't need to 'monte' your S2 running 7.1x. You don't need a password to 'monitor the messages'.
You need to spend some time reading...
No, I don't have time, right now, to provide you...
Can you give me more information? How did it 'fail'? Error messages? Try it again, after deleting any tivoserver directories that you have from the manual install. Tivomaster had no issues......
Here's a dev thread for using Cygwin to compile/program/xcompile apps for use on the tivo.
Why does anyone use Cygwin and not install a standard linux distribution? Well, in my case it's...
No. tivoserver requires: libxml2, libtar, and a tar.h which isn't part of Cygwin.
I got lazy and installed everything when I did my xcompiler but why don't you try just the default with the...
Here are some excerpts from the stupid guide.
(guides suck. Didn't you read the stickies in the Newbie Forum?)
10 FTP key files over to the HR10-250

This has already been covered.

Desire is half the battle.
If you do it right he'll love you forever. :)
Start with the stickies. After reading them, ask questions that show you're trying and you'll get a lot of help....
Yeah, post #5 is the changes I made to the various files.
You also need to copy tar.h into /usr/include and you must compile/install libtar and libxml2 before tivoserver.
I'm testing a script...
No, you were right on. ...just didn't actually say 'hack your tivo.'
Which means, you must hack (gain control of) your tivo.
Your friend is wrong.
Oh, and thanks for caring enough to post in the right forum... not a lot of people do that lately. :)
BUT, I did post the full directions on what to change to compile one.
Keep in mind that you'll need the CVS release if you don't want to manually put the corrected Enums.hh and...
If users have already built a mips crosscompiler they'll already have tar.h in /TivoGCC.
No, I don't think a binary is the way to go but, it's your project.
What I'm doing is writing a...
No Turbonet is required. You'll need to hack your tivo. USB will work after you hack and install the drivers/setup for it.
You can buy a prebuilt drive. No, I won't say where because I'm...
As my title states, maybe this forum wouldn't be a newbie magnet if the name were changed. The description should probably be updated to:
If your tivo won't boot at all, has bad tuners, or any...
I've finally compiled the tivoserver binary on Cygwin. I haven't tested it yet since I'm traveling and away from my tivos.
For those new to .patch output, the - is the original line, and the +...
So, if you're smart enough to recognize that this doesn't belong in this forum without even editing... then why didn't you post in the right one?
The 4.x kernels != to the 6.x and 7.x kernels. ...
Okay, using your latest updated tivoserver source, here's what I've done:
1. Replaced the Enums.hh and TvStructs.hh with the ones you posted and removed the TvStructs-62.hh.
2. Got the tar.h...
I purposefully omitted that I, the pretty-smart computer geek, went without various lights in two rooms, for more than six months, in my new 'used' house before I gave up and called...
I agree with your friend.
I've been reading and thinking about prom modding for a while.
What gets me is that people think that it should cost about $30-$50.
I paid an electrician $155,...
Congratulations on quickly finding the best place to post this question.
...I might be interested in your tivos.
You've already started 3 new threads with your first three posts and have been given help in 2 of them, Here and here.
Now you just have to start reading.
Ok, if pico is opening it fine and you're typing absolute paths then you've convinced me.
I vote with Jamie on buffer cache or hd problems. What does you serial output say? How about kernel or...
If you don't want to take the advice you're given, why ask? At least try it.
As was said, no one can find your error without an exact cut/paste of what you're typing - no guess work or off the...
Not true at all.
This somehow belongs in the Series 2 Support Forum?
Did you do a 'clear and delete all' on TIVO2 after hacking it with the backup from TIVO1? If not, you might try that.
You're a lazy bastard.
Why are you crossposting in the Series 2 Support forum? Now some mod has to waste their valuable time deleting your duplicate post. Don't you think we'd benefit from them having more time to...
No idea, I've never used one. (Can you get that I won't recommend anything in that area now :)?)
Nobody's a 'great one', it's just that some are: more dedicated, or started earlier, or,...
Aw, heck... I didn't really mean to be confrontational, just anti-p t v upgrade.
Instantcake should do you fine. As far as I know it's just a stock image that you can recover from a crash...
Well, some may mention it, but I don't.
Then I regret that you didn't.

Well, you need to ask the folks that sold you the cd.
p t v upgrade has a forum and a website. You should ask all your questions about their products there.
Please email Lou at p t v upgrade...
Good. You'll have fun and be very satisfied as the light comes on.
It's not a no-no. We're just not paid to be the support you need to get you from where they left you to where you want to...
No wound, I'm human.
Yeah, but a quick read, didn't catch it.
Yep, I've already 'groveled' and said I should've read closer...
What more do you want? :) (Just kidding, of course.)
The problem here is that you've paid for p t v to hack your tivo.
You have no idea what exactly you have as far as hacking goes.
You expect us to learn what p t v has done to your tivo. (I...
Nope, you're right on AlphaWolf. I was just pointing out that since he mentioned this:
I figure he had it out and in his PC and had a bad bootdisk or bootdisk parameters... I've never heard...
Your serial output should have been much more than that. If you don't know what's going on, at least post the full ouput for us to look at.
Reseat your IDE cable or try a new one and just reboot....
Well, for one thing... your boot cd is byte-swapping (search=byteswap) and your tivo drive doesn't need to be byteswapped.
Good post. The color is horrible.
chmod makes the file executable (sets permissions), the 'echo' line is setting up for recording unscrambled.
We'll continue this in the newbie thread if you...

The problem is that you've used a 'do it for me' solution when you purchased the p t v upgrade products....

The matter of hacking your tivo is not relevant.
When you figure out what the p t v upgrade products...
