    FAQ / Stickies

    Do you think maybe it's time for a Sticky or 2 for this Forum? I'm thinking like a "Video Extraction" Sticky that of course would currently say there is no way of extracting video from the HR20 but...

    Max IDE Drive Size for 6.2 / RCA DVR40

    dd, tar, gzip broken on ALL Boot CDs???

    I know my way around Unix. I got the GSoD in March and have been suffering with my unhacked 40GB "Precious" original ever since. I want to recover my streams but it's a 3.1.1c DTiVo (encryption...
  22. Yes, this is the solution for all future people w/ same ouch

    1) Go to where your web server is located (typically /usr/tivoweb-tcl or /var/local/tivoweb-tcl)
    2) vi tivoweb *
    3) Change the line beginning with TIVOSH_POOLSIZE (it should be the second line) to...
  23. Another tack

    This thread seems to be related to my problem. Now, if I can just restart TWP without rebooting, I bet 3.2 MB mem pool rather than 2.9 MB may JUST be what the doctor ordered. He does seem to have...
  24. Thanks again, but still no dice

    Thanks Eastwind,

    I did as the directions specified -- though actually I needed to do a bit more because the type was not correct and the new hda4 needs to have a proper ext2fs to mount else...
  25. Linux -- I love it!

    Ah! Thanks for the advice. The problem is, I have a blessed 2-drive system totaling ~274GB. When I hacked my DTivo, I first transferred from the OEM 40GB drive to the 2 160GB's I have now. I then...
  26. Also, swap / var size

    And BTW, I set up my TiVo with a manual partition 7 (root fs), partition 8 (swap) and 9 (var) and becuase root was originally too small for sleeper. I kept var at 128 MB but made root 160 MB, taking...
  27. More info -- please help again if possible

    Thanks again for all your help and reminders!

    Ironically, I've done a bit of TCL/TK programming before and probably could fix a problem myself if it would just report a valid line number. But...

    I know that tivosh dying causes the reboot, I just want to know if there is a way to preferably stop TWP from crashing or alternatively just stopping TWP from crashing tivosh and thus tivo.

  29. Oops, forgot TWP has a log

    Thanks for the help, sorry about the sometimes, it's always rebooting when I click on a link, typically clicking on a show title in my nowPlaying list. Last time I clicked on a show and it came up...
  30. tivoweb & tivowebplus keep rebooting my dtivo

    Sometime, when I click on a link under TivoWeb or TivoWebPlus -- they both are so capricious, the tivo decides to reboot, killing any recordings it may be making.

    VServer gone from tivo-mplayer page

  32. No bash, telnet, ftp or ping

    So, I now have a hacked DTiVo -- or at least theoretically because I have no way of verifying it (well, the PROM isn't overwriting the secondary partition so obviously monte DID do something) since...
  33. Regrets

    I will say this, the loss of my 320 hours of streams was lamentable and it might have been avoided if I wasn't so negligent and:

    A) The ISO's main menu had a not-so-friendly reminder in all CAPS...
  34. Is it possible to recover from the "OH, so I WASN'T supposed to run PROM" error?"

    Thanks. Next time I run sleeper I will try this. Didn't realize the Sleeper kernel was supporting virtual terminals! Just hope it has the right SCSI modules loaded but I can check that with dmesg...
  35. SCSI Support

    I am an old hat at Linux, first compiled the kernel in 1993, 0.998x or there abouts. Anyway, given the power of linux I know there is a general obsession in the computer industry with ATAPI CDROM...
