    I'de say amen to that. I started having that issue on my 4.01b SD-DVR40 box this week out of the blue. This also seems to have sped up the drawing up of the Now Showing menu by quite a lot. Kinda...

    Yeap, all your questions have answers here. Just sit down and read a bit. One bit of advice though, it would probably be best to connect a usb to ethernet device and the Tivo and then an 802.11g...

    Jamie,

    Your a genious. I have had my Tivo hacked for a few months now and when I originally created the 4.01 image of my SD-DVR40, I made a backup following Hinsdale guide using the -f 9999...

    I doubt he has two drives. He would have needed to build a bracket for the thing. The Hughes SD-DVR40 and SD-DVR80 are single drive units. Also sounds as if he is not using a kernal that is...

    tx413,

    Thanks, that would be great. I have been kind of busy myself. I recently went from TivoWebPlus 1.0 to 1.1 and had to redo my edits I had made to most of my modules including ui.itcl...

    Do you know if you will be able to get this going on the next update? It would make fast forwarding through commercials so much easier. :D

    The easiest method to do unscramble is to use superpatch by NutKase. This will do the unscramble for you. You will have to go back to an un-modified tivoapp and let superpatch do the rest. Go here...

    Well, Just a silly question, but did also make sure that you patched the Tivo so that it records shows unscrambled? I am assuming it would be a problem if you have not. If you havn't, there are a...

    I don't think the HDVR2 is a Highdef unit. It is a Non-RID S2 Hughes unit which was produced before the SD-DVR40 and SD-DVR80 models which are S2 RID units. What is interesting though is that when...

    Actually just found out that superpatch-4all-NutKase-0.7.1 by NutKase fixes the very same thing. If you have that applied, there is no need for the vwait.itcl fix method since that patches tivoapp. ...

    Don't know the answer to that myself, but if your keen on geting your TiVo on 802.11g, you can always do what I did and stick a USB 10/100 ethernet adapter and plug it into an 802.11g gaming adapter...
