I must be getting old, I missed ALL of that..
It is nice to see the community alive and well.
I used to upgrade, replace, backup, restore, change over and basically have my way with my Tivos, but it's been a few years and I am...
I believe the network setup is the last step
so yes, the entire guide must be completed.
unless you know what you are doing, then whenever you use a guide, a help file, or someone else's...
Used my Knoppix CD
used Dellanave's guide and followed all steps exactly and wham!
everything I wanted!
very cool, now just have to try and find the noscramble stuff and I am all set....
did you follow the directions exactly? It should already be on your dtivo.
so "uploading" is not needed.
It sounds like your "customizing" your use of the dellanave guide, meaning you haven't...
Just wanted everyone who is new to be aware of my opinion of PTVUpgrade.com
In my opinion, it is best to tackle upgrading yourself and stay away from websites, these guys (or specifically, this...
I take that as a YES ?
I will try that (I already have it) as my boot cd.
I can't believe I missed that!
I must have THOUGHT I read it.
Oh well, thanks!!
One more question.. I am 99% sure already but the PTV Boot CD mentioned for what I need can be substituted...
I must have missed that one.
I am on the newbie forum! Gasp!
I should be ashamed of myself.. I can't hold anything in my brain anymore.. it goes in and leaks out over a few months time.... :eek:
Who would've thunk...
do you have a good Xbox motherboard lying around? (1.1 or 1.2)
I have the turbonet cards (2)
$25 Bucks each.
You said make an offer.. that's all I got.
Got some tradeables I suppose if interested.
No offense meant to you, but it is clearly not a step by step from "start" to "finish".
It is a sectional guide. Take what you need, ignore the rest.
As far as the video extraction, I have...
I haven't worked in "DOS" for a while.. but
hasn't there always been a space between the command and the switch?
cd/ doesn't work on any system.
So it would be the same.. you just didn't...
Try my guide.. has a good section on Joe and the commands you need to know
Not sure why it ins't working for you, but you should use TivoWeb for this
It is a great way to do it (until you get a fix)
Also, you extracted 70 shows?
All at once? :eek: Wow, you either...
I am not familiar with 4.0 stuff but I do not believe /cdrive/tivo/variables would have anything to do with your telnet access.
That is just a command to remove a "variables" directory from the...
I do not believe this is a "sleeper" issue.
It is a bios issue, or a "bad drive" issue.
My DVD Drive is not recognized by anything but Windows XP in my homebrew system, I cannot run ANY Linux,...
You mind if I add this to my newbie guide some time in the future?
Hey Capt.. do you live on this board? :eek:
That problem above was a funny one since day one, some people see that right away.. some do not and it drives them crazy.
Kind of like some of the...
Glad to hear it worked out for you.
Simple wasn't it?
You're quite welcome. :)
This I know all to well. A push in the RIGHT direction is much better than wading through the jungle with a pocket knife.
Probably, but not too soon as I...
Try my tutorial
Has info on elseed. [CallerID]
Sorry, I do not have 4.0 so I cannot test it, maybe one of the guru's here can answer.
This is an update to a previous thread here on changing menu headers.
Thanks go to CarloCC, he pointed me in the right direction and then I just tested a bunch of stuff to get it to work for my...
seems to be, thanks Juppers.
Thats what I was looking for.
Very strange happenings tonight.
After rebooting several times and nothing working, I figured it was a fubar unit so I started messing with renaming...
The North Easy got hit today by constant Thunderstorms and I believe a Bolt hit my dish.
I just purchased 2 RCA DVR40's last week and hacked em up.
Went through the ridiculously long process of...
I have several TiVo's and I am need of identifying which is which quickly.
I would like to change the Now Showing or Tivo Central Text to
"Tivo Main" and "Tivo Secondary" or something similar.
I didn't mean this to get all inflamatory and I usually do not make it a habit to single someone out or "flame" them.
Certainly wasn't the intent here.
Just for the record..
I don't see...
I do not agree, but doesn't matter..
Sure sounded like it to me, no specific offense meant, but I am truly sick of the general attitude that everyone must learn like "I" did.
Ok give me a few days and I'll post a combined version here and on my Site and we'll credit whomever needs crediting.
Damn good roadmap if I do say so...
Should be really good as one document.
never mind I saw the link, with your permission, I will open that and extract what is missing in mine, combine them and repost.
Ok ya know what.. every thing you say from now on is HOOEY! :D
If someone asked you "what time is it?" .. would you say "It's all on the wrist" ?
Maybe because it took you a long time...
OK, see,... this is what I do not understand..
why make the guy do a search? He asked a legitimate question, said he read the forums (although obviously in the wrong places..)
Why not just give...
As far as I know, Joe is broken in sleepers. I do not know exactly where, but this has been addressed and a fix is out I believe (other than instaling it yourself)
Also, you are getting things...
I have updated my Newbie guide which was very popular (by looking at the download count), and I have secured space again. So now I have the old and new guides combined to give everyone access in...
New updated link to my Newbie guide
New stuff, step by step for the basics... and it includes the original as well.
What do you mean, you can actually login while booting or that you get "info" on the telnet screen? Do you get a bash prompt?
Just a FYI
I have seen some of the threads about some things not working as they should...and I have had this error myself.
with respect to those who are not experts, one of the most common...
Ha! That was the first thing I tried.. very nice. I also have the 30 sec skip.. No need to enter codes as it is built in.
(my family freaked the first time it rebooted and did the sendkey thing,...
of course I don't mind.. I was just joshing above.
I am glad someone took it and reported.
And I knew it was you, that why it is no problem.
I only wish I could give back more than I take
Isn't it against the rules to discuss receiver swapping?
That is theft after all.
That's clearly what is happening here.
DTV has a tight enough A@@ already, don't cha think?
I only get
bash: ./moviesort.tcl: No such file or directory
when I try to run it.
Not sure if I did something wrong or not.
I haven't had a chance to read ALL of the posts on the forum on this subject, but I have seen some. ("cat out of the bag" was interesting.)
I am just curious if it is possible to put...
I have been out of the scene for a while, it seems like I only have time to come back when my box goes kablam!
Anyway, this is a shout out to all the guys who contribute.
Figures you would be the one to respond.. you have helped me when I needed it most (Isn't that a song??)
anyway, I figured that but wanted it confirmed.
I will try a C&DE and post...
I am not really a newbie, but I haven't visited or given my Dtivo a second thought in a few years..
Now I have a "new" DTivo, it was a neighbors (down the street)
He had a bad hard...
Thanks Captain, but I am already at 3.1 and for now I am just looking to install the new tivoweb and use the backup module to backup my season passes etc..(extraction later)
I know how to start...
Hey guys.. been out of the scene for a while.
Looks like a lot of progress has been made.
I am curious if anyone can offer some advice.
I have a Dtivo that is fully legit, updated to 3.1 via...
there tools are great! well worth any wait!
I am curious about something.
I can edit and just drop my mpegs onto a dvd and play in my apex, but I wat to do more.. (I have...
so whats the difference between the two?
If it can use the net to contact Tivo, and it can only contact DTV through the phone.. then there must be two calls.. no?
Also, what is in Xtreme that...
Last night I was so frustrated that I just reimaged, set up the network and let the tivo call home via net.. all SEEMED ok.
But, if I use the net to call in, is it the same as the phone line?
I did check that link, I got dead air...
thats why I asked..
I am not THAT new.
(i just checked it again and go figure.. it worked THANKS!)
I also know the difference between dos...
I know you guys are trying to help.. so dont take this the wrong way...
But I said
I tried to make the call with extreme on it and NO changes.. just a virgin Extreme image and it said...
Thanks for the reply,
but that doesnt work
I tried a test call before I modded anything (right after extreme upgrade)
and it said successful without trying.
I have to have my DTivo call in (don't ask)
I do not have an original image of the DSR6000
so I used Extreme.
I replaced the TClient-lib.itcl with an "original" from this board.
well thats kinda what I was askin.
How do I reset the nag?
Is that really the only way?
that would suck.
I need to know this is a HURRY.
I need to remove all instances of anything that might be considered a "problem" for me.
My DTivo HAS to call in next week. (don't ask why)
hey, were all feeling the same....
will there be wrapped (zipped) software under my christmas tree??
Will I be able to dump all the useless crap off my tivo that I have been convincing myself is...
man, I'm sorry guys.. but I just HAVE to...

Sorry for going off topic.
It won't happen again. I am not usually one to branch off.
I just get tired of the same thing being asked over and over when the answer is clearly in this (and other)...
Sometimes I just think people can't read.
There is a way to created a video from a ty stream and cut out the commercials. It is not 100% perfect, but it works.
It will have to do until...
I had to redo my DTivo for the umpteenth time yesterday..

Yes, a great solution if you happen to be one of the minority 4.5% of computer users who use a Mac.
Whats with the posts about being surprised you can "write to dvd" ?
And whats with the "upsample" extra steps ?

IMHO I think you should keep your source closed.
We all know very well that the minute you release your source under the guise of "open source" it will be stolen and incorporated into...
Just my 2 cents...

If you are using a "test" card and your phone line is plugged in, regardless of if you pay or not.. you can be assured DTV knows about it.. (not actively of course.....

Pretty freakin impressive if I must say.
I'll need to purchase a bottle of Advil in order to digest all that.

I am willing to try anything..

I always read your posts with great interest.

Usenet is tough for beginners
I just opened a M2V file extracted with TyTool 5
It plays just fine..
except for audio.
Is anyone familiar with Real Player and its ability to play these files?
Can it play audio as well?...
I dont know how to explain it.
I get 30 and no better.
I am using XP w/ IE6

I have tried and tried to disbable DHCP with this "upgrade"
I have put:

"I am not an electrician, but I play one on TiVo..."
Help! After all the cool stuff I have put on my Tivo, I am seriously worried that it'll get shut down in the next upgrade.
Apex 1500 works great, and I mean GREAT
99.99 at Kmart or 79.99 at amazon.com
Apex 1100 did NOT work
Toshiba SD2200 did NOT work
my 3 cents...
thanks for all the tools and hard work.
I have installed so many things, I have lost track.
Can someone enlighten me on samba?
I have :

GREAT addition to the community!
But.. and she's got a BIG BUTT,
I am getting 30.6k at best.
jdiners tytool is seriously faster
Ok, so with all the great minds on this forum, and with all the awesome tools put out..
We can all extract and make DVD's from a Dtivo.
What is lacking here?
A Tool or method to directly...
why go through the mpg process??
Spruce Up will import (and crash) at a patched .m2v file
Then just restart SpruceUp import again and go.
no need to
If you're interested...
I can fix this for you:
and some other small stuff as well.
Maybe I am not allowed to post any rules here.. and you can certainly delete this, but...
2 rules come to mind that should be followed by any board.
1. Everyone is required to read the stickys...
assume that I am a moron here...
I purchased a apex 1100w at wallyworld as well
I tried the vsplit > fake out > burn with SpruceUp..
nothing happened.. black screen.
are you saying...
Just an update:
The apex AD-1100W does NOT play a .ty dvd
Serial ending in JE05
it does play dvd-r's ripped from commercial dvd's
but alas, no .ty dvd..
at least my toshiba plays it 2/3
I came to the same conclusion...
buy a new dvd player before I break something :mad:
I have a toshiba sd-2200
It is an awesome player.. just awesome.
Now I have to give it...
does the apex AD703
play DVD-r's in general well?
I ask because I had a player that wont do the 480 tivo stream and you said the 703 will play them, but I also backup my...
Here is my result:
TivoDVD/MPEG: 2/3 - 1/3 problem
TivoSVCD/MPEG: No SVCD

TivoVCD: OK Quality Sucks
Comments: This is driving me...
I should have been more specific.. sorry.
Here is what my problem is:
I extract via tivoapp.. into a .ty stream
then use vsplit11b -V movie.ty movie.m2v movie.m2a
then it always...
I would imagine you mean (2) 120's...
goto avsforum.com and see the threads on upgrading, you'll get tons more info there about upgrading.
well I have a sync problem as well
usually its 3-5 ms off (late)
Then when I try to re-encode up to 720, it wont ever let me import the file. always an error.
I have also tried Ulead toolbox.....
That was my screenshot you saw..
I am certainly willing to design a UI for ya.. no problem.
I imagine you are doing open source here?.. cause there really is no profit in this as far...
Next time.. just read a "little" more.
There are several posts on this one already.. one started by me in fact.
Anyway, you need to edit the .profile in the root directory "cd /"
Didnt mean to offend you.
Its just not that simple for some guys.
Video Cards and Drivers can cause people problems, so if one guy puts a how to together about what works...
Do not discourage any "How To's"
They serve several purposes.
1. Less questions on the board.
2. Less SIMILAR Questions.
3. Help for someone with limited skill
4. Help for someone...

I have the same problem, and I think everyone else does as well.
Vsplit11b is the latest incarnation of correct conversion from the stream to a managable video/audio file.
ok.. well after a few more countless hours of tinkering.. I got it to work (or at least load noscramble.o at startup)
I must have had a crap version or transfered it wrong.
I will post my...

ELF file not a relocatable object
whats up with that?>
Maybe thats my problem/?
ok great.. thanks
I'll post back here later tonight with results
yes I do. It loads in rc.sysinit
Is there a way to "check" it to see if it is actually loaded?
maybe theres an error?
Vsplit gives me nothing but errors..
cant find a valid chunck in the first 10 or something like that..
crap.. I am SO close I can smell. it.
Could ya throw me a bone here?
I was all excited to see a new message in this thread.. and BAM!
All I got was explainations for not posting your rc.sysinit
(good idea, I'd prolly...
Ok, sorry that you guys have to see my name so often but...
I am running TivoApp now after many frustrating hours of tweaking.
The porblem I am having is anytime I try to extract to MPEG or...
I really want to get rid of sounds and animations..
Pretty please point me to the thread.. or "how to"
Thats what I was looking for. That helps ALOT!
The "masses" are who make things truly work.
Without us newbies, who would you guys show off to?
anyone have the answer here?
I would LOVE to get rid of the animations. (and sounds)
so I have about 40 shows on my Dtivo, and instead of starting from scratch (because some of the shows are for my son)
I can just load the noscramble record a movie.. extract the movie then...
Just a question or two about noscramble
1. Does running noscramble make scrambling turn off permanently, or is it until next boot (if not in rc.sysinit)
2. Does it make all...
I am getting different errors.
I get FSID erros.. invalid blocks.. and also I get hanging of the program (and crashing) and hanging of my system.
does anyone know what causees this stuff?
Ok.. since there are a few guys here that are 'experts' and the rest of us poor souls are basically scriptkiddies with attitude.. let me give a rundown of a How to for TivoWeb.
Its not perfect.....
Just to let all know:
I have a Dtivo and TivoCentral.mpv is Central0.mpv on my system.
% dbset /Resource/VideoClip/Central0.mpv:1838:1839:8192...
Well thanks to all of the help I recceived here today
I have successfully installed
My only problem is with TivoApp.
I can connect, and It lists the shows...
I am no expert but I know on the Dtivo you have to copy the ui.itcl to 0ui.itcl (thats a zero)
use the cp command
cp ui.itcl 0ui.itcl
that way it starts first.
ok.. so how do I fix that?
The easiest and fastest method is using extreme 2.5 for the Dtivo.
You just download the 2.5xtreme iso, burn it to cd, boot with it (and the tivo drive A) and follow the prompts.. complete...
I had the same problem.. i just used the serial on com1 to do the bigger transfers.
by the way, I got my turbonet yesterday and I am having problems...
any chance you can pm or email me the...
thank you both, that helps a TON!
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now...
(or is that just 598?)
Ok, in an effort to become less confused, I would like someone to please try to answer this for me.
When I use bash via serial, what partition am I accessing? 4, 7, or 9?
I ask because when I...
Ok Now I am completely confused.
I tried the other cable and it worked.. I installed Tivoweb and it said
then all of a sudden I couldnt even ping.
I copied ...
I have read mostly everything I can find.
I got Turbonet installed and working (I can ping the Dtivo)
I installed Tivoweb per instructions and renamed ui to 0ui
I started tivoweb by...
Man do I feel like an ASS.
I just got so frustrated that I changed all the equipment, cleaned out my entertainment center, and hooked up my OTHER Dtivo with the TurboNet card...
Well That one...
I couldnt find traceroute at sonnik.
Heres a little more info on my situation, perhaps you can find a screwup for me:

things sure got interesting after being away for a week or two.
GEEZE! Someone gonna release a prog that'll do the extraction for us?
Thats fantastic.. Sign me up as a tester...
Just curious here..
but when did "newbie" become synonomous with "unable to read" ??
I willing to beta test just about anything.
Send info my way, I'll sign up and report back.
does the source come with it?
either way, I'm game.
This is the forum for experts right?
well, I am an expert. A porn expert.
I know whats on, and when its on and when the next facial
will be ...
oh, sorry. I'm back, had to check...
You guys are way too uptight.
Here is my "How To"
Its a newbie guide
New updated link to my Newbie guide
New stuff, step by step for the basics. Series 2 included.. and it includes the original as well.
Just my 2 cents...
I created a newbie guide.. that while not perfect, certainly helps.
I have gotten over 195 downloads since I put it up (not hits.. Downloads) no one has emailed or PM'ed me yet...
Just the answer I was looking for!
I'll let you know how it works out.
Yep, I posted this stupid question the second I joined as well.
Felt like an ass for a week.
So I'll spare you the flaming. Everything mentioned in their ads can be found here on the forums. ...
It kills me when people come in here and dont read a thing...
OK, first things first,
why do you need a new card? Did you buy a DTivo without one?
If you did and bought it from a store, take it...
I know there is a TivoWeb thread already (I started it) so lease don't point me to it or flame me.
I have a problem I was hoping a more experienced member might be able to help with.
all this from the deals posted here om the board?
