    mods for 11.0d

    Am I correct that the only change needed in mlcarlson's procedure (first post of this thread) for the new 11.0d software is to use the new tivoapp patches given in this post ?

    How does TiVo know ?

    I keep reading that if you open the TiVo case you invalidate the warranty. However suppose I do an internal drive upgrade in an HD, saving the original internal drive unmodified. Then later I swap...

    So..... Is some of the tivo software actually (text) TCL source code ? I would be surprised but it sure would simplify hacking I would think.

    where is the TCL interpreter?

    When you telnet in and run tvapppatch.tcl, I assume the TCL interpreter must be present on the TiVo HDD, correct?

    Has this been accomplished by the mlcarson sequence, or is it there to begin...

    iptable confusion....

    Again I tried to follow the linked thread chain without learning much. Does your statement mean that the "exit 0" fix WAS correct as used by mlcarson (since he used a modified kernel)? Or what?

    "... using bootpage" ?

    Thanks PB.

    What does "using bootpage" mean. Is bootpage one of the utilities? Which package? (I know there is a bootpage in the software.)

    Does one have to have serial port access on the HD to (in-place) hack it? Isn't there a way to use the ethernet port and telnet client? (I did look at the linked thread but it didn't help me.)
