    Well, you're 100% in the clear if you have a SA Tivo. You're talking about analog signals that are captured in unencrypted digital format.

  95. Safe

    I've love to make a contribution to jdiner, but if the man ever pursues the contributers in this group for DMCA violations and subpoenas jdiner's paypal account, do we really want a tie-back to us?

    Sorry,no

    AFAIK, xtreme images are for combination DirectTV + Tivo boxes only. DirecTV is roughly the US equivalent of BSkyB.

    I've tested it on two 1/2 hour sitcoms that are just shy of 700MB - and unlike rc3105, I'm not able to do anything wth my resulting .mpg's. I've tried to view w/ WinDVD & a mpeg2 WMP codec.

    Thanks, Doc

    Thanks for your efforts.

    I haven't gotten it to work on the few streams I have (Run-time error '5'; Inavlid procedure call or argument) at the 98+% mark.

    127.0.0.1?

    You're kidding about that ip address right? Do a deja (google groups) search on that address along with 'loopback'. The first post you find will tell you all you need to know.

    Kraven's Upgrade w/o NOPPV

    Hi all...

    I'm running a legit subscription, and therefore have eliminated the NOPPV from Kraven's upgrade.

    I was curious about the install... Kraven mentions to run 'sync' after running noppv...

    midnightmaraude:

    I didn't have a /hack either.... the standard xtreme2.5 image has a /var/hack, as you mentioned. So you either need to create the /hack directory first or if you place the files...
  108. What's your 411, Cybermop?

    It would help if you could give us a little more info, cybermop. How did you transfer the files? Where did you add the lines to your rc.sysinit? What kind of image did you start out...

    AW:

    It's still working perfectly for me. I applied it to a clean xtreme 2.5.1 image, and I'm a happy camper. No SDD in 10 days.
