No software only hack. You must change the prom.
Here's a tip from the VB folks on making the captcha more secure.
No. It only provides pass-through.
Still no. The only inputs are DTV.
A DVR-40 is only capable of decoding DirecTV signals.
Nope. Either is comes with Tivo Basic, or you will need a subscription.
All it takes is one change...
It should have created the new directory in /var.
TCF appears to be up.
You will have to upgrade to get locals. The chances of it being a legit lifetime sub are slim.
After the upgrade, you will find out one way or another, but expect to have to pay the DVR fee.
NIC = Network Interface Card
If you have more than one NIC (which does not appear to be the case) you need to select the proper network in the Tytool interface. If you only have one NIC, it...
Do you have more than one NIC in the comupter?
You must perform the prom hack to do anything other than additional drive space.
Check to see if you can run any other TCL script. If you run another, and it reboots, you probably need to set your environment variables.
That's excellent news
Regardless, stating HD Tivos can't receive locals is inaccurate.
Maybe they can't receive your locals.
All of my HD locals (major networks) come in via MPEG2. Everything else can be acquired by a $69 antenna which I imagine they would be willing to install for a titanium customer.
Why does eveything have to be a conspiracy? There is a market for just about anything that can be sold. Spending $625 a month for sat TV may seem excessive to some, but to others, it may...
Even if it happens, it will be years from now.
or you could go here...
What do you have to lose?
Only the original will work. R10's can't be modified for anything other than space without a physical prom mod. Restore an original image to get back to normal.
Don't mention it.
Glad I could help.
Cutsey answers will not prevent Dealdatabase from being sued or shut-down. Please obide by the rules of the forum and take the discussion elsewhere. The safest ending to this discussion would be you...
Disucssion of show-swapping is forbidden at Dealdatabase
you cannot transfer between hacked and unhacked tivos
There's no need to give them a story. They will replace one receiver with another and move the card for you. If you speak with someone that won't, then call back. I have never been given a hard time.
The tuners are only compatible with DTV signals. It can't accept any other video inputs
Make sure the CD you are using is LBA-48 aware. Also, remember... garbage-in garbage-out. If the drive you are copying from is going bad, you can't be sure you are getting good data onto the new...
Hinsdale certainly has instructions for dd. You should read it sometime.
dd makes an identical copy. no formatting is needed.
There are many factors that can impact performance. One IDE channel or two, DMA on or off, etc....
If you install any version of an image for your particular machine, after a few dialups, it should upgrade to the latest version anyway.
So.... install image (without expanding if it's not the...
Clear and Delete Everything
Can't be done (within reason.) The unit is only capable of decoding DTV signals.
You have to call DTV to move receivers/cards/subscriptions.
Search this thread for R10
MFSTOOLS will take care of it all. Just restore the image. As long as the drive is less than 137gb, it will use the whole thing.
Since you didn't tell us what you did, there's no possible way we can tell you what you did wrong.
Not at any cost that would make it reasonable.
Well, your entire argument might be valid if there weren't laws specifically prohibiting those actions. Whether you agree with it or not, decrypting a signal without authorization, even if it was...
Your plan was ok, but your understanding of the document was a bit off. Killhdinitrd does not support specifc software versions, it supports specific kernels. Since 3.1.5 uses the same kernel version...
If you cancel the DVR service, it will function just like any other DTV receiver. You will not be able to record. If you want to play, you have to pay...
1 - Make sure you are authorized for them by DTV
2 - Rerun guided setup and change to the proper zip code
Not sure if it applies to S1's also, but restoring or expanding on an S2, you need -r 4 to initialize partitions greater then 274GB
Don't know, but you can hack it, then undelete the shows (provided they were not overwritten) with Edittitle
Known bug. Do it without the sat cables attached. It should timeout. After it does, reconnect them.
I think it was fixed in the latest version though.
Only OTA and DTV
Buy a drive that supports security and is less than 137gb
Put it in
Turn the power on
Not anywhere on this board. No swapping discussions are allowed.
It can be the tuner. You can replace it, but it would probably be less expensive to get a refurb series 2
The advance button.
A Series 2 recorder needs a subscription to record.
It will only work with DTV. There are no other options. Check the image begging thread for a copy of the image.
Renew your subscription.
Yes, you should upgrade. If I remember correctly, the latest version is 3.1.0c2.
You probably have a SATA controller on the motherboard also. Disable it.
Make sure your environment variables are set
hit pause and then play 45 seconds later...
Use edittitle to change the name
1) Install your xtreme image - do not expand!
2) Install LBA48-aware kernel
3) Create and activate large swap partition
4) Boot with an LBA48-aware boot disk, then expand the image to both drives
An R10 and HR10-250 are two completely different models and different techniques apply.
You will need a FAT32 partition as most boot cd's can't write to NTFS partitions
That is because it won't.
You are limited to the OS's that were written for that unit.
Make sure the boot CD is LBA48 aware
It's already running
You can't without a serious hardware modification. Check the faq's for that model number.
Look in the logs
If you hack your DTivo, you should never let it dial up.
If you set it up so you can extract recordings, any updates will break it.
Anything that messes with the channel lineup will most likely cause you grief.
Search for the error message. It is one of the most frequently asked Tytool questions.
The 28% issue is a known DTV issue. It has nothing to do with hacks or hardware. If you encounter this problem, unplug both sat inputs before powering on, wait until it times out, then reconnect them.
Mvchannels is not needed and likely will cause problems.
Reinstall clean, don't use mvchannels and all of your authorized channels will show up overnight.
What is on the new prom?
It will not resize the drive.
if - source
of - destination
Fix your terminal settings. You are sending an extra line feed.
Directv Tivos always record at the highest quality available. It is an exact duplicate of the sat broadcast, so no adjustment can be made.
Make a backup before you do anything else. Then, it doesn't matter what order you do things in.
Are you kidding?
Edit: T minus 5 posts till sewer...
You must open the box to hack it.
If you are unwilling to open it, my only suggestion is to enjoy the machine as-is.
um..... you're out of space maybe...
I don't know about that specific model, but I use the 7200.9 series and they are extremely quiet.
Any IDE drive should work. My personal preference is Seagate. You can't beat a 5 yr warranty.
Any DTivo other than the R10 will work fine. Some have had problems activating boxes that are not RID compliant, so you may be better off making sure the box you order is. Either way, RID or non-RID...
The 28% issue is a known issue. Unplug both SAT inputs before powering the unit on. After is times out, plug them back in.
you can install a dhcp server on your pc, but it's probably easier to just set a static IP via serial bash
Still no .
I have 8 now, but at one point, I had 9.
No. MFSTOOLS is the utility you will need to upgrade.
He told you that guide is not for your model. What else were you expecting?
You have not provided nearly enough information.
Did you perform any hacks? Which ones? Were there any errors? What model Tivo? What software version?
Try pressing Tivo/DTV button then LiveTV again.
Well, then you used the proper guide for your model, but you missed a step.
Did you see any errors along the way when you were typing in the commands.
By the way, using 4.0 on a DTivo is fairly...
You probably followed the wrong "guide" for your Tivo. Look at what the guide says it covers and see if your Tivo matches. I suspect not.
Also, please ensure you post detailed information when...
Not a rumor. There is a press release on the XM site.
Your question was answered in a previous thread. This has to be the #1 question asked about tytool. If you search on the error message, you will get an answer. Posting the same question again will...
Put all of your variables/startup commands in .profile
Correct on all counts. No need to connect the phone line.
Unfortunately, the DMCA does have language that prevents bypassing of security features. The prom software/hardware mods and bypassing encryption are both two examples of things that specifically...

Stop trying to patch a kernel that has no patch available.
What versions does it say it can patch?
Superpatch will not work on an HD unit. There is no HMO/MRV currently compatible.
You can't hack an R-10 without physically modifying the prom.
There was a link with good information in the "consequences of" post that you were provided with.
The info is here...
If you are...
It only takes one well placed bad sector to lose your data.
Do yourself a favor. Disks don't get better over time, they only get worse. If there is a bad sector, replace it.
It depends on how you blocked software updates.
If you don't "remember" how you did it in the first place, make a backup and start experimenting.
You are probably still encrypted
Do not submit any info to this site...
It clearly states on the main page..
"This service is for demo purposes only. No real products. No real prices. No real charges. Please do not submit real...
My mistake. I thought this was a Tivo hacking/Deal forum. I didn't realize it was for getting free advertizing. :rolleyes:

But you do...
You only need a gateway if you want to get out of your local subnet.
Come to think of it, standard communications aside, using a crossover cable, you won't have a dns server and may see delays in...
Should work fine
No need to keep hacks up to date? MS releases 3 patches a week just to keep the OS "secure"
How often do you think a Tivo is updated?
Also, compare the cost of a Tivo vs a Media Center-Capable...
I know my family has been sitting in the dark for months, but since nobody provided a link, I haven't been able to figure this out. Please... anybody!!!! Help!!!!
Show swapping is against forum rules.
Search for "transparent background". This is very common.
You haven't told us what you are trying to accomplish.
The error 51 will be cured by a "Clear and Delete Everything"
Pull the drive, boot a linux cd, mount the var partition and read the logs.
Dude, I am just trying to save you the hassle. If you still think you are smarter than all of the others that have tried in the past and failed, fell free to continue. I am sure Tivo's lawyers will...
I think the folks at Tivo Inc. may see it differently.
They actively go after anyone hosting/distributing their images without prior approval. Selling their images is probably worse. I would...
Start by reading the stickys in the Newbie Forum
You won't find them. No software modifications whatsoever can be made to that model without physically replacing the prom.
Keeps your logfiles clean or install your hacks to another partition.
You have not given enough information to come to any conclusions.
You said you used mfstools to make a backup. What version? What parameters? What output was shown?
That's the standard speech. It's not the receiver, but the access card they care about. That's what all sales/commissions are tied to. If you buy an eBay receiver that doesn't require subscription,...
As was stated in the other thread you posted in, you are barking up the wrong tree. The S2 and newer models are meant to be used with a subscription only. Get another piece of harware if you don't...
How about "pending restart"...
It's tough to tell. The DVR in the picture is not necessarily the one you will receive. If it is an R10, you can't currently hack it without physically changing the prom. If it's any other model,...
A good UHF/VHF amp helps too if you are in a "fringe" area.
Most HD channels are UHF (some may be high-VHF). Any UHF antenna will work, but you generally need to be in the right range as far as distance. Antennaweb.org can tell you which antenna is...
If you can still telnet, it did not upgrade. Check your web server config.
That is because it has been discussed to death. The answer is no.
