Saw an 250 image from TCF that was an selfextracting exe, admitdly bad packaging but was safe when extracted.
Its still a garbage statment IMHO
As long as they are active cards they don't give you grief. Took less than 15 mins here (including a reboot for locals)
Of course there is the posiblity that you could hit the correct postioning of electro-magnets to change the appropriate disk sectors, but that's verry much YMMV :)
Believe you know the answer then.......
Someone answered on TCF from what I see....
Jamie types too fast :)
As I said run the tools on bith drives and check the waranty status until a year or so ago I believe the Maxtors came with an 3-5 year warranty. I have seen malfunctioning drives become usable after...
Seems to me their was a post stating it was the same as 3.1.1e but I may be mistaken.
I would determine what brand of deives (Maxtor, Western Digital, etc.) They are and goto the Manufactures website and get thier diagnostic software (PowerMax etc) and run an anaylsis on each drive,...
Request number 2 is likley to get you booted from the board.
Neither will bring much on ebay without a real lifetime subscription. IMHO
At the time you purchased (actually imediatly after payment) you should have had the seller do the transfer online at Tivo.com and gotten a confirmation email from them. That would have confirmed the...
I would be concerned about any database changes which would keep you from switching back to the 3.1.1e setup without a reimage.
You might want to grab off the slices before runinng the update for...
The change to the scripts was made quickly when that was pointed out, why do you feel it is your responsiblity to grind this effort into the ground?
Quite the "fanboy" aren't you...
Please point out waht is illegal about this as opposed to many of the other hacks on this board.
Actually yamboo29 attempted to post this information earlier but because of a badly configured websever ( I beleive) he was slapped down to the sewer by a mod who should now apologize.
I thought the 19" monitor was big enough for my old tired eyes. :)
Most likley tyindex dying off, its a fickle little beast.
But TyStudio is just great on S1's.
You didnt mention what version Dtivo you have, if its an S2 you should look for the tyindex file from chrsturbo. Also if the shows are not indexed you cannot download to PC until they are, look for...
Yes I've been using this with TyStudio output files, it does the job BUT has some issues when the resulting mpegs are used with dvdauthor.
The developers seem to be keen on branching out to tivo...
Check the dmesg output in linux to see what size the drive was detected as, older bioses may not detect a large drive properly, you may need to pass the drive paramaters to the kernel at boottime.
Thanks I scoured alt.org for a while don't know how I missed that...
I'm still interested in importing into v4.0 folders from a 3.X.
Now that you mention this I have searched for quite a while for import.tcl (from mbm) without sucess, to do this from drive to drive for S1's w/o networking.
Great Il I'll make use of it in future, assmuing i ever make a mistake :)
Since I can't imply anything from your post what would be well tested?
Several hundred hours of recordings,transfers and burns from differnt units?
Or is there a set of testing requirments I...
A subbed SA2 with 4.x had this issue?
I would have complaind to TivO about their hw/sw.
Never seen on the 2 my relatives have.
Since this feature is is posted on the forums, why would you pay for it?
This is how co-operative development should work, not with the promise of payment but the gratitude of users.
I venture that if MuscleNerd goes this route he will be more praised than if the...
I can't resist as I work on SCO daily its not your age making you forget its your conscience....
Really you will find most linux intuitive, as oposed to TiVo's.
If you have any bash...
That is the exact reason I spoke out regarding the new rule a mod/developer can make different claims (not that they ever would) against a user.
I'm still not a leech btw...
Correct and I apologize to Tiger
As is required in GPL sw unless you are M$
Yea, what JJBliss said.
Now I am a noob here so I'll ask my question in the sewer to JJBliss.
JJBliss, would tytyty be defined as a 'Fanboy'? :eek:[/QUOTE]
Ahh does the illusive
And he removed them as requested
i.e. TivoScripts 1.02
This is what you get when software is not "open"
ingeneer led the way by showing us how to use open software to monte.
Olaf gave us...
Nice now you have called the users "leeches"
This has been enforced sporatically and based on mods whims
Bow down to the GODS
Looks like the end of user input.
Frequently people "trying to get the information out there" is the issue.
Not having to make edits to "helpfull" posts is more effective.
First rule of support is to probe user on ablities.
The first question you need to answer is what model is your dtivo?
A rid unit will not take the 4.X at all (well with the "public" tools).
that title is farily abusive
Ok I agree except posts 10 11,13 and 15 of this split thread.
Not that I feel any differnet about the license issue.
6 out of 10 of these moved posts do not address the "licensing" issue" why were they moved here?
And this post is regarding what?
Oh I'll dig thru and guess it's
Wow asked question got accused of violation of copyright law..
btw want to comment on the bashing signature I dissected?
seems users have been admonished for less
Imediate email notification of thread changes is also alot of fun.
Nice you stepped right in it. I've been meaning to comment on your signature...
Since the killhdinitrd licence does not allow you to publish, discuss or improve upon the binary. Who exactly is...
Some find a lack of food due to unemployment "distasteful", too bad that's not illegal.
Gee do I have to edit the parent as I did not seperate the quotes correctly.
Sure sold a few S1's couple of S2's got burned on some also.
NONE of them contained any "developers" licenced software (that worked as installed), since tystudio has ALWAYS been GPL.
Orig unit was Phillips 312 bought off ebay as lifetime, bad hd. extreme took care of that reg was transfered directly to her name.
No DTV hacking mentioned are you acusing me of something?
Sorry Mom I cant give you my TivO as that violates the licsense.
Could be they prefer a method that dosen't require acquiescence to an restrictive "licsense".
True, I've always wondered where you stood regarding that...
The PM's, IRC must have been quite antimated.
What makes you think Sleeper did all the development?
Oh and if you want to talk about "ass kissers" you have a legion.
Not a lot of motivation after the HDTeam deliberatly degraded him with his announcement of the prom hack. And then continued to bait and abuse him in order to force their desired result, his banning...
My bad from what I understood of his post it appeared that he wanted to use the 40gig to expand to, not just as the C: drive while using Tivoscripts.
Yes the unit is rid and needs at a minimum the...
PlainBill has been helping. I have noticed that since the Deprecated tag was hung on the title more people are asking questions outside that thread...
The drive must be at least as big as the original as mfsrestore needs to mirror the partition sizes, so you cannot backup a 80gig unit to a 40gig drive even without any recordings.
I apoligize for the troll comment it came out due to your low post count, calling the Tivioscripts iso "Sleepers" and your question regrding his banishment. There are quite a few...
Looks like a troll smells like a troll....
Text instructions are all over Tivoscripts during execution along with abilty to bail out at anytime, your continual reference to Sleeper as its...
Assume you can understand what I said so lets try this
In the system info display do you see sucsessfull call whan the phoneline is disconected?
Jaime is correct I assumed that a "tivo" aware version of knoplix was being used. However, if its not detected by bios anyway, even that wont help.
Does the bios detect the drive i.e. before the cd boots do you see the drive in the bios output, you may need to turn on the output screen in the bios to see this.
System Info should show a succesful phone call w/o phoneline connected.
I think AlphaWolf maybe pointing us at something new or just missed the unit type.
Interesting comment if its the former.....
Gee the TivoScripts tells you at each and every step of the way exactly what it is doing and the commands it is executing, what was it you did not understand?
The rc3105 script may do that also...
The problem is you used a "script" "package" or "fix", the only way to "hack" is to learn from the developers submissions and search for the solutions to problems.
Do a search for modemtest, there are several ways to bypass the test to get you booted so you can run the tests from the menu.
Ive never seen any tivo that cant use either remote, even the dvd units use same codes, obviously extended for their other capablities.
Its not about the linux skills, that is secondary to the ablity to disassemble, quantify and resolve relationships in ppc/mips functions within the tivo enviroment, notice the best "hacks" are based...
If you want easy I suggest TyStudio, other than tyindex dying ocasionally (longest Ive seen it stay up is 22 days) its really straightforeward and creats mpegs that many windows players can run. Not...

Does the show you are attempting to extract show as indexed ?
Can you extract using mfs-ftp?
This is the exact reason I have never used TyTool, open-source allows for many to contribute to (or break) a project. It is also the reason I do not use non-GPL software except where no comparable...
Actually at each step of the way tivoscripts tells you exactly what it is doing.
I always thought that was extremly helpful as it shows the command structure required. Of course you still will have...

Slice is a nickname for the individual files downloaded for an software upgrade, that when properly handled give a tivo new capablities or not.

This thread is specfically for 3.1.5d on SD units, your questions regarding HD units may confuse some. Pleas make another thread for HD 3.1.5 questions.
Lets focus on this:
The 3.1.5d being loaded onto the S2 units IS NOT THE same as the HD 3.1.5 from what I have been able to find, of course I do not have a copy of the HD 3.1.5 to compare so it...

dave4089 hit it right, not such a newbie after all.
Lets remember that almost all units in retail stores are rid units and may not be suitiable for all modifications depending on your desires.

The reason the restart command fails with cannot umount /var is due to your presence in a dir in the /var mountpoint.

I beleive you are dealing with a hardware issue, bad cable, flacky connector.
I would test with another adapter, cable etc....
Strange, I find no diffs between these scripts (except superpatch.tcl was named tpatch) and the versions I was given by the developer and told they were not to be released.

ADH luckily I still have the 120G drive here I will explore the logs and post later this weekend.
Well I finally got a 120G drive to try this with.
Unfortunatly I have no positive results to post.

I beleive this post will help you understand what you need to do.

I havent had a drive bigger than 80gig free, I beleive I will be able to try this weekend.
Ill report back then.
OK that makes sense, so the best way to order is via web in this situation.
As you are a MOD (cant that be reflected in your title?) I won't comment regarding the removal of the other post.
I still don't see an answer to his question and am interested in an answer to...
Looks like a Mod overreacted as you did mention that you previously were a naughty boy.

You do not need the...
Duh, I never thought to compile the cvs version thinking that no changes had been made since the 2.0 release. Ill run through this now and see if the drive really shows expanded space on the unit...
According to the BSA you must have a receipt for the hardware that includes the identifiers for that particular machines s/n from a OEM reseller otherwise its fine city. Ask me how I know this :mad:...
time for a hard drive check
ty adh thats also what I have done having 39's helps also
I am also interested having a couple of units prommed in sockets I held off too long then found that Kraven had abandonded that service.
Now this is an correctly named thred :)
Meathead as you and I are in the same situation regarding Greek not returning units or responding to any communications I share your frustration.
For the others of you out there who have had...
Yes but smaller, try ratshack nice little null modem adapter but requires a genderbender also
For a dsr 7000 I would go with 4.0 with 4.0b network drivers
All of those need to be commented off in a 4.X setup
also you probably overwrote the better drivers that shipped with 4.01
I would redo that setup from begining
modify the mac.c in the 2.6 kernel source per the instructions found in this forum and recompile the kernel on your desktop it has nothing to do with the files on linux.com
In the menus under messages and setup there is a restart menu use that. Random unplugging of unit is a no no.
Yes I had to call in a second time to request the service, also they didnt apreciate me playing back my original conversation with them where I specifically asked for the service. :D
have you check drive with manf tools?
Some systems (dell, gateway) have a non fat partition for restores.

I prefer doing a one liner #!/bin/bash so system dosent choke on failure to find app.
Nice response, yes the lba48 kernel will allow this, no its not foolproof (why we have forums).
This issue dosent sound like an expansion problem as much as an drive issue.
Hey wtf cares if you cant figure out Sleepers error after doing a search re the issue
