    It definitely trips me up now and then. I jump back and forth between so many languages that sometimes the subconscious brain loses track of syntax. It's certainly not fun when you find "if(i = 1)...

    Unbelievable. Thank you very much. Now that you've mentioned it, it's glaringly obvious, but I never saw it. I've been writing code most of my life, and it's amazing how the simplest things trip...

    I've having a little trouble with extract.cmd and would appreciate some help if anyone has any ideas.

    I'm using a Series 1 SAT-T60

    The primary UI works great. I refresh the NowShowing list,...

    The edit to the first post indicates that the binaries will not work with 3.1. I wandered through the steps to this process as best as I could piece them together with a 2-drive 3.1 setup (booted...

    I'm not sure which version of the module I'm running. This is a virgin drive that I loaded with a T-60 25XTreme image and then upgraded to 3.1 via the upgrd310.sh command from the bootdisk.

    When...

    Help with ax88796.o devicename=eth1?

    I've been searching and reading for the last few hours, but so much information is so old that it's difficult to determine what is still relevant and what has changed.

    Anyway, I found countless...

    Everything worked as described. Once I knew to search on "initrd" I found a wealth of information. Thank you again.

  11. Please help me get a bash prompt via serial on SAT-T60 with 3.1

    I don't have XTreme or anything.

    I've verified the serial cable is fine with a multimeter and with teraterm and shorting the middle ring and tip. I've tried...

    Thanks! I'm holding out hope that the A drive can be recovered, but if that's not the case, I need to start preparing myself to extract the data from the B drive by itself. I'll start researching...

    Oh, OK. My mistake.

    Yeah, what you describe is what I'll attempt to do if the drive recovers. As I said earlier, though, I'll do a small backup first, before anything. If I can at least get...

    If I don't have the A drive (just an old backup), I don't see how this could work. In fact, I believe what I tested already earlier in the thread is essentially the same thing. The indicies are on...

    You'll see earlier in the thread that I tried just that and experienced the result you describe. The mfsadd worked fine with the extra space, but I cannot access the recordings. I did it with a new...

    You understand the situation pretty well, except the B drive is a 120. About the BIOS issue, I used the same ide controller on the same motherboard with the same BIOS to add the B drive in the first...

    Thanks for the detail. This is precisely what I plan to do. It's a long shot, but if it works, I'll be the happiest monkey you've ever seen (don't worry ... I won't fling any poop in the forum). ...

    I actually did just that. The part number is identical, but the revision is just slightly different. I figure it's worth a shot and a hell of a lot cheaper than the $500+ data recovery services...

    And the hits just keep on coming. Maxtor doesn't support this drive anymore, nor do they have a way to acquire them. They refered me to some companies that provide just the boards themselves, and...

    Oh ... forgive my apparent ignorance. I thought by "controller" he was refering to the IDE controller on the TiVo itself. You're saying there's an actual part on the drive itself that I could...

    Well, I can't get the A drive recognized anywhere. The BIOS just doesn't see it, so that's not going to happen. The problem is that the A drive is a goner. So the question becomes how to get the...

    I can fully appreciate that. I do really, really, really need the recordings. I know that sounds a bit silly, but I can assure you it's true ... sad though it is. :)

    I have a single drive SAT-T60 with a 40 gig Quantum Fireball in it. Back in April of 2002, I used Hinsdale's instructions (MFSTools 1.1, I think)...
