    Yes, I do. It keeps the drunken rm -f * down to an acceptable level. :)

    Why is that? I'm curious. Is there a potential for damage if it gets rebooted while mounted as rw?
  3. Re: Capacity Question

    Absolutely not. kmem and the tivoapp patch must either both be there, or both be absent. Having Sleeper's kmem statement without the tivoapp patch will make recordings unplayable - you would be...

    mr_dickles, I went through the same problems you're having. Nutkase and I went back and forth until I got it working. I think reading our posts will clear it all up, although it sounds like you're...

    Maybe we're splitting hairs here. It's true that when you do a monte hack, you need to first use the BASH_ENV hack, so in a manner or speaking, every (non-prom) hacked S2 is using the BASH_ENV hack....

    But back to the real topic here. I've been thinking about the advantage and disadvantage of Sleeper's ISO. It's easy to use, however, it also means that people will have a custom setup without...

    I put in a Maxtor 160GB 7200 in my Tivo last week (along with the 120 5400 that was already there), and it runs a little warmer, but still way, way below the limit. I think your chances of having...

    I think this is why it's a good idea to put your hardware and software into the signature. Yeah, I made some assumptions into digitaloutlaw's setup - mainly that he was running 4.0.x. But anyone...
  9. Re: Re: mfs_ftp?

    Strangely, I don't have that file on my system, as far as I can tell, anyway. I was looking for that file earlier, and I couldn't find it. I really don't know what to make of that...

    However,...
  10. Re: Re: mfs_ftp?

    Good idea! Thanks for the help. I can see from searching that you're a big fan of this tool. Is it commonly used? I've never heard of it, but then I don't work on network code.
  11. mfs_ftp?

    I've searched around a bit and haven't quite found the exact problem I'm having. I used Sleeper's ISO (Thanks!) and did a little tweaking to get tivoapp patched and tivoweb running. Of course, I've...

    Oh yeah, one HUGE point:

    Sleeper's ISO puts in the kmem statement which records video unscrambled. That's great, but it's only half the battle. Your tivoapp is still configured to watch...

    Your flow control should be set to none. So to recap, here are the correct settings:

    115200, 8, n, 1, none

    Have you tried using telnet? I used Sleeper's ISO also, and telnet & ftp worked...

    Success!

    I deleted tivoapp and then copied over my unscrambled version and it worked as advertised. :) So I never did have to take things apart again. Thanks alot! So all my recordings work now, and I...

    I'm connected via telnet, but I'm not entering it directly (because it doesn't work.) Instead, I put it into rc.sysinit in the hopes that I'd catch it early enough.

    Anyway, don't waste your time...

    Okay, I'll give that a try. It occurred to me this morning that I should have at least put a -f switch on the cp command. I think if it needs some kind of user interaction, it would probably just...

    Yeah, that's the method I used, but it didn't allow me to overwrite tivoapp because that file is being used. (At least I think that's why it stopped me.) My hope was to overwrite it before tivoapp...

    Patching while tivo is running

    Is there a way to make the patch as determined by NutKase without dismantling the Tivo? Yeah, I'm that lazy. I made copies of tivoapp as suggested in an earlier post, but naturally I can't do the...
  19. Kudos!

    Sleeper, in case you haven't heard it enough yet, your setup disk kicks ass. I was up and running in like 15 minutes. Thanks!

    Yeah, that's exactly it. Thanks! I glanced at that thread, but I missed it completely.
  21. Enabling upgrades with the monte hack

    I read someplace that it's possible to enable version upgrades while using the monte hack. But endless searching has turned up nothing. Does anyone know if and how it can be done?

    DMCA vs. Authors

    Nice review, mrblack51. I just picked up a copy of Jeff's book, and I think I'll get this one as well because of the monte section. Actually, I'm a close friend of Jeff's in the real world, and I...

    One more thing, Chiun - I don't think you can run an earlier OS version than what your S2 had when you first bought it. So if it's brand new, and only knows, say, 3.2 and later, you might not be...

    Chiun, I'm no expert (and I haven't done it myself yet), but I think the first step is to get a 3.1 or 3.0 image. Then you can use the BASH_ENV trick and run from there. Essentially, it's the same...

    So it's possible to downgrade the OS without wiping the recordings? I had assumed that you'd basically follow these steps, which would wipe everything:

    jeff_l , I like your idea. I suppose the way to go about it would be to monitor the network traffic between two HMO S2s and try to decipher the messages.
