    Just a matter of expectations, I guess; I'd always had it in my head that hacking the Tivo was gonna be a one-time thing.

    Screw all, I'm starting over. Does it help?

    I've got a Sleeper-modded 4.0.1a SA S2 Tivo that's not getting guide data anymore. I could un-Sleeper it, but even that's only a small step. I need to re-expand the drive anyway. (And even a...
  3. TyTool - can I get a CLI for automating downloads?

    What I'd really like to do is set up some scripts to grab newly-recorded stuff overnight from the Tivo. The downloads take forever; the processing, not so much.

    All I need from TyTool is a...

    Okay, and now it's got guide data again, if only for a little while. WEIRD.

    Is the incompatibility between Sleeper-ISO-modded S2 SA 4.0.1 Tivos and the server such that the guide downloads do...

    Oh, duh - that makes sense. I think I lost track of the fact that adding rc.sysinit.author and modding tivoapp are two separate things.


    Uhm, well, yes. :(

    Thanks!!!

    As for installing the patches before vs after reboot... if I reboot before I patch, won't that leave me booting either directly into the new 4.0.1b software, or monte'ing through the...

    Okay - so let me see if I've got this straight.

    I've got a S2 SA Tivo, which I modded to install Monte and most of the tivoapp hacks, with Sleeper's ISO, sometime end of '03.

    WEIRD. I mean, I read that six months ago... but then my TiVo mysteriously started working again, and I didn't investigate further...

  10. Did the TiVo program guide format change recently?

    My (sleeper ISO modded S2SA) TiVo's now warning that it's only got 7 days of program guide info left. Last time this happened, I had a bad network connection, but I can consistently telnet into it. ...

    Okay, so hdd16 is where romfs goes...
    but why doesn't hdd16 come out the same size on every mfsrestore-built disk, if a file of a certain size needs to be there? And, more to the point, what do I...
  12. Backing up a monte'd S2 SA Tivo with dd - what am I missing?

    Okay, what's the trick here? Which partitions are crucial, and WHY?

    I've got a 200GB drive that's my source, and a 120GB drive that's my target.
    First, I do an mfsbackup | mfsrestore, mostly to...

    It's known possible (and you can read up here on how to do it) to mod a S2 SA Tivo to not encrypt video as it records.

    It's believed possible to undo the encryption on already-recorded video;...

    Hey, Nutkase - thanks for responding.
    Symptoms before remote still works... there weren't any, actually. I think I figured that if tivoapp were running, that rm'ing it and replacing it would do Bad...
  15. Getting the right image to the right drive

    What I've got:
    * SA S2 Tivo-brand Tivo.
    * 40GB virgin original Tivo drive w/4.01 s/w
    * mfsbackup image of a 4.01 SA S2 drive
    * 200GB drive updated to 4.01a, then Monte'd with Sleeper's ISO (NOT...

    Ditto. MFSBackup | MFSRestore, for some reason I haven't figured out yet, does NOT work on a drive that's been Monte'd, and restoring the image also gave me a hang at 'Welcone. Powering Up...'....

    Nope; I've only thought scrambling applied to the DirecTiVos.

    CRAP.

    Problem: The file that I extracted expecting a .Ty stream isn't loading into TyStudio Editor.

    HOW?

    For whatever reason, when I back up the 200GB...
  21. mfsbackup/mfsrestore problems with image sizes

    My goal: To back up a 200GB Tivo drive onto a 120GB drive, so I can continue to play with the 120GB drive. I've only got about 8 hours of video on the 200GB drive, so this seems reasonable.

    I...
