    Yup. My backup was bad. I restored my full-sized backup and ran everything again and came out with 384M (1.3/1.21) without bothering to zero out any of the stuff. I'll probably mount it up byte-swapped again and clear everything out then try bzipping it again. FOr now this is fine though. As long as it fits on a single CDR I am happy.

    I guess the next thing to do is to try to replace some of the animations (like the startup animation) with MUCH smaller ones and see what happens. I am really happy to have a single CD backup now though.

    The only thing that would make me happier would be a version of zaptivo that works without the byte swapping. From what I can see it would not be all that hard. Just replace the ioctl in open_mfs with one that does raw reads and parses them (there is a perl script on AVSForum that shows how) then if the drive signature is backwards, flip all the things you are looking for (MAGIC_SIGNATURE, etc) and writing and that should take care of it.

    upload it

    Using ZapTivo I was able to create a 136MB 2.x backup of my Sony SVR-2000... I was able to use my stored-HD for something else after that <grin>.
    seeing all requests for sony backups I have in the mailbox, I think it is time for you to upload your back up. Look at the back up thread in this forum or pm me.

    the smallest backup I have on the ftp is 360mb...come on: lots of you can beat that. pm me to upload all those different versions and types. We like virgins as wel as hacked oldies..

    Talking SVR-2000 2.5.1 Virgin/Factory

    okay - got my hard drives from compuplus, got my tivonet and hdd bracket from 9thtee, my sonic blue rio mp3 player (hey, waitaminit - wrong forum )

    seriously, i've started uploading a virgin/factory backup of my Sony SVR-2000 30 hour single drive unit to the incoming directory. it's software version 2.5.1, and about 90 megabytes.

    hope this helps some of you . . .
