This question is so retarded, I had to put it in the newbie forum..
I'm trying to extract some videos over the serial port. The problem is, how do I determine what my DSR6k's IP is? Thanks.
Connect to the Tivo using bash (either over serial line or Telnet). type: ifconfig
The IP address for your interface will be displayed (along with a lot of other info).
Unless you've setup PPP over the serial port, there is no IP address for it. Besides, you will see your kids graduate college before it transfers a whole movie over serial!
If you have a TurboNet card, the IP address is set on the command line (ifconfig eth0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
