    Tytools is crashing my Tivo

    Running 2.5 xtremed DTivo with Kravens upgrade. I've tried about ten times to download a video with Tytool5, but the Tivo freezes up every time at anywhere from 10% to 70% finished. I then have to reboot the tivo.

    I've tried putting both channels on non-channels (00 and 01). I guess the next thing I should check is what other programs are running in the background. What's the easiest way to do this?

    Type ps aux at the bash prompt. The third column will show the percentage of CPU usage. Here's a sample:
    Code:
    [/var/tmp]$ ps aux
    USER       PID %CPU %MEM  SIZE   RSS TTY STAT START   TIME COMMAND
    root         1  0.0  0.0     0     0  ?  SW  Dec 10   0:00 init
    root         2  0.0  0.0     0     0  ?  SW  Dec 10   0:05 (kflushd)
    root         3  0.0  0.0     0     0  ?  SW  Dec 10   0:00 (kswapd)
    root        61  0.0  0.0     0     0  ?  SW  Dec 10   0:26 EventSwitcher
    root        62  0.2  3.8  6040  1088  ?  S   Dec 10   3:40 MfsDaemon
    root        63  0.0  1.1  1092   316  ?  S   Dec 10   0:00 fancontrol

    Now I've installed TivoWeb and here's the memory stats its giving:

    Code:
    Memory Statistics:
            total:    used:    free:  shared: buffers:  cached:
    Mem:  28631040 28147712   483328 110710784  2539520  7929856
    Swap:   749568        0   749568
    MemTotal:     27960 kB
    MemFree:        472 kB
    MemShared:   108116 kB
    Buffers:       2480 kB
    Cached:        7744 kB
    SwapTotal:      732 kB
    SwapFree:       732 kB
    Why does it look like 98% of my memory is used?

    Mine has almost the same numbers, I don't think that's the problem. I think at one time there were some issues running under WinXP. You might double check with jdiner, maybe he can help you track down the source of the problem.

    I'm putting tytools aside for the moment and trying to get MFSstream to work. I followed darkwings instructions and every TivoWeb feature appears to work. I can pull up the list of all of my recordings with MFSstream and can edit the titles and descriptions, but when I try to download the file, I just get a server errror. On a positive note, it doesn't crash my Tivo, but If anybody can offer any advice, I'd appreciate it.

    I thought I would add that I'm using an airnet card. Could the slower transfer rate be causing problems?

    I don't use wireless for my Tivo, but I have a Linksys 802.11b that is always giving me problems with connections.
