    ps x
    To stop execution of a process, use the "kill" command, followed by the process id (PID).
    As for why it dies... *shrug*

    Running PS...

    You can run this from inside of tivosh. From the bash prompt type:

    tivosh
    ps


    you should get a list of the currently running processes. Note that kill <pid> works in tivosh and bash but ps only seems to work under tivosh.

    This is strange. I run ps under bash all the time, and never have to resort to using tivosh .
    I've done this with ver 1.3 , 2.51 , .and now on ver 3 . You should NOT need to go into tivosh to run ps .
    If ps doesn't run under bash, then there is probably something messed up with respect to the path. Do an " echo $PATH " and check to see if ps is in one of the directories listed in your path.
    Also, I don't think that the ps command is part of the TIVO software, but instead, I think it is one of the utilities that came in the tivobin directory that is formed when you install tivonet.
