I think there's some confusion creeping in on what you need to do to get your locals back with Xtreme 2.5.2 and a P4 card. Although I haven't had a chance to implement this, here's what I'm getting out of this thread along with some research I've done using the all-knowing search button:
Upgrade your current version of Xtreme to 2.5.2 using SuperZap's upgrade. This should not affect any of your current settings or recordings. You will have to activate all of the included hacks manually using xPlusZ. See the upgrade sticky thread for info on doing this.
If you have Kraven's upgrade installed over 2.5Xtreme you can install SZ's upgrade to 2.5.2 right over it. Don't forget to reboot to start up some of the xPlusZ hacks since they are initiated at bootup and don't necessarily start when you turn them on via the dial prefix.
Go to the Messages & setup screen and select the System Reset menu. In the System Reset menu, do a Clear Guide and To Do, NOT the Clear and Delete Everything. There is a major difference between the two options. A Clear Guide and To Do simply wipes out the current program guide and everything that's set up in your To Do list and allows it to rebuild from scratch. A Clear and Delete Everything wipes out all of your current settings, preferences and recordings and should only be done if you're getting an error #51 message.
While upgrading to 3.1 has not really been covered all that much in this thread, I am assuming that it is also a viable option. Running JJBliss' BlissTerPopper should allow you to use an Hu card with 3.1. Follow the same procedures outlined above for restarting all of the hacks manually via xPlusZ for 2.5.2.
If you have a static IP in 2.5 you will have to edit your rc.remote-login file as before to implement it. I believe there is an extra step involved for 3.1 and the instructions for setting it up are in the upgrade sticky thread.
The updated turbonet driver can simply be uploaded to the Tivo and replace the existing ax88796.o file in the /lib/modules directory for 2.5.2 followed by a reboot. 3.1 may require a different setup than 2.5.2 (sorry, I thought I had the info but apparently I forgot to save the link).
Setting up mfsstream in 2.5.2 requires that the path for the mfs_stream file needs to be corrected in the mfsstream.cfg file on line 8. Just change the path to reflect the correct location of the file. You may need to download the MfsStreamWeb98b.zip file to get TivoWeb and mfsstream working.
I think that about covers all of the hacks and updates that need to be set up when doing the upgrade to 2.5.2 or 3.1. There may be others but these are the ones I use so I thought I'd pass along the info. I expect to do my upgrades sometime this weekend as time permits.

Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!
