    Note though that if you run this script, any scrambled recordings that you currently have will no longer work. This means that you should only use this script if all of your recordings were recorded with noscramble. The reason being is that the particular keys stored on your tivos hard drive that are used to match the drive with the crypto chip are also used to encrypt your recordings, hence if you delete them, new keys will be generated, and the old streams will not decrypt properly.
    This may help someone?? It worked for me, Thanks to all!!
