    Skip30 for S1 Version 3.1.0b

    Ok, heres how to patch tivoapp to default to 30 second skip on.
    FOR SERIES ONE 3.1.0b ONLY! NOT FOR SERIES 2!
    I tested with 3.1.0b-02-1-001 with DSR6000.

    From a telnet session at bash type:

    cd /tvbin
    switcherstart -k
    /*Wait for bash to return, might take a couple secs */
    mount -o remount,rw /
    /*Create backup of tivoapp in case you mess up */
    cp tivoapp tivoapp.orig
    /*Type next one VERY CAREFULLY and double check before you hit enter */
    dd if=tivoapp of=tivoapp bs=1 skip=172 seek=4190988 count=1 conv=notrunc
    mount -o remount,ro /
    reboot

    Based on the MuscleNerd method for earlier version. Props to him!

    This worked great on two of my SAT-T60's but on the third one I get "text file busy" when I do the DD command, I tried several times and I always get the same thing. Any ideas on how to get get it to work ?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    I got it to work on my third SAT-T60 by doing the following:

    cd /tvbin
    switcherstart -k
    /*Wait for bash to return, might take a couple secs */
    mount -o remount,rw /
    /*Create backup of tivoapp in case you mess up */
    cp tivoapp tivoapp.orig
    cp tivoapp tivoapp.new
    /*Type next one VERY CAREFULLY and double check before you hit enter */
    dd if=tivoapp.new of=tivoapp.new bs=1 skip=172 seek=4190988 count=1 conv=notrunc
    mv tivoapp.new tivoapp

    mount -o remount,ro /
    reboot
