    The first tip should be

    Don't try to put 4.0 on a RID S2 unit.

    Well, it's a newbie question, which isn't the same thing.

    Briefly, the RID units use different A/V hardware than the other Series 2 systems. 3.1.1x software has the drivers to support that hardware. 4.x is OLDER than 3.1.1x and does not have the drivers.

    Well, I'm going past the limits of my knowledge here, but here is what I understand. The drivers are compiled as an addition to the kernel. They will not work with another version of the kernel. With the 3.1.1c and 4.x source codes, it would be possible to create a version of the software that would give you folders on RID units.

    Now the problems: AFIK, TiVo has not made the source code public. With the source code, it is a major task to recompile the software WITHOUT any revisions. Once you have that working, you can modify the source code, and eventually get the features you want. This usually involves a few attempts and a lot of testing before you have something stable (Folders don't do you a lot of good if the system crashes every couple of days). Without the source code, it becomes a major effort.

    I am sure there are several people here who have the ability to do this. (No, I'm not one of them). However, most (if not all) of them work for a living, and have a limited amount of free time. Given the legal issues involved, the desire to spend time with their family, and MANY projects they would like to work on, it's unlikely anyone will take this project on.

    1) those are not 4.0 tips, those are questions - WRONG THREAD

    2) those are insert related questions - see one of the mfs_ftp threads

    3) OLD news - please read before posting

    4) there's been some work on that, search should turn it up

    Lockups using usbfortivo4.zip drivers and HMO/MRV

    It looks like multiple people are having problems with these drivers.
    See this link MRV lockups
    Everything else works like a champ and the problem only manifest's itself if you are going MRV from a USB2.0 machine to a USB2.0 machine. As long as one of the machines is throttled to 1.1 speeds it works like a champ.

    Musclenerd said he was not having problems but he also said he was not using these drivers.

    READ the tips & sticky threads

    DON'T clutter tips/ref threads and annoy the mods by posting questions in the wrong place

    post questions in noob or support threads AFTER reading them to verify it hasn't allready been asked & answered

    Might be a dumb question, but could one just rename ehci-hcd.o instead of the hex edit?

    the unresolved symbols are almost certainly because you're trying to use the usbcore.o that came with the 4.0 release. as i said (plainly), you can't do that. you must use the usbcore from nobody's package.
