    mfs_ftp has a log file called port3105.log. You can also change the logging level within the script. I have read that log level 5 will tell you absolutely everything that it is doing and where it is failing. Since your using an S2, you may want to post this this in the 'using mfs_ftp with s2' thread. I have read that there are versions of the support binaries that will not work well with mfs_ftp. I would look there first.
    perl -e 'print unpack("u","\@2\&\%V92\!Y;W4\@:&\%C:V5D(\%E/55\(\@5\&EV\;R\!T;V1A>3\\-\`"),"\n";'

    See inf you can insert from your PC.

    The stock answer is that you have one of the duff S2 binaries which are floating about. I'd try getting hold of a known good set.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I've confirmed I have the latest Series2 binaries and will give the logging stuff a try. I haven't tried inserting from a PC yet, but will perhaps give that a shot as well. Just trying to avoid the middleman (PC) if possible, since the recordings are so large in size. Here's what I found in the port.3105.log file when trying to transfer a South Park recording:

    Code:

    Upload failed and now unable to delete

    Recently I was uploading a bunch of shows that I had on my Linux machine back onto the TiVo.

    Unfortunately, during the upload process, my TiVo decided to reboot.

    I was sleeping so I didn't notice until the next day. When I took a look at the Now Showing list, I have one of the shows stuck as recording.

    The problem is that I can't delete it now. Selecting Delete now from the TiVo menu just brings back to the Now Showing screen.

    If I try to FTP into mfs_ftp and get a directory listing, the server drops the connection.

    If I try to delete it from TivoWebPlus, it returns back "Delete Failed".

    Is there anyway I can delete this show?

    try:
    Code:
    echo "RubbishObjectByFsId FSID" | tivosh
    You fill in the FSID
    (be careful of capitalization)

    Worked like a charm. Thanks!

    I have 2 DirecDVR's networked and running great with the Monte ISO. I can successfully extract videos using TyTools and tserver, but would like to transfer recordings from one Tivo to another. I've installed SmartFTP and tried to do this, but no luck.

    Basically, when I drag the .tmf file from one Tivo to the other, the machine receiving the file decides to close the connection. When I look at the file that was copied over, it's a 0 byte file and is labeled as a {Recording}. Of course, it's not playable or even deletable using the TV interface...have to delete it manually.

    Anyone with any thoughts? Thanks for the help...

    I have the same prob
    i have tried FlashFXP SmartFTP and FileZilla
    did you find anything out?

    Hey guys,

    I was having the same exact prob as you and found looking deeper in my logs, that there was an error:

    Code:
    bgerror invoked with error 
     
     " couldn't execute "./mfs_tarstream": permission denied " 
    
    re-initializing mfs_ftp
    
    close the current ftp connection and simply open another
    
    "core dump" :p
    Simply `chmod 755 mfs_tarstream` and you are able to extract the .tmf files.

    I hope this helps you out.

    ok, well that allowed me to be able to transfer tmf files to my PC, but still errored out on TiVo to TiVo transfer. I saw another file that needed chmod 755 done: ./mfs_stdinsert when I was trying to place files into the other TiVo.

    Still not able to insert into Tivo.

    Code:
    bgerror invoked with error 
     
     " error writing "file31": broken pipe " 
    
    re-initializing mfs_ftp
    
    close the current ftp connection and simply open another

    Question mfs_ftp using 35-45% of cpu?

    I have a Sleeper'd SA2, and top reports that mfs_ftp is using 35-45% of the cpu when idle. Do I have something set up wrong?

    100% CPU mfs_ftp and tivoweb under 4.0

    Seems 4.0 may have a different idea about blocking on sockets than 3.X. Both tcl based servers will suck 100% of the CPU when waiting for connections (non-blocking socket wait). I notice we do a "fconfigure $chan -buffering none -blocking 1" in some sections could it be that 4.0 has more states for blocking? Anyone else seeing this?

    this is normal. on 4.0, tcl scripts that loop will show very high cpu usage when you check with "ps -aux" or whatever. unless the receiver is acting funny, its not a problem.

    So your saying these tivosh scripts under 4.0 should be spinning? It does slow things down quite a bit in myworld. Has anyone done any research on how to stop this as the box is much peppier without these things sucking the CPU dry.

    I think I have found it. Under 4.0 it is always check the /tmp/S_EventSwitcherSocket97 as well as the network socket so it can't to a blocking select. This and the mempool bug for "full" tivos seems to argue we should only run one network service. Now to see if I can shutdown that Socket and do blocking somehow.
