    Smile Ultimate TIVO Hacking

    I just got a rca dwd490re receiver used from an acqaintance. I have been reading the last couple of days about hacking TIVO's, but there is little information about UTV. All of the great Linux based utilities such as Xtreme, etc. are not available for this unit? None of the FAQ's (Captain Video) I have read apply to UTV? It appears that the only threads in UTV involve reverting back to 3.5.

    Is hacking the UTV very limited?

    Any info would be appreciated.

    If you look through all the threads all the information is available is quite easy to do. probably easier than tivo and utv in my opinion is a much easier and better system than a tivo.

    There are not many hacks available for UTV however there are a few. There is some work being done on UTV and hopefully someday we will have some of the nicer mods available for TiVo also available for UTV.

    They are however completely different animals, UTV runs a Windows CE variant for its OS and TiVo runs a *nix variant similar to debian as I recall.

    There are a few things you can do with UTV but rolling back to 3.5 seems to be the most popular thing to do.

    Zorlac, people like you make me sick. Your ebay listing was pointed out to me. I think what you are doing is just flat out low down crappy to the whole community of real testers. Did you just get this handed to you on a silver platter and then decide to cash in or what?

    It is one thing to work for something and excersize your brain and another thing to just buy your way to the end result. It is another thing to take someone elses work and profit from it for personal gain.

    Re: eBay

    Oops, I used the wrong screen shot. My bad.

    As soon as I get a chance, I will update it with the screen shot that clearly shows <edited> instead.


    A response to your unexpected and unwarranted flame:

    Not that your opinion matters, but I graduated top of my class in electronic engineering and have been working with computers and electronics longer than you have probably been alive.

    You must have started working with computers before punch cards then.
