    Did you try putting the hard drive in the tivo and booting?

    I say that because I'm pretty sure that it went back to the menu becuase that might be the last operation of the hacks phase......the process would then be DONE!

    I agree with jeliot, I think you may be finished although I don't remember what the very last step is.

    Also, I had some weird problems when I was using it the other day, only to find that when I had set the cd aside to put in a different disc, I put a tiny scratch in the tivo scripts cd. It caused all kinds of weird behavior, so make sure your cd is clean, too....

    1) NEWBIE question, DO NOT post this garbage in the S2 Hacking Forum unless you add it to the sleeper thread.

    2) Learn what the hell you're doing before you post another stupid question like this. Even a young child could use the sleeper scripts without screwing up.

    Hmmm. Is that a complement or an insult?

    Perhaps both!
