TivoLCD v.01 - Instructions and How-To for adding an LCD statu screen to Tivo
After adding another hard drive to my Tivo, enabling telnet, ftp, TivoWeb, TyTool and all the other cool goodies that are out there, I started searching around for a new project. I stumbled across this web page: http://www.notacon.com/tivolcd/ where a guy in the UK added a 2 line screen to his Tivo. Very cool I thought, why can't I do that.. so I began reading his page, (which left much to be desired in terms of instructions), but I figured enough out to realize that only needed a few parts to get this up and running...
I've completed my guide for adding an LCD screen to Tivo, as well as my hacked-to-pieces code. Please see http://www.disneycorner.com/toddscorner/tivolcd for full details.

LCD "Bootup Message" before Tivo Boots...
I've been away from the scene since my dtivo started to get dusty. (Ahem!)
So, I switched back to cable and brought my series 1 312 unit back in action with cable.
It's a lifetime sub, never called in to tivo since V1.3 !
It's been out of action for 2+ years.
I have two 250 gig drives in the old beast, and placed a CacheCARD in there.
I just spent the entire night playing with the Crystalfontz LCD display .PDF and runningit on my PC. I'm too trashed to use my dremmel tool and I even have the dremmel drill press!
Anyhow, I have created a startup screen for the display. (It has memory), and can boot a message, and a scrolling one at that, that will be displayed the moment power is applied to the Tivo, before the rc.sysinit even starts to go!
I plan to expand the information from the current scripts on this new toy.
Here's my "cold boot" display, by simply applying power to the display.
The second line will scroll and looks neat!
The beta s/w o program the boot display is on the crystalfontz (ad www & com) page.
Rename the attached file "startup.cf"
The crystalfontz boot image editor is quite simple.
I'll move further into the .tcl and sutch tommorow.

Any updates to this esp for S2 Tivo's or Dtivo's ???
Also the above link DOES work if you add a trailing "/" to the link and there are still TCL scripts available for S1's to download!!

Sorry no plans for any S2 version of this... 1. I dont' have an S2, and 2. It may not be possible.
Both links on the original post don't seem to work, any ideas where I can get info on this project?
Holy old thread resurrection
That's the url replacing the one on the notacon.com domain.
