Attached is the HMO superpatch for users running v4.0 on their HDVR2s. It enables all HMO/MRV functions (and then some)!
- enables Music and Photos
- enables Multiroom Viewing (MRV)
- decrypts all HMO/MRV network traffic
- disables the daily nag screen when your box hasn't connected to the service for more than 30 days
- decrypts all future records (as provided by other patches on this forum)
- other various stuff
There are two patches, and ideally each needs to be run only once. The superpatch.tcl script patches your tivoapp binary. For directions on how to apply this sort of patch, please refer to other posts in this forum. After applying the patch, reboot your TiVo.
Once your system is up and running again, think of a name you want to call your TiVo. This is what other TiVos on your network will see in their Now Showing list. Give the name as an argument to the set_mrv_name.tcl script. This is necessary because the superpatch overrides all the normal TiVo certificate controls, which is where the network name usually comes from. You should only need to run this once, unless you've deleted your previous fake certificate.
This patch is specifically targeted at v4.0 users, and I will not be providing similar patches for other versions. This is to prevent the possiblity of theft of service by SA S2 owners (who are running on other versions). I strongly discrourage anyone from porting the superpatch to other TiVo versions.
I may also be releasing applications that take advantage of the decrypted HMO/MRV network layer (think: pulling recordings directly from your TiVo to your PC using TiVo's own MRV protocol).
Anyhow, this is what many people have been waiting for, so enjoy!
