    Pre-hacked TiVos are not sanctioned or supported on this board. Contact the seller, and if he does not provide satisfactory guidance, file a dispute with your credit card issuer.

    You can use any FTP client to transfer files over to Tivo. Read the mfs_ftp thread on how to install it properly onto Tivo. But looks like you might need to brush up on some basic UNIX as well. Since you paid someone money for your Tivo, you should go to them for tech support.

    And where do you think the guy who hacked it got the software?

    Do you think he paid the people who wrote the software? Do you think he asked their permission to distribute it? Do you think he has written any software himself?

    Or, just maybe, he's someone who took all the work that lots of other people in the community have done, figuring out the way the Tivo works, writing the hacks, EXPLAINING HOW TO USE THEM TO NOOBS LIKE YOU AND ME... and then charges unsuspecting people (like you) to do a few minutes of shoddy work, drop it in your lap, take your money, and never provide any support...

    Oh yeah, and he expects you to go get your support from the community of people who wrote the software - the same people that he didn't pay to use their software, remember?


    Now maybe you understand why you're not getting a warm reception. The community supports those who learn and are willing to invest time and effort into learning the process - not those who take money from people who don't want to put the effort into it, or get the support out of it.
    Have a question? Try a search first...

    Oh, OK... eBay. Then everything's all right. You got it off eBay. Why didn't you say so.

    Welcome to the board; help will be forthcoming shortly. Enjoy!

    As an alternative anyone is free to read the threads on this board. All the information is easily available if you just look around for a short while. Perhaps pop open the search tab and play with it a bit.

    I don't condone pre-hacked tivo's either, but if someone takes the energy to educate themselves and support themselves its not so bad.

    BTW, its nice that mfs_ftp was NOT on the tivo, looks like the pressure from the author has corrected at least one persons habits a bit. That or they accidentially read the licence agreement for the application.

    More likely they just ran Sleeper's script, which doesn't install it.

    And this is an emergency? Quick help !!
    Is your eBay tivo working?

    If you don't know how to load mfs_ftp, if you have to ask if telnet is the method to transfer files, then it is more likely that not that you won't know
    what to do with mfs_ftp if we gave you step by step instructions on how to install it.

    BTW are you trying to use the mips or the ppc binaries and why?

    What hack encryption hack are you running or aren't you?

    thankfully! the obsolete/corrupted version on the first tivoscripts iso created as much grief as the e-bay leeches. (wreaks havok on 4.x / 5.x boxes)

    My guess is (with the topic, the low post count for the poster and the general feeling of the board) that this was just a troll.

    Looks like the troll worked.

    If it was not a troll, then the original poster should feel free to read the umpteen threads that explain how to install stuff on his tivo, or contact his seller to arrange support.
