Look of shame on my face...

my script to 'echo -ne "\x3C\x02\x00\x00" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp.tmp bs=1 seek=6984684' had a bug and so while I thought I had noscrambled three of my machines I had in fact not, then when I added all the other stuff I was doing at the same time I didn't realize it.

Thanks for catching that .
