    It would/will be nice to have but not at the cost of all of my current hacks.
    I am correct that a software upgrade will wipe out my Sleepered setup right?

    Would this infer that you have a non-production release in your hands already?

    So, it seems that for series 2 machines, we'll be seeing:

    SAS2 => 7.1
    DTivo S2 => 6.1

    I wonder if the only difference between these 2 versions will "essentially" be TivoToGo functionality, or if there will be an ever greater divergence.

    I think 6.1 is still missing the other parts of HMO- Music & Photos, MRV, Online Scheduling. Right? Just add this to the list of things DTivo's can't do.
    (errr.. technically can do, but not without hacking... )

    Not so sure about that. Others have reported that on their R10 machines that it appears some "derivative" of HMO is included in 6.1, just not enabled yet.

    i'm sure - tivotogo has been in beta test for at least two months, and no, i'm not a beta tester.

    DirecTivo and 7.1?

    Just checking - anyone know the progress of 7.1 on a DirecTivo Series 2? I am getting a 7.1 image from a SA friend of mine this weekend, and wanted to check before hacking.

    I did some searching and can't find much on 7.1 here.

    So far, it looks like I can use the HD Tivo 3.1.5 kernel to killinit into 7.1 (no monte needed)? And I think I saw a tivoapp patch for encryption? Is this all true?

    What I can't find is anything on the RID issue. And I'm guessing the 4.x dssapp won't work?

    Thank in advance. Sorry if this is already answered but I couldn't find anything searching for 7.1.
    Tivo since '99, DirecTV since '96, Comcast since '06, FiOS TV '07!

    3 x S2 DT
    2 x S3 w/ 2xCCs and 1.5TB each
    2 x TivoHD w/ 2xCCs and 1TB each

    That's all true for hacking into a SAS2 running 7.1, but not, at this point, for getting 7.1 up and running on a DTIVO, as there are greater issues to address, such as what you have referenced, i.e. the absence of dssapp on 7.1, which makes 7.1, in its current state, DOA on a DTIVO.

    I know others, a whole lot smarter than me, are looking at the possiblities, but nothing has been reported on progress, at least publicly, to date:
