    lol Riley....

    earthlink dude-
    Its b/c thats the latest software version for that particular unit.
    The DTiVo can be hacked to support later versions but they will prolly never see 4.x+ or 7.x software. Thats why your friends only have 3.x software, you can force a thousand connections, but without hacking, it won't happen.

    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:

    I wonder if this new version would have usb2 enabled out of the box.
    Has anyone find out whether the 7.1a 's stock usb drivers a USB2 or USB1.1?
