    Missing installSw.itcl

    Greetings,

    I'm trying to upgrade my HDVR2 to 3.1.1e. Yet I cannot find installSw.itcl in tvbin, nor is it laying about the disk in some strange folder. I guess I deleted it at some point while I was learning about blocking updates...why I did so, however, is a mystery.

    Would someone please upload a version of installSw.itcl which is appropriate for use on my HDVR2 @ 3.1.1c?

    TIA

    Moved to Newbie.

    That script is copyrighted. It's probably a much better idea just to extract it from your GZtvbin slice in /SwModule .

    Thanks so much, so far. I'm following your lead in this post.

    I believe I've identified the correct object:
    Code:
    SwModule 135322/11 {
      ServerVersion  = 1
      ModuleFile     = 135323
      ModuleRelease  = 1
      ModuleVersion  = 3.1.1c-01-2
      Name           = GZtvbin
      ServerId       = 20160888
      Version        = 1
      IndexPath      = /SwModule/135322 /Server/20160888
    }
    So my tivosh transaction is:
    Code:
    % transaction { FromMfs /tmp/bin.stuff.gz 135323 }
    And I would follow it with:
    Code:
    # mkdir /tmp/bin
    # cd /tmp/bin
    # gzip -d < /tmp/bin.stuff.gz | cpio -idm --no-preserve-owner
    Then I would:
    Code:
    # mv /tmp/bin/installSw.itcl /tvbin/installSw.itcl
    And finish up with:
    Code:
    # chmod 755 /tvbin/installSw.itcl
    But I can't get that far. The FromMfs transaction returns:
    Code:
    only read 2140111468 bytes of 140
    The only other relevant object in MFS appears doesn't appear to be the correct version:
    Code:
    SwModule 218279/11 {
      ServerVersion  = 1
      ModuleFile     = 218312
      ModuleRelease  = 1
      ModuleVersion  = 3.1.5e-01-2
      Name           = GZtvbin
      ServerId       = 34560900
      Version        = 1
      IndexPath      = /SwModule/218279 /Server/34560900
    }
    I'm stuck. I guess I could restore my backup to a different HDD and snag the file via sneakernet, but I wouldn't be learning nearly as much.

    Can you help me sort this out?

    I have not seen that before. Can you extract the tyFile with mfs_export/mfs_stream/mfs_uberexport?

    Hmmm never mind, it worked after rebooting the TiVo. No clue why that happened, though.

    Thanks again, ADH.
