    How to Send .ty Files back to DVR?

    How do I send .ty files back to my 6.2 hacked DTiVo or is it possible?

    Thanks!!

    If use use mfs_ftp to extract you use it to send it back as well.

    Not sure if you can send a file extracted with TyTool as well, never tried. If it does work, it'd probably be missing program information.

    Notice I said mfs_ftp.

    Files are stored in mfs, not in a folder.

    You can't just ftp a .ty file back.

    Research mfs_ftp, it'll become clear.

    I can't find the latest version of this that works with a hacked 6.2 DTivo. Can you point me in the direction for the latest version?

    Thanks!

    Btw, I'm using TyTool to extract the video. How do I send the video back? I tried one version of mfs_ftp but it crashed. I am running a hacked 6.2 DTivo.

    once mfs_ftp is running for 6.2 you need to comment all all event calls in mfs_ftp.tcl

    search for evt and comment as as follows:


    reset_control_socket
    # event register $TmkEvent::EVT_DATA_CHANGED datachanged
    }


    restart mfs_ftp or box and insertions should work fine.

    to send back as follows using windows command line ftp client or use any ftp client that has a sun solaris mode and can connect to port 3105 (one is my freeware port of ws_ftp32... email me if you need a copy)




    C:\>ftp
    ftp> open tivo1 3105
    Connected to tivo1.
    220 Mfs_Ftp ver 1.2.9Q - {sock196} from "xx.xxx.190.121:2374"
    User (tivo1none)):
    331 User name okay, need password.
    Password:
    230 Running in TiVo Mode.
    ftp> cd tmf
    250 Directory change successful.
    ftp> put xxxxx.tmf


    or

    cd ty
    250 Directory change successful.
    ftp> put xxxx.ty

    Thanks for your reply, but like I said earlier, the version of mfs_ftp that I have isn't working for 6.2. If gives me errors from inside the script itself. I have searched through various threads but I haven't really found an answer on how to make it run, at least something that I understand. I'm somewhat new to this and linux.

    Thanks

    Follow lgkahns advice above, and you should end up with a working copy of mfs_ftp

    The script already says that.

    Here is what I get when I run the script:


    bash-2.02# tivosh mfs_ftp.tcl
    bash-2.02# child process exited abnormally
    while executing
    "exec $info(path)/tzoffset.tcl 2>/dev/null"
    (procedure "get_tzoffset" line 10)
    invoked from within
    "get_tzoffset"
    (procedure "init_procs" line 7)
    invoked from within
    "init_procs"
    (file "./mfs_ftp.tcl" line 1534)


    Thanks again

    The script already says what?

    Since you seem to be having problems with tzoffset on a 6.2 system, what happens when you search for tzoffset and 6.2?

    put this file there

    tivo:/var/mfs_ftp$ cat tzoffset.txt
    # <tzoffset>-18000</tzoffset>
    set info(tzoffset) -18000
    tivo:/var/mfs_ftp$
    tivo:/var/mfs_ftp$


    it looks like there is a bug in tzoffset.tcl for 6.2 if the file is not found..

    ie

    tivo:/var/mfs_ftp$ tzoffset.tcl
    invalid attribute: DaylightSavingsPolicy
    while executing
    "dbobj $lconfig get DaylightSavingsPolicy"
    ("uplevel" body line 32)
    invoked from within
    "uplevel $body"
    invoked from within
    "transaction {uplevel $body}"
    (procedure "RetryTransaction" line 5)
    invoked from within
    "RetryTransaction {
    set swsystem [db $db open /SwSystem/ACTIVE]
    set tivoswversion [dbobj $swsystem get Name]
    set setup [db $db open /Setup]
    if { [s..."
    (procedure "get_tzoffset_one" line 3)
    invoked from within
    "get_tzoffset_one"
    (file "./tzoffset.tcl" line 108)
    tivo:/var/mfs_ftp$
    tivo:/var/mfs_ftp$ ls

    probably most people havnt' found this issue with 6.2 as they all have the tzoffset.txt file so it never calls the tcl


    I will look at trying to fixing/patch it (if it is ok with reilly)

    Put this file where?

    I'm am using version 1.2.9p of mfs_ftp and I FTPed the s2bins.tar file as well and unzipped it into the mfs_ftp directory.

    Here is what the mfs_ftp.tcl script itself says...(Most of the text has been removed.) What you suggested is in bold.



    reset_control_socket
    #event register $TmkEvent::EVT_DATA_CHANGED datachanged
    }

    proc CDUP { fsock } {
    global info
    outd 2 "CDUP"
    set info(dir) "/"
    tee $fsock "250 Directory change successful."
    }

    Ok, I FTPed the .txt file over to the mfs_ftp directory, and now the script runs and returns to the bash prompt. How do I then send a .ty file back? What directory do I sent it to?

    Thanks

    here is a patched tzoffset not sure it is correct but just has error handling so it doesn't fail if the call fails. (I checked and tzoffset is the same for P or Q versions of mfs_ftp)
