    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?
    you need to do some series reading dude... I showed you exactly what to do in the post above... cd to either the ty or tmf directoriy and put the file back

    I still get an error when I run the script. After it returns to the bash prompt, about 10 seconds later, I get this (this was after putting the .txt file and the new .tcl files in the directory):

    bash-2.02# couldn't open socket: address already in use
    while executing
    "socket -server newcsocket $port"
    (procedure "setup_control_socket" line 4)
    invoked from within
    "setup_control_socket $info(port)"
    (procedure "reset_control_socket" line 9)
    invoked from within
    "reset_control_socket"
    (procedure "init_procs" line 13)
    invoked from within
    "init_procs"
    (file "./mfs_ftp.tcl" line 1534)

    Along with the .tcl file you posted and the .txt file, I'm still getting errors after it returns to the bash prompt.

    Ok. I copied the .ty file to the root directory of my pc.

    This is what I then did:

    C:\>ftp
    ftp> open 192.168.1.xxx 3105
    Connected to 192.168.1.xxx.
    220 Mfs_Ftp ver 1.2.9p - {sock22} from "192.168.1.xxx:4611"
    User (192.168.1.xxxnone)):
    331 User name okay, need password.
    Password:
    230 Running in TiVo Mode.
    ftp> cd ty
    250 Directory change successful.
    ftp> put discoveries.ty
    200 PORT command successful.
    150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for "{discoveries.ty}"
    > Netout :Software caused connection abort
    Connection closed by remote host.
    ftp>

    What happened?

    I was running an FTP client, hence the error right above.

    Ok, it finally transferred. But, when I go into Now Playing to play it, it acts like it's recording. When I try to play it, it doesn't play. When I try to delete it, it doesn't delete.

    Any idea?

    So what do you think is causing this error after executing mfs_ftp after it returns to the bash prompt?

    bash-2.02# tivosh mfs_ftp.tcl
    bash-2.02# couldn't open socket: address already in use
    while executing
    "socket -server newcsocket $port"
    (procedure "setup_control_socket" line 4)
    invoked from within
    "setup_control_socket $info(port)"
    (procedure "reset_control_socket" line 9)
    invoked from within
    "reset_control_socket"
    (procedure "init_procs" line 13)
    invoked from within
    "init_procs"
    (file "./mfs_ftp.tcl" line 1534)

    You already have mfs_ftp running.

    'ps aux' will show you running processes

    Then why is it closing my connection while transferring?

    Also, the only file I was able to transfer didn't play and looked like it was recording in the Now Playing List.

    My connection is closing whether I use the Windows FTP or FlashFXP (another highly recommended FTP client).

    How do I stop and then restart mfs_ftp.tcl?

    I can see the previous .ty files in my ftp client, but I can't add any new ones to it without the connection failing (including the windows ftp client).

    Anyone have any ideas? I can extract but not return files to the DTivo. The connection closes when I try to return files.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Unless things have recently changed insertion does not work with MS_FTP on 6.2.

    MFS_FTP can be used for extraction, but due to the event handling system being removed in 6.2, insertion doesn't work properly yet. IF you want to use it, comment out the event lines in the appropriate script. I do NOT recommend doing this, as it is known to cause several difficulties for many users. Please see the discussion below in this thread.
    I run 4.0.1b and use tytool soley. I really don't have any need for insertion. However your needs may vary.

    One of the benefits with tytool is it practically does everything. You can pull down a file, makes cuts to it if need be, mux it to vob, created DVD ifo files and then use your favorite burning software to make the dvd.

    Well, based on the previous posts to my thread, it is possible.

    Please show me where in this thread anyone said insertion would work on 6.2 using MFS_FTP. If they said so then you need to follow the directions on what they said to do explicitly.

    Read the entire thread. I was given advice as to how to make it work. I tried everything. I was able to send one file back to the TiVo, but it wouldn't play. Read the entire thread. It would seem that the advice implied that it is possible.
