Newbie telnet question re: Mac OS X terminal
This isn't Tivo specific but I hope someone knows this off the top of their head.
When I telnet into Tivo from Mac OS X, every character I type is echoed back to me so that they show up once when I type them and once when the tivo sends them back. Everything works if I make no typos.
Likewise I can paste commands into the terminal and they execute fine.
Is there a command that I can issue to stop this behavior. I can't see anything in my terminal preferences that looks like it could control this. My choices of emulation are: xterm, xterm color, vt52, vt100, vt102, ansi, dtterm, rxvt.
Thanks for the off topic reply
Most unix systems can reliabily work with VT100 or VT102 emulation. But the issue you describe about repeated letters means you have 'local echo' turned on somewhere.
Unfortunately, I don't have OSX (my Mac experience stopped somewhere back at System 7.5) so I can't help much. You can try this http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=25375 and see if it helps your situation.
telnet -K solves the problem
You could also try just running the telnet command and setting the options before connecting to your tivo. [Since this is NOT collection from a Mac, your milage may vary]
telnet > display <<<--- You may also try mode line
Escape Character is 'CTRL+]'
WILL AUTH (NTLM Authentication)
Sending both CR & LF
WILL TERM TYPE
Preferred Term Type is ANSI
telnet > open my.tivo.ip.addess
Essentially see what you can set for your telnet client.
Excellent. telnet -K did the trick.
