I had a lot of things out of the ordinary - well 3 - but I was able to solve them and have a 300G networked HDVR2. Most of this is thanks to the zipper.
A few people here feel better about themselves when others have problems and then come crap on their threads. Then they ask to be left alone - that sure makes sense doesn't it?
Anyway, here is the end to my story - http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/sh...t=51796&page=2
I would like to thank Captain Ass Clown for pushing me to see this through. Rest easy, I'm not trying to join the Secret Tivo Club - or even learn the handshake. You are still way smarter than I am. With just a couple more Captain Ass Clowns, you can stand in a circle and pat each other on the back.
Don't worry about me asking anymore questions. I will help you keep this site stagnant by leaving now.
In all fairness, many tried to help. Thanks for that.
