This post is relevant.
i am wondering if i hack the s3, can i clone the sn of my other s3? i know this was possible with the directivo unit.
the reason, i was hoping to use my 2nd s3 for mrv without activating it. i think it is bs that i cant use mrv if both units are not subbed. i would like to be able to watch in my bedroom what is recorded on my subbed s3.
Ugh, for the millionth time... no, it can't be done.
Can you tell me about the TWP interface on the TivoHD/Series3? I want to initiate copies (TTGB) from the pc to the tivo without having to be in front of my tivo or having to make my wife stop watching while I do it.
With MFS_FTP, on Series 1's, I could just use an ftp client to move them around. If TWP includes the TivoDesktop-served shows in the Now Playing list, then I can select them and start transfers without ever touching the remote control.
replace_initrd and the null-linuxrc.img.gz file. I usually use a usb stick.
Hopefully this will help someone else ... hacked drives wouldnt boot took me a long time pulling drive doing hack one step at a time... reinstalling drive reboot.. repeat.
to determine that my bootpage was the culprit and the serial port on the series 3 tivos is on PORT 1 not PORT 2 so the following bootpage that myself and probably many other past series 2 or tivo hackers are familiar with will Not boot at all
root=/dev/hda7 dsscon=true console=2,115200 upgradesoftware=false
make sure you set it to
root=/dev/hda7 dsscon=true console=1,115200 upgradesoftware=false
not I just need to get the damn cable company to get the pay channels working again on my cable cards..
Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!
thanks i read that and that is how i found this out.. but thought it should be in this thread as it didn't specifically mention that the box wont even book if you have the wrong port in your bootparms..
also as a side note other people here have gotten comcast working with cable cards and pay channels on a hacked box correct?
just making sure it is only a coincidence that when I got the larger hacked drives in my 2 boxes no pay channels are working on the cablecards and not something to do with the hacking the kernel.. (other channels work fine) just not hbo/showtime/hbohd etc.
thanks in advance
re: this message in the logs.. makes me wonder if it knows we turned off encryption and hacked the kernel and that is why they are not working:

I personally prefer to cleanup the startup scripts to suppress messages that reveal the presence of a hacked PROM.
do you have the modified startup scripts that you hacked.. thanks that would save me time because I know it uploads many of these logs to tivo..
also you don't have any contacts at comcast ie phone number that can be used as reference do you.. don't know if i am that patient damn
You'll need to deal with your local folks for provisioning the cable head-end, as far as I know.also you don't have any contacts at comcast ie phone number that can be used as reference do you.. don't know if i am that patient damn
