As a note, I am 100% back on schedule and have issued a new PROM Date of Saturday, March 22nd.
I have tried to the best of my ability to address any issues with the recent delays. If for some reason one of you has been overlooked, please do not hesitate to let me know.
TTL cables are still backlogged and are being sent to people in order of the requests.
I've finally got a small handful of TTL adapters completed. I'll try to get some pictures up tonight or tomorrow so you can all see the horrible hackjob. ;-)
Just thought I'd update everyone on the next and following PROM Days. The next one is April 5th, and the next one should either be the 22nd or the 29th. This may change, and it may be pushed back further.
As we move forward the number of PROM Days will probably decrease in frequency. But we will see how that goes.
Also, in case anyone is interested I've got about 5 TiVo HD TTL adapters that I've assembled, and they're available for $50.
The high price of the cables from this batch reflects the unreasonable amount of labor required to assemble them using the current design, and I am currently toying with a design that would potentially reduce the amount of time needed to assemble the adapters. For now, these are being made available to those who really need a better way of debugging any broken hacks outside of pulling the drive and rehacking from scratch.
I was cleaning out some my old equipment boxes and I also just found 4 PC-TiVo null modem cables that are ready for use with a factory serial jack or one of my serial jacks. We'll say $10 for these.
I'm doing some spring cleaning over the next week so expect to see odd things coming up for sale here... ;-)
Rather than go down this path in the future, I will simply delete any message that has already been answered in the first two posts of this thread.Originally Posted by lojos1932
Don't let mentally arthritic cretins like the poster in this exchange rattle you. If he's been around 62 years and hasn't bothered to learn better manners and better grammar than that, then there's little you could do for him, let alone should do for him.
With guys like this around, it's little wonder some foreigners think Americans are arrogant and stupid.
I've moved the next PROM Day to April 19th, with the next one being TBD. Most likely it would be in May.
I am once again out of TTL cables for the TiVo HD. If there are enough requests for them I'll make some more, but for the moment it's a fairly labor intensive process.
Im up for a JUNE date, once LOST is over for the season. I could've done 04/19 if I'd paid attention...
