    Free space OSD

    Hi - anyone know how to display the tivo's hard drive free space on the TV?
    I'm interested for a S2 running 6.2a
    Thanks
    Two DSR7000s both at 6.4a/101 from slices; both originally sleepered version 3, then 4.01b, 6.2, 6.2a.
    TWP 2.1, Superpatched, 300GB Seagate in one, 750GB in the other, USB 2 w/ Jamie's backport drivers
    One HR10-250 at 6.4a, networked, Superpatched, stock 250GB drive
    One HR23
    Patiently waiting for a new DirecTV/Tivo
    One AM21 hooked to the HR23

    S1 users can use Trickey to run scripts from their remotes, but as of now there's nothing analogous for S2 boxes. Enabling backdoors gives you much more from the Info screen, but I don't ever remember seeing free space there.
    It wouldn't be hard to adapt the Tivowebplus info module to display a free space message onscreen via screentext, but you'd still need to be at a computer to trigger it and I'm guessing that's not what you're looking for.

    yeah, I run TWP too and can get the info there. I was hoping there was something I could get on screen (TV screen) with the remote

    you could hack info.itcl from twp to send output to out2osd or something similar, and then set up a command to use with trickeyplus to display the output on the screen.

    Another option would be to write a script that created/replaced a mail message periodically. That basic code is in TWP as well.

    two excellent ideas, thank you. I've downloaded out2osd and trickeyplus to start playing with them. I'll also check into the mail message piece.
