    Question do i still monte on dsr 704?

    This sound like a stupid question, but do I still need to monte on a dsr704?
    I reimaged the drive for 6.2 software on to a 300gb hard drive. I used alphawolf's mini-image.

    monte is not a requirement for any tivo, though it can have advantages. you can just use a straight killhdinitrd'd kernel.

    Either 3.1.5 or 7.2.2-oth-K1 for 6.2 software (you need a Linux 2.4.20 kernel).

    Can you explain this please? Are those kernels part of that version of linux?

    The kernel that came with TiVo OS 3.1.5 and TiVo OS 7.2.2 are both Linux 2.4.20 Kernels. Both of them can be used with killhdinitrd.

    TiVo OS 6.2 also uses a Linux 2.4.20 kernel, so you can replace 6.2's version of the 2.4.20 kernel with either the 3.1.5 or 7.2.2 and it'll still work.

    What about DirecTivo 6.4? Does that use a Linux 2.4.20 kernel?

    Also, I was using these instructions to build a serial cable:
    http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/sh...59&postcount=5
    I found which wire corresponds to which section on the stereo plug, but in those directions they are referenced by color and mine are different colors. So how do I know where each one connects on the serial cable?

    serial cable

    You can always just use a multi-meter to find out which wire is which.

    Yes. TiVo OS 6.4 uses a variation of the 2.4.20 kernel, so either the TiVo OS 3.1.5 or TiVo OS 7.2.2 kernel will work with it.

    Unless I'm mistaken, TiVo OS 3.1.5, 6.x, 7.x, 8.x, and 9.x all use a 2.4.20 kernel.
