    The VOD doesn't work either, so I'll bet that's it.

    I should be able to:
    Code:
    mv tivoapp tivoapp2.foo
    mv tivoapp.foo  tivoapp
    Then repatch tivoapp without the NoPromos and reboot. (Does that sound sane?)

Since you've flipped back and forth, you should just be sure your loading the right (6,7 now?) partitions by checking it.
    Code:
    bash-2.02# bootpage -b
    No device name given, assuming /dev/hda

    bash-2.02# bootpage -p
    No device name given, assuming /dev/hda
    root=/dev/hda4 dsscon=true console=1,115200 upgradesoftware=false
    bash-2.02#
    My bootpages are as follows:
    Code:
    bash-2.02# bootpage -b                                                                    
    No device name given, assuming /dev/hda
    6
    bash-2.02# bootpage -p

    Some of the logos showed up and some of my online request are bouncing. I think that tomorrow (I have two things taping tonight I don't want to miss) I'll re-patch without NoPromos and redo guided set-up.

    If this all works properly (and works for a few days) I'm going to write a "New newbie" guide on this (and give credit to everyone who has helped me here, if that's okay.)

    UPDATE:I reverted to the original Tivoapp and patched without the NoPromos code and Tivo Search is working again!!!!

    Anyone else have a problem with the delete this recording? edit below? Whenever I get to the end of a recording, my TiVo freezes. Nothing I do short of pulling the power cord out fixes this. Reverting back to original tivoapp and reapplying all edits except that one fixed the problem, but I want that annoying "delete this recording" thing gone! Any help would be appreciated.

    ok the subtract value ix 0x400000
    if i did my math right and i checked twice here are the dd lines


    echo -ne "\x10\x00\x00\xaa" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=1914760
    echo -ne "\x24\x10\x00\x01" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=3621276
    echo -ne "\x10\x40\x00\x26" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=7941976

    Below is a pic of my computer running windows 7 connected via usb to the tivo hard disk while its still in the tivo (tivo powered down of course) with the tivo partitions mounted via ubuntu 9.1 running in virtualbox. Normally I'd just do it without ever taking the cover off of the tivo but in my infinite wisdom I forgot to replace iptables when I did this. Needless to say, the tivo just went into a reboot loop. Ergo, extra steps were necessary.
    I would never have thought to do this. This really beats removing the drive, removing the holder then mounting it in a USB enclosure then having to reverse those steps to put it back.

    You one smart feller...

    Back in the day when I was hacking my THD by pulling the drive, what I did was just swap the drive cables inside the THD so that the primary drive was external. I then put the drive in an Antec MX-51 eSATA enclosure. Hacking the drive is then just a matter of shutting down the TiVo, taking the enclosure over to the PC, and plugging in the enclosure into an eSATA port in the computer. I did the same with my S3, but with the S3, one has to cut holes in the case and install a pair of SATA / eSATA adapters.
