It's in /tvbin
I thought I had blocked updates. now have 3.5c-01-1-1011
anyone have the new echo string to edit tivoapp file to disable encryption?
Not sure if this is the right place to post this since I'm kind of a newbie...but here goes..
To make a real long story short, to fix a local channels problem with my hacked DTivo..I've updated it from software 6.2 to 6.4a. I've got networking back and have Telnet, FTP, and TWP up and running. I had TyTools on it before and trying to get it back. My unit had this on it when I bought it. Through a TON of research, I've got TServer on my box I found a 6.4a patch for the encryption on post #42 of this thread:
I've applied the patch successfully (so it tells me) and I'm able to use TyTools successfully throughout the extraction process up until I'm multiplexing the file. When I do it, the mux'ing process ends almost instantaneously...leaving me with an mpeg that's only a second long. I have a feeling it has something to do with the patch because take a look at the two attached docs I made showing the progress of a newly recorded show and one that successfully mux'ed because it was extracted BEFORE I updated the software and the patch...The one labeled "Old Hack" shows that the type of Tivo detected is an S2..the other one labeled "New Hack" shows an HDTivo. Could this be my problem or is there something else I'm missing that's causing the super short mux'ing on the new setup?
I've searched thread after thread and would REALLY appreciate any assistance to fix this. I will also post this in the Newbie forum in case I'm in the wrong spot here...Thanks!

I could really use someone's help..I'm running 6.4a on my DTivo DSR704 and as seen in the previous post, I'm having problems Muxing extracted shows. I've properly installed the correct encryption patch and have verified that encryption is disabled using the popular CIPHERCHECK utility. I'm also able to use TyTool to access the Dtivo and extract the .ty file. The problem is that it gives me a bunch of error messages when I Multiplex the file. See attached Word Doc with a screen capture of the TyTool GUI:
Mux Error Screen.doc
I've searched all of the extraction threads here along with a TON of others. I've seen where other posters have had this error..but could not find a solution posted by anyone else. Is there anything or anyone that can help? Thanks!
Finally got extraction working again:
Instantcake and PVTNet
Superpatch for 6.4a
Mfs_ftp with all the patches applied
Thought about trying TysuiteJ, but tytompeg worked well so time to get on with life.
Goodbye Tytools. I'll miss you.
P.S. My series 1 running 3.10c (hacked it the hard way back in the day, not instant cake) won't get past satellite initialization. Same Directv program guide data change toast my series 1? Time to get the same model series 2 off of ebay and use the same instantcake cd ($40+$20 ugh!) to get rolling again.
I have recordings on DTV S2 TiVo that I would like insert the recordings in SA 1 TiVo. When I use mfs_ftp Mr. TiVo is not happy and kills mfs_ftp. Is there an easy way to convert my S2 recordings so they can be played on my old SA1 TiVo?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
You may have to convert to MPEG2 and then insert that way. I am pretty sure trying to do this with the .ty files won't work.

There are two types of people in this world: those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't.
