    Showcases and Tivolution Magazine

    Ok, installed xtreme25 and everything seems ok.... But everytime I go to Showcases and Tivolution magazine, it says this product will be available within the next 3 days.. It keeps saying that... How can I get them? Do I have to force another call then run touch again?

    Any help would be great.

    I didnt know he was having the same problem.. sorry..

    It says to get those slice files... but what are the commands I use in bash to patch these files in?

    After I use these slice files will I have to install them every time they change? Or will they automatically get them from tivo?

    You don't have to use the slice files. Go down the thread til you see the post by PGM and use the attached script.

    To make a long story shorter..

    Remove your DSS card.
    Connect your unit to the phone line.
    Tell the unit to make it's daily call now.
    Wait.
    Reset unit by unpluging it for 10 seconds.
    Replace card.

    In a few days you will have your Showcases and TivoMag.



    Worked for me.


    And the answer to your next question is:

    touch /etc/SubTest

    to make a long story even shorter (sorry couldnt resist.. ) PGM's script works AWESOME!! just copy over sc.tcl to your tivo, make it executable "chmod 777 sc.tcl", and run it "./sc.tcl", WALA! showcases and tivomag waiting for you in the morning!

    connecting units to phonelines makes me nervous.. ya know what im saying

    Do you have to do this everyday or will it automatically get them from now on? And what directory do you put it in?

    Thanks

    Once they start it appears they don't stop.

    I thought to make it executable you use +x ??? What does 777 do?

    "chmod 777 sc.tcl"

    or

    "chmod +x sc.tcl"

    Unix has three attributes you can set for a file, and you can apply that to the owner, the group, and the rest of the world. Each attribute has a number.

    READ=4 (r)
    WRITE=2 (w)
    EXECUTE=1 (x)

    So to determine what rights you want to set on a file, you add the numbers. (i.e. Read & Execute would be 5)

    When you do chmod 777, you are allowing read/write/execute rights (4+2+1) to the owner/group/everyone else. If you did a chmod 750, then you'd set full rights for the owner, read/execute for the group, and no access for anyone else. Hope that makes some sense.
