Hack Your Series 2 DirecTiVo Using the Zipper (Page 1 of 5)
Categories: Integrated DVRs
The "Zipper" is one of several methods that can be used to enable certain networking features, such as telnet, FTP, MultiRoom Viewing (MRV), and Home Media Option (HMO), with a Series 2 DirecTiVo. The following assumes you are building a drive from scratch, you know how to enter a static IP address for your TiVo, you know how to and feel comfortable opening the case of your TiVo and computer, and that you are familiar with setting up the IDE connections in your computer. If you do not feel comfortable with those requirements, I recommend you send your TiVo to someone such as DVRupgrade to enable the networkingfeatures for you.
