I don't know how but my Hackman took a dump. It was working fine for MONTHS and then all of a sudden... nothing. I wasn't mucking around in there at all.

I can still telnet in and get programs with tytools but no hackman. I really don't want to re cake the drive as I'll loose all my programs.

Tips on reinstalling hackman? I see there's a new version so maybe I can install that?

It's a DirecTivo HDVR2 (Hughes)

HALP!!! Cry

Look here for a new version.

TechLore Blog

HR10-250, Samsung SIR-S4120R, SIR-S4080R, 2 Philips DSR704s (one connected to a Slingbox A/V). One box used the "Zipper"; rest used PTVnet to enable networking features.

Thanks Yog but I can't even get it to come up in a browser. I tried GoToMyDVR tells me the unit is disconnected.

I think I have to re cake / PTV it... dammit!

Can it be done without losing anything?

Ok folks. for the benifit of those who may have the same trouble, I was able to recover from this without losing my programs!

I just downloaded tivowebplus and Hackman 2.0, deleted the old directories odd of my DirecTivo and used SmartFTP to upload the unzipped files.

I'm back in business! I have full Hackman and TyTools access to my Tivo.
