I bought the disk w/enhancements two days ago on recommendation of folks at DDB to upgrade my tcd540040. Since I know nothing of linux, the changes
you mentioned in the top thread are greek to me. Can I get a disk that's been corrected? Or should I have bought InstantCake?
First, I want to upgrade (replace) my 40gb drive with a Maxtor 250 gb.
Then I want to add hacks such as telnet, tivowebplus, etc..
I've read that you can't add the hacks effectively without replacing the prom.
My main objective is to be able to add a .tcl file to allow tivo to control my
oddball sat receiver(change channels).
Where do I go from here?
I know of no hacks available that will allow you network your TCD540040 unit. If there is a public hack available, it may be discussed at DDB, however I've not seen anything about it. If there is a discussion, please provide a link so I can take a look at it.
Regardless, even if you plan on networking an older unit on your own, you will not be able to do so withough some linux knowledge and a good amount or reading and research under your belt.
PTVupgrade does offer networking kits and services for many units, but not the TCD540040.
