    Sticky - What to do if your Guide data does not show up

    downloaded the appropriate slices (PAY TV, FTA, Digital etc etc)


    Get them onto the TIVO
    ftp them to tivo /var/hack/guide (or Zmodem)

    then loaded the slices
    cd /var/hack/guide;
    tivosh /var/hack/bin/dbload30.tcl output.xxx.slice
    tivosh /var/hack/bin/dbload30.tcl output.xxx.FTA.slice
    cd /hack/bin
    tivosh fixup30.tcl
    tivosh force_index30.tcl
    touch /var/timestamp

    This will then take a few hours to start showing up in the Browse sections etc.

    regards

    updated method if you have a good Internet Connection

    If your TIVO has a connection to the Internet then you can do the following

    1) Telnet to TIVO (i use PUTTY, YMMV)
    2) cd /hack/guide

    Now work out what slice files you want - based on the program sources you have and your location.

    Also note that slices are uploaded to Minnie as follows:
    Friday each week - guide data for Sat, Sun, Mon
    Monday each week - guide data for Mon-Sat

    Once the new slice file has been generated the old one is moved to either
    a) TiVo/files/slices/lastFrislices or
    b) TiVo/files/slices/lastMonslices

    3) wget -t 5 -nv -nd -S http://131.244.9.101/TiVo/files/SLICENAME1
    4) If required wget -t 5 -nv -nd -S http://131.244.9.101/TiVo/files/SLICENAME2
    5) dbload30.tcl SLICENAME1
    6) dbload30.tcl SLICENAME2
    7) fixup30.tcl
    8) force_index30.tcl

    You can then delete the slice files if you wish
