View Full Version : Am I on the legacy emulator or not?

Hi guys,

Kind of dumb question I know, but I simply don't remember what I did last time I rebuilt my Tivo. Is there an easy way to tell?

If its a clue, the reason I ask is that the new Documentary channel hasn't appeared yet, and I got to wondering if this is why.

Count how many sky box office channels you have, if you don't have the new 68-74 channels you are most likely on the lagacy emulator.

To verify look at your /etc/tclient file, look at the line starting 127:: and see if the last number in the line is 80 (the port). If it is you are legacy.

If the last number is 8000, go into channels you receive and added the new channel, it was added to the current emulator (8000 weeks ago), but its a manual headend recompile for the legacy system which hasn't been done yet.
