Is there a way to bypass guidedsetup ?
I am actually living in Israel, so I will not be using the programming guide. I just want to use the TiVo as a VCR.
(Mainly I am trying to avoid the network setup).

Hi Gideon,

I don't know the answer for sure but have a couple of things to try:

1. Change the bootpage paramater to remove the GS=1 flag. You could use TiVoWeb to do this ("PAL NTSC" -> "Set PAL") or alternatively use the methods described in this HowTo:


2. /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author includes these lines:

# Keep Guided Setup from bothering us
# Actually, we want GS to bother us...so comment it out
#fixup25.tclYou could uncomment the line with fixup30.tcl.

BTW the TiVo nags you when it doesnt have guide data.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Dave.
