Thread: Uprade to TivoWebPlus

    Uprade to TivoWebPlus

    Hi

    Am trying to upgrade using the instructions on minnie - so far I have:

    1/ Dowloaded the zip file
    2/FTP'd extracted zip file to var/hack

    Then when I Telnet.....

    [TiVo [p0] ~]# cd /var/hack
    [TiVo [p0] /var/hack]# tar -zxvftivowebplus-v1.3.1-060913.tgz

    The response I get is....

    tar (child): Cannot open archive tivowebplus-v1.3.1-060913.tgz: No such file or directory
    tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    [TiVo [p0] /var/hack]#


    I am sure I must be missing something REALLY simple, any suggestions would be welcomed.

    What do you get if you try:

    [TiVo [p0] /var/hack]# ls -l tivo*

    It looks like the '.tgz' is missing from the end of the file when you copied it across.

    [TiVo [p0] /var/hack]# ls -l tivo*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 1495040 Oct 21 13:03 tivowebplus-v1.3.1-060913.tgz


    Also you don't have the most recent release. I have updated the wiki with the newest stable release. I suggest you download that version and copy it across and try again.

    Peter.

    Ps tivoweb-tcl has nothing to do with TiVoWebPlus, it's the install directory of the TiVoWeb installation that is included with the OzTiVo image.

    Thanks Peter. Have tried all you suggested - it seems when I download the .tgz zip onto my hard drive it does not unzip as a ".tgz" extention - this is puzzling as all I do is right click the link in your post on minnie.

    Any ideas? - plus as I am still something of a novice, is rebooting the Tivo the only way to re-start tivoweb?

    Thanks

    MIchael

    Don't do any unzipping on your PC that will also cause problems.

    Just copy the file you download from Minnie to your TiVo as it is.
