    I realise that you don't need to specify an ip address on the command line, the reason for doing so is to simulate what the daily call will do. If it works on the command line then i'll have more confidence that it'll work in the daily call.

    You guys rock!! It went to 'succeeded' and the date/time is correct and I now have guide data for channels 2,9 and SBS! Don't know what has happened to 7 and 10 - hopefully they are just a bit slow..?

    Either way - fantastic work, thank you so much for your help!!!

    Melissa.


    [TiVo [p0] ~]# cat /etc/ntpdate_local_ip
    cat: /etc/ntpdate_local_ip: No such file or directory
    [TiVo [p0] ~]# rw
    File system is now READ/WRITE.
    [TiVo [p0] ~]# echo "132.163.4.103" > /etc/ntpdate_local_ip
    [TiVo [p0] ~]# ro
    File system is now READ ONLY.
    [TiVo [p0] ~]# ntpdate -v -b 127.0.0.1
    oztivo ntpdate $Revision: 1.21 $
    Locally configured IP address: 132.163.4.103
    Our postcode is 03000. Found matching timezone Australia/Melbourne
    Offset 36000 for timezone EST, daylight saving is 0

    Thats cool, just I know it will work both ways.

    Good news Melissa.

    What suburb are you in, so I can add Netspace to my PITA ISP's list.

    I'm in Richmond, Melbourne.

    Any idea why i wouldn't have the guide data for channel 7 and 10? Also, am i going to have all sorts of trouble each time there is a software update?!

    Cheers,
    Melissa.

    When was you last daily call?

    If before 5pm ESDT today, force one now and post your otclient log once successful.

    Yes you will have problems with update, but we can overcome them.

    cd /etc
    cat update_exclude

    This will list the contents of that file, if it exists. Post the details here.

    If it doesn't exist, the use your editor of choice to make a new file called update_exclude

    remember to use rw to make the system read/write first.

    Paste the following into it.

    /hack/etc/emuProxyZA.conf
    /etc/ntpdate_local_ip

    save the file, and use ro to make system read only.

    I have also some questions on TiVo software. Who will be able to help me? But I will need someone from my location https://worldpostalcode.com/united-states/texas/austin. It would be ideal if we could meet offline. I have some ideas and I need a skillful developer to help me implement it. I have started it partially but have stuck at one stage and cannot move forward.
