Discussion in 'DIRECTV DVR with TiVo Discussion' started by Mark Holtz, Dec 8, 2011.
Would you write them a request for publish the new TiVo kernel and modules ?
Why would Weaknees have the TiVo kernel and modules?
I wonder - do we even know that the THR22 runs Linux?
AFAIK, almost everyone's DVR's run some version of Linux....
Want a bigger drive open it and replace the 500gb with a 2TB that is all weaknees does, not hard people have been doing it for years.
Before SoC it was a little more involved.
Now for the obligatory comment.
Unless you own the receiver this would be a violation of Part II of the Lease Addendum (Link).
If while you have it open something goes wrong you could be on the hook for $250 for the damaged equipment.
It's easier to just add an eSATA drive. You get the storage you want, it takes much less time, a lot less work, and no potential issues with a damaged receiver.
How do you know? We know about TiVo, of course, but what evidence is there that DirecTV's (non-TiVo) DVRs do? Does DirecTV publish its modifications to the Linux kernel as TiVo (often belatedly) does? There are many options for real-time and embedded operating systems and they're not all Linux.
Well known fact.
Searching by keyword "GPL" would give more, like the thread http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=82621
As stated in the other threads, to update. The MX-1 did not work on my unit. I had to open my THR-22, and insert the drive that way, in opposition to my lease agreement. Oh well.
Others have had their MX-1 enclosures work to great success, so YMMV apparently. Also, take note that the MX-1 is in very very short supply now, not sure if Antec has discontinued it, or there was a production issue.
There is best replacement for MX-1 - TT BlacX.
Does anyone else take issue with the drive being fulling exposed in the BlacX?
