So..., a limited "ReplayTV Elite Clique
" (possibly unrelated to the current Encryption and El Gamal Signature
') has had access to this file since (at least) 2005-04-23 @ 14:28 EDT
[aka the Gurus *GENEROUSLY* revealed their hand and then DNNA *SUDDENLY* changed the rules!
I find it INTERESTING that LaHo
goes LIVE / BETA and a "Hacked" 144 (CA/IVS for 55xx)
*FINALLY* gets released and 'almost
' IMMEDIATELY, the DNNA EPG resumes (pre 06/15/11). KenL
It's TOO late (today / tonight here in Central NJ), and I'm TOO tired to find and LINK to your earlier (today) post that I remember reading, but, *YES*, I too fear a 'possible
' (aka Conspiracy Theory
) *NEW* DNNA *LOCKDOWN* software. Thus, *ALL* of my ReplayTVs are now pointing to my 'flakey
' Dell 400SC with WiRNS 2.x with "No Software Update
"! When I got a "Round Tuit
", I always planned to have WiRNS 'filter
' the STUPID lineup that Comcast (and, AFAICT, *ALL* the others!) provided - i.e. *ALL* their available channels, whether *YOU* subscribe to / receive them or not - into just what you *ACTUALLY* receive. The 06/15/11 'EPG Announcement' was just the *PUSH* that I needed.
It will certainly be interesting to follow how today's "180
" pans out.

Yeah, BUT, it's *REALLY* more 'professional
' to IDENTIFY different versions of a 'program / file
' with a different version number / name.

I don't know which file needs to be patched to change the version number (it looks like it is stored as a long unsigned integer), although I do see the text "ReplayTV Software Version" and "Built on" (among others) in one of the binary files.
For the most part (as of ~6PM EDT today), this has all become MOOT!
Probably, 144 "Hacked" (from 2005)
would *NEVER* have ever been released to the public without the "EPG Announcement".
*IF*, after today's *UNBELIEVABLE*
event, this file still works, and can be "Activated
", one of "us
" (you, me, someone else reading this post), as a personal challenge, should look into how to update the version for the 411-ZONES screen.Bottom Line: THANK YOU Ryan!
[Although I could have used 140 on my two 55xxs, I *DO* appreciate your releasing 144 "Hacked" (from 2005)
[What a strange day this has turned into... FIVE hours and I'm still reading / thinking / posting / drinking my "Favorite Beverage" / not eating...
- SO SAD for the ReplayTV Gurus that invested SO MUCH of their personal time to reach a solution only to have the problem eliminated.
- SO SAD for the LaHo folks that invested COLD HARD CASH to provide a solution for the "Technically-Limited" ReplayTV owners only to have the problem eliminated.
- SO HAPPY for the "Technically-Limited" ReplayTV owners that now have to do *NOTHING*.
- SO CONFUSING for the "Technical" ReplayTV owners that see no "Rhyme-or-Reason" for DNNA's reversal.
