Hope this helps a little. I know it can be frustrating even with the great help and guidance on this forum. I probably spent a week of nights getting all the pieces straight for my mom. I also needed to use SchedulesDirect to get her OTA lineup straight. Whew.
Thank you so much Lark888,
I really do appreciate your time and effort and your response. Here is the thing...
I have other replays that I have uploaded RID files to just like you said and "bing blang blaow"I get BOTH the Clock and CPU to toggle...
meaning the files were copied and have new RID codes to use for my set top boxes.
But not on this replay
and not on any of the several images or different hard drives
that I have installed/reformatted/reimaged... on this replay.
Seems that for some reason, that the paths in the shellcmds file are always correct
and edited correctly and even saved using a Unix TextPad program... that this
particular system paths below of the drive do not want to be written to:/name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/
Just never get the second toggle, the cpu meter or whatever toggle I use...
And if I only have toggle commands in the shellcmds file, then all the toggles appear.
Seems like a 'write permissions' problem at this point and could be remotely related
possibly to the fact that the unit was deactivated/no longer authorized etc and only
got it working using the authcommands in WiRNS 3.0
and then later reformatted
and then activated using the AuthActivate_v1.6 in WiRNS 2.1
Henry has helped so much and am still hoping to hear back from him.
Looks like extract_rtv commands are the last hope of writing to the system partition.
Thanks again so much for your time and your help and response and have a Great Christmas.
