Portions of a PM that I just sent to Gerry Duprey on the DVArchive Forum:

I try to log onto the DVArchive Forum daily to answer any new questions that may appear. Sadly, none have appeared in months! frown.gif Today, when I attempted to create a new thread / poll, I discovered that the forum was LOCKED...

I'd like to ask why?...

...sadly, the older I get, the less I remember redface.gif . REGARDLESS, I *LOVE* DVArchive smile.gif . *PLEASE* post / inform / E-Mail someone as to your intentions so that they may be offered the opportunity to continue / copy your site as the WiRNS Team did with the Twiki and ReplayTVUpgrade site. IIRC, 2 adamant, devoted ReplayTV supporters (Todd Larason / The ReplayTV Twiki and Gary) have died and the WiRNS Team has taken over their sites.

I realize that no one can stop progress (HDTV vs Analog). But, you have created an EXCELLENT application in DVArchive and I would like to continue using AND supporting it as long as possible, along with Poopli.

Thanks for listening and I hope to hear a reply.

Best Regards...
I may have missed the LOCKED icon previously, but I DEFINITELY noticed it today! eek.gif

IMHO, it appears that the DVArchive Forum is "going away". mad.gif

DVArchive, WiRNS, and Poopli have benefited *MANY* of us during the past decade. And, while, IMHO, the majority of us have also migrated to HDTV, ReplayTV still holds a 'Dear Spot' in our hearts.

Does anyone (i.e. ReplayLurker) have any further information? confused.gif

Thanks! smile.gif

I don't know much about DVArchive, so I don't know why you singled me out. I basically only know a lot about the workings of the ReplayTV itself, more like Todd Larson, but I woudn't consider myself any where near his league.

Folks,

Don't stop in here much anymore. Haven't had working ReplayTVs in prolly 4 years or more. That said, while I don't have any immediate intentions of taking down dvarchive.org, I have locked it to prevent spamming and such (which was becoming a real problem and maintenance). At this point, virtually anything that can be asked about DVA has been asked and answered there, so I'm leaving it up as a resource for those still running ReplayTVs/DVA/etc. I cannot make any promises how long it may be there, but I have no specific plans to take it down at any specific time.

Gerry

Thanks, Gerry! I'm sure I echo the thoughts of many past and present ReplayTV and DVA users: thanks for your support, expertice, and especially, the authoring of an extremely useful utility that continues to serve us faithfully, even in today's primarily digital environment. THANK YOU!

Jim

smile.gifbiggrin.gifsmile.gifTHANKS!!! smile.gifbiggrin.gifsmile.gif
.
Whenever I have a problem, I go there first to check the FAQ and then SEARCH. I'm very happy to hear / read that, although LOCKED, it will remain available for research.

Any suggestions / comments to my to-date unanswered question from Sun Jun 03, 2012 @ 22:38: .
THANKS, in advance, for any help / suggestions / guidance anyone can offer.smile.gif

Gerry -
I'll be happy to port it over to one of my servers, if possible - it should run on a php/linux vhost, right?
