I know the ffp can be a pita, so I just need a quick sanity check...
I tried a ffp yesterday for about 2 hours, even going through the giant pain of connecting it directly to the ethernet port of my cable modem (rebooting it of course) with no joy.
Has anyone tried this recenty? Does it still work?
I see the DNS names are still alive. I tried a WGET to the software update address I discovered back in 2014, but I didn't see the 302 redirect I saw back then. Probably not a big deal.
Has anyone had any success with booting / writing these 4 files directly
using any linux tools?
I run a local DNS server so I suppose it is possible I can spin up web server listening on port 34006 and spoof the dns to point to my local server for swu.mc1.dgosvc.com, kinda an even bigger pita that I'd just rather not do.
There are several jumpers on the mainboard (and a reset button), does anyone know if one of them can force the rmadisk boot sequence without requiring the ffp?
Spectrum in my area has moved to a completely digital deployment (Requiring provider owned equipment). I dusted off the 3 Tuner Moxis and Mates I had shelved in the basement, because I just couldn't get rid of them for some reason) One Moxi I had modified to a 2TB WD Black drive some time ago when the original Seagate crapped out - That guy is still fine. The other Moxi has the original Seagate 500 MB drive in it and is in need of a serious replacement, poor guy can't run reliably for more than a day and the seek/writes are so loud.
