Well, there are several reasons why you would like to have access to the Bash shell.

Main reason for me: because you can.

Second reason: because I would like to change the internal clock of the TiVo.

Before you start: read the article on how to access the TiVo using a serial cable. Follow the entire procedure, including the "first contact" part, which I will not copy here once more, because I don't like to read things twice.

Don't forget to read the Disclaimer!

TiVo - Personal Video Recorder

First Contact Continued

In the article on how to access the TiVo using a serial cable you finished with the First Contact. On this page we continue that journey.

So you have the debug mode active now, and you see this little menu:

B - Boot from disk
N - Network (tftp) boot
X - print extended menu
->

No enter a "B" so the system will boot. The window of your terminal program will show this or something that looks pretty similar:

B - Boot from disk
N - Network (tftp) boot
X - print extended menu
->b
Loading boot image from partition 6

... and wa-do-ya-know ... we're in the Bash right now.
