I just installed A8 (my first version), and here is my take on the installation from a Java noob :
The Java version available is now 1.4.2_01 (probably _02 by the time I type this!). You might give people an idea of which file they should download at those two sun.com sites: there are a bunch of things to choose from for each platform, and the one I picked wasn't the first in the list.
I tried to install Java, and it failed with an Error 1722 (I think that was the number). I uninstalled it, set up the Path addition, and tried again. Installed fine. Advanced Imaging installed ok.
I killed TiVo Server and all that, ran JavaHMO, and it WORKED! The script you run is run.cmd, not run.bat, but I figured that out. I shut it all down and used the GUI to update my location, etc and when I cranked it back up, everything was there for my location.
Does anyone know how to keep TiVo Server from trying to come up on boot? I think I have to switch back to it briefly and tell it not to autoload (it's not in the Windows/Startup folder). I already disabled the Beacon.
My first reboot it couldn't start up the JavaHMO service. Nothing crashed, but the I got nothing on the TiVo. I had to install a new fan, so the next time I rebooted, it started the service ok. Currently everything works as advertised.
Thanks for a GREAT program... right now I mostly just use the weather part, but I'm sure I'll use more later.
