Disabling service updates on SA2 TiVo’s

I needed to re-enable service updates on my SA2 TiVo tonight and I’d forgotten how to toggle it after having disabled them when I first hacked my TiVo, and had a tough time finding the information so I figure I’ll post it to my blog so I’ll be able to find it again.

The key command is bootpage – use “bootpage -p /dev/hda” to see the current settings. Then, use “bootpage -P "..." /dev/hda” to change them. Specifically, change “upgradesoftware=false” to “upgradesoftware=true” or vice versa.
