5. TiVo and the Web > 79. Starting TiVoWeb with TiVo

Starting TiVoWeb with TiVo

You certainly don’t want to have to start TiVoWeb from the command line every time you reboot your TiVo. Instead, have it start up when TiVo boots.

Getting the TiVoWeb server to start automatically when you boot your TiVo itself is just a matter of adding the right invocation to the initialization system.

You’ll need command-line access to your TiVo Section 3.3. Once you’re logged in, be sure that the root partition is mounted read/write:

            mount -o remount,rw /

Next, you’ll simply append the same command used to start TiVoWeb [Hack #65] manually to the startup script, /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, like so:

            echo "/var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb" | cat /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
