Connecting TiVo to your secure wireless network

So I just spent an hour trying to properly configure TiVo so that it would connect to my secure wireless network, and here are the details for the next guy searching on Google for this…

Wireless Router: Linksys WRT54G
USB Wireless Adapter: Netgear WG111
Secure Wireless Settings: WEP 128 bits

The problem was that my router was setting the WEP key to the third key choice (I get 4 different keys for each passphrase), and TiVo only works with the first one. The router was also set to ‘Auto’ on Authentication Type on the “Advanced Wireless Settings” screen, and I had to change it to ‘Shared’.

After changing the two things above, my TiVo started working right away and it is now downloading updates.

Web 2.0 my ass

So I’m playing with for a side project, trying to create a <DIV> that will slide into and out of view, but something is not working quite right. When I use the Effect.SlideDown() and then Effect.SlideUp() repeatedly, it will continuously grow the height of the element.

Everything seems to be fine, the documentation tells me that I’m doing the right thing, which is to create two <DIV>s, but somehow it doesn’t work on my version, but it works perfectly at the demonstration page on the website. Even the bug entry about it says that in order to fix it, I should simply use block level elements, which I’m doing.

So here’s the fix for this if someone else ever hits the same problem:

Don’t use:


like a real monkey should to make your HTML code easier to read, but rather this:


Doing that fixes this apparent bug, which makes no sense to me.
