    Can you please post the link to the pandora timeshifting hack?

  • Ray Perkins 8 years ago

    Back in the day RF modulators only allowed you to switch between anteana and the composite input. Then they changed to auto-switching when a composite signal was detected. RF modulators have been off my radar since they started doing this, mixing the antena and modulated composite video.

    My cable company has CSPAN and CSPAN-2 on channels 2 and 4. So the new style RF modulator should filter the incomming channel 2 or 4 signal and insert the composite video on that channel. That is much slicker than the old school modulators.

    I looked into doing this a few years ago, at the time I either these rf modulators didn’t do this or I didn’t think they did. The other option was to get a device that does this but on a selectable high channel (like 88-99). It was more flexible, but cost $150-250.

    Thanks for the tip this is awesome.

    For IR back to the myth box or whatever, I have a home brew IR reciever. I wonder how long of a cat5 run I can get the serial signals to run over? I have cat5 in most spots where I have coax. So I could run lirc on serial over cat5 all throughout the house. I wonder if you can run multiple IR recievers on a single serial port by connecting them in parallel, as long as there is only one singal coming in it might work.

    alright..now i am just rambling…you damn kids with your time shited rf modulated iptv!

  • mrynit 8 years ago

    how do you do the RF to the house cable with out busting open the cable box on your house?

  • David 8 years ago

    Nice to see a segment on TV-Modulation. I was kind of hoping you would do what Perkins said above though; then again like Perkins also said those things [selectable tv modulators] aren’t cheap.

    Though I look forward to what you will bring up next month to control the media center remotely. I can’t do RF because 1) Old house with lead paint and thick walls 2) Too much RF from the city (I was thinking of doing something with speech reg. over mobile radios–got some programming experience)

    Keep up the good work!

  • Excellent show, as usual. Loved the Tiki Bar bit. See you next month.

  • Any programs that timeshift live365?

  • P-access 8 years ago

    Another great episode. It’s time to ask if I can get H.5 put on the public access channel in Silicon Valley . .

  • I found the mdf for the cable at my apartment building several years ago, i’m buying an rf modulator to pipe out Hak5 throughout my apartment buildings

  • Andrew 8 years ago

    I would be willing to pitch in 5 bucks to help get a Hak.5 iPod 5G… just a thought. Darren if you put up a donation link for those of us who would be willing to give you guys a little gift and make our iTunes Hak.5 episodes work better.

  • HoodedRobin i mean that im at skool, which mean that my ass will get beating if i dl it there, yes even threw a proxy and encrypting, they monitor my downloaded usage:( the ep downloaded fast (at home), like in 20 mins :D, just had 2 be at skool2 day, but its all good now:D:D:D home now gona watch the ep, :D:D remba
    Seed them torrents ;)

  • hey, great show! I wish there was more hacking physical things…. love the cable box deal! still looking for the Tiger disk to run on PC. anyway, loved the show. keep up the good work. I live in richmond, VA if you guys need any help making your show more nerdy. CYA!

  • below par!!

    Started off quiet well, better safe this before fading.

    All the best guys!!

  • ShinmaRyuu 8 years ago

    That is a good idea on the donation for a iPod w/Video. Maybe keep a list of everyone who donates and draw a name to give a T-shit autgraphed by the whole crew as a prize. The 30Gig version is not that much and i think if we all pitch in we could make it happen.

  • loved the ending seems like sum one drank 99 fosters ;)

  • Awesome work guys! I liked the spoof on tikibar tv.

  • Rocold 8 years ago

    YES… I can’t wait for next month. I’m pretty sure I mentioned doing a Geocashing segment in the forums (RIP) I’ve been waiting for someone out there in the IPTV world to do this.

  • Where’s the link to the pandora time-shifting program? The video says there will be a link to it, and people are asking for it, but it hasn’t shown up.

  • Calderbankw 8 years ago

    I neeeeeeeeeed that link. Please Post it here soon :D

  • Ditto here, waiting for the Pandora time-shifting program.
    Another great show, thanks guys and thanks for bringing Ali back to the 640×480 screen :-)

  • cooper 8 years ago

    Interesting to see that that forum server’s SSL certificate is made out to ‘Snakeoil’. Seriously guys, start over. You’re in danger of losing your community…

  • Barron Von Gina 8 years ago

    I have searched all of google for the Pandora app with no luck. I hope to see it soon, it could really help me out on those long commutes

  • Seriously, why hasn’t the link been posted?

  • Thanks for the link!

    Have all the posts been lost from the previous forum or is this just a temp. one?

  • Rocold i have seen IPTV Geocashing, let me c what show it was….hmmm aaa hacktv i think it was that…http://www.binrev.com/hacktv/ yer it was. o yer Hack tv is a really good hard core iPTV show like Hak5, execpt they realses arnt verry consistant :(

  • Here is an applescript that can be used to save files from pandora
    you need to point to the the tmp folder “/private/tmp” create an alias
    of it to access it easier.
    select the track named WebKitPlugInStream…… with is a couple of MB and have safari opened on the pandora page.
    careful they use preloading so the song playing is bot always the latest files in the tmp folder so you will have to wait to get the true filename that is in the tab as they have disabled the title in the webpage source.
    There is probably ways to this better but at least you control what you save. Someone probably get an applescript that gets the id3 tag and make this even better.
    enjoy

    set chosenfile to choose file with prompt “Choose a document:”
    property DEBUG : false
    tell application “Safari”
    activate

    set windowName to my GetWindowName()
    if DEBUG then display dialog windowName
    my give_window_focus(windowName)
    end tell
    on give_window_focus(window_name)
    tell application “System Events”
    tell process “Safari”
    perform action “AXRaise” of window named window_name
    end tell
    end tell
    end give_window_focus

    on GetWindowName()
    tell application “Safari”

    — I prefer to bookmark the tabs in just the front window:
    return ((name of window 1) as string)
    my give_window_focus(windowName)
    end tell

    end GetWindowName
    tell application “Safari”
    ignoring case
    set theTitle to (name of window windowName)
    end ignoring
    end tell

    tell application “Finder”
    ignoring case
    set name of chosenfile to (theTitle & “.mp3″)
    set theFolder to choose folder with prompt “Pick folder to move the selected tracks to”
    tell application “Finder”
    try
    move file chosenfile to theFolder
    end try
    end tell
    end ignoring
    end tell

    Hey Rag
    Nice that you take the time and trouble to provide the script for timeshifting pandora files.
    I have a mac (or several)
    But the /private/tmp folder you talk about is nowhere to be found on my mac 8and you know how easy it is to search for a folder on a mac..even i can do it) the track named WebKitPlugInStream is also not to be found… on any of my macs.. am i missing something… thx..

  • http://www.recordpandora.com seems to work pretty good…
