Problem with telnet / terminal

    Wierdest thing has started to happen when I telnet to my TiVo

    The character I type is displayed twice in the terminal, but only relayed to the TiVo once.

    ie, i type pwd and ppwwdd appears on the display, but the TiVo responds to the command correctly.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this? I am on MacOS X 10.3.4 if that makes any difference, and it has worked fine previously! I assume I need to change the telnet settings, but I have no idea how to do this!

    Here is a copy direct from the terminal window:

    Paul-Davies-Computer:~ pauldavies$ telnet
    Connected to
    Escape character is '^]'.
    bash-2.02# llss^M
    bash: ls: command not found
    bash-2.02# ppwwdd^M

    Local echo is turned on. You have to turn it off.

    How to turn off echo for Tivo in Telnet for Mac OS X

    instead of telnet use telnet -K - the -K stops auto login to the remote system - I think the setup goes wrong if it tries to do it.
