The Tivo hacking community has been steadily innovating, and the web front end to tivo (like this) is looking pretty good. It seems like it’s only a matter of time before hackers will be able to program and manipulate their tivos remotely over networks. I didn’t think I could take part, but thanks to support for wireless LAN connections, simple instructions, and available products, it just might be do-able by mere mortals as well.
It’ll be interesting to see how Tivo the corporation acts upon these innovations. Will the community’s work be rolled into the future feature set? Is Tivo hacking viewed by the company as exploratory work, with success predicting the path the company’s developers take? Or is it all a lot of sideline antics the company entertains but doesn’t take seriously?
