View Full Version : Control Tivo from command Prompt

I am sure it is possible but I just dont know how. Could some tell me how to control my tivo from either a telnet or ftp session. I can not use the web interface to control it.

you can use sendkey from a telnet or bash prompt to send remote signals

I tried but I keep getting an error. Can you tell me how to use it from a command prompt?
e.g. to send a 30-second skip hack
SendKey livetv t t t s s s play s
SendKey 3 0 s livetv
The t is an abrevaition for the TiVo key, the s is for Select. You can use the whole name if you like. The keys are listed in /tvbin/tcl/tv/sendkey.tcl
Of course you need the SendKey script too.

The problem you'll find with sendkey is that the Tivo often times won't keep up, so some of the commands may get missed.
