View Full Version : Accessing tivo from XBMC (xbox) via python scripts

05-05-2004, 04:59 PM

I stream from my tivo to XBMC on my xbox, using ccxstream.

I'm sure I read a post a few months back from somebody who had successfully written a python script for XBMC that did some simple tivo activities remotely over the network, e.g. delete recordings, schedule, etc.

Does anyone have a link to this code?

Now that python support is in XBMC and XBMC plays .ty files, the possibilities are endless! We could code an entire remote GUI for the tivo in XBMC !

You can get it here http://www.xboxmediaplayer.de/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.pl?act=ST;f=21;t=2398

I've been meaning to go back and rewrite it for ages now, mainly because i don't like the interface.

Thanks Burriko!

I'm off to test it now... ...will report back...

Burriko rides again!

It works a treat! As you say in the readme, basically an interface to tivoweb, but why re-invent the wheel?

What would be nice would be:

- Order shows alphabetically
- Better display of upcoming recordings, e.g. date/time/show
- Click on a show to get the episode description
*** (the biggie - this would be AWESOME) ***

I might have a go at some of this, but I'm quite new to python. I would certainly be happy to beta test.

Perhaps we'd have to write a client-server app to do this though.. ..or maybe we could do it via a custom tivoweb module, e.g. http://tivo/remoteAdmin/showInfo.tcl?show=.... and so on...

i'm double posting to here and the other forum at xboxmediacenter so I'll just post there from now on to avoid confusion
