Just got passed this link from a buddy. It's a Java interface to drive ReplayTV units. Quite nice, actually. Might make a nice PC-side client for TWP.

pc side client to do what?

Drive playback, HMO-type transfer, that sort of thing. I'm still looking at it to see what we can gain. The screenshots look nice and things like the multi-window sorting/linking of lists and folders being handled on the client-side make for a nicer interface. It's got me wondering what can be done with scripting on the clients if they interface with TWP. If TWP served pages with Javascript, "prettified" processing would be done by the CPUs on the browser clients.

well, come to that, you could embed tcl in web pages & let them execute client side if you were allergic to java :p


tridge's vserver can provide clients complete access to the tivo hd. nfs, samba, ftp, extract, insert, mfstool, HMO, whatever, could be implemented off-tivo

with a tivosh/kmem daemon (pretty simple really) clients could have full access to the tivosh/kernel environment


been playing with these kinda toys for a few years but haven't really found a killer app to write yet
