TiVoWeb functionality with no service?
I just ordered a refurb 112 and spare boot drive, and am going to add a TurboNet card to archive shows to my PC for my own personal use ONLY.
I'm interested in using the TiVo in "boat anchor mode": no service, just running as a digital, networked high quality VCR. Will TiVoWeb let me remotely program the unit (based on time/channel/duration, obviously, with no program guide), or will it fail to work altogether?
If the latter, is it possible to add the functionality to do simple programming? I'm an accomplished programmer (although not in Perl or Tcl).
oops. . .
Oh yeah: also, it seems like one can write plugins for TiVoWeb. Are these all written in Tcl?
