TiVo and Neuros OSD Interoperability Project - Bounty #2 Discussion
Here's a place to discuss the details of BOUNTY #2 from the TiVo - Neuros OSD interoperability project:
BOUNTY #2 - $2500
This part of the project relates to all Series1 TiVo systems, or Series2 DirecTV TiVo system which have been have been modified for what we call advanced networking functions. Typically, this is done with things like TurboNet and CacheCard bundles on Series1 systems, and PTVnet on Series2 DirecTV TiVo systems, or even using free tools such as The Zipper. We won't go into great detail here, but some references will be provided below. To put it succinctly, if you have a TiVo DVR that has been modified so that you can access it via telnet, ftp, and most importantly, TiVoWebPlus, then you'll understand the next part of this bounty.
Similar to the goal of the first project, we'd like the OSD to record at the same time that your TiVo is recording. Since your modified TiVo will be running TiVoWebPlus, we'd like to see a module for TiVoWebPlus that is easy to install, configure and use, and that will allow a user to select which Season Passes should also be recorded on the OSD. We'd also like to see provisions made so that other items, such as TiVo Suggestions, or manual recordings in the To Do list are also taken into consideration.
Although it is expected that some software may need to be initially installed and configured on the Neuros OSD, we'd like to see the solution to this problem be TiVo-centric enough so that a user can interact with TiVoWebPlus to make changes that are ultimately received by (or transmitted to) the Neuros OSD. This will allow users who are remotely accessing their TiVo units, whether from their desktops, or by using the GoToMyDVR service for remote access to their TiVo, the ability to choose what to record on their OSD.
