3. The TiVo Shell > 41. Putting Text on the Screen

Putting Text on the Screen

Ever wanted to add your own Closed Captioning to a television show? Here is your chance.

Have you ever wanted to mute your television show and put words in the mouth of the actor or actress? Maybe you just want to translate the dialog into another language. Or, more maliciously, have you ever wanted to insert your own subliminal messages into a television show? If so, then I have a utility for you.

One possible way to do this is to create an image and use osdwriter [Hack #41], but what a pain that would be. Imagine creating an image in Photoshop, copying it over to TiVo [Hack #36], and then invoking osdwriter every single time you want to put a new line of text on the screen. Ouch!
