4. Bring the Internet to TiVo > 4.1. Hacks #47-62

Hacks #47-62

While playing with the Bash prompt [Hack #30] on your TiVo is a nice adventure, it’s quite limited in terms of real functionality. In the age of the networking, what we really want is all our devices linked together on the network. We want remote access, not just from a serially connected PC, but from anywhere on the Internet. We want our devices to jack into and talk to one another. And our TiVo should be no less than a first-class citizen.

Your TiVo should be part of your home network. Your desktop computer should be talking to and making requests of your TiVo. Your office computer, a couple of miles down the road, should be doing the same. Even on the go, your laptop—sitting at a WiFi access point in an airport halfway across the world—should be able to call up your TiVo.
