4. Bring the Internet to TiVo > 59. Turning Your TV into a Virtual Window

Turning Your TV into a Virtual Window

It’s raining in Boston, and you’re stuck inside for the day. Take a virtual trip to a far-off tropical locale, without ever leaving your recliner.

It’s winter time, and you’re sitting at home, freezing, and wishing desperately that you could be some place warmer. While your TiVo is not going to beam you up to a tropical locale, perhaps it can provide some virtual heat.

The TiVo Home Media Option (HMO) [Hack #63] allows you to display a slideshow of your digital photos right on your television set. What about putting up live pictures from the Web, perhaps of some place you would rather be? Thanks to the dual miracles of webcams and wget [Hack #54], you can do just that.
