5. TiVo and the Web > 72. Emulating the TiVo Remote

Emulating the TiVo Remote

TiVoWeb sports a working image map of a TiVo remote control that you can actually use to control your TiVo.

Cat got your remote? If so, for all but the latest models (the Series 2 DirecTiVo features a rudimentary control panel on the box itself) you’re TiVo-less for the foreseeable future. Sure, you can purchase another at the TiVo Store (http://store.tivo.com/Search.bok?category=Accessories), but what will you do in the meantime?

While at first blush it may seem rather asinine, TiVoWeb’s Web Remote (choose Web Remote from the main screen or toolbar) might just save primetime. Web Remote is fully functional, clickable, image-mapped picture of your TiVo remote control (see Figure 5-21). And that’s your own remote control, mind you, not just a generic model; TiVoWeb actually goes to the trouble of choosing the right image for the right TiVo model.
