7. Writing Code > 7.1. Hacks #88-100

Hacks #88-100

We’ve run the gamut of the kinds of tips, tricks, and hacks it takes to become a TiVo power user, but we haven’t taught you to build anything yourself yet. Up to this point, the extent to which you’ve hacked your TiVo’s software has only meant borrowing and running other people’s code.

Let’s change that.

While this chapter will not magically turn you into a TiVo code jockey, it will whet your appetite, providing a reasonable primer on the concepts you’ll need to understand if you’re going to start stringing together pieces of code to suit your purposes. To sit at the feet of the masters, hang out at some of the user forums, such as http://alt.org/forum, devoted to open source TiVo development. Be forewarned, though, that most contributors there are pretty advanced. But that shouldn’t stop you from listening in and learning.
