7. Writing Code > 90. Extracting Your Now Showing List

Extracting Your Now Showing List

Ask TiVo’s MFS database for your Now Showing List, including title, description, and date and time the show aired.

Curious about what’s showing? Want to keep track of your television viewing habits (or at least what’s been recorded for you) over time? You can ask the TiVo MFS with some pretty trivial data mining. We’ll start with the Now Showing List and everything TiVo knows about the shows we currently have queued up for watching. We’ll write the title, description, and date and time the show aired to a file and save it. You can even automate this using cron [Hack #44] and write the files to your PC’s NFS-mounted [Hack #56] drive if you are truly serious about archiving that data.
