Tivo’s Hidden Web Server

Images-144 Dave Zantz is up to his TiVo hacking tricks again.

    What I think is the most useful part of the embedded server is getting your Now Playing list via XML. Do something like: https://tivoip/TiVoConnect?Command=QueryContainer&Container=%2FNowPlaying&Recurse=Yes to grab the entire thing. You can also manipulate music and photos if you’ve decided to share them. You can get the HME spec at http://tivo.com/developer/i/HmoMusicPhotosSpecv1.1.pdf
