TiVo’s Home Media Engine has launched and with it a whole new avenue of TiVo development has opened up. Most interesting to me of course is that included with the SDK is documentation describing the HME protocol (refer to
doc/hme-protocol.pdf in the SDK archive). This means that .NET developers won’t necessarily be left out, once someone writes a .NET implementation of the protocol AND the implements the various helper classes to ease development.
We should also be able to use the already written simulator until a time comes that one is written in .NET.
So does that mean I’m gonna start such a project? We’ll see… 😀
Update: Well now I feel stupid, the entire source tree is included as well; for the simulator and the server look in
/src.zip of the SDK archive.
