Dr. Dobbs Journal (March 2005) has an article by Arthur van Hofff and Adam Dopplet, the guys behind TiVo's Home Media Engine (HME). TiVo is kicking it off with the TiVo Developer Challenge to see who can come up with cool applications based on HME.

You need release 7.1 of the TiVo software (which I don't have yet but Nitesh Dhanjani talked about earlier) and a "secret" backdoor (go to the "System Information" screen and enter Clear-Clear-0-0).

Anyone at TiVo listening? We can't target release 7.1 until we get it. :)
