    So, I've just converted one of my two TiVo HD XLs to a TiVo Roamio Pro. At first glance, it's a great device. Here is my problem. With the XDs (series 3), you could could control all of their basic features over IP and even get some analog feedback.

    This worked really well as I have these wired into a home A/V distribution system & have a single control interface gui for the entire system (several video sources, several audio sources.)

    To my dismay, it appears that TiVo has either changed this feature, or removed it from the new Roamio device. I would think this highly unlikely as there are several other applications that access it externally.

    Does anyone know of any outfacing API that is in use for the new Roamio series? Have they done something with RESTful webservices or the like?

    Remote control over the network still works in Roamio. You have to enable it somewhere in the Settings menus.

    I haven't double checked, but I think it's here:

    Settings & Messages > Settings > Remote, CableCARD, & Devices > Network remote control

    And, you had to do this on the Series 3, too. It's probably just been so long that you forgot. :)
