    I'd like to see TiVo add a small webpage to the embedded web server to show status for the unit. Wouldn't have to show too much info.

    Something like:

    This TiVo's name: configured name
    Software Version: XXX.XX.XXX
    Uptime: XX days, XX hours, XX minutes
    Internal Temperature: XX C (XX F)
    Available disk space: XX%
    Ethernet or WiFi: Ethernet
    IP address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    Date/Time last update: 01/01/2013 07:00 CST
    Date/Time of next projected update: 01/02/2013 08:30 CST
    Status of Tuner 1: Channel 105 (Tuned)
    Status of Tuner 2: Channel 44 (Recording)


    Seems like this wouldn't tax the OS and CPU very much at all, most of that info is readily available from multiple locations in every Linux distro. And it would let some of us geeks download and track status. Not that it would be really useful, just geeky and cool. :)

    We will have it added to the list.

    It'll happen right after the GUI goes to full HD, probably the 39th of Never.

    Outstanding!! And I'll be back from my vacation on Mars on the 37th, so I'll have time to rest and do laundry before I start geeking out with my four TiVo's status pages.

    Seriously, it would be trivial to do, and then could be incorporated into system status alerts, etc.

    I think what you asked for, and even SNMP connectivity would be cool

    SNMP would rock! I use OMD (omdistro.org) to monitor almost 500 systems and 13,000 plus services on those systems at work and also have the same software running at home just for laughs and chuckles. Being able to monitor, track and graph some of that data on my TiVo's would be very cool.

    I personally run whats up gold at work and at home. SNMP would be a nice addition. Or even the html status you asked for

    I just don't see it happenning. When they release a new HD GUI with the Premiere, and now they are into a new model that supercedes the Premiere series and the GUI STILL ISN'T DONE, it isn't a priority oversite. It is a disaster

    I think at the lease they should take the SD items, change the font and display them in a 'window' on the current GUI display, kind of trivial to do, and would give the entire GUI an air of consistency it is lacking now, and leave the live tv in the upper corner.

    Do any TiVo folks keep an eye on this forum for suggestions? It would be interesting to hear what they think about the idea.

    Gawd that is one ugly web page they have. Doesn't render well at all in Firefox or Chrome on Linux.

    Wow, you're right. That looked fine yesterday when I posted it but it's borked today.

    I've noticed a lot of my old links to pages on tivo.com have been broken since TiVo rolled out the new site for the Roamio launch. Looks like this page was another victim. :(

    I'd love to see the temp gauge use Fahrenheit or even just show a degree symbol ° which seems to have disappeared after the 20.3.1 software update on the Premiere, or heck maybe just fix the damn program truncation so it shows all 5 lines, but everything BiloxiGeek has said is pretty cool and I'd like to see it too.
