I made it a little bit skinnier now.
The "Netmote" is working great for me!
I don't have a problem with the number buttons.
I kind of like the way it is.
Its just not obvious to someone new, as they will typically be watching the TV when hitting the buttons and they won't see the little red numbers on the Netmote.
The last thing I would suggest is some way to remember Tivo's IP so that it doesn't prompt everytime you start. Auto-discovery of the Tivo would be great too but I have no idea how hard that would be. A simply memory of the last IP used with no prompt would work fine for me.
I have a TIVOHD and in windows telnet I don't seem to be able to connect with "o 192.168.1.4 31339." I get a "Could not open connection to the host, on port 31339: Connect failed." I'm sure that IP is my TIVO's IP. I tried turning off my connecting PC's firewall completely but it still acts that like port is not open. Any ideas?
This could help fix that.
I thought I read through the entire thread, but I missed that post.
Is there a telnet command to force the sound to DD5.1 instead of PCM? Basically using HDMI I want to by-pass the E-EDID autodetect and force DD5.1.
Thanks for all the hard work. What a great find and app(s)!!
Was there any response to this? I have encountered similar problems -- there is no standard "prompt" to wait for after submitting commands via telnet...
by "this" -- I was replying to the thread about whether there was any way to set the prompt so that an acknowledgement can be received for parsing with a Java-based driver.
Has anyone figured out a way of usng this Telnet capbility to allow one to Delete a recording?
Here is why I ask.
TivoDesktop will allow one to delete a recording that is on your PC's disk but NOT on the Tivo itself.
I find that scrolling around the Tivo's menu via the Tivo remote to be a bit tedious and slow when I am trying to clean up uneeded recordings.
Being able to do this via a Point and Click PC interface would be really useful.
See the enclosed markup as an example of the idea I am talking about.
I took a screen snapshot of the nowplaying list and added a Delete field on the left in Red.
Does not have to be a fancy web interface like the one I marked up but a simple text list and a checkbox would be just as good.
Ideas on how one could do this?
I found some things I can't do on the NetMote is when I press the numbers because they aren't as active like the other buttons. I.e.: Tivo + 2, or changing channels, ie: 4-3 just goes to channel 4.
Jeepguy's remote appears to use the teleport feature for all channel changing, which means that the numbers don't work for anything else.
My remote just passes through the numbers as keystrokes, so they'll work everywhere.
What IRCODE are you sending to the TiVo for each number?
I've also been thinking about starting a new IR code based project, but I'd like some input.
I want to take a Rabbit microcontroller and connect it to the IR Port on my Slingbox. Then when I use the remote in the SlingPlayer software, my Slingbox will send the IR signal to the Rabbit and the Rabbit will send IRCodes over my network. This way I don't have to have an ugly IRBlaster hanging out for my Slingbox.
I think the hardest thing will be figuring out how to decode the IR signals coming from the Slingbox. Does anyone have any ideas as to the best way to capture the IRsignals coming from the 2.5mm jack on the Slingbox?
NUM0 through NUM9, of course.
Thanks, My remote has been updated to use a keystroke method for inputting numbers.
Is this the Java version? The file in your sig does not have the .jar that i was looking for.
Which .jar are you looking for? It links to my post with the latest version.
Looking for the file with the single .jar file (with the lib folder), not the one in your sig because I found it contains all sorts of files, .class etc., which I don't know which to use. I have the last .jar file on my desktop which I can just open to use the Netmote.
The one in my sig is a single .jar file. You just run it.
for what its worth, i posted a IPhone / IPod Touch Tivo Remote application and it was approved by Apple. Search for "Tivo Remote" in iTunes.
or check out www dot meer dot net /users/dougt/tivo_remote
that's totally awesome and much appreciated. been using the jailbreak app for awhile now: http://code.google.com/p/tivoremote/
just bought yours.
any chance you can update the UI to have matching remote graphics? It certainly could be prettier.
