    I'm doing a job that has two Series 3's that are going to be controlled by Crestron. After initial setup on them, setting static IPs that on our network, I was not able to telnet into the port 31339. The receivers haven't been activated yet so I'm not sure if that's the reason why the port hasn't been enabled. Anyone run into this before?

    mentioned many, many times in this thread:

    Go to Messages & Settings > Remote, CableCARD, & Devices > Network Remote Control

    Then you have to enable it (by default, the option is set to disabled)

    Ok...sorry. I tried searching and didn't find it. And I didn't see anything about it in the first 5 pages of the thread.

    Thanks for the info! Sorry again.

    It's not in the first five pages of the thread because the lockdown hadn't happened yet back then.

    I was searching this morning and there is another iPhone app that can control a Tivo called DVR Remote. It costs a little more but it has some additional features and a pretty slick interface. It's been working good so far. I'll use it for a couple of days before giving a full review of it.

    I wonder if this will open the floodgates for other Tivo remotes, which would be cool to see what other people might come up with.

    I just got a BB Storm and I might try making an app for that too.

    I've extracted the files to the folder. But it's still not working for me over here. The .jar just launches... and then immediately quits.

    Same if I try to run it from the command line (java -jar "TiVoDesktopRemote.jar") or with the newer file (java -jar "TiVoDesktopRemote_w_list.jar") ... this is the output I get:

    Code:
    Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/swing/GroupLayout$Group

    I'm running OS X 10.5.6, on a Unibody MacBook Pro. No other noticeable issues and I have lots of apps. What else can I do? Any more clues?

    Did you see the 'lib' folder, extract it to the same folder the .jar sits.

    No luck:

    I unzipped appframework-1.0.3.jar and swing-worker-1.1.jar to the same level as TiVoDesktopRemote_1.03b.jar.

    So is it working for you now?

    You shouldn't need the library folder anymore. At least not with any of the more recent versions.

    This version works, but the file with all the .class files didn't.

    Hi everyone, just got a TiVo recently and joined the community here. It's great to see all the activity and interest!

    After reading about the iPhone app a few pages back I was thinking along the same lines. As someone who would rather not hack my iPhone (again) now that the app store is available, making a javascript version that interfaces with a python script, php telnet code, etc would be great. I was thinking of hacking up something on my own, but if you already have something made, that would save a lot of work learning how php interacts with telnet. What's the status on this? I speak a fair amount of php, and xhtml/css, so I'd be willing to help out.

    There are already two TiVo remote control apps available for sale in the App Store.

    RemoteT for $0.99, and DVR Remote for $2.99.

    Thanks wmcbrine for all of your hard work.
    This program really saved my ass last week when my batteries died.

    I am now trying to install it on my Cell Phone. I get the prompt for an ip address. Then it just appears to stall as nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Outside...
    It's not as pretty as I'd like, but it is pretty much releasable for other people to tinker on. I never have much time to play, and I lost some interest when RemoteT was first released (with source), but the source for that is inexplicably gone now(I suspect it has to do with the iPhone SDK TOS). I will post the work I've accomplished thus far asap. Besides running on the iPhone, my script also works well in desktop browsers and makes a good sidebar-loading bookmark in firefox, for people (like me) who have the laptop at the couch 24/7.
