    Hopefully I will get to 10 quickly and not bother too manyfolks.

    Anyway - I found the remote very useful, at times even more reliable to an IR remote. I see that there is one for the IPHONE - would be nice if I could get it on the ATT tilt.

    Yeah, it's kind of a weird anti-spam measure that they're doing now. I discovered it by accident recently when I came here with a new browser and hadn't logged in yet. Just one more reason why I need to set up a regular web page for the remote etc. (I already knew that only registered users could download.) Sorry about that.

    I have two possible explanations for the restriction against reading URLs in sigs:

    1. By letting only regular posters see the URLs, they prevent them from being spidered. Getting Googlebot to spider the links (to increase page rank) is probably the prime reason spammers post nowadays -- they're not actually expecting people here to follow obvious spam links.

    2. It's a mistake, and they meant to restrict posting URLs in sigs rather than reading them.

    Anyway, if you're going to post just to up your count (which I don't recommend), then you might want to do it in the Test section, where no one will complain.

    Try upgrading to a newer version of java. I upgraded to Java 6 and now I can run this jar.

    Then again i'd recommend #384 with python. The text isn't as pretty, but it's full featured.
    The keyboard shortcuts make it FASTER then the peanut remote itself!
    I also like that the standby button is right there.

    Kudos to wmcbrine for creating this program! And at only 741 lines of code, wow that's some powerful stuff!

    There was some earlier mention of someone potentially doing a javascript version or one that works with the philips pronto professional remotes.

    Has anyone progressed on that?

    CWEB,
    Now you're talking. I've been searching for a couple of days and this thread seems to come the closest to what I'm trying to achieve.
    I am a professional custom installer of the Philips Pronto line of controllers and am looking at how I can get 2-way control of Tivo Series 3 units. The Pronto does have 2-way communication ability through IP or RS-232. IP, it seems, would be the preferred method of communication.

    So, has anyone out there got anything going yet in this area or am I going to have to try and create this from scratch using the information in this thread? Is there better information anywhere else?

    Thanks,
    Green Bay Custom Theater LLC
    (The ONLY Pronto Level 3 Certified Installer in the United States)

    PZAND, how is this going to make your Pronto 9600 soooo much better? Have you figured out a way to do 2-way communication using your Pronto?

    Trying to do something similar to this with my hacked series 2 (want to be able to change channels via my pc.) Does anybody know of a way to install this hack onto a series 2 or another way to accomplish this?

    AFAIK this hack does not work with series 2 units. If it's already hacked your best bet is to use sendkeyplus, there's even a module for it in TivoWebPlus 2.1.

    The web remote of tivowebplus is handicapped by its requirement to send each key individually over the web. I'd like an application like this one which could control the sendkey commands quickly. Any thoughts?
