    This sounds really usefull, but how do i get it to work.

    I got the source.zip thing, but i cant figure out how to install it, the readme says something about ant run, but i have no idea what that is

    thanks for the help

    What you want, I think, is the Jar file. If you use Galleon, there is a FAQ about using it to launch other apps/Jars.

    Haven't done it myself... though I will try in the near future... but I think it's already there. Check the various locations in the Galleon directory.

    Dammit, now I've got to go and try and get this to work. Will you people please stop writing very useful, very kool little HME apps!!!! :)

    If this works with Galleon, this would be uber-sweet. The wife can finally retrieve voicemails herself.

    Third-party apps will only work in Galleon 1.2.0 or earlier. Galleon 1.3.0 and later uses a newer HME SDK which has not been released yet and is not compatible with those apps.

    Any idea on the time line for the later HME SDK ?
    With 7.2 software requiring later versions of Galleon we're kind of getting ourselves boxed in here.

    Try this, it's working for me (somewhat):

    1. download ant from ant.apache.(org)
    2. unzip
    3. I moved the folder ..\apache-ant-1.6.5\ to C:\Program Files\apache-ant-1.6.5\
    4. Open cmd window
    5. Enter the following:


    set ANT_HOME=c:\<ant directory> mine is C:\Program Files\apache-ant-1.6.5\
    set JAVA_HOME=c:\<jdk directory> mine is C:\Program Files\j2sdk1.4.2_08
    set PATH=%PATH%;%ANT_HOME%\bin

    If you need jdk:
    java.sun.(com)/j2se/1.4.2/

    unzip source.zip for tivonage

    if needed unzip lame and add location of lame.exe to PATH

    i.e. set set PATH=%PATH%; C:\Program Files\lame

    in cmd window cd to this directory

    type ant

    if build is succesful type ant run

    A configuration dialog should appear asking for vonage login, password, phone number

    Looking in the cmd window you should see something like Vonage Settings OK

    On Tivo under Music, Photos you should see TiVonage Voice Mail

    I tried a test message and it shows up on Tivo, succesfully downloads the wav but gets an error converting to mp3. If I convert it manually it works but at the wrong bitrate or something.

    Also, Galleon is not installed on the PC Tivonage is installed on, but I have it installed on another PC.

    I played with this thing for a few hours...

    Downloaded ANT.. tried to run it... failed...

    Looked at the code from vonaje to try to see why it failed getting voice messages..


    Bottom line: very crude and experimental.

    If the author is going to continue to work on this and try to make it stable, great, because I think this is a great idea...

    But I don't see any signs...

    Too bad...

    It's like going to the game, but leaving after the 3rd qtr.

    :(

    It's called "Sunny Path Code" which means limited (or no) error handling and it works only if the environment and everything else is in perfect alignment. The author got it to work on his machine, but no one else has been totally successful.

    But the maybe good news is that I did a bit of digging and found out that the author is going to turn over the project to someone else who may carry it forward.

    In the world of open source projects there are no guarantees, but we can hope as it is a great idea.

    We also have to give the author credit for thinking of it, writing a prototype, and then realizing that he did not have the time to continue the project, found someone else he could turn it over to.

    So we just may well see the 4th qtr after all and enjoy the game

    For some reason I can't post my response to this thread. I'm told it contains images or URLs (it contains neither). So I'm sorry to have to bore you with 5 empty posts before giving you the good stuff. :)

    I guess I might as well edit my real post to include URLs though, now that I'll be able to.

    4 down, 1 to go.
