for a little while, I've been working on a mobile app that addresses some of the frustrations I have with my TIVO experience:
* TV guide on screen is hard to use, even on my 42" screen
* Tivo interface is getting more and more complex. Apps like iPlayer or Youtube are there but they are buried deep inside the menu structure
* my children record the hell out of the 'kids' channels, so all the TIVO recommendations are skewed towards 3-8y old. Hence it doesn't work for me.
So I decided to build my own app to try and solve this stuff. I'm mostly there.
It's on iOS only at the moment (next is Android if the app gets some traction) and it does most of what I wanted (better EPG, remote control of the TIVO, and learns from my viewing habits).
If you are interested in testing it, I am using testflight to send you the app so visit tflig.ht/SIQ9O8
or PM me.
If the app is any good for more people than just me, I'll put it on the app store. Meanwhile, I'll keep coding
