Hacking the TiVo Stream?

So, has anyone had a go at this at all?

Just got mine today, I can't image a reality where someone doesn't come up with a pc based way to forward the stream or a VPN

Well, now we have the stream-in-a-roamio and still, it doesn't seem anyone has made any progress on some 'creative' alternate stream receivers.

There had been options for Mplayer and VLC to play streams from the TiVo, but that required vserver. Those hacks don't work with the official 'streams' and I doubt server will even run on newer TiVos. Besides, what's the point of adding a stream server to a product that already contains one.

Or... have my countless searches simply been poorly constructed and there is really something out there that will let me receive a stream on a desktop platform.

No sooner did I post the preceding than I found this thread. While this neat little hack uses the older MPEG (I.e. I am not using the output of the stream), I am able to view video direct from the DVR on my Mac in VLC.

To do what though?

This has some pin analysis:
http://www.kernellabs.com/blog/?p=1987

There's a Tivo GPL release on tivo.com for it, but is long out of date.

It appears to use Roamio (intel) byte ordering. But it has a different bootloader and kernel (compiler?). Most likely they're using the code base from the Zenverge reference platform for the lower levels.

The Roamio Pro/+ would be interesting to look at, cause if it only has one Flash chip, how are two processors booting from it.

1. Access the streams from something other than the TiVo iOS app.
2. Use the Stream to encode inputs other than TiVo recordings.
3. ???
4. Profit!
