Don't think it's anything new as telnet interface has had that for a long time and available via tivoremote
for series 3 units. Function is also available using mindrpc protocol which kmttg remote uses for series 4 units (and uses telnet protocol for series 3 units). Don't know about the OP's app specifically but probably is one using mindrpc protocol.
