Depends how it is implemented. The web app could talk to the tivo servers, which could relay commands and requests to the TiVo on your local network. The mobile apps work this way already, when you're away from your network(as does TiVo's website). It (a web app) could also talk directly to your TiVo, while on the local network, using either jsonp
or web sockets
When the developer program
'launched', they indicated that more second-screen/web APIs would be forthcoming, which would potentially allow third-party developers access to some or all of the features needed to do something like this, but who knows when that'll happen. There's been almost zero activity since they opened the developer program, and the one employee that was known to be managing the program moved another employer months ago(which is when the little activity that was visible dried up entirely).
