For what its worth there is a fork of pyTivo that supports PlayOn
My limited post count prevents me from linking but if you google "playon pytivo" you'll see the jkasayan fork hosted on Google Code as the very first result.
The installer tries to install as a service but I don't run it that way on my system. I just ran the installer, grabbed the pyTivo folder it created and used that to replace my existing pyTivo files.
I've been using it for a few months now to access our Amazon Prime account to watch NYPD Blue. It works great for the most part and the quality of the Prime HD Streams are very impressive. Not HD quality due to the limitations of PlayOn but still very good. It seems to time out sometimes but I think it's my DSL (7mb/768k).
The advantage of PlayOn through pyTivo for us is that the shows transfer to one Tivo and we can then stream/mrv them to the other. The only downfall is that it streams in real time due to the nature of PlayOn so there is no fast forward while watching as soon as the the show starts but without commercials it's no big deal.
