What I was wondering is if anyone was aware of work by Tivo Developers to create a Tivo Web API that allowed for several types of requests:
1) Retrieve Now Showing List
This is available with the HMO protocol. But you have to have be on the local network or have some ports forwarded from the outside to access this. It's a HTTP/POX api. If you're looking for a language wrapper, there are several. Just no official tivo wrapper. (There may have been a C++ wrapper at one time, but I can't find it anywhere now)
2) Retrieve Season Pass List
3) Retrieve To Do List
4) Send a Recording Request
5) Send a Season Pass Request
These would be very cool to have, but it's not possible outside of tivo to the best of my knowledge. You can send recording requests on their website, but nothing scripted.
