I was curious if anyone was aware of the development of an OFFICIAL Tivo Web API.
I understand, and have researched several hacks that allow me to obtain an XML file of current shows for display on my blog. That is actually how this question started. This is fine for someone that has a bit of hacker knowledge, but hardly reliable on a day to day basis, and definitely not for the casual blogger.
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
2) Retrieve Season Pass List
3) Retrieve To Do List
4) Send a Recording Request
5) Send a Season Pass Request
If not an open Web API, what about Tivo working directly with some of the more common social networking and blogging sites, like Facebook and Wordpress?
Are there security/privacy concerns that are keeping this from happening? Could there be a license agreement for those that want this data could accept with the understanding that these specific data items are at a higher security/privacy risk?
