Where is the TiVo remote control iPhone app?

if it can control iTunes over wifi...then it should be able to control the TiVo?
or at least show a better NowPlaying...
in an iPhon-ish way....

I continue to hope for an iPhone Tivo Mobile app. I doubt anything official will ever happen.

I'd at least like a streamlined mobile website where we can remote schedule from a phone. The yahoo listings keep crashing the iphone browser and tivo's website is one of the slowest I've ever been on (what's the deal there???). A mobile site like this would be great for any phone with a browser. Or does something like this already exist?

Agreed Chip. The red tape BS of creating a TiVo app wouldn't matter if there was a solid mobile site. If it isn't in the works now, they need to get crankin! =)

What I would like is a simplified version of their site so I could check my account as well as search and schedule programs. On the slower edge network navigating their site is a pain.

What would REALLY be cool is if any TiVo Remote application supported entering text data on the TiVo. Setting up wish lists using the TiVo remote is a royal pain. Enough to really discourage the process, frankly.

The apple remote application for the iPhone allows the iPhone to be used to enter text when it is controlling an AppleTV. Does anyone know if the TiVo software supports sending letter codes to the box?

b. and from the web (edge, 3g, wifi) when away from home.
2. View what is an the Tivo
3. Control your tivo from the iphone while on local network
4. transfer items to home server or other tivos
5. Transcoding from cross platform desktop app and transfer to iPhone. This is a big ask and possibly a dream but hey those of us who can't code at all can afford to dream big since we have no idea how much work is involved.

If anyone knows anything about this type of thing being developed I would volunteer my iPhone as a Beta test rig, and help anyway I can. Thank you for your time and work.

cheers.

http://i.tv/ now has a free app in the appStore that works as a guide. They claim the next release will have the ability to "Remote Record TV shows to your DVR". I dont know if they mean tivo, but its worth watching.

There are several sites that have the feature to schedule TiVo recordings ( tv.yahoo.com/listings and tvguide.com). Its just that non of them have friendly iPhone views.

A full on TiVo app is needed though. A remote control, guide, and scheduler would be awesome.

I would also pay for a dedicated iPhone app

New mobile site for remote scheduling

the following link talks about a TiVo beta mobile site just launched for remote scheduling. I would still love a native app for the iPhone with the remote control ability....at least this is a step in the right direction!!

new iPhone/iTouch tivo remote app

iTunes finally added a new app (called "RemoteT") that is a remote control for the tivo HD/series 3. I got it yesterday for $0.99 and it works really well. It is simple to setup since it automatically detects tivos on your home network. The interface is plain, but maybe they will improve it with future upgrades. It would be nice if they combined the functionality of it with the "DVR shows" app and the "iTV app".

Tivo Remote for iPhone

As of 01/22/09 there are two apps in the iTunes store - "DVR Remote" and "RemoteT". Both seem to work the basic Tivo functions but lack the additional universal remote things like Power On/Off and Volume control. Not a total replacement for the Tivo remote, but kinda neat to have on your phone.

DVR remote

a new app was just added to the iTunes store called "DVR remote" that seems to be a combination of RemoteT and DRV shows...looks promising, but haven't tried it yet.

m.tivo is excellent, it works great. using it on iphone feels more like an app then a website. also you can save the bookmark as tivo icon on the home screen making it even more like a real app.

Red face Tivo Mobile Iphone App

The app use to exist on the Apple ITunes site. My wife has it on her phone and uses it frequently, but it no longer exist on the Apple site. Can someone tell me where to get it or why it went away? J
