Tivo Control Protocol and new API Documenation

I am developing a home automation application to provide remote control of the TiVos installed in a home using HomeSeer. It is pretty much complete as far as the features published in the Tivo Remote Protocol version 1.1. I figured out how to find all the TiVos on a local network, but would like access to the other features available to the Apple and Android applications.

Does anyone know when TiVo plans on providing their updated API documentation? I have been watching the developer site for years and it doesn't look like anyone has put any effort into maintaining it.

Regards,
Ultrajones

You need to contact TiVo's business division for this info, it probably on the website somewhere. Just a to comment on your plan, I not sure I want to control my TiVo thru a home automation system, however you did something the other way, control and monitor my home thru the TiVo including security cameras, now would be useful. Good luck.

You should check out the source for kmttg. The developer is a member of this forum and he's managed to reverse engineer most of the mindrpc protocol, which is hat the apps use to communicate with you TiVos.
