    I got excited about this since I have Ooma, but it requires the $10/month Premier plan instead of the $3/month one that I have :(

    Do the lights only go blue when playing back certain kinds of content? ;)

    Ah! That explains things.
    Is there a way to do the conversion within the IFTTT recipe or do you need to do it externally, e.g. in a google spreadsheet?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Don't think there's a way to do it within ifttt but here's the formula I'm using in a google spreadsheet:
    Code:
    =B1/86400000+"1-Jan-1970"+(-5/24)
    B1 is the raw timestamp sent from the tivo ifttt recipe to the spreadsheet. Importantly, the formula field is also formatted as "Number>Date time" (from the Format menu). The last part of the formula ("+(-5/24)")accounts for my timezone (EST = GMT-5), so adjust the -5 to your timezone offset accordingly. If everything is working, it should end up looking like this in the formula field: 3/7/2018 20:03:44

    One of our members reported on Facebook how he captures the caller ID and displays it on the tivo using IFTTT. He uses a computer, but this could just as easily be done using raspberry PI.

    He said he will document a tutorial and post here. This has been a pretty common ask and a pretty cool solution

    Thanks! Got it working now with the "add a row to a google sheet" action. And I'll chime in, it would really be nice if the trigger had additional metadata, e.g. episode name, added as ingredients for IFTTT.

    Can someone remind me of the current state of the IFTTT rollout? (Basically, am I missing something here?)

    Should a Roamio running TE3 just magically have the app in Apps? Or is manual action required? Or am I still just waiting?

    Np clue where they are on the general rollout of the app. I'd just request it if interested.

    Thank you, I'm one step further ahead now, the app has appeared. The following steps aren't exactly going smoothly, lots of "temporally unavailable" and "Unexpected Errors", but still progress. ;)

    How did you get the app? I've been talking with TiVo support. They gave me a list to do, and now the app should be on my OTA Romio, and nothing...

    I'd love to have a IFTTT app.

    FYI... just posted to the TiVo.IFTTT.Innovate Facebook group (link)...

    David Shoop Hey IFTTTers... A little more of what you love. We have just launched 2 new Triggers this week: Parental Control PIN entered, New OnePass created. We are in the process of creating a few sample applets against these 2 new triggers, but I wanted to get this up as quickly as possible since I know many of you subscribe to the email when TiVo launches new actions and Triggers. ONE NOTE: The New OnePass created should only be used with a DVR. If you create a NewOne Pass from a Mini, mobile or web client the Trigger actually happens on the DVR and not the client that was used to create the OnePass. Send us a note and let us know how you might use these new triggers. Enjoy!​

    Something is not right with the CreatedAt ingredient in "Content from My Shows begins playing". This is what the IFTTT Activity Log shows:

    Applet ran
    Mar 15 - 11:24 AM

    Ingredients
    CreatedAt
    May 11, 1521

    The 'CreatedAt' ingredient is the number of milliseconds since "epoch." How are you converting this to a formatted time?

    p.s. Previously discussed here and here.

    I am not converting it. IFTTT displays it that way at IFTTT

    Ah, it looks like someone's modified the field to display as a formatted date only, rather than the original "milliseconds since epoch."


    p.s. Examples:

    Current:
    CreatedAt
    May 17, 1521

    Previous:

    And in my spreadsheet, I am getting a negative number -138295. Neither May 11, 1521 nor -138295 is very useful.

    They're aware and actively working on the timestamp issue:
