    Just wondering if there is anyone here that knows details about how ifttt protocol works? Since TiVo has added ifttt triggers it may be interesting to try intercepting triggers, for example there's a SkipMode trigger which would be useful to intercept. I've browsed some of the obvious places:
    Introduction to ifttt:
    Protocol reference:

    From Protocol reference looks like it's https interface with json data exchange. But authentication looks to be token based. Would be interesting perhaps to first discover what port(s) TiVo is using for this perhaps using a sniffer utility of some sort.
    I only have non Hydra TiVos so don't even know if they are even ifttt enabled/capable or not. Certainly someone with Hydra would be.

    A very basic query of an ifttt enabled TiVo that presumably should work would be:

    Note that there are at least two triggers so far ...

    . AutoSkip and
    . Content started playing

    ... the latter being active on either Hydra or Encore.

    p.s. I'm wrong. They've added a couple more....

    I am using both Content Begins Playing and Display Message on my Encore Roamio. Maybe you could use one or both of these to sniff for ports.

    I thought Tivo was going to implement Auto Skip in Encore. I have not seen any updates that has included this feature yet. Is there a time frame for adding the feature. I don't need Hydra and am sticking with Encore but it could be a decent feature if reliable.

    From the IFTTT FAQ on FB: "AutoSkip Commercials: TiVo Experience 4 software has the ability to skip commercials automatically, no keypress required. This feature is expected to be available on older TiVo devices in the future." Experience 4 is Hydra.
