Advertisements I have finally got TiVo web working; and am having difficulty deciding the best way to set it up for remote access from different locations. I have done various searches; TiVohelp seemed to provide the most comprehensive advice, and advised against making TiVo IP accessible over the Internet via port forwarding on the router. However, the 'solution' was to access TiVo web through the home pc via VNC/Remote Access, etc. This may be more secure for the TiVo, but opens up all sorts of issues re computer hacking; and I would rather have a hacker delete recordings on the TiVo rather than access my personal files, and hence I am not so keen on this idea. Another drawback is that one's computer would have to be on the whole time, which is a waste of energy and contributes to carbon dioxide emissions. And also, VNC/Remote Desktop may not always be available on public terminals. The document goes onto say that if one makes TiVo web accessible over the Internet, one can password protect the logon (though the passwords are set in plain text) and change the port number. This would seem sufficient security for me. What was more concerning was the possibility mentioned of DOS attacks that could 'easily' crash the TiVo. Perhaps members who have set up their TiVos accessible on the internet could comment on whether this is the case or not.
