    It doesn't negotiate telnet terminal options, but telnet (the program) is still the easiest way to communicate with it. You can also use telnet (the program) to talk to http, pop3, imap, smtp, and other non-telnet (the protocol) services. It just opens a TCP socket for use and provides a convenient way to talk to services, especially ones which are based on ASCII commands.

    I don't know, but I would be willing to bet:

    Skip: just a duplicate "green D action" button but with a more prominent label.

    Netflix: they've had this kind of thing before on some remotes, like the "on demand" button. I bet they're all the same thing and it just depends how your TiVo is set up. Maybe Netflix is the default "on demand" if you don't have Xfinity or whatever. I know there was a code (35 I think) sent to HME if you hit the "on demand" button just before it killed the HME app and went to the on-demand app.

    Sounds logical. So, for netflix, I took it the next step and just sent 'NETFLIX' as an IR_CODE and it works. Unfortunatly, no such luck with HBO, HBOGO, PLEX, EPIX, YOUTUBE...

    Nice! I'll have to use that in my Alexa skill. It'd be great if there were similar ones for the other apps because building a navigation macro to launch an app is complicated. Having a direct code that like makes it a lot easier. I wonder what the Vox code is using to launch the apps ...
