    Yes. But they don't quite meet your criterion of having no effect if the TiVo is already awake. (If already in Live TV, the Live TV code cycles between tuners. I'm not sure what happens on a Mini.)

    Yes, exactly. I was using it for a small number of buttons for specific channels. Nothing changed in my code or environment, it just started giving me NO_LIVE one day. At any rate, I've switched to using IRCODE, and that's working fine.

    Based on the tivo uiNavigate URI's I thought VUDU and maybe PANDORA would work, but they don't. I think I heard TVSTORE works but I don't think it worked for me when I tried it... or maybe I didn't try it.

    CC and several other commands were removed from Hydra. You’ll have to use a macro.

    Anyone know the IP command to access recorded shows in the PVR?

    Wow! Awesome, interesting use of 'NowPlaying' Anyway works like a charm! Thanks :) This allows me to see 'MyShows' on my Virgin V6 Box in the UK.

    "Now Playing" is what "My Shows" used to be called. The telnet command just never changed.

    Ah I see that makes sense. They would not want to change it, because it would break control systems that already had that in place. Thanks again.

    You would not happen to know which command is for skip forward and skip back. I have used and the forward and rewind but was wondering if there is one for skip too?

    Thanks again.

    Yes, Please! This information will allow me to use EventGhost. There is already a plugin for EG, but it is not completely integrated.

    Give me some time...

    Actually, after reading the EventGhost plugin's code, I think it will work nicely as-is. If you're interested, you can download the plugin at the link below. It's written in Python, so it's easy to glean all of the Tivo commands from the code. If you have an always-on PC on your network, you can always install EventGhost (free) and install the TivoNetwork plugin and create your own macros. EG can be controlled by a variety of IR receivers and even HDMI-CEC (if you buy an HDMI-CEC device for your PC).

    Here's the plugin:

    TivoNetwork Plugin - EventGhost

    If you want to use a PC to communicate on the HDMI-CEC bus, you can buy an adapter here:

    HDMI-CEC Control - Pulse-Eight - Ultra HD Distribution and Control Products

    My HTPC has an internal adapter. My motherboard has a header that allowed me to connect the CEC adapter inside the PC. Most people will probably want to use the external adapter.

    The EventGhost plugins are linked below (there are two of them)...

    I use this one: libCEC plugin for Pulse Eight HDMI-CEC usb adapter - EventGhost

    There is also this one. I have not tested it...

    HDMI-CEC to USB EG Support for Pulse Eight - Page 5 - EventGhost

    Just in case you don't "get" what I am saying...

    If you use EG on an always-on PC, along with the Pulse-Eight CEC adapter... you can setup macros in EG so that the IR remote control that came with your TV can control the TiVo... even though TiVo has not fully implemented HDMI-CEC.

    With EG plus the Pulse-Eight CEC adapter, the possibilities are endless. If you add an IR receiver such as the eHome IR receiver... you can make ANY infrared remote do anything you desire (this requires a little change to the Windows Registry, ask me how).

    EG is driven by "events". You can use "events" from many sources to trigger a "macro".

    For example, you can use the IR receiver in your TV to trigger a macro that will control practically anything.

    Do you want your TV remote to control your Roku? See here:

    Roku and Now TV network control plugin - EventGhost

    It's possible that this subject is off-topic for this thread, but I think this could work to solve an issue I've come up against on a remote/hub combo that has become too far from the equipment.

    I need to figure out how to use an IR Remote to operate three different IP Controllable devices. A Roku, a TiVo and a Yamaha Receiver.

    If EventGhost can capture the IR and translate it to IP, then I can control those devices.

    I'm concerned about Lag and Delay's, but it may work OK.

    Does that seem like something I can make it work?

    I have a Yamaha AVR. Yamaha AVR control is built-in to EventGhost.

    I also have a Roku and a Tivo.

    I have been using EG to control my home theater system for many years. "Lag" is not a problem, if you configure your macros correctly in EG.

    Some plugins for you...

    Roku:

    Roku and Now TV network control plugin - EventGhost

    Tivo:

    TivoNetwork Plugin - EventGhost

    The Yamaha AVR plugin is included in the EventGhost installer.

    The only question is: what do you want to use as an IR "input" device?

    @kpeters59

    If you buy an eHome IR receiver (made for Windows Media Center), you can make a simple change to the Windows Registry which will allow you to use it with ANY infrared remote control to cause "events" to happen in EG.

    There are also lots of IR receivers that work with EG.

    Basically, you need to configure a macro in EG, and you will define event(s) which will trigger that macro.

    The event(s) can be many different things, including specific infrared commands, Windows events (too numerous to mention), and many, many other inputs. Your imagination is the only limit.

    The "actions" in your macro(s) can be any action in any plugin (there are many plugins)... OR... you can write your own python script to do whatever you want.
