No I'm not talking about senility, and no matter how many people here at TCF think it applies to me, I'm talking about the TiVo Mind server. Has anyone given any thought to a work-around whenever the TiVo Mind servers are down? They do occasionally go offline, and when they do, those of us who rely on the pyTivo "push" function are rather stuck. The same is true if one's local internet connection is down. There also may come a day when TiVo, for whatever reasons, shuts down the Mind servers. Do we know enough to be able to implement a local Mind server, at least for the purposes of providing pyTivo push and similar capabilities? I realize this is not exactly trivial. One has to implement a local DNS server on the LAN and point the TiVos to it. On the server, one must implement a routine that constantly checks for the Mind server to be active on the internet, and re-points the DNS response when they are down. Finally, on the server one must implement a clone of the Mind server functions.
