As I say elsewhere on this site, our TiVo was the best thing
that Laurie and I have bought in at least 15 years. When is the
last time you heard of someone opening up their VCR to add
features? Never. How about people adding features to their
toaster, coffee maker, or washing machine? It doesn't happen.
So why then do grown people like myself rip apart their TiVos
and write new cool features for it? Because it's such an
insanely cool product, that actually changes aspects of our
lives. And we can (and do) make it better.
describing what we've all been doing to our
TiVos, and guiding you step-by-step on how to do them all
yourself. It describes everything from adding more storage
to accessing your TiVo over the web. It doesn't stop there, as
a third of the book concentrates on helping you write your
own features, guiding you through the internals of the TiVo
software (which runs on Linux, by the way).
