TiVo Releases Developer Kit for Series2 Home Media Option

Dave Aiello wrote, "On his O'Reilly Weblog, William Grosso points out that TiVo has released a developer kit for the Home Media Option that's available on its
TiVo Series2 Digital Video Recorder
. Apparently, the reason they relased an SDK is to get help from the developer community to support media formats that are not as widely used as formats like JPEG or MP3. The also want help providing TiVo Desktop functionality on operating systems other than the ones they support out-of-the-box (i.e. Windows 98, ME, 2000, or XP, and Apple Macintosh OS X)."

"The TiVo Series2 is something I have on my wishlist at Amazon.com. It lets you record TV programs, but it also allows you to display digital photos and display MP3s. It's much more of a home media center than the original TiVo. My wife and I have a 'Series1' TiVo and we love it."
