So how does it work? In short, “You can connect to the TiVo inside your home network with just the IP of the TiVo device and any modern web browser on any platform. This allows you to view everything you have recorded and gives you the option of downloading specific shows. To access the web server outside the home, you have to forward some ports on your router. The coolest thing is, this requires absolutely no hacking or modifying of the TiVo – just need a networked Series 2 TiVo that’s been updated with the TTG software,” explains Dave.
Nice work! I wonder how far off Orb Networks is to offering a TiVo plug-in for streaming content to remote devices? Until then, this straight forward solution should work out nicely when on business trips (as long a you have a decent broadband connection in the room) or at your friends house when you want share videos, photos, or music (I’m guessing it supports those formats as well).
