Geek Heaven

My TiVo hacking happens to be working out better than even I imagined.

I've installed MFS_ftp, which allows me to FTP to my TiVo and download shows through a regular FTP client. See what I mean?

I also stumbled upon TyTools, which is another UI to grab content from the TiVo in an even more clear way.

And perhaps the most important find of them all - MPlayer for Windows can play the download .ty files right out of the box. That means that all my hacking actually served a purpose.

The geek side of me is still most impressed by the fact that I can telnet to my TiVo.

Truly, I feel like a Geek in a geek candy store, with an all you can eat geek special going on.
