Last week I have posted here that Orb Networks has made its APIs for Orb available for public use and development and the first plug-in we have seen was the Skype Voicemail plug-in.
Now the second Orb pug-in made it to the mass: TiVoAnywhere. While I'm not a TiVo user at all (it's not available over here in Germany) it looks like a fantastic service to record and watch you TV (OK, I do the same with my Windows XP Media Center Edition anyway) and if you are a TiVo customer, now you can watch your recoded shows on any Windows Mobile device, from Pocket PC to Smartphone plus most of current 3G phones and for sure any Windows PC and Notebook:
Hey guys, this is Ed from Quebec, Canada. Ever since I heard about Orb releasing their Add-Ons API I had a dream. Dream to access all my TiVo recorded shows off my Series 2 with TiVoToGo from anywhere, any device, anytime. This dream came through with Orb! I can watch and schedule my TiVo shows from my cellphone, from my desktop in my office or from anywhere I want in the World!!!
Just run the install by clicking on the .exe file. Next time you'll sign in to http://my.orb.com you'll see TiVoToGo in the Add-Ons section. Go to config to enter your TiVo box IP address and its Media Access Key (MAK). If you want to remotely schedule the box as well, you'll need to provide your TiVo web login and password. All that info is securely encoded on your home PC.
Get the TiVoAnywhere plug-in for free from Ed's TiVo anywhere project page.
