Interesting article. It may prompt you for a subscription – I got in using BugMeNot.com
This is the best part, at least IMHO:
This initial release is just the tip of the iceberg for the TiVo platform. In upcoming releases, HME will be enabled by default so that all TiVo service users can enjoy the benefits of an open platform. We plan to introduce additional deployment models that don’t require a PC, and in some cases, don’t even require a home network. The HME API will provide access to more DVR functionality, including scheduling, recording, and playback. Stay tunedâ€”you don’t want to miss the show.
