Dave Zatz did an interview with Leon Nicholls, creator of the old JavaHMO and current Galleon applications for TiVo.
I like to think of Galleon as the TiVo Swiss Army knife – it pretty much does everything. You want email, weather forecasts, or RSS feeds displayed on your TiVo? No problem. You want to schedule downloads of podcasts for streaming to your TiVo? No problem. You want better music, image, and video management than TiVo offers you? No problem. The list goes on! But don’t just take my word for itâ€¦ TiVo honored Galleon as the â€œMost Creative Applicationâ€ in their Developer Challenge.
