Update thoughts

Now that we have clear communication between the TiVo and a PC running a photo/MP server, has any thought been give to offering expanded local communication with the database in the TiVo? It would be really nice to be able to alter programming from a PC interface, have a view of what is on the TiVo HD and how much space it is taking up, and be able to interact with the list of what is available on the air (or cable) and when, and make easier decisions about when to add new programming.

Note that this does NOT involve allow transfer of video files from TiVo to PC, a situation I understand TiVo does not want to support for legal reasons. It occurs to me that the lion's share of this work would be on the PC side with a communication piece added to the TiVo (Web? FTP? Telnet?) for downloading the current database to the PC and uploading in real time the changes made. Any thoughts (or is anyone working on this...?)

My stuff:
MX-500 Remote
Tivo series 2
Onkyo TX-SR600
Toshiba SD3900 DVD player
Toshiba 42HDX82
Canopus ADVC-100 Capture Box
Toshiba 2455-S305 Laptop
