Developing for HMO?

Finally a good place to post this...

How many of you out there are currently developing a Tivo Publisher replacement? How many of you have thought of doing such a thing? I'm interested in doing it, but just haven't had the time quite yet. If anyone else out there is thinking along the lines I'm thinking of, let me know. Perhaps we could collaborate on it.

1. Runs as a Service (don't need to be logged in)
2. Integrates with Windows Media Player (uses WMP's playlists, auto-playlists, etc).

Those are really the two big features I would want. They are somewhat conflicting as I believe under WMP each user has their own media library. If it's running as a service, how do we know which Media Library to use. I was thinking of providing a program option to determine that...

Other techinical hurdles are that WMP playlists are not stored in the M3U format that HMO reads. They are stored in an XML format, so they should be easy to convert on the fly...

ANyone else got any ideas? Anyone else developing?

DVDerek,

I came up with a way to make the Tivo Server a service. It takes about 10 minutes to do. I have been running it as a service since late April with no problems. The instructions can be found here:Post 1152544

Hope this helps.

Yeah, I knew that part could be done, I've just been too lazy to do it. I'm more concerned with part #2. If I get some spare time I'm going to look into this...

If you're really just looking for a solution and not a coding project, you might want to check out J River Media. I use a Mac, so I obviously haven't tried it, but other folks have (a search should pull up some threads on it). I believe it can do on the fly conversion from Microsofts proprietary WMP format to MP3s (OK, my antiWindows bias slipped though a little there).

I give "J Rivers Media" a big "THUMBS UP". I installed it after the TiVo Publisher started crashing Windows XP. The Media Center works great and yes it does on the fly conversions to MP3 for TiVo playback.
The interface could use a little tweaking but I'm not complaining - at least it works.

Howdy folks -
Has anyone gotten the example Perl code to run on a windows box? On Unix?

I've been trying to get the example to run, but the example sends back XML that fails to parse correctly in IE/Mozilla.

My TiVo doesn't even acknowledge that the server is available.

Looking for anybody else who's actually working with the perl code.

Timo

WMP playlist files work fine for me with Tivo Publisher. I just drag the .asx file into the "published music" pane and Tivo sees and reads them with no problem. Are you guys talking about something else?
