HMO server Q's

I was just wondering; If I keep the desktop software running; is my PC open to anyone? Can Tivo see which directories of photos I've published? and last question is : what if I only run the "server" software when I wish to view my photos, will the remote scheduling still work?

Thanks!
Very confused!

The desktop software is essentially a web server, and there is no password protection. If your machine is visible to the wide network (which depends on your network configuration) then anyone who knows the port number the TiVo server runs on could browse and download your pictures or songs. I don't know what your network configuration is, so I can't really answer your question.

If you have a NAT (network address translation) router connected to a cable or DSL modem, such as the recommended Linksys, then odds are good that unless you've specifically enabled some of the extra settings on the router, only machines on your LAN and not the wider internet could see the server.

TiVo, Inc.? I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think so (no more than anyone else, anyway.) The names of the songs or photos might end up in log files somewhere but so far as I'm aware that's not the case (at least, not in the logs I've looked in.)

Sure will. The remote scheuduling stuff doesn't require your PC, just a connection to the network (which needs to be broadband to really be useful. It will work over the phone, but will only check for updates every 24 hours or so instead of a few times an hour.)
