problem is that most broadband connections do not have much upload (from PC to internet) bandwidth and people I know that have tried this have shut it down and instead spent money on a good MP3 player for music to go with them.

I currently have JavaHMO and Moodlogic installed on a desktop within my home network, and have all my mp3's stored on a server also inside my home network. If I'm not mistaken, you can access JavaHMO from the Internet if you open some ports on your firewall, but I'm not sure if you can serve files from inside your home network, through the Internet, and into another home network or TiVo.

As for your situation, does your ISP's server require you to log in, as in FTP, or can you get to it via setting up a mapped drive on any PC in your house? If you can map a drive, you can use the mp3's there with either the TiVo server software or JavaHMO or Moodlogic.

I think TiVo is simply going for the biggest audience. Why would TiVo make the assumption that in addition to the monthly (or lifetime) subscription cost and the initial equipment cost they should also host their mp3s elsewhere? I understand that you probably mean that you would like support for this and not that everyone should do it this way, but really, how many people would do it your way? For the cost of hosting such a server for a year you could buy a dedicated machine and just leave it running or buy a second hard drive for your existing pc and serve them up from there. Tivo can also hardly openly show support for file sharing considering the RIAA lawsuit. Just my humble opinion.


I have a NAS device, and I would like to access my files from that device, but I can't. I wish I could......

DCIFRTHS, why can't you access your files from there? Can you map a drive to that NAS device? If so, you can map it on a desktop system, and then run the server of your choice to serve those mp3's for you to your TiVo. I tested a config like that tonight, and it worked like a charm!

What I wouold like to have is just the NAS device running, and the TiVo software do a search on accessible shares. I would like to remove the PC from the equation. AM I correct in stating that this can't be done at this point in time?

Thanks

As far as I understand the technologies involved, you are correct: this cannot be done at this point in time.

Yes, that is not possible, but it would be a great opportunity for HMO 2,0

In addition, what about using the USB port and allowing me to mount an external USB 2.0 HD with music on it? That would be a good feature to have.
