Revision History

1.0: The initial release of the driver

1.01: Adds the IR version of the Tivo Central and Live TV command. The commands have been slightly rearranged with the 'Teleport,' or direct commands at the top and the version that emulates the IR versions of the commands at the bottom (yes, you'd think they'd be the same...)

1.02: Adds the a/b/c/d button commands

1.03: Adds the Zoom button equivalent in the IR command section. Besides toggling the Aspect Ratio settings it will also return you to playback from the menu. Also adds alphanumeric key for menu searches

1.10: Adds the Back button as well as Apex button tagging.

1.11: Updated APEX features

Config Settings

Connection Settings

This driver is provides IP control only as there is no serial port on the Tivo.

Driver Limitations
This driver gives extremely limited feedback. The only available variables are the channel number and a variable that's true when the Tivo is showing live TV. It's little better than a one-way driver, the main advantage is in the IP control.
