I am not persuaded about that, hacked TiVo's already run from two control
points - the remote and TivoWebPlus over the LAN. Would a third really be a
problem? Seems the TWP already provides some hooks to work with?
I am not sure that it would be worth recording from Myth to Tivo, but it may
be worth playing live and recorded from the Tivo's to Myth.
What happened to MythTiVo that was around, - and its source code? Can it be

I guess I was thinking how I can integrate TV-related boxes that I've
got on the network such that they can interoperate well. I've got an old
PVR-350 which used to be in the Myth box, but frankly, the TiVo does a
job of channel switching the cable TV box, as well as having a better Live
experience (IMHO). UK live TV isn't (yet) as insufferable as US live TV, so
Live TV experience is still important to me.
I suspect the real answer would be to get a Dreambox DVB-C rather than the
Virgin Media cable box, then hook that up to Myth as another tuner, rather
than trying to use the TiVo as a slave recorder. Trying to get the TiVo
operating from two distinct control points (its own remote and MythTV) is
probably a mistake, with the possibility of conflict.
