WIN! I've now successfully decoded the iPad <-> TiVo communication protocol.

First, the app uses mDNS to locate the TiVo. Then it connects to the TiVo on TCP port 1393 with SSL, and it exchanges null-terminated JSON back and forth. Once I wade through the details of the schema, I should be able to hack something together. I'll probably prototype something in python, then look at putting an Android app together.

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.
