According to [L1 ], it seems TiVo hacking is done in Java. Am I missing something? I thought TiVo was a Tcl platform. -- Chris Nelson

LV There are plenty of other references to true hacking taking place in Tcl. It appears that rather than use a Tcl interface as their published API, they went instead to Java.

Interesting additional note - I was just over at and the first white paper I see shows C code for a particular function; so apparently not everything is being done in Java.

TV The title sounds like a turbocharged TRS80 with hyperdrive and microcontroller devkit to me...
