Either way, I am back to MMC for PVR management. It just works fantastic with my setup and I have larger bridges to cross at this point.

I am back to using TVLobby to control channels from touchscreen through MMC. I added other buttons on the same screen to exactly mimic the MS remote. SO at thins point, I have one way communication to MMC with no issues.
Thanks!

Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water....The new Nero - Liquid with TIVO interface is due out this week.

Seems to support legacy tuner cards, many remotes and uses the TIVO interface along with ability to reach out to other TIVO integrated PVRs....

There is a a $14.99 monthly service fee....sorry for sounding like an advert....

Here's one of many write ups

of course then it begs the "Will there be an ML interface?

Well, ReplayTV did try that and failed miserably... ;)

It sells for more than its established competitors (BeyondTV/SageTV/etc.), comes with monthly fees and all that for a pretty interface... ;)

of course then it begs the "Will there be an ML interface?

It doesn't sound like it can communicate with the regular TiVo boxes and with their tendancies to sue everyone, I kinda doubt they'll be publishing their API for third parties to develop addons/plugins...
