Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

So with the 15.2 update, it looks like the TiVo box is alive on the 443 (https) port, and using my browser to attach to the TiVo over the local LAN I get a login prompt.

Anyone know what the default username / password is, and what lies behind this login?

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

The login is "tivo" and password is your Tivo's unique MAK which you can find in the settings menu.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

It lists all the content recorded on your Tivo, with a "Links" column which appears to be where you can download a copy of the recording to view on other devices. On mine though all shows are marked as "Protected" so you can't access anything so it looks like this feature has been disabled.

At the bottom of the page is this disclaimer:

Unauthorized transfers or distribution of copyrighted works outside of your home may constitute a copyright infringement.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

Obviously my box is dead right now, so can someone confirm you can see the file size and .tivo extension on the recorded content?

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

Thank you. Got a pair of home plugs arriving next week. Can't wait to have a play about.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

You can see the recorded date, length of recording and file size but not the file extension as all files are marked as "protected". You can also browse the folders for collections, suggestions etc.

On mine the logos for the channel recorded from don't load so you just get a red cross with the channel name instead.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

Thanks.

Yup - that worked. A little more investigation and it looks like it's the same web interface that TiVo has had in the US since Series 2, but with all the shows currently 'Protected' rather than letting you download them. I would guess that's something to do with the ongoing rights management issue that prevents multi-room streaming from working.

You can also get an XML view of the list by going to https://x.x.x.x/TiVoConnect?Command=...ng&Recurse=Yes - replacing the x.x.x.x with your TiVo IP address. As a coder, that could be an interesting feed to use once (and if) VM allow shows to be downloaded directly from the box.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

Good info so far... will add it to the "what to expect" thread at some point.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

It doesn't work on mine. It won't accept the mac address as a password.

How are you entering it? With the colons? Is it case sensitive? I have tried all combinations I can think of and it rejects it.

MAK = Media Access Key, not MAC address.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

They don't seem to have uploaded the images to the TiVo server, or maybe they just didn't realise it was there.

Here's what it should look like, with the images:

Thanks. I was just reading another thread and realised that. I thought it was just someone spelling MAC in an odd way

I tried changing QueryContainer in the URL to something else (EditContainer) and I got this error.

Re: Logging into to TiVo over Ethernet?

Is there any hope in hell of TiVo recordings expanding to PC & mobile? I really don't want to be buying recording hardware now then VM flick the switch on this.
