In case you weren’t aware, a few months back my Engadget handlers let me out of the basement research department to write the occasional tutorial. This week’s how-to describes streaming any audio through your TiVo, such as Sirius, XM, or your locked down iTunes. While the hack isn’t new, it isn’t well publicized so I took the opportunity to share the love. Before enlisting Galleon to help pass the audio, you may want to try loading the .m3u playlist into TiVo Deskop — on one of my machines it works, on the other it crashes. The article can be found here.
If all you’re after is streaming music, TiVo’s new online apps include Live365 and apps.tv offers Last.fm. If you’re interested in a more robust MP3 player than TiVo’s Desktop software, both AudioFaucet and Galleon’s music support are worth checking out.
