A few months ago when no one was looking Kyle and John (of AudioFaucet fame) put out a TiVo HME book. Beginning TiVo Programming retails for $39.99, though Amazon has it under $27 and shipped free.
Having toyed with the idea of a book and dismissing it due to the massive investment of time (versus revenue), I asked these guys what they were thinking: “We wanted to do something to re-invigorate the HME landscape.” Nice! Maybe TiVo will also think about doing something more to encourage and support the development of third party apps.
I still haven’t gotten to ride the Segway they won from TiVo, but Kyle tells me it has a weight limit. No wonder these things don’t sell in the US.
