It’s nice to see TiVo supplying something for the large developer grouping of us. Tahiti, the code name for TiVo’s SDK, will be released on SourceForge sometime soon with a few example applications that “allow DVRs download information and content from the Internet that wasn’t possible to download before.”
However, the CNet article points out a few examples that are already available for JavaHMO using the Home Media Option. Maybe Tahiti can provide a more streamlined way of doing it, and not having to generate images.
The good? Well, its Java based, which means it’ll be able to fit right into JavaHMO allowing for their developers to do so much more with a great product. The bad? It’s a Java based SDK – which means someone is going to have to port it to .NET so that I (or many of you) can use it.
Update: Here’s the direct link to the Home Media Engine (could this actually be the SDK name?).
