Tivo and Twonky

Post by helboy » Tue May 11, 2010 3:27 am

Howdy

I am evaluating this product to use with my Tivo. However, I note that it does not seem to work.

Is there an ETA for interworking with Tivo?

Tivo needs to be a functional DLNA client for it to work with Twonky.

Postings on Tivo forums from just a month ago show that it does not yet support DLNA and there are no published plans to do so.

Well, Twonky do support non-DLNA devices, says so on their homepage.

I am not the only Tivo user around. Surely there is a market for twonky in the TiVo space!

Some yes, but look at the list - there seems to be a requirement for them to run a DLNA client (such as XBMC).

I assume you're looking for Twonky to include the functionality of TivoServer?
