Using OpenSolaris as a TiVo backup device
By drapeau on Nov 22, 2009
Sometimes my TiVo gets confused after a power outage, and it takes forever to reboot (I think it's trying to recover its files which takes a while when you have over 1TB of storage connected to the TiVo). Sometimes, I lose some of my shows, and that makes me sad.
So I decided to find some software I could get running on OpenSolaris so I could use my home media server as a backup device for my TiVo shows.
I did it, using the Galleon open source Java application; here's how.
Now, if somebody smarter than me would just port the TiVo software to OpenSolaris, we'd have the benefits of ZFS on a TiVo box. That would be fantastic.
