  accessing TiVo's hidden web server, that's right, web server
Looks like Tivo series 2 DVRs come bundled with a hidden web server that basically allows you to access your stored content remotely. You connect to your Tivo via the Tivo box's ip address and it basically brings you to a page where you can see what you have stored so far. If you want to connect to it from outside of your network, you would have to do some port forwarding from your router but once you do, download away. If you have a series 2 Tivo box that's been updated with the TTG software, you don' need to make any modifications past putting the box on your network. I wonder why this cool little feature wasn't widely mentioned by Tivo. This seems like an awsome feature that looks to be fully functional. No worries. Just enjoy being able to download and share your content with the world.
