What would the feasibility be of in the future having XBMC as a front end to a TiVo PVR?

I know there's the access available to control the device via wireless, so possibly there's a protocol which could be deciphered.

I am not sure the playback possibility though.

Couldn't find a thread discussing this so throwing it out for comments.

Between tivodecode and kmttg the hard work is done it's just a matter of putting the pieces together, I think I might give it a try.

Anyone ever make any progress in this area? It'd be convenient being able to use an xbmc client to stream content stored on a Tivo's drive.

There's also the StreamBaby project.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/streambaby/

That acts as a server providing stream-able videos for Tivo players. I'd imagine the same sort of thing could be reverse-engineered to allow something else to act as a client and stream FROM a Tivo.
