TiVo - Welcome to apps.tv

I'm Learning something new every day here... You can apparently download and run custom apps on your Home Media Option enabled TiVo. And you don't even have to get your geeky nephew to bring his torx screwdriver over, crack your TiVo open, void your warranty, etc. You just punch in the IP address of the apps.tv server into your TiVo, download one of the apps, and you're off.

Step by step dummy proof instructions:

  • Press the TiVo button on your remote.
  • Select Music, Photos & More.
  • Scroll down and select "manually add a server".
  • Enter the following IP adress: 209.97.196.52
  • Press left to go back to the previous screen.
  • Behold! The "apps.tv" subscription manager.

Once inside the land of apps.tv, you can choose one of the following apps:

  • Hot or Not (visit hotornot.com if you dare)
  • Video Poker
  • Skull Bones (?)
  • Sudoku
  • Tic Tac Toe

Download the app to your unsuspecting TiVo, and you're off. Just think of all the time you weren't wasting before.

Get going: apps.tv
