Tivo and XMPP

(via stpeter) Tivo wanted to send messages from their servers to your Tivo and so they are doing so with XMPP.

The Tivo Lovers Blog says...

Yep, TiVo is basically using instant messaging for real-time communication. Now when the TiVo server has a new recording to schedule, it will IM the TiVo to tell it. Or if there is a download to pull, it will IM the TiVo to tell it to do so. This is a much more efficient system and it eliminates latency. It is really a clever idea.
