TiVo releases Java based Open Source Platform for building applications

TiVo Home Media Engine SDK
I am sold.. Unfortuantely things are looking bad for the company. I think I will bite anyway.. This is the kind of thing that I think can turn a company around.

Never mind.. This doesn't have the features that I would be interested in. Looks like in order to do what I want, I will have to build my own PVR.
Here are the problems that I see:
Runs as an application on a server external to the TiVo not on the TiVo itself
Has NO support for video or any of the PVR capabilities like pause, fast forward, program guide (as far as I can tell)
A small step above a web tv like product.. Yuck..
