TiVo, Control4 Join Forces
TiVo and Control4 announced a tie-up during International CES this week, with open API now available for automation partners for TiVo's DVRs.
Those with Control4 interfaces can now view TiVo info, including info, "My Shows," their remote and the "what to watch" feature."
"This partnership will leverage Control4’s Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) software to make integrating a new TiVo into the home much easier for custom integrators," the company said in a statement.
"With SDDP, the Control4 home automation system automatically finds and adds supported devices to the platform, radically reducing the time to install and program a Control4 automation system, of any size."
