I have written an application for the new TiVo HME which can display Flickr pictures on your TiVo.
You can choose to display pictures searching by tags, groups, sets, users or just the most recent photos. This is configured
by a GUI on the PC, or command line options for the adventurous.
Download binaries to run - here. Unpack this file and click on "FlickrCentral.jar" or "run.bat" to run.
Fixed some memory leaks and issues to make it more robust.
Added search for users.
Added welcome screen.
version 1.5 beta - 9/10/2005
Updated to use Flickr's new web based authentication. This includes adding support for launching a browser for the authentication page, storing a safe "token" on the TiVo instead of a scrambled password, and also "signing" calls to Flickr when required.
Added details of the host machine on the profile page.
Simplified command line parameters, and the GUI, following new authentication method.
Added "Group" menu item for each contact.
The "log" output is now displayed in the GUI, added command line option "-l" to make this go to the console if required.
Added command line options "-a" and "-i". Together these will launch the program iconized and using the last log in - great for adding to the Start Up menu. (Make a shortcut to the FlickrCentral.jar file, then add "-a -i" as command line options).
Added a "Accessing Flickr.com" message to the menus so users get feedback when the application is busy accessing the web.
Improved threading, added more synchronization to resolve some occasional strange behavior.
Version 1.1 beta - 7/10/2005
Updated to use Bananas 1.2.1 and the HME SDK 1.2
New search feature using keyboard widget!
Added some extra "cleaning up" to reduce the number of resources used on the TiVo when browsing menus.
Reduced the cache sizes to avoid out of memory errors.
Added icon to the GUI.
Version 1.0.1 beta - 3/02/2005
Fixed some bugs.
Version 1.0 beta - 2/27/2005
Updated info button screen and speed buttons.
New "Add to faves" button on the Info screen (only works if you are logged in).
Added "Remember me" option - user info is cached on the TiVo, password is "scrambled" but not encrypted.
Animation options and slideshow speed are also cached on the TiVo.
Added ability to browse all groups, not just the ones you belong to.
Corrected some minor bugs and issues to do with caching and pre-fetching and responsiveness.
Added "Paused" icon when the slideshow is paused, icon will go away when pause is selected again.

Removed titles between slides, added support for on-screen titles with the "Info" button.

Added option to change the transition between slides to use different kinds of animation.
Rationalized menus; each contacts menus are the same as the root menu.
Reworked buttons used for slide shows, removed extra "bonk" sounds.
Added option to speed up or slow down the slide shows
