This is a Flickr API and TiVo HME Experiment

We won a TiVo Developer Challange Award!

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.
