Netflix, Amazon Unbox, and Blockbuster all on your TiVo

Blockbuster TiVo menuOne of the greatest things about TiVo is that the company makes it easy for users to build programs that add functions TiVo has left out.

For example, you can watch movies from Amazon Unbox on your TiVo now, but you can't browse and download movies on your TiVo box. You need to use a computer.

That is, until some enterprising users started hacking together programs that let you surf Amazon Unbox from the comfort of your couch. And why stop there? One user has developed a plugin that lets you browse Amazon Unbox, NetFlix, and Blockbuster all using your remote control.Amazon Unbox is the only service that lets you rent, purchase, and view programs all on your TiVo. But you can view or modify your Blockbuster or NetFlix queues, search for movies by keyword, browse by genre or catagory, or view detailed information about movies, including box art and ratings.

The program supports standard and high definition TiVo units.
