How to do practically everything with your TiVo: Galleon 2.4 Alpha released

Galleon iTunesMore than a year after the developer of Galleon stopped working on the open source application for doing about 1,001 things with your TiVo, a new developer has picked up the project.

Galleon lets you:
  • Play MP3 files using Winamp skins, view album arts, lyrics, and other images for your music collection
  • Listen to your iTunes collection
  • View local weather forecasts
  • Read RSS feeds
  • Listen to internet radio including Shoutcast stations
  • View your photos with background music and slideshow effects
And the list goes on. But with development ceasing last year, there was no support for high definition applications, making Galleon a bit less impressive on Series3 TiVo units.

Two updates were released this week. Galleon 2.3.1 doesn't include much in the way of new features, but 2.4.0 alpha is the first version to support high definition applications, like HD photos. This is an alpha, so expect some bugs, but it's nice to see someone pick up the Galleon torch.

Whoops, still need to clean up my Google Reader. I added your new feeds, but I don't think I deleted the old ones, so I read each article two or three times. :)
