Neuros offers $3500 in bounties for TiVo synchronization solution

Neuros OSDThe folks over at Neuros and DVR Upgrade have an interesting way of adding new features to their flash memory-based MPEG-4 recorder. They decide what features it would be really cool to see and ask the open source hacker community to help them build those features into the device.

Neuros's latest challenge: synchronize recordings between a TiVo and a Neuros OSD recorder. The end result would be pretty cool. Ideally, what would happen is that you'll be able to schedule a recording on your TiVo, and you'll automatically record that program on both your TiVo and your Neuros OSD. That means you'll have a high quality video waiting for you to watch on your TV set using your TiVo, and a lower quality, smaller sized video sitting on a flash card for watching on the go on your iPod, PDA, or other portable media device.

Neuros is putting up $3500 in prize money for this challenge. That bounty is divided into two parts: $1000 for anyone who figures out how to make this work using TiVo's online scheduling capability, while $2500 goes to anyone who can figure out a more direct method using a hacked TiVo running TiVoWebPlus.
