I’m just linking to this because it’s an extremely cool idea:
I would love to see a Yahoo! Pipe (or program) that set my Windows Media Center to automatically record movies from my Netflix queue, and then remove them after they are successfully recorded (am I asking too much?). For example, the Turner Classic Movie channel is many of the Academy Award winners, so why should I rent them?
This would be brilliant. I don’t think Yahoo Pipes is necessarily the right tool for the job, but something must be. You can program your Tivo from a Web interface, that seems like a start.
