We told you earlier this week about TiVo's partnership with One True Media, letting you upload your home videos and photos to the One True Media website, and then inviting family and friends to view those videos on their TiVo Series2 or Series3. We tried the service today, and it works well. After we uploaded a video to the server, it was automatically edited. There's also stock footage available to use in a production.

After the auto-editing is done, you invite friends to watch your video or slide show, and after your audience enters a tedious 16-digit identifying number, it's a simple matter to find videos and watch them on TiVo. You can even get a Season Pass to someone's TiVo Channel on One True Media, and every video they put up on their channel will be automatically downloaded into your TiVo. The video's a bit hard to see, so look at these screen shots for details:

Here's how to watch our video on your TiVo:

TiVo Series 2 or Series3 owners, enter this code—3573-3271-3868-3313—in the One True Media section on your TiVo and watch the video. It's a useful, easy-to-use service that lets you narrowcast directly to someone's living room. Cool.
