Exclusive TiVo Beta Photos

As previously reported, TiVo is beefing up their HME offerings by centrally hosting applications and partnering with Yahoo! Yahoo! weather, traffic, and photos are available by entering your account info on the TiVo box. Also being previewed are Internet radio (Live365), the podcaster application I saw at Digital Life, Fandango movie tickets, and some various games. Beta testing is scheduled to continue into early 2006.

TiVo’s really starting to hit their stride in adding value over the typical cable-co DVR. Once they bundle these features with the upcoming dual HD tuner CableCARD model, they’ll really have something worth drooling over.

  1. This is nice but every Digital Media Adapter (DMA) such as the Link Theater and DSM 320 have had this type of content for a while. Even home brews lke a modded XBox with XBMC have this (and more).
    Why can’t someone create a product that merges the best of both of these products. The DMAs can play practially any media over the network (via SMB or UPnP AV), and PVRs provide a EPG, record and time shift.

  2. Hopefully Comcast customers will see some of that same functionality once the TiVo/Comcast DVR comes along.

  3. Thanks for posting the pics. Alot of theis stuff already exists, true. But it’s pretty clunky. Yahoo can probably throw a lot more time at it than most of the current HME developers.

  4. A lot is available already with Galleon as mentioned above- but doesn’t it make more sense to not have to require a computer to always be on? I think Galleon will always be useful, but the more available online, the better in my opinion.

  5. OMG- Too Cool ! If you look really hard, on the right side of the reflected lamp, you can see the Virgin Mary! This is for Real!!!

  6. Three phrases should be among the most common in our daily usage. They are: Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate.
