Remember how last year we told you that ReplayTV-cum-SonicBlue-cum-D&M was doing the smart thing -- exiting the hardware DVR business to sell its software for computers -- in 2006? Oh, you know we're getting close now, people; ReplayTV's launched its beta sign up program, which will have you suffering laboriously over its 41 question survey before you can submit your app -- that is, if you have (or are willing to buy) a compatible ReplayTV tuner card (those being either a Hauppauge PVR-150 model 1045 or PVR USB2). Testing begins at the end of June 2006, so be on the lookout for "stray" builds, everybody.
