Lucky ducks. We want to play with the new HD
TIVO. At least Gear Live has a 12:38
that runs down every
feature that the new TIVO has.
These guys get down and
dirty with the unit and run through everything we wanted to know. Yes, there is six tuners and they do operate
independently. The guide seems to operate at a resonable speed but still not as quick as we would like. The external
drive is by Western Digital and the TIVO rep would not go into if you could "upgrade" the drive.
The guys from Gear Live does raise a cool question though. Can you "hack" the front panel to display
RSS and weather feeds?
Check out the video if you have any questions or reservations about the new
TIVO. It sure is a sweet PVR.
