ReplayTV to go PC and kill set-top boxes in 2006

Ryan Block

After all this time we’ve spent yelling at TiVo for not porting their software to the PC, it looks like, well, somebody was listening. ReplayTV — everybody remembers them, right? — is taking its platform to the PC in 2006, and intends to sell its software bundled with industry-standard Hauppauge tuners. Yes, this does also mean that ReplayTV DVR boxes are about go to the way of the dodo, so you’d better snap ‘em up now if you’ve got an aversion to running DVR software on a HTPC (but you do have one already, don’t you?). No word on pricing or availability, but we expect we should hear something during CES. And why wouldn’t we?
