After buying a TiVo HD, Don Reisinger has a rather interesting story to tell about his experience just trying to watch television.
The TiVo competitor gets a multiroom option, along with some other minor software upgrades.
With cable customers accustomed to getting their DVRs for "free," will they pay upwards of $800 (or additional monthly fees) for off-the-shelf models from Digeo and TiVo?
Sony's embrace of Tru2way may put the cable-ready technology on the map, but the ghost of the preceding--and failed--CableCard technology still looms large.
TiVo has extended its $400 lifetime subscription offer to July 2, but it's probably worth skipping the pricey plan.
A USB dongle due in 2008 should ensure the compatibility of TiVo's high-def DVRs with SDV technologies that are increasingly being deployed by cable companies.
There are fancier digital-photo viewers out there, but the reasonably priced SDV1-R offers an appealingly refined simplicity.
