DirecTV TiVo Upgrade

DirecTV and TiVo today jointly announced a set of software upgrades that will reach the satellite TV provider's TiVo-based DVR devices. The future enhancement will bring features previously seen on TiVo's independent Series 2 devices, such as a deleted items folder for safety's sake and overlap protection to prevent one scheduled show from interrupting another. DirecTV itself will also bring in a new feature and allow its remote booking to schedule on-demand shows through the recorder.

All the above updates are currently scheduled to go live during early 2008, DirecTV said. Both companies have also agreed to develop extra features that can boost the integration of the DVR with satellite broadcasts. DirecTV has yet to announce an HDTV-capable TiVo DVR based on either the Series 3 or the TiVo HD.
