TiVoToGo for HD

High-definition TiVo recorders will soon get the same media sharing features as their standard counterparts, a spokesman for TiVo's product marketing confirmed late yesterday. Both the high-end Series 3 and the TiVo HD will have access to TiVoToGo and multi-room viewing that lets Series 2 units share recorded shows with portable devices like the iPod or between networked TiVos. Series 2 and HD models will also have support for exchanging unprotected videos between each other, though Series 2 units "just can't play" HD video due to the processing power needed to decode the images, the agent said.

Programming work for the addition of the features to the Series 3 and TiVo HD is said to be going "smoothly," with beta testing already underway. A final release for both TiVoToGo and multi-room is penned for November, though whether the update will remain free for most users is unknown. TiVoToGo is free for Windows users but currently requires a copy of Roxio 8 Titanium for Mac users.
