TiVo and Nero Team Up

TiVo and software developer Nero on Wednesday announced that they were jointly developing a TiVo interface for an upcoming version of Nero's software, giving the suite digitial video recorder-like features very similar to TiVo's set-top boxes without the need for stand-alone hardware. The particular features have not been detailed but are targeted specifically at the increasing amount of home theater computers with TV tuners, Nero says.

Neither company has provided details of what the software will require and deliberately keep the operating system requirements vague, though Nero has traditionally focused its development efforts on CD and DVD recording software for Windows systems. TiVo itself has produced software outside of Windows, but has primarily limited these to Mac versions that sometimes lag behind the original implementations. A release timeframe for the software is unknown but likely sometime in 2008.
