TiVo Tru2Way/OCAP set-top

DVR maker TiVo is preparing to support Tru2Way technology, according to a financial statement released by the company. Fomerly known as OCAP, the technology enables two-way interaction over cable set-tops, including services such as games, chat, web browsing and shopping. The technology will only be available in in the form of an upcoming standalone device, however, and not as an update for present set-tops like the TiVo HD or Series 3.

The new DVR will also be distributed through two different channels: directly to individuals, as with most TiVos, and additionally through the cable providers themselves. This may mark the beginning of a shift in the DVR market, as most cable providers typically distribute set-tops by companies such as Motorola and Scientific Atlanta. [via TiVo Lovers]
