HP outs free app that ties TiVo DVR, MediaSmarts

HP on Wednesday has released a MediaSmart Expander for TiVo application that will give TiVo DVRs the ability to transfer recorded TV content to and from HP MediaSmart Servers, freeing up storage capacity on the DVR. The free application will also let users manage the recordings stored on the server and stream the content to any connected compatible devices, including PCs, Macs and gaming consoles.

TiVo's HD DVRs let owners record, pause and rewind live TV as well as grant access to what is said to be the largest on-demand video library containing movies, TV shows, music and web videos.

The HP MediaSmart Expander for TiVo app is compatible with the MediaSmart Server EX90/EX495 as well as Data Vault. A 1TB EX490 costs $549, while a 1.5TB EX495 is $699.

    dvr?

    Why in the world would Apple want to add DVR capabilities to the AppleTV? They get nothing from such a device (as in "Why should I buy "The Office" on iTunes when I can record it on my AppleTV DVR?"). The AppleTV is not an 'end' device. It's like an xBox. They sell it to you in hopes that you'll spend a lot of money on content.
