A stumble through TiVo Land

Looks like TiVo is preparing for a new box. While the name is unknown, it will be a "Series 4" unit. Rumors have it that Flash will play a hand in the interface. This was due to a tweet by non-other then

As for the name of this device, endgadget showed a recent TiVo survey that listed the following names:

• TiVo eVo
• TiVo OminBox
• TiVo Series4
• TiVo OnDemand

From the survey it looks like the new DVR will be able to record two or more programs at once. Does this imply multiple tuners? Or perhaps 2 tuners plus the ability to record video off of the internet? TiVo is definetely setting up partnerships with a number of companies. There is Netflix and now Netflix and Jaman allow you to get videos on demand.

Jaman looks pretty interesting. Rentals cost between $0.99 and $4.99. You have between 7 and 30 days to start watching it and once you start either 24 hours or 7 days to finish the movie.

Quello e tutto per oggi!
