TiVo and NeroAG announce partnership

Quote:


...

Under the agreement, Nero will develop a software solution that will bring TiVo features to the personal computer. Capitalizing on the growing PC TV tuner market, it will answer the consumer demand for a trusted PC-based DVR experience for use with the estimated 50.8 million PC TV tuners that will be sold worldwide by 2011, according to In-Stat research report published in April 2007.

"This agreement provides TiVo with an opportunity to deliver its interface and differentiated feature set globally via the PC, enabling TiVo to use all avenues of mass distribution -- from consumer electronics, to cable and satellite boxes and soon, the PC," said Tom Rogers, President and CEO, TiVo. "We are thrilled to work with Nero, a highly successful leader in software solutions for the PC who has the ability to develop a state-of-the-art program centered on the TiVo platform that will bring the same personalized entertainment experience to domestic and international consumers on their personal computers."

Hopefully it works...where as their current solution, Nero Home, has only worked with 1 out of the 5 tuners I've tried it with. But then again they'll probably expect me to pay another $80+ to upgrade to the version that does work.

Nero Home is considered garbage by many. That's probably why Nero decided to partner with TiVo.

It will be interesting to see if they support integration between actual TiVo boxes and PCs running Nero. For example, will multi-room viewing be supported so you can view any recording on your TiVos without delay?

Wonder if it will turn out any better than ReplayTV's attempt.

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do, see movies the way they were meant to be seen
