One thought on “TiVo: Net Recording Ho!”

  1. Hooking a PVR up to MovieLink/CinemaNow seems like a no-brainer. I can’t even think of a down-side except that Tivo is so hobbled by it’s Hollywood “partners” and that MovieLink/CinemaNow only support Microsoft DRM which isn’t available on Linux-based Tivo/Replay devices.

    Let’s hope Apple is working on this. I’ve never believed that Jobs really means what he’s been saying about video and media devices. A cheap (MacOS or not) box with wi-fi and a TV tuner pulling down program listings and movies sounds about right.
