TiVo Desktop update brings iPod video support


TiVo has released an updated version of its TiVo Desktop software that allows users to convert recorded shows for playback on fifth-generation iPods and other portable devices. TiVo Desktop 2.3 Plus works with the TiVoToGo service to convert and transfer shows onto devices that support MPEG-4 or H.264 video, including the iPod, Sony PSP, Palm Treo, and Nokia phones. The TiVo Desktop upgrade, which costs $25 and requires Windows 2000/XP, also adds scheduling of transfers from your TiVo to your PC. TiVo originally announced plans for iPod support in November of last year. [via Gizmodo]

Update: Pictures and initial thoughts on the TiVo Desktop 2.3 Plus have been posted to Backstage at iLounge.

And without those masses of Windoze users, there would’ve been no iPod revolution. Explains TiVo’s direction, don’t it?
