TiVo partners with Roxio to bring TiVoToGo to Mac OS X


TiVo announced today that it has teamed up with Roxio to offer the highly anticipated TiVoToGo support for Mac OS X. Through Toast 8 Titanium ($100), Roxio’s disc burning software for Macs, TiVo subscribers with broadband connected TiVo Series2 DVRs can transfer recorded shows to watch on their Mac, burn to a DVD, or encode and transfer to a fifth-generation iPod. Recorded content can be transferred to a Mac either one episode at a time or automatically as soon as the TiVo DVR has recorded them.

This is awesome news.  I don’t even have a Tivo and I’m excited - now I just HAVE to get one.

Now all we need is an announcement of some sort of cooperation between Tivo/Roxio/Apple with regards to the iTV!

So for a year TiVo’s been promising and not delivering.  Last month TiVo’s DRM was cracked, basically allowing anyone to do the exact same thing with free 3rd party aps, and TiVo finally decides to get on the ball and give Mac users what they’ve been promising them.  Coincidence?  And as an add on to Roxio, doesn’t that mean that there’s now a $100 price tag for Mac users to do what PC users can do for free?  I mean it’s great that TiVo is finally following through on TiVoToGo support for Mac.  When 2007 rang in without it having happened, I figured they would forget about it entirely.  But I certainly hope there’s free solution for people who just wanted iPod support.  Buying a CD/DVD burning program just so you can put a video on your iPod is overkill.

It looks like the new toast program will have Blu-ray discs capabaility.  Does this mean Apple will be introducing an upgrade to the Superdrive?
