Eero Ups The Ante With 2nd Gen Hardware

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:04:49 +0000

2016 was the year of the mesh network, with WiFi routers finally breaking free of the commoditized hardware doldrums, and eero ruled the roost (although they didn’t actually serve up a true ‘mesh’ from the get-go) despite some fierce competition from Netgear Orbi. Beyond mesh, eero also successfully emphasized ease-of-use — although what some found […]

Alexa Coming To TiVo, Maybe IFTTT Too

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 13:36:36 +0000

Voice control is all the rage these days… and TiVo is working on, not one, but two solutions. Beyond this exclusive pic of TiVo’s upcoming voice remote and native natural language processing capabilities, sources also indicate TiVo is dabbling in Alexa. Integration is not “terribly hard to do” given Amazon’s Alexa Skills api and TiVo’s […]

Tablo’s Next Gen DVR Is Here

Wed, 31 May 2017 15:08:27 +0000

Although TiVo may be moving on, Canadian startup Nuvyyo is doubling down on Tablo with a spiffy new network tuner. The Tablo Dual OTA DVR ($250) features a significantly smaller, redesigned fanless enclosure. But that’s not the real story here. By integrating 64GB of flash storage, all customers now start with up to 40 hours of antenna TV […]

TiVo Mavrik Is Dead (and all of retail is in jeopardy)

Tue, 30 May 2017 11:42:02 +0000

Sigh. Sources indicate the TiVo Mavrik is dead. What was intended to be TiVo’s more modern take on antenna television now joins the Bolt Aereo Edition in the cord cutter dustbin as Rovi management calibrates a new TiVo. The Mavrik is was a dual-tuner Tablo-esque network tuner with cloud recording capabilities that would stream video to multiple sources, […]

TiVo Preps “Vox” Offering (with voice remote)

Thu, 25 May 2017 13:54:35 +0000

As TiVo continues to find itself, post Rovi merger, details have emerged on what looks like a new retail-focused offering called Vox. TiVo has submitted six trademark requests with the USPTO for both the TiVo Bolt Vox and the TiVo Mini Vox. While multiple entities have seemingly confirmed to me that “Vox” is a thing, I’ve […]

Roku Spam Buttons Now Less Intrusive

Mon, 22 May 2017 15:18:29 +0000

As disseminated by Cord Cutters News, the new Roku 7.6 OS update resolves at least one “spam button” annoyance. When you accidentally sit on your Roku remote or your toddler grabs it, you won’t necessarily be dumped into a paid partner’s streaming app. Instead, while video is playing, you’ll be offered up a confirmation screen […]

The TiVo Cord Cutter Solution That Never Was

Thu, 18 May 2017 14:47:49 +0000

When TiVo opened their CMS search to all a few weeks back, they left behind traces of an alternate timeline… one where the TiVo Bolt Aereo Edition actually made it to launch. And, fortunately for us, an astute reader ferreted out and preserved the details. First glimpsed in August of 2015, the TiVo Bolt Aereo […]

TiVo To Complete HDUI (after seven long years)

Wed, 17 May 2017 12:57:32 +0000

After seven long years, sources indicate TiVo is poised to finally complete the HDUI menuing system that was originally unveiled with the Premiere back in 2010. Although, it’s not actually clear that Premiere hardware will receive the interface update, whereas it’s confirmed Roamio and Mini will. Beyond updating the remaining standard definition screens to high […]

President Trump Loves His TiVo

Thu, 11 May 2017 15:00:26 +0000

Given President Trump’s television pedigree and media preoccupation, it should come as no surprise that he’s a big fan of the DVR. In fact, he cites TiVo by name as one of the greatest inventions of all time (although he doesn’t receive RCN cable). And that’s something we can all agree upon, irrespective of party […]
