I’m in a bad relationship with a DVR, and a new $49.99 model isn’t helping
TiVo is filling out its lineup of DVRs with a more affordable four-tuner solution today, called the Premiere 4. It costs $249.99, comes with 500GB of storage, and it is available now.
TiVo and Pace have announced the XG1, a DVR capable of recording six channels at once.
TiVo has officially unveiled both its streaming transcoder and IP-based set-top box, both of which should be available by the end of summer.
Sony has announced Nasne, a digital media box with built-in satellite and terrestrial TV tuners that will connect to several of the company's products. Many of the features are taken from the similarly-named Torne, a PlayStation 3 TV tuner accessory that uses the console's hard drive to record TV broadcasts.

TiVo is tweaking its product lineup this Sunday, replacing the current TiVo Premiere 320GB model with a 500GB hard drive, which the company says will be good for up to 75 hours of HD content. Along with that refresh is coming a new pricing scheme. The price for the TiVo Premiere will be $149.99, which is $50 more expensive. However, the monthly service fee will drop to $14.99 with a one-year contract.
Ten days ago TiVo teased an update for its TiVo Premiere DVRs but only actually distributed it to a small group of people. Now the company is letting all owners receive the improved software, rolling it out between now and the end of the month.
TiVo is demonstrating a very interesting external transcoder box that lets you stream anything on your DVR to the TiVo iPad app when you're on your home network, and download shows to watch offline or away from home.
TiVo has updated it's Tivo Premiere software to include multi-room streaming, a full HD channel guide, and more. The update isn't available to all yet, but will be in a few weeks.
After a three-year wait, DirecTV is finally launching its new TiVo HD DVR in select markets on December 8th.
