First Nero LiquidTV Unboxing Hits the Web

It's only been a few days since we told you about LiquidTV, a package that turns a Windows PC into a TiVo based TV recorder. So imagine our surprise when we heard EngadgetHD already got their hands on LiquidTV. We'll say wer'e a bit jealous. According to EngadgetHD:

Although we wonder how big the market is for yet another piece of DVR, HTPC software, we do want to find out if the $200 price point, and $99 a year for service, is worth it for a remote, IR transceiver, hybrid tuner, antenna and software.

Very cool! Be sure to check out the complete gallery.

LiquidTV - TiVo to Your PC Has Arrived!


The day we've been waiting for (since have nothing better to do!). The wonderful TiVo interface is finally going to be available for your home-grown media center. Basically TiVo Inc. and Nero AG of Germany have announced software called LiquidTV that turns a Windows PC into a TiVo based TV recorder. According to the Wall Street Journal:

The kit will cost $199 when it goes on sale Oct. 15, and includes a remote and a TV tuner that plugs into the PC. The interface on the computer screen looks just like the one on a TV equipped with a TiVo box.

It isn't the first software that allows TV recording on the PC. That has been possible for years on computers equipped with TV tuners, and some versions of Microsoft Corp.'s Windows Vista operating system include the necessary software. But it will be the first time that both the TiVo interface and functions have been replicated on a PC.

It really sucks that Oct. 15 is still 2 weeks away. We'll definitely be standing in line for this one!

Slingmedia Set To Launch DOCSIS 2.0 Capable SlingModem

One of our favorite companies over the years has been Slingmedia. They have single handedly changed the way we think about placeshifting TV. They are going to be announcing a very cool new product next week at The Cable Show. Dubbed the SlingModem it will basically act as a cable modem on steroids. This will act as both a cable modem and a palceshifting streaming device in one. To quote from our sister site, TV Snob:

The SlingModem will require a broadband connection with a network router to enable web streaming, but unlike the SlingBox, won't have to sit between the router and the TV or set-top box eliminating home network clutter.

This seems like a very interesting streaming device that will be able to remove one layer of confusion for the user when setting up their streaming solution. It also will come equipped with an analog tuner so you can bypass the TV altogether. Slingmedia constantly comes up with very innovative products that further their dominance in the home TV placeshifting market. Once more info is released about the Slingmodem we'll be sure to add another article.
