NY Times' David Pogue gives some love to TiVo

TiVo UnboxDavid Pogue of the New York Times is throwing some love TiVo's way, with a writeup of some of the new features TiVo has added over the last year or two. With what seems like a new feature added every month, it's easy to forget exactly how many things a Series2 or Series3 TiVo can do that a generic cable company PVR can't.
  • Share movies you've uploaded with family and friends over their broadband-connected TiVos.
  • Schedule recordings through you Verizon cellphone.
  • Watch selected web programs via TiVoCast.
  • Rent or buy movies from Amazon Unbox.
  • Get local weather and traffic.
  • Get local movie listings.
  • Listen to internet radio stations or download podcasts.
  • Automatically record recommended programs from expert-picked Guru Guides.
  • Stream music and photos from your PC to your TV.
There's nothing particularly new in Pogue's writeup. But looking at that list, it's hard to see why anyone would stick with a cable company PVR when they can pick up a Series2 TiVo for next to nothing after rebate. If you want high definition on the other hand, the Series3 box's $800 price tag makes this list a little less attractive.

"...it's hard to see why anyone would stick with a cable company PVR when they can pick up a Serie2 TiVo for next to nothing after rebate."

Can you say high definition surround sound recordings?
