HD TiVos now able to share content With the arrival of software update 9.2, owners of TiVo Series3 and HD units will finally begin to see support for their DVR's TiVoToGo and Multi-Room Viewing. Until recently, those capabilities had been disabled due to security concerns about sharing copy-protected HD content.
Multi-Room Viewing allows "TiVo boxes to share recorded content back and forth" while TiVoToGo enables "subscribers to transfer shows from the DVR to the PC using the TiVo Desktop software or Roxio on the Mac."

HD content that is not marked with a copyright flag can now be copied using TiVoToGo although many don't see the point.

To have the capabilities enabled, TiVo had to get permission from CableLabs which licenses the CableCARD technology used by the high-definition TiVos. CableLabs had not approved TiVo's DRM technology for HD content until recently.

Hope someone cracks the DRM on this box or Tivo will allow shows to be converted to Divx or Xvid.
