TiVo releases info on their next device While releasing their third-quarter earnings, DVR giant TiVo let a few details slip about what TiVo 4 will contain.
TiVo and the cable industry have come to an agreement on a blue-print for a retail TiVo DVR using the cable industry’s OpenCable Application Platform that will have full two-way cable service functionality. While the technical specifications are still being worked out, such a set-top box will mean TiVo subscribers will be able to get full access to cable video-on-demand and other two-way cable services. This could also mean that a standalone TiVo offering could fully substitute for a cable operator set-top box. This understanding was communicated yesterday to the FCC through an ex parte filing by TiVo.

"We are very excited by the emphasis that Comcast has placed on this product within its organization and their plans to aggressively market it at a $2.95 up-charge as well as through packaged bundles and win-back offers.

Yeah the current one they use is pretty much a POS as far as I'm concerned.I really don't like it that well even if it's a mpeg4 receiver and the older one isn't.I have read that the current one may get a update soon and become more "user friendly"but I take that with a grain of salt.
