HP has just announced the availability of the HP MediaSmart Expander for TiVo.
This software application lets TiVo owners store movies and shows on their MediaSmart Server as well as watch them on their PCs, thus offloading your DVR material to the MediaSmart Server and sharing it is now possible.
TiVo customers are already able to record and pause live TV, and access on-demand videos to watch hit movies and TV shows etc, but with this new HP software application, TiVo customers can now:
- Transfer shows from TiVo to a HP MediaSmart Server and back to TiVo
- View TiVo recordings stored on a HP MediaSmart Server
- Watch TiVo recordings that are stored on the HP MediaSmart Server on any PC in the home using Windows Media Player
Jason Zajac, vice president of Attach, HP Personal Systems Group, had this to say:
The HP MediaSmart Server is the ideal companion to TiVo. With the HP MediaSmart Expander for TiVo, consumers don‚??t have to worry about running out of high-definition storage space since they can save their movies and shows on the HP MediaSmart Server and watch them on any computer in the home.
