If you own both a TiVo Premiere DVR and any iOS device (especially an iPad,) you should take a moment to check out the new TiVo Stream if you haven't already. What is TiVo Stream? In short, it's a device to connect to your home network that allows you to stream your recorded TiVo shows to your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad--up to four devices at a time. Additionally, you can also copy over shows from your DVR to watch on the go. Our TiVo Stream review will be out later this morning, but for now, we've got a few images for you in our TiVo Stream unboxing gallery. You can pick up TiVo Stream for $129.

TiVo has announced its latest product, the TiVo Stream. Set to hit stores on September 6, the TiVo Stream is a network transcoder device that will allow users to stream content directly from a TiVo Premiere unit over to portable and mobile devices. At launch, the Stream with work exclusively with iOS devices, so if you own an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you'll be able to use up to four of those devices at once to watch content from your TiVo box, without the hassle of interrupting someone who's doing it old-school and watching TV on the couch. You'll be able to pick up the TiVo Stream for $129.
TiVo takes some time at Digital Experience from CES to show us their latest iteration of TiVo Desktop, version 2.6. Version 2.6 includes some very cool features, including the ability for users to automatically push web-based video and podcasts (like like ours) straight down to their TiVos automatically. We talk about availability and what else to expect coming down the pipeline from TiVo in the near future in this video.

We caught up with our peeps over at TiVo during CES and hit them up with a few questions about the newly announced TiVoToGo software for the Mac. We got a brief demonstration of the software, which is built-in to Roxio Toast 8, which shows off a bunch of it’s functionality. If you are on a Mac and looking to move your TiVo content to your computer, your moment has arrived.
TiVo announced today that TivoToGo would be available for Macs through Roxio’s Toast 8 program. This will finally allow Mac users to pull down their TiVo content to their Macs, though they have to pay $69.99 for the privilege (and that’s after a $30 instant rebate for a limited time.) As a regular user of the PC version of TivoToGo, I find value in it, but I’m not sure I’d be quick to part with $70 so easily. Oh, and it only works with Series 2 since the Series 3 has restrictions on file transfer because of the CableCard compatibility.
It’s available now, so have at it Mac-users!
